Smartphone App Automatically Pushes Live Video to Safety and Security Personnel
A new integration between OnSSI’s Ocularis video management software (VMS) platform and the ELERTS software solution enables security personnel to receive immediate, actionable information about incidents occurring anywhere within a facility, campus or transit system. Now any individual with a smartphone can be an active participant in maintaining a more secure environment.
When an individual with a smartphone submits an incident report using the ELERTS application, ELERTS cloud-based software matches the GPS location of that smartphone with a database of camera field of view polygons. Information is instantly sent to Ocularis, which then automatically pushes live footage from the camera closest to the incident to a command center or other display.
“The Ocularis-ELERTS integration delivers a solution that enables better, faster communication of incidents,” said Gadi Piran, President and CTO, OnSSI. “The open architecture of Ocularis enables us to work closely with developers of industry-leading technology to create practical and useful new applications for video management solutions.”
“The ELERTS system, in combination with OnSSI Ocularis Video Management Software, creates a breakthrough in usefulness for a surveillance network,” said Ed English, CEO, ELERTS. “We’re pleased to work with OnSSI to empower this new technology.”

ELERTS is creating better emergency response systems by embracing high-speed mobile networks, smartphone technology and cloud computing. Traditional ER systems push out static messages through lowest common denominator methods, often SMS. ELERTS transcends those approaches by empowering citizens with smartphones and tablets to share real-time eyewitness emergency or disaster reports – using crowdsourcing, and to receive official public safety notifications. ELERTS is licensing its Public Safety smartphone communication platform to transit systems, college campuses, power utilities and hospitals nationwide. For more information, visit ELERTS.com.
