How Video Verified Alarms and Priority Response Works

How Video Verified Alarms and Priority Response Works

Keith Jentoft, executive director of Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response and president of RSI Video Technologies, discusses how video verified alarms and priority response works to help policyholders reduce losses. The article includes two videos, one explaining video verified alarms and the other discussing priority response. Jentoft believes that a strong public as well as a private partnership is needed to combat property crime.

The key takeaways are:

  • Video alarms are taking the place of traditional burglar alarms.
  • Video verified alarms deliver priority police response.
  • Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response (PPVAR) – a nonprofit, public, private partnership based in St. Paul, MN that brings alarm companies, insurers and law enforcement together to reduce property crime and insurance losses.
  • PPVAR welcomes additional companies and associations to work with them to help use video alarms to reduce claims and losses.
