avigilon-featuredSafety and security relies on a complex array of critical technologies that keep us safe. When these technologies are connected to communicate and learn from each other together in one integrated ecosystem, safety and performance improve across your enterprise. Information flows where it’s needed — from cameras, to smart radios, to operation centers — and critical information is made clear so that you can proactively respond when needed to possibly prevent incidents from happening. Decisions improve, and fairness and accuracy grow.

At the edge of security is video security, which enhances visibility across your facilities with specialized cameras that enable you to gain a clear view of every location, and AI technology has brought a new level of automation to the analysis of that video. The role of a security operator has shifted away from actively monitoring live video streams to verifying alerts that are detected by a smart video management system, such as Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software. By focusing your attention on the information that matters most, AI-powered video analytics help cut through the noise, providing valuable insights so that you can make informed decisions to take action.

As important as it is to efficiently detect and analyze potentially critical security events, it is equally as important for that information to be instantly and reliably communicated across your entire team. Two-way radio communications ensure key personnel to stay informed of critical decisions at all times, even across multiple teams and networks. 

To enhance the speed at which this information is transmitted, Radio Alert takes alerts from ACC™ video management software and integrates it with two-way radios so that all team members can be informed immediately of critical information simultaneously. By extending the reach of video security intelligence across devices, Radio Alert enables you to quickly recognize and investigate potential threats without needing to continuously monitor activity on a computer screen.

By supporting efficiency, communication and productivity, unified technologies enable a new kind of safety, empowering you and your team to collaborate in more powerful ways. That’s why we’ve developed the first platform to offer a single interface to manage voice, video, data, and analytics — and Radio Alert is just one example of how this unification can help you keep your people and property safer.
