Pre-dispatch Alarm Verification for Banks and Retailers Reduces False Alarms and Lowers Operational Costs
3VR Security, Inc., the pioneer of searchable surveillance, today announced a new integration between the company's award-winning intelligent video management platform and industry-leading intrusion and access control solutions from Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) of Springfield, Missouri.
When banks and retailers experience user-generated nuisance alarm events emergency services are still required to respond. In some cases, this can result in fines and non-response policies that endanger the business in the event of an actual alarm event.
"Our customers were being inundated with false alarms from user errors with their intrusion systems," said Stephen Russell, CEO of 3VR. "With DMP, we've solved this problem, saving customers money and improving operational efficiency."
This powerful integrated solution allows valuable alarm and access control data to flow through 3VR's intelligent video management system. The 3VR system is then able to react to the alarm signal in a wide variety of ways, including:
- Increasing the frame rate of video capture in the alert region;
- Alerting the appropriate personnel via video monitor panel and/or email
- Creating video events associated with the time, place and faces surrounding the alarm event for easy export to law enforcement; and
- Conducting cross-enterprise searches associated with any ID card, individual, alarm point, or alarm area
DMP is a recognized leader in network solutions for fast, cost-effective, centralized security monitoring in applications of all sizes. DMP helped launch the digital communications revolution in the security industry, and continues to set the standard for networked intrusion, fire and access control systems.
"By integrating 3VR's sophisticated video technology with alarm and access control information, we can immediately raise our customers' expectations around the value a security system can deliver to their business," said Bill Jackson, President, DMP. "We are now able to provide simple, actionable data, and the new forensic powers and intelligence that allow our personnel to respond most effectively to security information and video."
The integration, which is available now to customers of 3VR and DMP, was built on the 3VR Developer Network, an open integration platform announced in 2007 that gives leading security technology companies access to 3VR's search engine and video management platform.
"We consistently strive to provide our customers and partners with a powerful platform on which to build intelligent, integrated security solutions," said Tom Falhaber, platform development director for 3VR. "Businesses are only able to make the most intelligent decisions when they are presented with all the necessary information, and we are proud that our security technology, with its sophisticated search and analytics capabilities, is now putting this power at our customers' fingertips."
