INDIANAPOLIS--General Emergency Monitoring took an avant-garde approach when upgrading its automation software; the company invited its board of directors, a group of non-industry professionals from the community, to examine product options.
After the discussion, the central selected the SIMS windows-based UL version and it is expected to be running in March.
CLEVELAND--Quick Response, a regional monitoring provider in the Midwest, has begun incorporating access control monitoring, recently obtained Five Diamond Certification for its dispatchers and looks forward to adding video monitoring.
The central, like others, is noticing that more of their customers are systems integrators.
Some companies this year have discussed the benefit of moving from operating their own central stations to partnering with a third party monitoring center, including RFI Communications, Red Hawk Fire & Security and Comtronics. Will more companies switch to using wholesale centrals?
