GKB IP Cameras and Cloud CMS enhance security in Saudi Arabia

GKB IP Cameras and Cloud CMS enhance security in Saudi Arabia

PROTTECH Smart Solutions is a professional IT & electronics consulting and installation company, with over 20 years’ experience in the surveillance industry. Based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, it is a Golden Partner of GKB. When their expertise in the field of low-current solutions won them the project to secure Caribou Coffee chain, the company decided to use GKB Cloud-CMS platform.

Challenging requirements
Caribou Coffee needed a centralized recording and monitoring system at their headquarters to access all of its stores spread out in different locations in Riyadh. This meant feeds from about three to nine IP cameras per branch had to be uploaded to the headquarters. However, the available bandwidth was only 2 mbps per branch.
Caribou Coffee did not want a Network Video Recorder (NVR) allocated in each store either, as it would complicate the process of getting the data transferred.

Offering the right solution

Cloud CMS to centralize IP cameras
GKB hosts a backbone server for clients worldwide. GKB Cloud-CMS enables users to register their cameras to the cloud server ( with their own ID and password.
When implemented for Caribou Coffee, GKB server allowed handshaking for users at each of its branches to transfer their video to the headquarters without any delay.
With a single account, admin users are now able to view and manage all the cameras anytime, anywhere. Since all the operations are processed on GKB Cloud, there was no need to purchase NVRs for each location. To top it all, the customer enjoys these benefits with the assurance of safety, security and privacy that GKB provides.

Remote recording/monitoring with 8 video streams
With this GKB solution, the customer needed to host just one standalone Linux-based NVR at the Central Monitoring Center in the headquarters. Admin users just need to type in their ID and password into the NVR. They do not need to remember and provide any IP address. The application of Linux NVR DN4808 remotely records data from all the cameras in over 7 branches.
GKB IP Cameras provide eight video streams per each camera, each of which has different bit rate in order to fit their bandwidth condition. This enables videos to be recorded without any delay and helps smooth playback.

Benefits of the solution
Admin users can create and manage hierarchical users on Cloud Management (, a browser-based management system that provides well-round functions including management, configuration, viewing  and playback. GKB provides a high-tech surveillance system which can easily be installed and maintained. The GKB Diplomat  solution marks remarkable advances in video surveillance. GKB will continue to design and provide innovative products to make the world a safer and more convenient place.
