Cook Security Group (CSG) successfully unveiled its new privately branded video surveillance solution, Piko VMS, during their 2019 Technology & Innovation Summit.
Cook named Razberi Technologies as their hardware partner to provide the intelligent appliance and health monitoring component to their new VMS brand.
“While we still have strong relationships with our traditional video partners, we wanted to provide an open cloud-enabled platform to deliver seamless integrations of multiple technologies. This is beyond just video, as we have already integrated with dozens of apps such as analytics, alarm, access control, retail, HR, IoT…the list goes on. All designed to bring our customers efficiencies and give them the technology they’ve been waiting for” states Brian Cook, CEO of Cook Security Group.
“We are excited because Piko is Secure, Simple, and Open. Secure because all traffic is encrypted including video and outbound only. Simple because Piko is extremely user-friendly, needs no enterprise requirements or complexity, and offers adaptive scaling. Open because Piko offers endless APIs and ways to integrate. Those three together creates an industry changing solution for our Financial & Commercial Customers,“ adds CTO Levi Daily.
Piko also includes a wide variety of video analytics and integrations, providing customized notifications, proactive machine learning, and 24/7 health monitoring. “Customers come to us with ideas or pain points and we develop then implement. They drive our solutions and Piko makes it easy” Brian adds. Piko fully integrates with Cook’s secure mobile & online interface, Cook Command Center, and includes 10GB’s of Cook’s Case Management module offering seamless secure sharing with law enforcement or other institutions.
