SMART cities are urban areas that use IP equipment and applications to collect data, oversee resources, and manage assets effectively. Most are made up of buildings, public spaces, streets, parks, and transportation. It’s the Security Teams’ responsibility to ensure all people and spaces, whether public or private, are safe and secure.

Most well-designed security systems include detection, alarms, intercoms, security video, access control, Security Guards, Police Officers, parking lots with barriers, and more.  After careful planning, installation, and testing of an appropriate security system, Security Teams must develop processes to mitigate risk and respond to incidents when they occur. This can be a mighty challenge in such a complex environment.

Most cities do not have fully integrated security devices and applications. In fact, multiple technologies often operating in silos, make it difficult to understand the complete picture. What’s more, most systems are not set up to monitor the operating status of each device or application. This makes it impossible to detect when something is down, malfunctioning, or compromised. Security Teams requires tools that offer detection as well as 24/7 remote and instant access along with speedy dissemination of good and productive information.

This is why SMART Cities rely on the Vunetrix SMART Dashboard. The Sensor Monitoring, Alerting, and Reporting Technology continuously scans the status, activity, and performance of every IP security device and application throughout the entire city. Having a single-view SMART Dashboard allows Security Teams to see system health and status through a single-pane-of-glass. What’s more, when there is a problem or anomaly detected, Security Teams are alerted in real-time via email.
By automating device and application health checks and providing visibility through a central location, SMART Cities can redeploy the guard force to other matters while maintaining a proactive approach to security management. In addition, risk mitigation and speedy time to resolution are achieved with unprecedented efficiency.
Undoubtedly, the Vunetrix SMART Dashboard gives SMART Cities peace of mind as they can count on proactive detection for security system issues and real-time alerts long before an incident occurs.
