Mace Csss Now Offers Integration To Videofied™ Remote Video Security System
Horsham, PA, November 3, 2009 — Mace Security International, Inc. (“Mace” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq Global: MACE) today announced that its subsidiary, Mace CSSS, Inc. through its stages™ central station automation system, has successfully integrated to the Videofied™ video verification security monitoring system. This unique state of the art platform allows the Mace CSSS central station monitoring center to receive video verification of alarm events activated through the Videofied security system. The Videofied™ system was developed by RSI VIDEO TECHNOLOGIES® a global manufacturer and solutions provider. Mace CSSS has added RSI’s server to its central station and integrated the signal and video processing with the stages™ automation processing system.
The Videofied™ system incorporates a wireless motion viewer, with a built in digital camera and illuminator for night vision. Upon detecting motion, the viewer sends a 10 second video clip to the Mace CSSS monitoring center. Mace receives the video verification and utilizes two way voice to investigate the alarm incident and respond immediately. Video verification provides greater alarm accuracy and reduced false alarms, providing faster and more efficient law enforcement response. Video verification is increasingly in demand in remote sites such as construction, utility substations, and communication towers.
Peter P. Giacalone, President of Mace Security Services, stated: “As a recognized leader in remote video monitoring, it’s essential that the Mace CSSS line of services includes platforms like Videofied™ to enhance our dealer’s offerings while increasing their revenue stream. This unique platform will afford our dealers the opportunity to raise their competitive position by offering services to remote applications where electricity and communications are not available.”
Keith Jentoft, President of RSI Video Technologies added: “We are pleased to have Mace as a partner. Mace understands that police give higher priority response when the monitoring center confirms an intruder is present. Central stations using Videofied™ for higher priority police response get apprehensions and deliver greater value to their customers.
Dennis Raefield, CEO of Mace further stated, “This new integration provides a unique security application for an exploding market for remote video verification. We are very pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers.”
