Rhombus Systems camera integration

Kisi offers a state-of-the-art integration with Rhombus Systems's security cameras aimed at administrators with strict security or compliance requirements.

Whenever a security relevant event is recorded in the Kisi platform, it will download a roughly ten second video snapshot on and around the timestamp of the event. This snapshot can, once downloaded, be viewed in the activity stream of the customer's place or organization.

For more details about how cameras work inside of Kisi, please refer to the Cameras concepts.

Prerequisites#

  • Rhombus Systems cameras with API access
  • Kisi account administrator rights

Downloaded snapshots#

One video snapshot is download filming nine to ten seconds (in total) around the time the event happened.
