Security: just another Software-as-a-Service

And why is cloud so popular in the security industry? One of the reasons is instant customer feedback it automatically generates. We can see what features are popular, which in turn tells us what people want and expect more of.

SPC Connect is a hosted cloud-based solution designed specifically for installers to monitor, manage, and maintain SPC panels remotely from any location. The intrusion solution has been nominated finalist at Benchmark Innovation Awards 2018 in the Site Protection (software) category.

What’s new: Vanderbilt release new version of SPC Connect

SPC Connect 2.6 is a service release that adds new features to Connect.

Key features

  • Customer notification
  • User restrictions
  • Alarm verification via mobile devices

Customer notifications

Installers will now be able to communicate through the SPC Connect network directly to their customers. This feature will allow you to create a message that will appear directly in the user’s app and/or in their email. The messaging editor provides editing capabilities and the inclusion of links. The installer can also download the list of all customers interested in their message.

User restrictions

This enhancement is intended to give the security company greater control of the level of service they wish to offer through SPC Connect. The function allows the security company to define what operations are permitted by a user such as: Blocking Email; Blocking push notification; Blocking alarm verification; Blocking mobile app; and Blocking verification web.

Alarm verification via mobile devices

If an SPC panel is part of an SPC Connect installer account, then a new feature will activate on the user device that will allow the user to view verification data. If the SPC panel is not part of a company, or the company has chosen to block this feature, then the users of that panel will not see any change. When this enhancement is enabled, when an alarm occurs that has verification, the user will be able to view the data and talk and listen live to site.

Examining the risks and benefits of smart cities

Advancements in AI, as well as Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices, have made it possible for cities to increase efficiencies across services like transportation, water management, and healthcare. To do this, smart cities rely on interconnected devices to streamline and improve city services based on rich, real-time data.

However, the fast adoption pace of networked technologies is potentially creating a deep well of vulnerabilities. There are already millions of smart home devices in the world, including smart alarms, locks, lighting, baby monitors, and thermostats and televisions. It is predicted that there will be more than 21 billion connected devices by 2020.

The danger of hacks

As smart cities rely on accurate data to properly function, if information is hacked, it has the potential to bring a city to a standstill. For instance, traffic control systems could be exploited to cause jams or crashes. Other risks include subways grinding to a halt, or water supplies being contaminated.
