Hidden Brains Approach

Security solutions play an instrumental role in the functioning of every business. Considering the core function was to offer a flexible licensed product to numerous businesses, the system needed the capability to manage multiple processes simultaneously using a Server-Client approach.


To ensure a resilient solution, careful planning was imperative. The individuals responsible for the process played a role in determining the most suitable approach. Extensive brainstorming took place, with the goal of creating a straightforward, enduring, and adaptable solution allowing all panels to be managed through a unified system.

The POC Phase

At the initial stage, we started with 4 security panels considering business viability & technical feasibility. The primary concern here was to evaluate the system to accurately respond and provide an alert to the customer through a single platform. These panels were controllable through a single system.

A POC was created using these 4 panels, and the client was very satisfied with the POC as it was exactly consistent with requirements and reflected the functionalities that they wanted.
