Can Trikdis provide server service for our customers?

We can create a custom service for each security company, so it would have their own web-service running with their logo and graphics; and it can run in our server, using existing Protegus apps. Running custom services in our server, we can manage and upgrade them centrally, so security companies would not need to have a dedicated system administrator. With a cloud setup, there is no need to do separate installations in Linux server, do separate maintenance, and upload custom apps in marketplaces.

Can Protegus be integrated with monitoring software?
Protegus can work in two modes: as stand-alone and with monitoring software. Protegus will read events from monitoring software database. In this mode, it can work even with 3rd party systems without any Trikdis equipment, but functionality will be limited – displaying area status and events.
Note: When integrating with monitoring software, Protegus can still run in our Server to avoid additional installation. Communication with monitoring software would be via IP. If monitoring software does not support IP inputs, IP to serial bus converter can be used.
