“OnSSI’s solutions have had significant impact in curtailing vandalism, break-ins and graffiti.  Video is also very easy to access, which is a great help for legal reasons, and in resolving disputes as to who did what. We were able to install the system ourselves with our own particular needs in mind, and it has proven to be easy to use and maintain.”

 “We chose OnSSI because of its ease of interoperability and ease of configuration. Also, the ability to browse and search the video is important to our campus police department.  In addition, OnSSI adopted H.264 technology early and that was a huge benefit for us. We were able to deploy the cameras without having to buy a new server and recorder system.”

--Chip Greene, Senior Network Specialist, University Of Richmond

“Part of the beauty of the OnSSI system is its ability to integrate with multiple systems.  It is very open. We had no problem integrating analytics, and we can switch cameras whenever we want to.  It is an open solution and works with products we need it to work with.”

“The OnSSI system has expanded with our recording needs as we have added more schools and cameras. It's very easy for end-users to view live and archived recording. The client software is easy to install, and since its Active Directory (AD) was integrated, we spend almost no time managing the software.”

“OnSSI's open-architecture, scalable, non-proprietary PSIM system lets you integrate myriad cameras and other endpoint solutions into a unified client application facilitating the management and coordination of video and event information.  What’s more, since Purdue is an engineering college, they pride themselves on choosing systems based on their engineering excellence, so Ocularis DS is a great fit.”

“The University Police Department’s number one priority is to provide a safe and secure learning environment for the campus community.  When we consider any technology procurements, be they surveillance cameras, emergency alert systems, or emergency telephones, we want to be certain they serve that priority and enhance safety. I believe the OnSSI solution does that.”

“The OnSSI video surveillance control and management solution allows us to easily export data from anywhere on the network and send it anyplace we want in any format.  It’s very efficient and easy to use, as are the control functions for PTZ cameras allowing even novices to operate them. As we continue to expand the video surveillance system here at the Beaumont Independent School District, OnSSI’s video control and management solution continues to exceed our expectations.”

“When we first started looking at various IP video surveillance control solutions on the market, it was quite overwhelming.  However, once we started to narrow down the offerings, it became apparent that one solution stood out above the rest – OnSSI. When evaluating the ability to customize the user experience, while still keeping the system very intuitive, no company’s product matched the ability of OnSSI.  Now we have templates and standards built using OnSSI’s solution that we use on various projects. Our installation times are shorter and the customer receives a premier solution with open architecture so they are not locked into any manufacturers’ cameras.”

“We looked at other software, but Ocularis is very reliable and doesn't crash, which is the worst thing that can happen with a security system, Ocularis also has a very large selection of [compatible] cameras to choose from, but the real key is reliability.”

“The Tucson police department loves the video we produce from the OnSSI system.  It's clear, crisp and makes it easy to make cases. Video is critical in hospital situations where there is liability. We can investigate what happens. In several instances, physical altercations were picked up. We can burn it onto a CD to be taken into evidence. In the past, the analog devices didn't have the quality that was needed.”

--Jerry Anderson, ESM, Inc.

“The cameras are out there and running real time.  If we see or are alerted to some activity, we can immediately send officers to that activity.  There’s a big difference between that and reviewing video after the fact.”

“OnSSI and AMAG made it possible for us to greatly improve our overall security.  There is a night and day difference between what we have now and what we had before.  We are one of the first airports in the Southeast US to install an all digital system, and had great concerns about how it would all work out.  But the level of automation and intelligence and convenience has all been worth it.  We have eyes all over the airport now, and the advantage of video alerts tied to various other systems, like access control, so that an i.d. swipe brings up a picture that right away lets us know if the face on the badge matches the person in question.  This allows our security staff to be more mobile and effective overall, and in the long run saves both time and money by streamlining security processes.”

--Scott Van Moppes, I.T. Manager, Myrtle Beach Airport

“For our hospital security needs, we can’t imagine a better security system.  We can access whatever video footage we need simply and quickly, which is key for safety and legal issues as well being a huge time saver. The system’s wide range of functionality is complimented by its ease of use, so that security staff can learn it in very little time.”

“In the past, when there have been incidents like this…it was hard for the police or the district attorney to understand what happened... [With the OnSSI system] I was able to follow the sequences from the time that the person entered, while he made his way through the store to the places where incidents occurred.”

“A system like this is a strong deterrent for criminals and helps prevent problems from occurring, and ROI cannot be calculated for events that don’t occur... “One area where it will provide tangible ROI is in detecting damaged packages, as we can clearly see if a package was damaged when it came to us and have the ability to prove it using recorded video. The integrated IP video surveillance solution from OnSSI has surpassed our objectives.”

-- Mike Gilpin, Director of Security at DHL
