CheckMySystems Company Profile

By Sean Patton, Published on Aug 14, 2019

CheckMySystems says that too many users respond, "I get an email when something is wrong" when talking about their video system maintenance plan, and VMSes and camera manufacturer tools provide limited features and no automation.

We spoke to CheckMySystems, to better understand their system maintenance offering, target customers, and go-to-market:

  • Who is CheckMySystems
  • What NVR/VMSes Do They Support
  • How Much Does CheckMyCCTV Cost
  • Cybersecurity/Vulnerabilities Support
  • How Do They Use Cloud
  • What Differentiating Features Do They Offer
  • Go-To-Market Strategy
