Boring Toolbox Extends Large Enterprise Functionality and Compatibility with Leading VMS and Cameras

V3 of award-winning Boring Toolbox now handles datasets up to tens of thousands of cameras and hundreds of thousands of devices, while providing easier administration and management of cybersecurity and data regulations compliance

LAS VEGAS (ISC West) – April 10, 2019
– The Boring Lab today announced that The Boring Toolbox, a set of performance and maintenance tools to help customers more efficiently manage Milestone Systems’ XProtect® video surveillance networks, has added key features for enterprise and large-scale sites with 5,000+ cameras and 100,000+ devices. The Boring Toolbox V3 offers a smoother user experience and optimized performance features, both of which were necessary to support larger installations.

The Boring Toolbox allows customers to maintain a higher level of security through streamlining management tools (including bulk password changing, camera settings modifications across dissimilar devices, and providing optimized and hassle-free report generation in Excel).  In addition, The Boring Toolbox assists in data protection regulation compliance, such as GDPR, since customers can manage medium-to-large scale datasets within VMS systems, rather than having to work on each device separately.
Enhancements to Boring Toolbox V3 include:
  • Optimized to reduce loading times of the application by 85%
  • Optimized for large data sets of 4000+ device groups, 100,000+ devices
  • Optimized generating camera report by approximately 60%
  • Bulk IP address updating
The Boring Toolbox is now compatible with new systems and devices. Siemens Building Technology verified that it is compatible with survelliance VMS (video management system). The Boring Toolbox can now manage camera deployments from Arecont, Axis, Hanwha, Sony and Bosch.
“The initial release of The Boring Toolbox has been applauded by the Milestone community. After coming off of our recent win as Milestone Solution Partner of the year, we’ve delivered Version 3 to support larger enterprise installations tackle surveillance network issues around cybersecurity and GDPR compliance,” said Ronen Isaac, CEO of The Boring Lab. “Additional integrations with Siemens and camera manufacturers further extends the Boring Toolbox’s value and our promise to make Milestone installations less boring to manage.”
