In the classic situation
Operators in a classic control room environment are challenged to keep an eye on all monitors with live video footage from all connected CCTV cameras. Video is typically streamed to a VMS (Video Management System) to gather evidence and reconstruct incidents after the fact. But there are limitations on how many monitors one can expect the control room operator to attend to while being able to analyze and decide if the incident needs immediate attention. In particular for use cases where incidents are not expected to happen frequently but require close attention when they occur. With CyberGate, we've fixed this problem.
It starts with a single IP Camera
Even with just one single IP Camera or without a complete control room, CyberGate for IP Cameras To Teams takes much work off your hands. By merging all devices in the platform, you already work with, analyzing and responding is a piece of cake. Let's get to it!
How does it work
First of all, you want to “arm” your SIP-enabled IP Camera – with built-in mic and speaker – to get triggered on a combination of events, like motion detection, the absence of motion during a configurable period, audio detection that exceeds preset thresholds and duration, people count (activity intensity), activation of an input contact (from external alarm button), etc. Secondly, use CyberGate to connect the IP Cams to your Microsoft Teams environment.
An incident occurs
In case of an incident, the IP Camera connects instantly to a Teams meeting
It gets recorded
The incident is automatically recorded right away with audio and video footage
2-way audio and video

Gathering evidence / Incident report
Besides having a live vision of the incident, start collecting evidence simultaneously. All triggered events can be recorded by our recording tool and safely stored in Microsoft Azure for the pre-configured Retention Period. This way, you can create a timeline that serves as a reconstruction and accident report. What happened, where did it take place, and who was involved.
