Mace CSSS announces integration with VideoIQ

Company’s SureView remote video monitoring platform to now use VideoIQ’s intelligent cameras


Horsham, Pennsylvania – December 1, 2009 – Mace Security International today announced that its subsidiary, Mace CSSS,.has successfully integrated the award-winning VideoIQ into its SureView advanced remote video monitoring and management platform.

VideoIQ, the inventor of the world’s first and only intelligent surveillance camera with a built in-DVR provides audio and video analytics, enabling Mace CSSS dealers an affordable solution for remote monitoring. Although video analytics tools have been in the marketplace for several years, they have been costly and targeted at larger surveillance systems. VideoIQ’s lower installation costs and ease of operation make it attractive to all sizes of security installations.

The VideoIQ iCVR is the only intelligent camera and encoder family that requires no calibration—users can simply plug it in and begin using it immediately. The iCVR combines automated event detection, a built-in DVR and integrated video management into a single solution–all driven by next-generation analytics. The built-in analytics adapt to changes in the environment, eliminating maintenance costs that have plagued video analytics systems in the past. The result is a simple and proactive video surveillance solution–with a low total-cost of ownership.

The combination of VideoIQ and the SureView video monitoring and management platform offers a cost-effective security solution that reflects Mace’s continued efforts to make Mace CSSS a leader in the central station monitoring industry.

Peter Giacalone, President of Mace Security Services, stated, “Video IQ is truly a unique technology that works! Utilizing this technology drastically reduces the associated remote monitoring monthly fees as the analytics does most of the work and only the exceptions are sent to central station for processing and action.”

"Mace dealers have a reputation for reliable, complete solutions," said Scott Schnell, President and CEO of VideoIQ. "With VideoIQ and Mace CSSS, Mace dealers can offer customers an actively monitored, event driven video security solution, providing the security of guards at a fraction of the price. This opens up a whole new stream of revenue and value add to Mace dealers."
