STANLEY Security and I-View Now Announce Partnership for Live, Actionable
Verified Alarm Response
IN - (November 23, 2015) - STANLEY Security, a leading global manufacturer
and integrator of comprehensive security solutions for a wide range of
industries, announces its partnership with I-View Now, a cloud-based video
verification service that communicates event- based clips and live video from
alarm events using its award-winning central station video interface. The
partnership strengthens STANLEY Security's position as a superb video alarm
verification monitoring services provider and now enables its customers to
participate in the real-time decision-making process of determining the
likelihood of a crime in progress associated with their alarm activity.
I-View Now was created to simplify verification of video alarms during the
dispatch process, help reduce false alarms, and to increase apprehensions
through the cloud-based portal, where live, situational events can be viewed.
When a customer's alarm is triggered, the ProtectionNet Customer Service Center
operator can watch a recorded clip of the circumstances that caused the alarm,
as well as view the facility or property in real-time. This removes the guessing
game about what caused the system to go into alarm, allowing for quick, direct
and dependable police dispatch. Simultaneously, customers can look at the same
actionable video - on their mobile devices or computers - that the central
station operator is viewing to help determine the authenticity of the incident
and communicate with the central station.
Industry experts anticipate that this collaboration between the operator and the
customer - seeing the tangible, detectible event at the same time - will have
long-reaching impact with first responders and law enforcement where delayed
response and false alarms are an ongoing issue. Providing dependable, accurate
information, by both viewing parties, as the event is playing out, could
significantly decrease false alarm incidents and result in improved outcomes
with police departments around the country.
We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term partnership with I-View Now,
one that has generated enormous interest in our ability to offer our customers
an expanded portfolio of video verification options with mobile capabilities,"
states Rich Mellott, Director of Product Management, STANLEY Security. "In the
past, we've had to manage disparate proprietary solutions, and, while it served
our needs at the time, we now have the flexibility to provide a greater value of
situational awareness in a highly reliable, rapid and secure way to STANLEY's
legacy customer base and new customers alike."
"We all agree the traditional burglar alarm is a deterrent to crime, yet we also
know video verification is a significant enhancement to traditional security
solutions," said Larry Folsom, President and CEO of I-View Now. "End users want
to consume actionable video whenever they want to. With our partnership, STANLEY
customers will not only be able to view live video of their facilities, but they
can also touch a button to call the central monitoring station at that moment,
if they choose to."
