United Central Control, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, announced a strategic partnership with CheckVideo, provider of cloud-based intelligent video surveillance and alarm verification solutions, to offer a robust menu of monitored video services to UCC customer accounts through more than 500 dealers nationwide. UCC and CheckVideo have already begun to provide accredited video surveillance services sales and technical training to the UCC dealer network.
“The opportunity in video is enormous. Video alarm verification is just the tip of the iceberg. As video grows into an accepted—and highly desired—component of managed security, more customers are asking for monitored video services”, said Mark Matlock, senior vice president, UCC. “Team UCC has embraced CheckVideo as an integral part of our monitoring operations due to its effectiveness and ease of use for UCC, the dealer, and the customer. CheckVideo’s comprehensive training programs and dealer support are also critical to the rapid acceleration of our video services offerings.”
“Customers across markets ranging from construction, automotive, and utilities are benefiting from CheckVideo and realizing a return on their investment in managed video services”, said Chris Brown, vice president, CheckVideo. “Team UCC understands video monitoring technology and how to integrate it with operational protocols to provide outstanding customer service. We are delighted to partner with them to roll out video services to their entire dealer network.”
CheckVideo “watches” video 24/7 for events of interest and sends critical, real-time alerts to the CSAA Five Diamond Certified UCC central station for assessment and response. Because CheckVideo detects the presence of people and vehicles, not just motion, it dramatically reduces nuisance alarms. CheckVideo alerts can be used to dispatch authorities or trigger voice down audio announcements in the event of suspicious activity, helping stop crime in progress. They can also be used for operational concerns such as tracking deliveries and business opening/closing times.
In partnership with CheckVideo, UCC will offer video services including video detection and response, video alarm verification, virtual guard tours, access control and business optimization.
