Centralized Vision Partners with Climatec to Provide Video Managed Services at UltraStar Multi-Tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle

By Tom Vigilante, Jr.

The new UltraStar Multi-Tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle in Maricopa, Arizona provides many options for families wanting to experience a variety of entertainment options under one roof. The 165,000-square-foot facility features three dining options, bowling, laser tag, arcade games, an amphitheater and a 12-theater movie complex.

To ensure a family-safe environment throughout the facility, Centralized Vision partnered with Climatec to secure a contract with UltraStar Multi-Tainment Center and provide video managed services by monitoring more than 90 security cameras on the property. Centralized Vision currently does video monitor tours of the facility at various times throughout the day from its off-site location and can provide real-time notifications of any disturbances on the property.

The UltraStar Multi-Tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle is our first collaborative partnership with Climatec, which now allows us to provide remote managed services with a well-respected company on a national stage. Since 1975, Climatec has been a leading provider of advanced building technologies for a wide variety of industries and buildings. Their broad set of offerings allows them to be a single source integrator of critical building systems. They provide safer, more comfortable and more efficient building environments.

Climatec was interested in partnering with Centralized Vision due to increased demand from their current and potential clients requesting video managed services. Some potential customers were reluctant to invest in new technology products from Climatec without having the internal personnel to utilize them to their fullest extent. Centralized Vision eliminates this concern by providing dedicated personnel, also known as Operating Technicians, for Climatec to offer their current and new clients, thus creating a complete service offering to include a variety of remote managed service options.

Our partnership with Climatec will allow us to potentially receive exponential growth throughout the country, exposure to cutting-edge technology and possible access into theme parks, hospitals, schools and sporting venues.

We are fortunate to be aligned with a well-respected company like Climatec. However, the big winners are the numerous people that will experience a safe and secure environment when visiting any of the properties we are collaboratively providing video managed services at.

Video Can Help Tempe Police Nab Beating Suspect


By Tami Vigilante

A male suspect who thought he got away with a crime after beating a defenseless 20-year-old male Arizona State University student in the elevator of a popular residential building in downtown Tempe now must try to evade local law enforcement agencies.

Because West 6th Tempe has video surveillance cameras monitor various areas of their high-rise residential building located just west of Mill Ave. near ASU, Tempe Police now have video footage that clearly identifies a 6-foot white male with short brown hair in his early 20s relentlessly attacking the male victim in an elevator on the property around 2 a.m. on Oct. 6. The victim was knocked unconscious and had an earring ripped out of his ear by the suspect. Tempe Police are seeking the suspect on aggravated assault charges because there is such severe damage to the victim’s face after sustaining numerous facial fractures. Tempe Police have released video footage of the crime to local media agencies to assist them in asking people to help them identify the suspect through their Silent Witness program.

If there had not been any video footage, the Tempe Police Department would have had a hard time trying to solve this crime because it happened early in the morning when nobody else seemed to be around the building to offer information as a witness. That is why Centralized Vision has been so beneficial to our customers by providing real-time video verification services to our clients. We have various properties who use our services to monitor their cameras within the elevators in their parking structures. Not only can we act as a deterrent by catching thieves in the middle of a crime, but we can also capture footage of a serious crime and work with law enforcement authorities to track down the suspects.

Hopefully, you will agree with me that we can make our community safer as more businesses and property management companies use video monitoring to prevent crimes like this from happening in the future.
