Chekt Video Analytics/Verification Bridge Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published Dec 07, 2021, 09:57am EST

CheKT claims to "upgrade your existing alarm system to a state-of-the-art visual alarm monitoring platform" combining video analytics and video verification in their Bridge.

IPVM Image

To see how it really worked, we bought and tested the CHeKT CKB304V2 4-channel bridge, examining:

  • How does it integrate video analytics to central stations?
  • How can it be added to existing alarms for video verification?
  • What manufacturers' analytics are supported?
  • How well does its privacy mode work?
  • How can dealers manage multiple systems?
  • How does the end user app work?
