Smart Digital LLC., the manufacturer of Sentry PODS® is announcing its partnership with Cradlepoint®. Smart Digital prides itself with the innovation of Sentry PODS® for commercial and residential use. Smart Digital will partner with Cradlepoint® to use their software-defined 4G LTE network solutions in the manufacturing process of Sentry PODS®.
“We are thrilled to partner with Cradlepoint® and showcase our products in the leading security and surveillance regions of the world”, says owner and CEO of Smart Digital LLC., Brent Canfield. “Cradlepoint’s passion and dedication to making quality products is already well known. It is an honor to be able to work alongside their team. We are happy with the level of support we get from Cradlepoint. We chose Cradlepoint after putting them to the test. We tested and used Cradlepoint in extreme conditions at temperatures in excess of 30° below zero. We feel that Cradlepoint has lived up to our expectations with a robust and highly tenacious interface. One of the most favorable features of Cradlepoint is ECM, (Enterprise Cloud Manager). It allows us to remotely manage the units that are deployed in the field, but also manage the data services that connect them to the carrier.”
Brent Canfield is a former Marine that served as a Security Team Platoon Sergeant in 1st Marine Division during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He designed Sentry PODS® after the Boston Marathon bombing. Sentry PODS® were designed as a rapidly deployable surveillance solution to provide immediate access to a location and can be remotely connected to, within minutes of powering up. Sentry PODS® are a preventative measure to theft, vandalism or potential mayhem. Sentry PODS® are high definition quality, self-sustainable surveillance units with battery failover in the event of a power loss. There are options of AC or solar units for off the grid solutions where AC power may not be available. Sentry PODS® are capable of edge recording to the on board memory and can be remotely accessed for instant viewing.
“Cradlepoint’s software-defined 4G LTE solutions can be deployed quickly and securely, making it easy for network administrators to launch reliable connectivity wherever it is needed most. We help enterprises create flexible overlay networks that extend the benefits of existing primary networks by offloading support for non-core applications like surveillance, digital signage and Wi-Fi,” said Ed Walton, vice president, North American Channels and Alliances, Cradlepoint. “Our partnership with Sentry PODS® is a great fit, and we look forward to bringing always-on LTE connectivity to the company’s rapidly deployable, self-sustainable surveillance units.”
