How Azena’s camera Operating System and Application Store work
Integrating third-party systems is often a challenge. Azena gives you the full flexibility to create the solutions your customers have in mind.
- Integrate into a software platform: Connect to cloud, on-premise software, and platforms such as AWS, Azure, Microsoft Power BI, and Thingsboard. Native integration is enabled using common IoT protocols such as MQTT or REST for deep and custom exchange of data such as alerts for intrusion detection, overcrowded areas, or smoke and fire and analytics data like demographic statistics, counting, heatmaps, and many more.
- Automate physical devices: Connect to actuators in the physical world via GPIO pins and steer them based on specific app events such as apen parking barriers, control lights and manage access control.
- Integrate into a VMS: The Azena OS is based on the industry-standard ONVIF Profile S and T that allows plug & play compatibility with any VMS that supports ONVIF to discover and configure camera streams, consume video stream and recordings, transmit metadata such as bounding boxes and enable app events.
The Azena operating system is designed to enable standard integrations. In addition to this, Application Developers can add custom integrations for their apps.
