ST. LOUIS â€“ Arteco Vision Systems is proud to announce its acceptance as an authorized vendor with the Professional Security Alliance (PSA) Network, the worldâ€™s largest electronic security cooperative.Â Â
Although for 20 years Arteco products have raised the bar in software-driven automation, the Arteco Intelligent Video Solution (IVS) was only introduced to the U.S. market in 2005.Â Joining the PSA enables Arteco to make its technology accessible to the recognized leaders in the U.S. security provider market.
"We are very excited by this opportunity to bringÂ the ArtecoÂ Intelligent Video Solution to PSA's network of dedicated professionals in the Security Industry," stated Giorgio Bucci, President of Arteco Vision Systems.Â "PSA Integrators represent the best in the industry and we look forward to supporting all of them toward success in the growing Intelligent Video market."
"Arteco has put together a robust package at a good price," said Jennifer Martin Anderson, PSAâ€™s Director of Vendor Management & Education.Â â€œIt would be a good solution for small-business owners who need to simultaneously monitor multiple locations, but can't afford staff to sit on site or at a bank of video screens, for example.â€
Established in 1974, the PSA has members responsible for over $1.4 billion in annual security, fire, and life safety installations.Â These leading security systems integrators specialize in the design, installation, integration, and maintenance of access control, video surveillance, intrusion detection, fire, and life safety systems.Â The PSA Security Network facilitates the growth of security systems integrators by providing access to competitive pricing and provides the training, financing, and administrative support necessary to develop business efficiencies for a competitive advantage.
Intelligent Video is being heralded by industry trade publications and security professionals as the next step in the evolution of surveillance.Â The Arteco Intelligent Video Solution (IVS) is a combination of hardware and software components working together to deliver a pro-active tool that alerts to events in real-time, while recording every second.Â The Arteco-IVS can determine the size, speed, direction and number of objects as well as detect for abandoned/removed objects or violated areas.Â The intelligent analysis of the IVS detects a specific security event occurring within one of its sensors (camera views) which immediately triggers a visible (flashing red) and audible (customized wav. file) signal.Â The alert can be received on a computer screen or mobile device (PDA) as an email or SMS message.
Located in St. Louis, Mo, Arteco Vision Systems, Inc., is a member of the Arteco Global Family, headquartered in Faenza, Italy, and holds exclusive rights to market proprietary intelligent video solution (IVS) systems in the U.S. for both commercial and residential settings.Â Arteco provides all hard and soft components to maximize theÂ optimum performance of a balanced, customized system.Â Its advanced system analysis enables users to move video surveillance from a reactive forensics tool to a pro-active, pre-emptive security measure that can stop violations as they happen.Â The Arteco IVS is currently being used to increase security at subway stations, museums, hospitals, highways, manufacturing facilities, water treatment plants and city centers, as well as protecting national landmarks.Â For more information about Arteco visit www.artecous.com.
