Cernium announced that Sentinel Silent Alarm, Hawaii's locally owned security alarm company, will offer customers Cernium's intelligent video alarm verification solution. The solution will allow Sentinel to provide greater protection to its customers while maintaining the company's heritage of excellent service and low false alarm rates.
The verification system transforms the way that central stations monitor and verify alarms by performing real-time analysis of monitored video and presenting critical visual information to security monitoring personnel. The technology not only reduces false alarms but makes operators more efficient, by allowing them to respond more effectively to situations that require their attention. Integrated with central station automation software, the solution is a hosted solution that cost-effectively incorporates advanced video analytics and Web-based video management functionality.
"Sentinel is an acknowledged leader in the security alarm market, with a history of outstanding service, expertise and product innovation," said Philip Robertson, VP of Security and Alarm Division of Cernium. "Our partnership enables Sentinel to greatly enhance their service offering and establish an additional source of recurring monthly revenue."
"Video is the next wave of industry innovation for incremental revenue but also for more cost-efficient operations. We evaluated several video verification solutions and found that the system is the easiest to configure and manage," said Jason Correia, President of Sentinel Silent Alarm. "The solution is designed to work seamlessly with central stations and has allowed us to add the solution without having to invest additional capital in servers or other equipment."
