Who’s keeping an eye on your pot?

TruMed-exteriorIf you had a marijuana farm, you might be a bit paranoid about people messing with your product — especially when you’re in the business of cultivating the highest quality medical marijuana available.

That’s why TruMed, the premier Phoenix dispensary, hired Centralized Vision to provide live-eye surveillance camera monitoring for their cultivation facility. We’re also working closely with their intrusion alarm monitoring company, so that in the event of an alarm we can use our video surveillance to validate its legitimacy. With this integrated approach, we can proactively identify and respond to any threats to the facility or product.

Centralized Vision has become the go-to surveillance camera monitoring company for facilities like these due to our customized approach and ability to adopt existing systems.

 

CV call leads to arrest of copper thief suspect at a retail shopping center

It’s well known that unoccupied homes are often targeted by copper thieves, but did you know that vacant retail locations can be just as susceptible to building materials theft?

That’s why a Centralized Vision technician contacted police immediately when he observed a trespasser climbing the roof of an unoccupied building in a retail shopping center. The suspect appeared to be stripping material off of the roof and cutting power wires. Three police units arrived onsite quickly and proceeded to detain and question the suspect, who was being uncooperative. The suspect was finally arrested and taken away in police custody. Check out the video here.

And that’s another copper thief off the streets!

Affordable nation-wide 24/7/365 security monitoring

centralizedvision-10Who do you know – anywhere in the country – who needs around-the-clock security monitoring but is on a tight budget?

Traditional security systems require security personnel to be onsite around the clock, including holidays and weekends. (All that overtime pay adds up). And they must be constantly vigilant, which can be difficult when most of the time things are pretty boring. (The dozing security guard is a movie cliché at this point.)

Centralized Vision’s ability to quickly and easily offer our security monitoring services from our N.O.C. (National Operations Center) in Phoenix means that companies can now receive the benefits of a quality security service at one quarter of the price – from anywhere in the nation.

Thanks to this versatility and scalability, we’ve recently expanded our services into the state of Oregon. We’re now seeking to expand our partnerships well beyond the borders of Arizona, so that companies can save money and rest easy knowing that we’re keeping our eye on what matters most – the people and resources that are the lifeblood of their business.

We appreciate referrals – forward this to a colleague who has important assets to protect and a sharp eye on the bottom line – or contact us directly to refer someone or get your questions answered.

 

Patience and problem solving key to new partnership

Camera3Although Centralized Vision uses the latest technology to monitor remote sites 24/7/365, sometimes we have to integrate with older camera systems already in place at a new client’s site, and that can present its own set of challenges to overcome.

That’s what we encountered when we started off a new partnership with Truck Masters and Lifted Trucks in Phoenix. Their specialty automotive dealerships were in need of after-hours live monitoring at an affordable price. We were proud to partner with another great locally based corporation that is committed to excellence and to treating their customers like family. Standing in the way of this fledgling relationship were their legacy camera systems.

The Lifted Trucks system is in the ceiling, which no one knew about beforehand. Once we found the system, of course it was offline and needed to be reconfigured. But no one had the username and password, so we had to access the system without them, which was tricky, but accomplished. We then had to reconfigure the settings in order for it to communicate with the network so that we could connect to it from our central station.

The Truck Masters system is an ADT system. ADT is historically uncooperative to work with and connect to. We had to explore the user settings and reconfigure them in order for this system to allow a connection to occur from our central station.

Despite these challenges, our CV techs were successful all the way around, proving once again their ability to overcome adversity.

We encounter this scenario – and other technical challenges – on an ongoing basis.  A little old fashioned patience is key to moving through such obstacles where others might get frustrated and walk away.

Centralized Vision is proud to now be monitoring the Truck Masters and Lifted Trucks locations to ensure their lots are secure after hours. With the ever-increasing vagrant population and higher-than-normal crime rate in this area of Phoenix, we are a welcomed addition to their crime fighting efforts.
