Press Releases

AlarmSoft proudly announces the launch of our new Video Management Services. In addition to providing high-quality, user friendly head-end solutions to dealers for enterprise scale projects we are also able to provide elegant solutions for smaller, less complicated projects. Over the last few months we have worked diligently to establish and activate our new Video IP server farm. We are now able to offer off-site video recording/hosting services, eliminating the need for costly DVR and NVR systems. Our solutions are scalable so that technologies can be adjusted up or down as customer needs change.

In addition to partnering up with Honeywell’s Total Connect services, we have also established our own OEM Video Hosting solution that is compatible with over 1000 camera models across 60 manufacturers. Ease of use, reasonable pricing and readily available compatibility makes our new IP solutions cost effective for nearly any application conceivable. With “hot spot” technology, cameras can be pre-programmed to detect motion during pre-scheduled times and then deliver real-time video clips directly to your e-mail or smartphone for immediate access! Other advantages include video recording retention at an off-site location, remote management and support of selected equipment and the solid reputation of an established industry leader in the central station automation field. IP Video management is no longer only available to large, well funded central stations! Our solutions can be used in both manned and un-manned central stations.

AlarmSoft is now offering dealer programs to help get your business on-line and begin increasing your recurring revenue immediately!

With our Video Management Service (VMS) you can now view your property live over any active internet connection and/or smartphone. VMS keeps you connected to your home, business, boat, beach house, storage facilities, etc… You can setup multiple trigger zones for each camera that will notify you when an established zone has been entered. Time schedules can be created to determine when trigger zones are active. 

VMS is available nationwide. If you move, simply take your cameras with you. Connect your system to the internet and your VMS is again functional.

VMS is capable to manage up to (6) cameras for the same monthly price! You can start with 1 or 2 cameras and add future cameras at your convenience.

VMS is designed for do-it-yourself. After you place your order with AlarmSoft, your onsite access will be established and the cameras you purchase will be preconfigured and shipped to you. Once received, use the step-by-step directions to place your wireless cameras on your property. Plug in the supplied transformers. Once the cameras recognize your internet connection, you should be able to start using your cameras immediately.

An active Broadband Internet connection, available wired port on router/switch (WPS equipped router preferred).  Cameras come with a plug-in power transformer. QuickTime® and Flash® may be needed for your PC.

Security System News | "Central Station Software Company Moves, Readies Expanded Offerings", By Daniel Gelinas

The server farm, according to Brackett is still in the planning stages, but the
company is ready to leverage its new space, as well as its technology and
know-how to add video services to its core central station software operation.

“When we get this done, it will allow any dealer who deals in IP cameras to go
to their end users and offer the ability to get rid of or avoid a DVR,” Brackett
said. “We’ve got the programmers, we’ve got the technology and the means,
and now we’ve got the space. So we’re gauging the interest among our
dealers. Once this thing is in place, you’ll be able to use your smartphones,
your PDAs, your Android, your Windows mobile device, your iPad … All we’ll
need is the MAC address and the IPs for the cameras … We’ll host.”

AlarmSoft recently debuted such popular central station software tools as
Signal Me and an operator awareness application to help central stations
function more efficiently. Signal Me works with AlarmSoft's Central Works 2000
alarm automation software and its Wizard module to facilitate the automatic
output of nearly any account information in the form of an email or text
message to any web-enabled device, such as a laptop, mobile phone,
blackberry or PDA. The operator alertness app helps central station managers
ensure that signals that need and deserve attention don’t go unnoticed.
