DirectConnect

The DirectConnect solution is deployed through a custom-configured 4G router that connects through to the SCSI private and secure network. This enables the 4G router to have a fixed IP address at all times.

Two very big advantages of a fixed IP address is that is removes the inconvenience of having to visit the device on-site and reconfigure hardware should the network allocate another IP address and it also makes the solution easy to integrate into SMC’s RVR platform which is dependent on a static IP.

SMC Bureau can easily use the DirectConnect solution combined with our Remote Video Verification platform to connect with existing CCTV equipment at the end customers address, allowing our team to carry out Video Verification of alarm activations as well as offering Virtual Guard Tours and Virtual Escorts.

Supported industries include Transport, Banking, Education, Retail, Councils and building sites without any network infrastructure.

Key Features:

  • 4G Compatibility
  • Secure and Robust Private SCSI Network
  • VPN Connection
  • Compatible with SMC RVR (Remote Video Response)
  • Great tool to help reduce man power costs
  • Supported in all Major NVR / DVR solution

WatchArmour

The Watch Armour solution from SCSI is a wearable technology for our bureaus to offer their end customers working in the Banking, Prison, School and Health industries.

This solution allows end users to trigger a discreet duress alarm back into SMC’s two A1-R1A graded control rooms.
It also comes with a desktop and phone app that works exactly like the watch and also has a separate alert button that makes raising an alert even easier especially for senior citizens and persons with disability.

What sets this product apart from others in the industry is that it has the ability to send an local emergency alert within the customers workplace without raising the alarm with the control room. If the situation escalates then it’s just a simple process to raise the alarm for SMC operators to become involved.

Another important feature is an interconnected relay board that connects input and outputs into the watch environment. This relay board allows the connection of inputs from other local security devices such as fixed hold up buttons and duress pendants. When triggered this will activate the watch system and alert all users wearing the technology that an incident is occurring.

Relay outputs can also be connected to an on-site security panel to lock down access control or trigger other systems such as pagers and warning lights or strobes.

Key Features:

  • Discreet alerting of duress
  • Custom watch faces allowing our installers to replace the logo with customer or bureau branding and colors
  • Escalate the situation through duress levels programmed into the watch
  • Touchscreen or button trigger
  • Team – based peer to peer alerting
  • WiFi and LTE-based connection
  • GPS, Cell and WiFi location tracking
