We enter 2020 with a new Ava Aware software release. Version 1.3 is packed with features designed to make security operators more responsive and enhance collaboration.
With webhooks, we respond to the needs of modern security teams, with members located in different sites—even different cities—overseeing one or more locations, and not always watching video monitors. Using webhooks, you can alert authorized users to Ava Aware’s alarms and events via Slack, Google Hangouts, Facebook Workplace, Cisco Webex, or any other communication tool of your choice.
Here’s a brief run-through of how easy we’ve made it for the security administrator of a commercial office building to set up webhooks and get real-time alerts in a Slack channel. First, set a new rule. In this case, select the line crossing rule for unauthorized access to a fire escape.
