Local Business Gets National Business Partnership
Published on Thu, Oct 4, 2012 (2:15 p.m.)Hi. I work for a company called I-View Now. We are a cloud based video alarm verification service. Right now less than 3% of cameras go to an operator in the event of an alarm. We bring true verification to the central station with a pre-alarm clip what caused a burglar alarm go to off and live view of the cameras on the facility to know what is actively occuring in the building. (We can present you with a demo of our service if you would like). I-View Now (a local company in Las Vegas) is very proud to announce their partnership with a national company, Protection 1. Protection 1 is ranked 3rd in the U.S. and this is a huge account for us! We would like to know if this could get published somewhere in your newspaper or online?
Here is the Press Release that they created regarding the launch of our services in their company.
Protection 1 Partners with I-View Now to Enable Cloud-Based
Video Verification Services and Storage
Romeoville, Ill. – September 25, 2012 – Protection 1, the second-largest business and home security company in the U.S., has partnered with I-View Now to enable cloud-based video services. The integration of the I-View Now technology enables receipt of alarm video – both pre- and post-alarm - in Protection 1’s security automation system by alarm center agents, as well as simultaneous delivery to customer mobile devices and event storage on the customer’s eSuite web-based account.
“Verified response is a rapidly increasing requirement due to budget and manpower constraints of the authorities we depend on to respond to alarms,” said Don Young, Chief Information Officer at Protection 1. “The solution from I-View Now gives us a mechanism to efficiently receive and process the alarms, while distributing and storing the associated video through the cloud for subscription by our customers. The ability to do all of these things with one platform is what attracted us to the I-View Now offering.”
I-View Now President, Larry Folsom said, “The work we have accomplished through our partnership with Protection 1 helps to deliver events in real time to Protection 1’s central station and to their tech savvy end users. We are pleased to help Protection 1 further their reputation of customer service excellence with state-of-the-art video services.”
Protection 1 previewed their new I-View Now enabled video capabilities at ASIS in Philadelphia. “We were able to show customers and prospects how they could immediately retrieve video associated with alarm activity at their sites in their eSuite portal,” said Protection1’s Young. “Our customers loved the ease of retrieval and the power of actual site video to tell the story of an event.”
Protection 1 believes that the I-View Now solution helps to position them to adapt as more and more jurisdictions move to verified response policies. Protection 1 is a member of the Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response (PPVAR), an organization whose goal is to increase criminal apprehensions through the use of video verified alarms.

About I-View Now
I-View Now is a cloud based video verification service that turns burglar alarms into active video systems. This patent pending technology relates alarm events with video clips from off the shelf DVRs, NVRs or IP cameras. When an alarm is triggered, I-View Now sends a video clip link to live view the cameras and pre-alarm event clip to the central station’s software. Simultaneously, a text message or email is sent to the end user where they can live view their facility, view a clip of what caused the alarm, and select a button to call the central station if they choose too. I-View Now removes the guessing games of what caused the system to go into alarm, allowing for quick and direct police dispatch.
