I-View Now has integrated intrusion control panels, IP cameras and digital recording solutions from Bosch Security Systems with its platform for video alarm verification. A Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, I-View Now’s video verification interface brings security system signals, video sources, and internet-connected devices into its cloud platform to give central station operators, authorized emergency responders, and end users better information to prioritize their resources. It allows monitoring personnel to look in and assess the cause of an event at a site using video clips that include pre-alarm footage.
With the integration, security dealers and integrators can now program Bosch B and G Series Intrusion Control Panels to report alarms to the I-View Now cloud service as well as to the central monitoring station receiver. This allows Bosch dealers to offer these video alarm verification services to end users, creating new recurring monthly revenue opportunities.
Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions and IP cameras are also supported by the I-View Now platform. With this integration, central station operators benefit from the highest quality of IP video images as they work to determine the source of an alarm at a monitored facility. Bosch IP cameras are designed to deliver detailed images even in difficult lighting conditions—providing central station operators more information surrounding events for improved situational awareness.
“With our Integration Partner Program, we strive to give our customers greater choice in the security platforms they use with Bosch IP cameras, recording solutions, control panels, and more,” said Brad Eck, Integration Manager – North America, Bosch Security Systems. “This integration enables Bosch dealers and integrators to grow their businesses with video alarm verification services offered through I-View Now monitoring center partners. As a result, end users will benefit from a solution that combines high quality and reliable security systems from Bosch with video alarm verification services that provide local authorities with important information when responding to an alarm.”
“We’re thrilled to further our relationship with the premier brand Bosch and provide their dealers the opportunity to enhance their solutions with central station video services which helps create more valuable accounts for their businesses,” said Larry Folsom, President of I-View Now.
