Technology Solutions A-Z
The term access control refers to the practice of restricting entrance to a property, a building, or a room to authorized persons. Physical access control can be achieved by a human, through mechanical means such as locks and keys, or through technological means such as access control systems. the latest innovations employ pass-codes, smart badges, key fobs, and bio-metric access for entry. Granting access has never been easier with full support for mobile apps, remote control and monitoring. Remote Design Group can provide consultation, design, system penetration testing, and help manage your assets. We also provide road mapping, and help managing vendor / manufacturer relationships.
Asset management is a systematic process of developing, operating, maintaining, upgrading, and disposing of assets in the most cost-effective manner (including all costs, risks and performance attributes). Companies do a great job at managing their product inventory, but don't often have time, knowledge, or software infrastructure in place to manage all the data that goes into technology infrastructure management. Let us design a custom data management system for your technology, and help you manage life cycles, service, and more.
Managing and locating important assets is a key challenge for almost any business. An RFID asset tracking system uses electromagnetic fields to transmit data from an RFID tag to a reader. Whether you are talking about office equipment in a multi-story building, wheelchairs and IV pumps in a large hospital, tools and equipment in a factory, or pumping equipment in far-flung oil fields, RFID can provide accurate, real-time tracking data for fixed and mobile assets.
Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somato-sensory and olfactory modalities. Common applications include heads up data, training, and information displays, product media and information linked to product locality, and virtual representation of future project developments such as architecture and construction planning.
Network infrastructure describes the system of interconnected hardware and software resources that enable connectivity of networked devices. Design, installation, operation and management of an enterprise networks is a challenging task. Providing the communication path and services between users, processes, applications, services and external networks/the internet, it's mission critical to get it right. If you're a small business that needs help building or growing a network, or a large organization needing help with documentation, vendor management, and road mapping strategy, we should talk.
Command center video wall technology allows your agents and engineers to make informed decisions. In some cases, a wide variety of sources must be available to be viewed on the video wall. Intuitive control systems give your staff an easy to operate interface to rapidly view the sources they need to monitor. Reliability is a must, and any design should include full redundancy, backup and emergency power delivery, and a dedicated network specially designed for networked audio and video solutions. When it comes to mission critical systems, we deliver state of the art performance, and proven reliability.
As the world becomes increasingly digital, communication technology is helping bridge gaps between teams and businesses.

DEMO ROOM & SHOWCASES
For many businesses today, coming up with new ideas for innovative demo rooms is a big challenge. If you are a business that relies on pitching, presenting or demonstrating to clients to get those ideas off the ground, then you will recognize the growing need for a meeting space that enables that process. That space must allow for not only the presentation of ideas, but also for the process of gaining feedback and interaction from clients. You can't know what do you, when you don't know what you can do. The sky is the limit with Remote Design Group, it's OK to have your head in the clouds some times!
No matter if you’re a small business owner, a corporate exec for a global company, or someone in between, the bottom line is this: digital signage is today’s golden ticket to captivating your target audience, elevating the customer experience, and as a result, driving greater sales. It’s that simple. The sophistication found in today's market leading signage technology will blow your mind!

If you own a retail store, whether large or small, you’re always striving to find ways to differentiate your business from competitors. One of the ways you can do this is through a commercial audio system for your store that not only entertains and retains customers, but can improve employee morale and retention, and act as an extension to your brand. We can help with system design, installation, and even content distribution. A poorly installed system can often do more harm than good and increase cost, so it’s imperative to consider the key values and benefits of a professional commercial audio system for your retail store, and hire a professional .
International studies indicate that the use of smart mobile devices and their accompanying educational applications (apps) can revolutionize young children’s learning experiences. Although there is a vast array of educational apps for preschoolers, they are not actually educational in their majority. To evaluate educational mobile apps, we suggest creating an evaluation rubric in four key areas: content, design, functionality, and technical quality. We have found the best solution to be guided, custom curriculum development.
EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEMS
While the advent of mobile phone technology offers communication access to anyone, anytime, for large open areas, Alert Paging systems are still the most efficient way to deliver emergency alerts.
Manufacturing plants, industrial parks, public or municipal areas, and other multi-facility campuses are best served by giant voice notification using text-to-speech (TTS) or mobile integration technology. It's critical to accurately measure the sound levels in the environment, and plan a solution that will meet all the requirements for intelligibility, loudness, and reliability.
It is important for public safety agencies (such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and fire services) to be able to provide and maintain communications before, during, and after a disaster or emergency. Quick communication can be the difference between triumph and tragedy, and reliability is key to operational effectiveness in emergency situations. Disasters may require resources beyond what local and state authorities can manage. We provide communications consultation for both Command & Control Centers, and Emergency Mobile Vehicle Communications. This is the truck from our home county, York Maine. Our founder Caleb is proud to have helped design and program both the mobile response unit, and the command center systems at Y.C.E.M.A. (York County Emergency Management Agency) York County, Maine.
It’s hard to imagine a society without school buses. The big yellow bus has been ferrying children to school, to field trips, and safely back home for generations.

There are two new forms of immersive technology talking the world by storm right now. Virtual and Augmented Reality, and Immersive Digital Spaces, also called Projection Caves. This man is standing in an enclosed room where can choose the environment that surrounds him. Want to experience an Egyptian villa, the Swiss Alps or a Coral Reef? You choose. Just 10 years ago, this technology was only available to huge theme parks like Disney and Universal. Today, we can deliver mobile or installed solutions that fit any size and budget.
INFORMATION & DATA DISPLAYS
Service centers run and grow based on reading metrics and data. If you're not seeing your data in real time, you're not reacting fast enough. Unified reporting software and contact center display products combine data from your in-house databases, to provide agents and managers KPI’s that drive and improve performance. Reviewing critical data items, acting on variances from goals, and surveying the agent threshold analytics are all standard practices in contact centers who are enabled to utilize unified reporting software.
Remote Design Group believes customer experiences can and should be magical. A popular example of interactive technology is this sandbox, that projects topological images onto it in real time, as you re-shape the sand.

Today, new technologies such as smartphones and social media platforms offer new ways to communicate with the public, and the information ecosystem is much broader. Include additional official channels, such as government social media accounts, opt-in short message service (SMS)-based alerting systems, and reverse 911 systems. Integrate mainstream media outlets and weather applications on connected devices; and unofficial channels, such as first person reports via social media.
Many media and entertainment organizations struggle with the challenges of content storage, transformation, and distribution. As production standards rise from HD to UHD/4K, 8K, and beyond, the amount of data associated with any given project grows exponentially. Adding to these concerns are the rapidly changing methods of bringing media content to consumers. Broadcast over a limited number of channels has given way to hundreds of ways to consume media via over-the-air, cable, satellite and Internet connections, using broadcast, on-demand, and streaming models.

NETWORKING FOR AUDIO & VIDEO
AV over IP stands for “Audio-Visual over Internet Protocol”. It is the transmission of audio-visual data over a network such as a LAN, WAN, or the internet. As opposed to traditional AV environments, AV over IP (also known as AV/IP) refers to the use of network equipment to transmit and switch video and audio. Specific networking hardware is sometimes required. Factors across all network topology layers both physical and virtual must be considered to properly distribute media over vast networks with quality and efficiency.

SMART BUILDING AUTOMATION
Smart Buildings, or building automation is the automatic centralized control of a building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting and other systems through a building management system or building automation system (BAS). The objectives of building automation are improved occupant comfort, efficient operation of building systems, reduction in energy consumption and operating costs, and improved life cycle of utilities. The future of smart building management is here today.
SOUND MASKING & ACOUSTICS
Sound masking is an ambient sound distribution system, it plays a sound similar to that of airflow, that’s specifically engineered to the frequency of human speech. With this, you can target conversational distractions and make them less distracting. Adding sound to a space actually makes the space seem quieter. It sounds counter-intuitive but it’s true. This is because the added sound reduces the intelligibility of human speech. When you can’t understand what someone is saying, their words are less distracting — in fact, you probably don’t even notice them.

TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT PLANS
The impact of technology failure has on effective communication and collaboration in the meeting space is expensive. Postponed or relocated meetings, inability to view the prepared content, external attendees unable to see or hear are all common problems plaguing businesses day in day out. Most of us wouldn’t buy a car and not service it, or set up ICT infrastructure without maintenance arrangements. Because AV / Security is too often sourced through the construction process, or because a default support arrangement is ineffective, AV / Security support is often overlooked until it is too late. Remote Design Group is committed to changing the technology support paradigm with a combination of Prevention and Cure services to decrease down time, and enable real time status monitoring.
A remote temperature monitor is a thermometer that has been upgraded for the internet age. It's a digital thermometer that tracks ambient changes in temperature.
