The SCOT™ solution is ideal for perimeter surveillance for critical infrastructure, distribution and storage centers, data centers, high-value outdoor areas, homeowner’s associations and other restricted properties.
SCOT™ is customizable and can be used anywhere a “stand-at-post” guarding position is in use, at any visitor/employee check-in location and at any kiosk location.
SCOT™’s use of artificial intelligence allows it to deliver guarding services at a fraction of the cost and is considerably more affordable than any human or automated solution on the market.
SCOT™’s powers human detection analytics, featuring the longest range detection at low false alarm rates.
Additionally, SCOT™ RAD Software Suite, is a collection of integrated software applications hosted in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud services and allows immediate and mobile access to alerts and controls generated by SCOT™.
“Not only does SCOT™ allow flexibility for deployment, but it also results in an organization’s ability to scale as needed to fully address security challenges,” added Reinharz.
“Customers that need more control and protection of their facilities can deploy the SCOT™ solution at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.”
“SCOT™’s ability to be instantly deployed to a location makes it unique in the market, as many of today’s end users require solutions that offer immediate and long-term results without the debilitating cost or installation time of infrastructure investment.”
