Advanced IP Video Surveillance and Day CarePost Date: 2007-03-30

Birmingham, Alabama (SMI) - The Perfect Place Day Care Center and Security Management and Integration Company, Inc. (SMI) have agreed in terms to install an Advanced IP Surveillance Video System to support the center's operations.

"The system will allow our kids to learn, play, and grow in a secure environment under the watchful eyes of their parents, grandparents, or older siblings", said Bessie Bell, director of the center.

The surveillance system selected was SMARTVUE's S4 cameras and Digital Video Recorder. Smartvue S4 is the only fully integrated IP video edge device that reduces the cost, complexity and time to setup and use network enabled video surveillance.

Smartvue S4 also offers camera and system portability and installs in minutes - where and when needed. "With the SMARTVUE S4, we are able to provide scheduled lunchtime video conferencing between working parents, grandparents, and their kids", said Ms. Bell.

The system can be remotely viewed from almost any PC or cell phone directly or using the free InsightServer service. This is important in the center effects to provide AMBER Alerting to local police. In case of a incident in the center, local police are able to instantly view suspects via a response center or from their police cruiser. AMBER Alerting is a proven success and has helped rescue more than 230 children nationwide. More than 85 percent of those recoveries have occurred since AMBER Alert became a nationally coordinated effort in 2002.

"Advanced IP Video Surveillance can play a vital role as part of the AMBER Alerting seamless network in place to protect our children." said Cecil Avery, Principal, System Security Engineer, SMI.
