Remote Video Monitoring Providers Directory

By John Honovich, Published May 21, 2017, 08:00pm EDT

Remote video monitoring can help integrators generate RMR plus end users lower their security costs and/or improve response to critical events.

The four main types of video monitoring services commonly offered are:

  • Video verification
  • Video guard patrol
  • Video escort
  • Remote video

Inside, we explain each one and then share a list of over 75 providers of these services.

I believe iVerify also does video guard tours and video escorts, based on someone who used to work there, even though it's not listed on their website.

Regarding this:

Video verification is video that is associated with an alarm detecting an event.

Is there an implied duration for the resultant video? Any best practices you can share?

I think that's because as I understand it, I-View Now is a platform used by other monitoring services, not necessarily a monitoring service itself like CMS or COPS, for example.

true. Just surprised because they require the dealer or integrator to be a partner as well.

Well, I thought about adding them, but I figured that since they announced a partnership with C.O.P.S., they should be considered more of a platform. And I do have C.O.P.S. on the list.

What is the saying? "The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more."

Another type of service we're asked about from time to time is what is called by some as Virtual Doorman Service. Similar to Video Escort, this would be a service that has the ability to remote open doors so that visitors can be let in. I know one company that says they will do this, though we haven't used them yet.

EyeforceTheir condition being you make remotely accessible a compatible Aiphone device.

Maybe another item to add here, or an article of it's own...?

Thanks, UI4. I added Elite and Eye Witness. CMS was already on the list. As for the others, do they provide wholesale monitoring to independent, third party dealers? If they do, I'll add them.

Did anyone notice how many phones were on the desk of the image on this post?  I think the beret wearing operators are actually monitoring more phones than cameras.

Would love to see an updated version of this and maybe some evaluations of the various services some of these companies offer to the integrator and end-user.

Had been approached by one company and was looking in to whether this may be a good fit for us and to expand our offerings.
