Joey Rao-Russell, our President and CEO, was a guest on the Security Speaking podcast. Joey, along with several other members of the Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response (PPVAR) spoke about the top challenges facing the video verified alarm movement, top opportunities, emerging and disruptive technologies transforming the alarm response, and much more.
Podcast host Rodney Bosch and PPVAR guests focused on how audio and video security technology can help reduce false dispatches and increase apprehensions in the event of break-ins at businesses. This is the technology that Sonitrol specializes in.
Verified Audio and Visual Technology
Sonitrol combines state-of-the-art audio and visual technology with human intelligence to verify a threat before the police are called. We have eyes and ears on your building so that the police know this isn’t just another false alarm and know exactly what is happening before arriving. Not only does this help protect you and your business, but it can also help apprehend the criminals who broke in.
Reducing False Dispatches
This technology, as we’ve already mentioned, helps reduce false alarms. But what does that really mean? It means enhancing the reliability of security systems. When the police get a call from Sonitrol, they can expect it to be a real threat. This increases call out time and the apprehension of criminals.
We’re setting the trends here. With the data we collect, we’re hoping to make this an even more reliable way of detecting crime and other threats, such as fires. This allows us to serve our customers better and enhance their safety.
Real-time data means more safety for the community as well as the officers responding to threats. Verification can give police information such as where criminals are, how many there are, whether or not they are armed, and more. This information allows us to be an invaluable resource for law enforcement. Knowing how to respond to a situation is much better than going in blind.
There is always a chance for danger to officers and citizens with a dispatch. That’s why collaboration is so important and why the PPVAR organization exists. It takes everyone doing their part to keep our communities safe.
Protecting our customers and businesses is what Sonitrol does best. We are thankful for Joey’s hard work and dedication within our own company and for the work of the other PPVAR professionals and the people at Security Sales and Integration. Together, we can help this industry thrive and continue to decrease false alarms with audio-visual technology.
