Greater facility insights and intelligence with Ava Security’s new sensor integration

Press release

Customers can now access best-in-class sensor solutions within the Ava Aware platform for full facility visibility

London, November 18, 2021Ava Security has launched the ability to install third-party sensors into Ava Aware Cloud, the open data platform for building and facilities intelligence. By merging this intelligence gathering security system with sensor technology, organizations can unlock the enhanced situational awareness of security along with facility management, staff well-being, and productivity. Siloed unconnected systems have long been a challenge for organizations seeking greater insights and better building security. Integrations either require heavy, custom development, or organizations are often forced into a single vendor lock-in when moving to certain cloud vendors.  

Organizations can now use the open Ava Aware data platform to easily integrate with third-party sensors and capture insights into their sites' activities and environmental conditions. Users can set rules for real-time notifications and alerts for readings such as abnormal noise levels, temperature, proximity, touch, humidity, smoke, vape, chemicals, and gas, allowing organizations to act quickly on environmental incidents. The sensor data is combined with other insights such as video security footage through a single interface, allowing organizations to get a clearer picture of the security incidents that could impact their facilities, assets, and people. It also supports businesses in deriving value beyond security, gathering data that can help achieve greater efficiency and improve the bottom line. 

Ava Security has direct integrations with the Halo smart sensor from IPVideo Technology and the tiny wireless sensors from Disruptive Technologies. Customers also have the option to integrate with other sensor providers of their choice through Ava’s open API platform.

There is immense power in the visibility gained by combining the data from sensors with intelligent video security systems as it creates a far clearer picture for an organization. Historically, this wasn’t possible because systems were too difficult to set up, often disconnected from one another, and organizations had to rip and replace existing investments to install software and devices from a single provider. Ava’s open architecture solves this problem for organizations, providing them with a cost effective and flexible solution that utilizes the best technology on the market.”

The Ava Aware Cloud is also incredibly flexible, allowing customers to: 

  • Connect sensors in minutes, set up rules, and notify users in real time
  • View sensors on intuitive floorplan maps
  • Associate sensors with cameras with simple drag and drop
  • Remotely monitor sensors from anywhere in the world
  • Secure sensor data through end-to-end encryption, SSO, and 2-factor authentication

Ava Security is at the forefront of physical security and access control solutions. We are looking forward to seeing customers unlock the value from our combined products and services through this partnership. The Ava Aware system, enhanced by the DT sensors, unlocks huge potential for real time insights for organizations to inform their security and facility management.”
