OSSA unveils camera portfolio webpage

SAN RAMON, Calif. —The Open Security & Safety Alliance (OSSA), an industry body comprised of stakeholders from all facets within the security, safety and building automation space, announced the establishment of its “Driven by OSSA” Camera Portfolio page.

This central repository provides a convenient online location to feature OSSA members’ growing line-up of progressive video security cameras and edge devices that are part of an evolving OSSA-orchestrated ecosystem.

According to OSSA, this expanding catalogue provides unequivocal proof that the Alliance’s vision is transforming into a market reality with products steadily being introduced to market. Since its inception in late 2018, OSSA has encouraged its member companies to collaborate to solve common issues and therewith enable innovation and increase market and business opportunities with each other.

The market increasingly embraces the philosophy by OSSA to open up the safety and security category, and members are now delivering hardware offerings. The idea of an open ecosystem continues to unfold across the video security space as evidenced by industry leaders bringing to market “Driven by OSSA” devices:

· AndroVideo: Early OSSA member AndroVideo introduced its first “Driven by OSSA” Smart Edge fixed cameras (see the press release here).

· Bosch: The recently introduced Bosch MIC inteox 7100i and AUTODOME inteox 7000i operate on the Bosch INTEOX open camera platform (see the announcement here).

· VIVOTEK: OSSA founding member VIVOTEK recently launched its first “Driven by OSSA” cameras as part of its iNSIGHT series (see news here).

These first commercially available cameras can be seamlessly used in combination with third-party software applications. OSSA member company Security & Safety Things designed an online app store – another building block of the IoT infrastructure specified by OSSA – in support of uniting demand and supply in this open market.

Look for additional product announcements about cameras bearing the “Driven by OSSA” seal. The mark indicates devices that follow the OSSA Technology Stack for video security, and prescribes the use of the Alliance-inspired common operating system together with the first three available technical specifications.
