Next Level Security Systems Unveils NLSS Gateway 2.2

Next Level Security Systems, a developer of a new breed of unified, networked security solutions, recently announced the release the NLSS Gateway 2.2, an upgraded version of the award-winning NLSS Gateway product suite that includes the addition of powerful event-action linkages, forensic analytics and peer-to-peer connectivity, to provide users with more out of the box than previously offered by open security platforms.

The NLSS Gateway 2.2 will be on display at Booth No. 2373 at ASIS.

“The recent release of the NLSS Gateway 2.2 is truly the next evolution in security,” said Peter Jankowski, chairman and CEO, Next Level Security Systems. “We’ve incorporated substantially innovative tools to improve performance and save bandwidth, while continuing to bring users the information they need in a format that is easy to use and understand.”

The NLSS Gateway 2.2, which integrates networked video management, IP access control, video analytics and intrusion from the ground up, features groundbreaking functionality that enables integrators to build business through delivering secure and easily accessible remote managed services to end customers. Users can tap into the inherent benefits of forensic analytics and clearly defined event management procedures to make quicker, more informed decisions. It also includes NLSS Remote Management Services, which draws on improvements in cloud-computing technology to offer more than other hosted service models currently used in the security market.

NextConnect is a groundbreaking addition to the award-winning NLSS Gateway and powers the Next Level RMS remote managed service package. With NextConnect, users connect directly from a remote PC to the local NLSS Gateway to interface with video, access control and other data. A secure connection is achieved through a central server to authenticate a user and the connection is made only to mutually trusted clients that are part of the same group. Video streams are more efficient because peer-to-peer connectivity enables direct connection from the client PC to cameras at the local site. Any subsequent user logging into the system establishes a direct connection with other users. This efficient routing of video and other data also reduces bandwidth and ultimately cost for the user. NextConnect also monitors system health and provides real-time alerts to reduce downtime.

NextIntelligence is the upgraded video analytics package embedded into the NLSS Gateway 2.2. It includes a forensic analytics tool that enables users to search through archived video using any analytic built-into the system. If video analytics were used at the time of recording, events generated are merged with the events captured with live analytics to streamline trends and reporting. NextIntelligence also adds three additional advanced algorithms including Dwell Time, Object Taken and Object Moved. The NLSS Gateway has a total of 10 built-in video analytics, which are offered at no additional cost or licensing fee.

NextEvent is the enhanced event management and linkage system. Event management queues automatically indicate high-risk incidents as priorities, lock critical events and restrict user-defined events from the event log. Users are also able to assign event status and record event note with date/time/user stamp, and assign multiple event filters. Incoming events can also be linked with specific actions. For example, an access denied alarm sets the corresponding area’s PTZ into motion. Users can choose from 42 pre-programmed events and 15 actions. NextEvent also offers enhanced search and viewing options.

The upgraded version of the NLSS Gateway also incorporates full-duplex audio and multi-site video display functionality.

“The NLSS Gateway 2.2 includes rich functionality that truly makes it stand out in the security marketplace. The new features, including the new event management platform, are not only innovative but easy-to-configure right out of the box,” said Tim Walsh, vice president, BCI Technologies Inc. “The Forensic Analytics stand out as it enables users to apply intelligence to recorded video, even if they did not have analytics in place when the footage was recorded. This provides exceptional value to the end customer.”

At its core, the NLSS Gateway is inherently different from other open security management appliances as it correlates data from traditionally separate subsystems without custom integration. The combined data is presented in a single, intuitive user interface to enhance overall situational awareness. When combined with Next Level RMS, users have the ability to access, configure and monitor all features of the NLSS Gateway across multiple sites from any location through Web browsers and mobile devices.

Based on open standards, the NLSS Gateway is part of a family of unified networked solutions including the NLSS HD Media Decoder, and a full line of NLSS Access Control edge devices, including access control panels, readers and card technologies. Next Level’s solutions also integrate with IP-enabled access control vendors, such as ASSA ABLOY, HID Global and Mercury and other brands of IP-based surveillance cameras.
