The Videofied Concept
Law enforcement explains priority response.
Watch the video at right to hear leaders in law enforcement explain the decisive advantage that a verified/Videofied alarm has for police officers and public safety.
The videos tell the story.
Plain and simple, a video-verified alarm is better. Watch the videos below to see how the response/dispatch process for a Videofied alarm differs from the process for traditional/non-verified alarms.
If you have a Traditional Alarm
Response Time : 20 Minutes
If you have a Videofied Alarm System
Response Time : 5 Minutes
If you live in a Non-Response Area
Response Time : Never
Videofied MotionViewers install anywhere: commercial or residential sites, inside or outdoors, as an upgrade to existing systems or a brand new standalone security system. The wireless installation creates an out-of-the-box solution, with the option for hardwiring if desired. The new slimline product design looks good wherever installed, and the four-year battery life looks even better on budgets.
On Demand Interactivity
Everything is interactive today, and video security is no different. Videofied smartphone Apps gives customers the ability to request remote video and snapshots on demand, while the system preserves privacy with only videos of alarms being automatically sent to the Central Station for review and dispatch. For maximum security, app functionality is completely separate from alarm procedures, and it also includes a gallery archive, arm/disarm ability, and open/close reporting.
Instantaneous Video Capture
When the MotionViewer sensor is tripped, a 10 second video clip of the event is captured and sent through cell or IP network to a central monitoring station (ARC). The wireless, passive infrared sensor (PIR) works with a digital video camera to record color video during the daytime, monochrome at night, all in full VGA resolution. Verification of the event is key – and so is swift, rapid video transfer to the Central Station for review and dispatch. The video clip can also be configured for a lower-resolution, smaller file.
The central station receives the alarm and video together in the same message, allowing monitoring staff to instantly confirm the presence of an intruder. Non-events are also identified, preventing charges for false alarms.
Notification and Dispatch
Confirmation of a crime-in-progress elevates the priority of the alarm and expedites police response. When the 911 center (PSAP) is notified of a crime-in-progress, police give priority response to the alarm and make more arrests.
Priority Response means more arrests. Video-verified alarms have proven arrest rates thousands of times better than traditional alarms. Traditional alarms have arrest rates at 0.08% according to police studies. The sooner responders arrive on scene, the sooner they make arrests. As a result, there’s less time for property damage to occur and a greater chance of recovering stolen property. Insurance companies reduce claims and losses.
What is Videofied ?
Videofied is not a CCTV surveillance system that simply records videos that are accessed by the owner. Rather, Videofied is a complete video alarm system that sends a short video clip with the alarm notification to the central station for immediate review. Videofied links the video with the central station – self-surveillance does not. A monitored video alarm delivers quicker police dispatch.
Where can you use it?
Videofied is proven for protecting remote sites, outdoor locations and assets in harsh environments. We protect cell towers in the heat of the Arizona desert and oil wells during the cold winters of Alberta. Videofied is equally suited for interior residential and commercial applications. Videofied can be used anywhere security is needed: as an upgrade to existing security or standalone.
