What is IoT?

IoT stands for Internet of Things. It refers to a system where everyday objects are connected to the internet and can communicate with each other. These objects, known as “smart” devices, can collect and share data, as well as perform tasks automatically without human intervention. The goal of IoT is to make our lives more convenient, efficient, and interconnected by enabling objects to interact and exchange information through the internet.

We are proud to offer our IoT solutions such as:

  • Surveillance Cameras
    • Digital Video Recorder (DVR)
    • High-Definition Multimedia Interface
    • Ceiling Mounted 360 Degree Cameras
    • Thermal Cameras
    • DVR Controller Software and Facial Recognition Technology
  • Smart Locks
  • Alarm Panels

Surveillance Cameras

Netmaker Communications Video Surveillance Solutions employs Internet Protocol (IP) technology to deliver High Definition Television (HDTV) quality video in 1080p resolution using up to 50/60 frames per second (FPS).

We sell businesses security cameras that operate in all lighting conditions, so your equipment performs when and where you need it. In low light, the camera automatically adapts the exposure resulting in high quality low noise video delivery. We deliver corridor format, pixel counter, remote zoom and focus as well as aperture control. The camera employs the use of a bandwidth compression technology to reduce the bandwidth and storage demands on the camera station appliance. Video is captured using industry standards-based H.264 CODEC technology.

Digital Video Recorder (DVR)

The Digital Video Recorder (DVR) we install for customers comes in a variety of configurations and storage capacity options. Administrator access is supported through a web-based user experience delivering a dashboard of active cameras that the administrator can access from their computer, smart phone or tablet.

High-Definition Multimedia Interface

High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) outputs on the DVR allow for the display to be projected into wall mounted 4K UHD flat screen displays for larger projections of the captured video.

Ceiling Mounted 360 Degree Cameras

Ceiling mounted 360 degree cameras can be installed to capture either an overview of a floor space, or dewarped views such as panorama, view area, corridor and quad views with high quality sharpness. Optionally, the unit can support streaming 720p HD video to a remote HDTV capable monitor for viewing. Depending on the configuration, the cameras can support quality video in 1080p resolution using up to 30 frames per second (FPS), or in the dewarped mode, they drop down to 720p HD and 15 FPS.

Thermal Cameras

Our thermal surveillance cameras can be deployed and used for heat detection, often emitted from living mammal life forms. This sensor is delivered with a built-in window heater for harsh winter weather conditions. The resolution of 640×480 (VGA) provides heat image video capture of up to 30 FPS. Additionally, the sensor is equipped with an audio jack for interconnecting a microphone for capture sound on conjunction with the heat video. Heat image video is captured using industry standard-based H.264 CODEC technology. The camera invokes username/password protection and IP address filtering to secure remote access.

DVR Controller Software and Facial Recognition Technology

The DVR controller software comes with a variety of Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities that can be configured to support a variety of functions. Specific applications include full face recognition and people counting.

The full facial recognition installed with our DVR systems captures details with amazing accuracy. With the facial features of a human face, it analyzes the points captured with a pre-prepared database of images associated with a company directory. When the software identifies a match, the software will bring up a “pop-up” window with the identification details of that person. If you are having visitors coming to your office, they can send you a simple “selfie” picture of themselves off their smartphone, which can be used by the software to identify them before their arrival.

Another use is the ability for the administrator to draw a virtual line within the video image and human body captured crossing that virtual line is counted and tallied within a register. This tool is ideal for store owners who may be wanting to log how many shoppers are entering and leaving their store on a daily basis.

We are proud to provide the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding areas with security cameras and DVR installations.

Smart Locks

Outfit your business with advanced security commercial keyless door locks. Shop a variety of styles including mechanical, electronic, fingerprint and more. The amount companies are spending today on locksmiths to get rekeying done and helping with lockouts can be used to pay for new locks. These new locks are keyless which removes the threat of keys being copied or stolen, bringing peace of mind to you company. As well as potentially leaving your business vulnerable to tampering or theft.

Smart Locks are perfect for companies such as healthcare, schools and universities, and lodging. If you have a business you want to better protect, then Smart Locks are the way to go.

Alarm Panels

We are strategically teamed with, a commercial cloud-hosted security management service that integrates via the internet with on-premises sensors and delivers a consolidated “dashboard” listing site locations and sensors per location to you. Activity is monitored and when an event is captured, notifications are pushed out to you and your approved user list if you choose to have one, notifying them of the event. These notifications come in a form of text messages and emails. Graphic displays show color coded statuses of sensors displaying whether an entrance is locked or has been unlocked. Sensors can be remotely controlled via the applications to allow you to control the sensors without having to physically be there on premise.
