What is HikVision’s ProConnect?
In the simplest terms, HikVision’s ProConnect Cloud storage system is a modern, cloud-based solution designed for security system providers and installers (like us, here at Castle Security).
The ProConnect system is primarily used for the management of a variety of security systems that are all connected with the Hik-Connect service. These systems typically include CCTV and alarm systems, access control, intercoms and a range of other devices.
The ProConnect is often installed by businesses with the need to conveniently manage a range of systems with increased efficiency. When optimised, the ProConnect system can help create a streamlined workflow that can significantly reduce a business’ costs when it comes to interconnected security and data privacy.
Key features of HikVision ProConnect
- Extremely high levels of security
Above all, the biggest benefit to HikVision’s ProConnect system is its high security levels. All personal data (including phone numbers and email addresses) utilised within the system are encrypted, so you’ll have peace of mind that the system will protect your business’ data.
- Connectivity with other HikVision security devices
As the Internet of Things continues to grow at a rapid pace, it’s important that newly purchased devices can ‘talk’ to each other to form a useful, interconnected smart hub that can be managed from one centralised location. After having HikVision’s ProConnect installed, you’ll be able to easily sync it up with other security devices, such as cameras, control panels or intercoms, to allow all devices to work cohesively as one comprehensive system.
The Hik-ProConnect Box is a great place to start if you’re hoping to create an interconnected, cloud-based, smart security system. It offers plenty of cloud-based storage using HikVision cameras, the ability to support remote playback of cloud storage videos, and an intuitive control system on the remote Hik-ProConnect platform.
- Efficiency and convenience of a cloud-based system
As the ProConnect utilises cloud-based software to store data, you’ll have peace of mind that your system’s information is not only up-to-date, but archived in case you need to retrieve any older information.
Cloud-based systems are also incredibly simple to scale and adjust, so if you need to allow more users access, it won’t be tedious to set up. Often, the system manager will be able to toggle this themselves through a simple configuration tool – so you won’t even need to contact maintenance or technology assist teams for further assistance.
Thirdly, cloud-based security systems like the ProConnect are renowned for their simple accessibility. No matter where you are, you’ll be able to log into an application (typically a phone app) to monitor, check or control your system.
