Liberty Lake, WASH. – October 26, 2020 – OpenEye, a leading provider of cloud-managed video surveillance solutions, is announcing the expansion of its OpenEye Web Services Ecosystem through a new cloud-to-cloud integration with Feenics, an industry-leading cloud-based access control platform. The new integration links OpenEye’s powerful cloud-managed video platform, OpenEye Web Services (OWS), with Feenics’s innovative cloud-based access control solution, Keep, to provide real-time alert notifications and video verification of access events to users of the OWS platform.

“This integration combines the best of two leading cloud platforms, in the physical security space, to create a powerful solution for users,” says Rick Sheppard CEO and Founder of OpenEye. “OpenEye Web Services’ alerting engine delivers actionable intelligence to users by combining data points from our entire ecosystem of integrated partners and marrying them with video to give users the complete picture. Integrating with Feenics’ award-winning cloud-based access control solution delivers a highly compelling solution for users wanting to leverage access and video events as an operational tool to improve security and business intelligence.”

Building on the already released integration by Feenics to receive and display video from OWS in the Keep by Feenics access control platform, OWS now collects detailed access control events from linked accounts in Keep and feeds them into the OWS alerts engine, along with data from other connected systems such as alarm panels and video analytics. Users can create sophisticated alert rules based on access events to send real-time push notifications to mobile devices, on-screen alerts for users performing active monitoring, transmit alerts to central monitoring stations for verification, and analyze events through visual trend reports. The new integration benefits users by offering real-time intelligence with actionable alerts, video and audio verification of access events and streamlined incident investigation. This integration requires specific OWS subscription license levels.

“Both the partnership and product integration has been seamless since Feenics and OpenEye started the business relationship a couple of years ago,” Said Paul DiPeso, Feenics Executive Vice President. “Feenics resellers have continuously told us that the OWS integration to Keep has been the easiest video-access integration that they have deployed. Now that events from Keep can be pushed to OWS, I believe this provides them a best of breed user experience for cloud video/access control integration.”
