Aimetis Enterprise Manager™

Centralized cloud management for multi-site video surveillance

Aimetis Enterprise Manager (AEM) streamlines video surveillance-related IT operations through unified health monitoring and settings management, and automatic software and firmware updates, all from one central cloud-based interface. AEM is suited for installations with Symphony™ video management software (VMS), R-Series Network Video Recorders (NVRs), E-Series physical security appliances (PSAs), and Thin Clients.

Quickly identify offline cameras, storage failures, and CPU and memory threshold violations with an intuitive web-based console and email status summaries. Reduce risk with automated camera password updates, and increase compliance with the ability to explicitly define settings, which cannot be changed locally.

Features and benefits

  • Centralized Symphony VMS administration
    Allows administrators to manage settings across multiple servers in distributed network environments. Policy Templates allow for standardization of commonly configured items.  Precedence ensures that settings explicitly defined by AEM cannot be changed by local server administrators.
  • System health dashboard
    Monitor availability and health metrics for VMS servers, server farms, and cameras. Also track server CPU, memory, and storage use. A web-based dashboard provides on-demand access to deployment-wide system status, and health summary reports can be automatically emailed to administrators.
  • Auto-update
    AEM provides a cloud platform for VMS server software release management. Major and minor version upgrades and device pack updates can be scheduled to be installed immediately or within a specified change window.
  • Cloud backup
    Through AEM, Symphony server configurations can be periodically backed up to the cloud. In the event of misconfiguration or catastrophic server failure, settings can be easily restored.
  • AEM Bridge
    Purpose-built hardware device that is deployed on-premises. It works in conjunction with AEM to facilitate advanced camera management. With a compact footprint and powered by PoE, the Bridge makes efficient use of space and power. In distributed surveillance networks, one AEM Bridge will typically be required per site.
  • Camera Management
    Reduces the effort required to manage distributed network cameras. Using AEM Bridge, cameras are automatically discovered and inventoried. Camera firmware can be centrally updated from the cloud, without the need for on-site personnel. AEM automates camera password update policies, reducing risk and easing best practice adoption.
