Become Your Own Mini Central Station – Without the Heavy Costs, but With all of the Advantages
Have you ever dreamed of owning your own central station but put aside the idea because of the expense?
Hosting your own UL-compliant monitoring services meant purchasing receivers and servers, staffing 24/7, constructing a brick-and-mortar building – and becoming UL Compliant. That has now changed.
Thanks to Central Station Monitoring as a Service (CSMaaS) from The NEW DICE Corporation, security integration companies can now realize their dream utilizing a mini central station.
What is MATRIX INTERACTIVE
MATRIX INTERACTIVE provides a game-changing way of doing business for central stations, command centers, PSIMs, and integrators beyond basic video verification and automation monitoring. The powerful, unified enterprise automation and event management platform enables new services with integrated audio, video, AI, advanced analytics, cybersecurity, telecom, and cloud hosting.
How it Works
Security integrations companies receive a branch, part of MATRIX INTERACTIVE automation software either from a third-party central station with MATRIX or directly from DICE. Because MATRIX is cloud-based, the branch provides everything you need to monitor accounts. All you need is a computer, headphones, a phone, and a person or persons to monitor those accounts. Since The NEW DICE Corporations data centers are UL 827a compliant, your security integration company could also comply with UL requirements.
MATRIX INTERACTIVE’s unified cloud-based video, alarm, and event management monitoring platform and services are accessible from anywhere. Since the services are always available, integrators can use their time more efficiently and decide how they want to monitor their clients – 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, or a hybrid solution. For instance, the integration company can monitor 5 days a week from 9-5, while the central station can take over evenings and weekends.
Central Station Monitoring Technology Trends for 2022 – Technology and innovation continue to advance at record speed, impacting everything from electronic security to space travel. There have been a lot of articles published about 2022 security trends in general, so we decided to concentrate on the Top Central Station Monitoring Technology Trends. Read More
When we think of the installation of traditional video surveillance systems, we imagine a one-time installation of cameras, an NVR, and possibly a video wall. You may have sold the client a maintenance plan but no RMR.
Without RMR, security integrators are missing out on revenue that alarm monitoring companies have been taking advantage of for years.
You can monitor today’s video surveillance systems like an alarm system, which opens new possibilities and opportunities. You can offer new types of interactive video services thanks to AI, video analytics, and new technology. Some of them include Remote Guarding, Remote Doorman, Advance Video Verification, virtual concierge services, shoplifting, PERS, system redundancy, video/alarm event archiving, and PSIM solutions to integrate disparate security systems and others.
In addition, you can offer your end-user clients such as universities, hospitals, retail, HOA’s, and others a branch with the same hybrid concept.
The Bottom Line
As a mini central station using CSMaaS, you now have various tools designed to help you grow your business. Think of CSMaaS as a central hub for managing your client’s security, video, alarm, and event management monitoring needs.
Plus, everyone can take advantage of the latest video analytics, behavioral analytics, and thousands of security devices without needing an API since MATRIX INTERACTIVE is an open platform.
Since your client’s security needs can be monitored by you or a central station remotely, they can optimize their on-site security personnel resources by assigning them other duties rather than monitoring security activity from an on-premises console. Additionally, based on event notification priority, they can monitor video, alarms, and event triggers remotely from any device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
Central Station Monitoring As A Service (CSMaaS) will help you realize your dream, grow your business, and provide you with a valuable new recurring monthly revenue stream. CSMaaS is also a win-win for everyone.
