Rishi Lodhia, Managing Director EMEA, Eagle Eye Networks discusses the company’s product offering for 2022 and beyond.
Can you tell us about your work in the UK market?
Eagle Eye Networks is the leading global provider of cloud-based video surveillance products for physical security and business operations, delivering secure video with artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics.
We offer our solutions on a global scale and have a dedicated, native team available in most European regions; the same goes for the market in the United Kingdom. Our UK-based team is building a strong community of IT/security system integrators and consultants to provide the best support and experience for our end users in the UK market. Next to that, our partner ecosystem is enhanced significantly with our technology partner program to offer customers the opportunity to meet the growing challenges of their business.
What makes Eagle Eye Networks stand out in such a competitive market?
Eagle Eye Networks stands out with a system built to be flexible to the customer’s needs. Any customer can add cloud surveillance to their existing security system without replacing any cameras or buying new ones – that is unique to our system. Our AI-driven VMS (video management system) supports cameras from hundreds of manufacturers, giving customers the ability to choose the right camera for their needs and budget.
We also offer flexible pricing plans, a wide array of advanced analytics and a platform enabling integration via our open API with various systems for unlimited customisation, which other companies don’t always propose.
How do you see the cloud video surveillance market developing?
We are watching video surveillance being transformed from a security system to a core business intelligence system, improving efficiency and effectiveness as well as security and we are very proud and excited to be on the leading edge of that transition. Thus, the video surveillance market is developing to the benefit of users. New technologies and systems simplify their work while remaining very businesslike. Anyone can now ensure the security of their business with the snap of a finger. AI is one of the key technologies that offer major benefits for video surveillance and keeps growing with time, becoming more accurate thanks to millions of reliable analytics to always meet customers’ needs.
How are you planning to further enhance your product offering in 2022 and beyond?
We are constantly innovating to remain competitive and at the forefront of the market. This year, we have already released the Eagle Eye LPR, which allows accurate license plate recognition even under challenging conditions.
Later in 2022, we will release our newest feature, Eagle Eye Smart Video Search. It allows users to search for people, vehicles, or objects and immediately find the exact video across all cameras on all sites. It improves business operations and uses AI to measure analytics on people counting and line crossing to provide insights on all business operations.
Through AI, we will always bring out new technologies to delight our customers. After Eagle Eye LPR and Smart Video Search, the year is just starting for us and we are off to do great things in the coming months.
What are your other plans for the next 12 months?
Our plan is to continue investing significantly in the expansion of our global partner ecosystem to serve our customers and users better. We focus on continually innovating by shaping the future of video surveillance by unlocking the potential of AI on our cloud video surveillance platform.
