Videofied XTIP Overview

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Feb 21, 2012

Video alarm verification remains a hot topic in the security industry, with municipalities continuing to levy fines against building owners for false alarms. Videofied has made its name in this space with its video-verified alarm system, the latest incarnation of which, the XTIP, was just announced. This release adds remote control via smarthphone, and Ethernet connectivity, which may eliminate costly GSM data fees for many users. In this update we will look at the XTIP series, how it compares to existing offerings, and what this added Ethernet communications may mean for users.
