Meet Soteria. The software that facilitates the integration of 3rd party security endpoints.

December 5, 2023

Soteria is a service facilitating the integration of 3rd party access control and alarm systems with Cook Solutions Group’s Piko VMS and Cook’s Case Management.

On a configurable basis, any event created in access control or alarm system can be passed through to either Piko VMS, to Case Management or both.

The types of access control and alarm events that are monitored, as well as the corresponding actions to take when a particular event occurs, are fully configurable.

What is Soteria?

Piko VMS Events:

Passing an event through to Piko VMS offers the ability to create a rich notification in Piko, a detailed description of the event and a clickable link to the corresponding video. The corresponding video can also be automatically opened for the user, with an alert graphic in Piko when a particular type of event occurs. Users of the VMS client interface will automatically be alerted to selected events, on a configurable basis.

Command Center Events:

Passing an event through to Case Management will create a case, for tracking purposes, with details of the event automatically populated. Additionally, video streams of the given event are automatically attached to the case for easy viewing and tracking, all in one easily accessible location.

  • .NET4.6.2 or higher
