NMC Wins Inaugural TMA/SSI Monitoring Technology Marvel Award
The Marvel Award, co-sponsored by The Monitoring Association and Security Sales & Integration, recognizes monitoring centers for creating and/or using cutting-edge technology and to raise awareness of these new technologies.
NASHVILLE — National Monitoring Center (NMC) is the recipient of the first annual TMA/SSI Monitoring Technology Marvel Award.
The Marvel Award is co-sponsored by Security Sales & Integration and The Monitoring Association (formerly CSAA) and coordinated by the TMA Technology Committee. The objective of the Marvel is to provide recognition for monitoring centers creating and/or using cutting-edge technology, and to raise awareness of these new technologies.
NMC representatives accepted the award during TMA’s general membership meeting, held June 19 as part of the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) in Nashville. NMC submitted an application that outlined how the company has used video technology to tie video verification to an alarm, which in turn triggers a security camera to generate a clip in an intrusion/reaction model that records criminal activity.
The wholesale monitoring provider, based in Lake Forest, Calif., recently merged with Netwatch to be the first and only entity to offer proactive video monitoring tied to a vast analytics program that filters non-suspicious activity and IDs threatening ones.
“This kind of service is impressive and raises the bar for new video monitoring capabilities,” says Steve Butkovich, co-chair of the TMA Technology Committee. “This is where the industry is going next in our goal to protect life and property, and NMC is leading the way.”
NMC’s winning entry — chosen for the “best adoption of new technology to advance your business” —will be featured in SSI’s August publication, themed The Monitoring Issue. Marvel Award runners-up Ackerman Security and COPS Monitoring will also receive coverage in the August issue.
“Technology is consistently mentioned as one of the most important challenges our industry faces. We are pleased to team up with SSI to spotlight these innovators in our industry,” Butkovich says.
