In the past, video security systems have been siloed pieces of technology. A key transformation within modern enterprises is the ability for different forms of technology to work harmoniously with one another to improve efficiency throughout an organization. IT Managers are no longer looking for products that serve only a primary function, but instead, want products that can do more by integrating into multiple aspects of the business as well as its existing technology.
Our goal with Rhombus Systems is to provide organizations with video surveillance that is not only powerful but anyone from within an organization can quickly master and love to use every day. Our newest product feature further reinforces this goal, and we're proud to announce a new suite of enterprise integrations that will bring your video security system under the same umbrella as every other IT product. Today, Rhombus Systems can now integrate with other IT products – finally removing the line between IT and physical security.
Our suite of integrations can be broken up into the following categories -
You can now securely login to the Rhombus console using your own identity provider. All SAML/SCIM 2.0 services (Okta, Office 365, G Suite, and etc.) are fully supported creating a more seamless user experience. This feature is available for all Enterprise Subscriptions.
Easily configure how your organization gets notified and what the ideal workflow should be if specific people are seen, certain instances occur, or if cameras go offline. Incident Management is the first step in protecting your organization and Rhombus now supports integrations with PagerDuty, Slack, ServiceNow, and Jira (coming soon).
With video security, having a dependable storage option is critical. Now organizations and businesses everywhere have the ability to store important clips to their preferred cloud storage service. Storage integrations include G Suite, Office 365, Box, Dropbox, AWS, and Azure (coming soon). This allows you to have more flexibility with your storage options and reduces the need for unnecessary maintenance.
Unify all of your logging and system events with our new integration into Splunk. We’re constantly striving to provide the best video security system to our customers, so please let us know if you have other SIEM or log aggregators you’d like to integrate with.
All of these integrations are now available to customers with Professional or Enterprise Subscription Plans (SSO is exclusive for Enterprise). These integrations will continue to be developed and refined, so give them a try and let us know if you have any feedback!
Designing an intelligent video security platform that integrates with best-of-breed solutions has always been a fundamental feature of Rhombus. When a solution integrates with other systems, this provides organizations with maximum flexibility so that they can customize their security experience in a way that best aligns with how they operate. At Rhombus, our mission is to make the world a safer place, and today, we’re excited to announce our newest physical security integration with a leader in access control, ProdataKey.
For many schools, video security and access control are two important pieces of their overall physical security solution. Separately, both types of solutions improve safety and accountability for students and staff—but the real magic happens when they work together. By unifying video security and access control, school administrators can improve safety with automated entry verification and real-time monitoring of building access.
Many schools are searching for ways to battle underage vaping and protect the well-being of their students. The Rhombus + HALO integration is a powerful tool that combines video security with intelligent environmental sensors to provide automated vape detection with corresponding video footage.
