    Discount Retailer Selects Interface As Internet Protocol Managed Service Provider Across Entire Retail Platform

    Interface Security Systems, a leading North American provider of Internet Protocol (“IP”) Bundled Managed physical security and secured managed network services announced last March that it has been selected by Family Dollar, Inc. as its IP Managed Service Provider across its entire retail platform. Family Dollar, a Fortune 300 company, recently completed a major initiative to modernize and refresh critical technology in each of its retail stores. The technology makeover, or Flat Rate Managed Service Project, as it is referred to, was launched in collaboration with Interface in July 2014 and completed in May 2015.

Mobile Access To Retail Video Is Finally Practical

Over the past several years, mobile clients such as smartphone and tablet apps have become a common method to access video on DVRs and video cameras. Most video recorders or video recording software is accompanied by an app which, along with some configuration on site, can be used to access live or recorded video.

Share Video Quickly And Easily

We heard a great story from one of our customers this week.  To identify a shoplifter, the store posted to their Facebook page a short video of the suspect.  Within 14 hours, the suspect was in custody.

Granting And Revoking Access To Video On A BYOD Device

Managing Network Traffic

A while ago I was at a customer site where MultiSight was being installed. I noticed that they already had a video system in the store–your typical low cost DVR with analog cameras. This system was being replaced by MultiSight. I asked the customer if this DVR setup had worked for them.  The answer was “Yes, but whenever we’d try to see the video remotely, we couldn’t process credit cards.” Attempts to view video remotely would saturate their network connection out of the store, and interfere with their Point of Sale (POS) system’s ability to process credit cards.
