There is a growing need for video verification

What your alarm customers are looking for!

At OzVision, we are believers that security alarm systems can better protect homes and businesses. We also believe that working as partners in conjunction with alarm dealers and central stations, we can together help to make our communities safer.

The opportunity for video verification as a service is growing every year. Already there are many police ordinances in cities across the U.S.A. that are now requiring some type of alarm verification to help them respond more effectively. False alarm fees are also increasing as a way to pay for addition costs as a consequence of dispatching police for false alarms.

Cost effective continuous recording for true video verification

The best part is you can use existing customer owned equipment!

The good news for the alarm dealer and surveillance provider is that the OzVision system works with existing alarm systems ang video equipment. The affordable OzVision interface module called the Gateway can be used with existing video equipment or as a stand-alone unit. Either way, with or without DVR/NVR, the Gateway can integrate with the burglar alarm system.

The OzVision cloud-based video surveillance system is the ideal solution for small to medium size businesses that cannot afford to invest in the expensive costs to upgrade to a large network infrastructure. There are many advantages for cloud video services provided by OzVision. All video is continuously recorded and securely stored in the cloud. Video verification parameters can be managed from the new mobile app.

Keeping You Informed

Just a quick note to inform you about procedural changes mandated by the AESBL coming this summer.

On March 13th Gov. Bentley signed into law Act 2014-160. This bill mandates all monitoring stations utilize alarm verification, with some exceptions, prior to dispatching emergency personnel. The law states:


The board shall require an alarm monitoring company to utilize a system providing for alarm verification of all alarm signals, except alarm verification shall not be required in the case of a fire alarm or a panic or robbery-in-progress alarm or in cases where a crime in progress has been verified to be true by video or audio means, when no alarm signal has been received from the alarm site within the preceding 12 months, or when the contract between the alarm user and the monitoring company specifies the use of a different calling protocol.

 As it pertains to this bill “Alarm Verification” has been defined as:


ALARM VERIFICATION. A reasonable attempt by an alarm monitoring company to contact the alarm site or alarm user by telephone or other electronic means to determine whether an alarm signal is valid prior to requesting law enforcement to be dispatched to the location and, if the initial attempted contact is not made, a second reasonable attempt to make a contact utilizing a different telephone number or electronic address or number.

These changes will result in changes to the AESBL Administrative Code and will be discussed at the upcoming May, 2014 meeting in Montgomery.

Thank you all for your continued business it truly is appreciated!
