GeckoEye deployed to Las Lomas

Heradura’s gated community, Las Lomas, has a number of single family dwellings. Most of these houses are privately owned by foreigners. Recently GeckoTech was contracted to provision the GeckoEye energy management service for one its owners. The primary purpose for the GeckoEye installation was not “energy savings” as is normally the case. Rather the unit owner decided to subscribe to GeckoEye because of GeckoEye’s by-products. Specifically, the ability to control locks, monitor activity in and around the property, and record video (in the form of snapshots) to a cloud service. The GeckoEye will allow owner to program the access control for Staff and Guests as well as reporting on when and how the property was used. It is expected that this unit owner eventually adds more sensors, lighting control and climate control. From his iPad, the unit owner is able to login to the GeckoEye automation computer and lock/unlock doors, as well as review video and property state.

Vista Las Palmas offers GeckoWatch managed service to unit owners..

Vista Las Palmas (VLP) has begun offering GeckoTech’s “GeckoWatch” managed service to it’s unit owners. With GeckoWatch, VLP can offer individual Video Surveillance cameras to monitor the entry ways of any/all private residences within the VLP tower. VLP unit owners, wishing to subscribe to the service will be charged a modest installation/setup fee and then monthly fee for the GeckoWatch service. GeckoTech will provision a state of the art IP camera outside the subscriber’s “main entry door”. The camera will record motion/activity 7×24 and retain history for 30 days. Subscribers can login using standard web technologies and view the camera(s) recorded history from anywhere in the world. The service now makes it “affordable” to monitor staff and traffic through the private residences.

The video recording server is a redundant DELL commercial rack server. This server hosts the award winning Milestone xProtect video recording software. The server will leverage the key components of the VLP infrastructure to include high speed data services and power generation/backup services.
