Emza's "WiseEye" Crucial to NM Armed Response Team's Stake-Out System

Innovative security product launches ART's real-time visual verification and immediate, armed response business model for some area businesses.

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Athlone Global Security Corporation's portfolio company, Emza Visual Sense has teamed up with the leading provider of security and in-person response to alarm signals in the Albuquerque area. The Armed Response Team was formed by a group of retired Albuquerque Police Department officers who now serve as the first responders for the alarms of local clients by getting to the scene quickly in order to prevent crime.

The Armed Response Team recently launched a new service called Stake-Out System for commercial customers and Emza's WiseEye plays an integral part in the system's architecture. Armed Response Team's Stake-Out System sets a new performance standard for crime reduction based on immediate visual assessment of real-time threats through the company's monitoring station combined with immediate, armed in-person response from former sworn officers within minutes. For the first time, intruders or thieves can and will be detected and verified in real-time through video technology. Once identified, armed response will be dispatched in time to deter criminal activity.

WiseEye, Emza's new visual intrusion detection and notification system, is the core of the Stake-Out System. Using the WiseEye visual intrusion sensor, the Stake-Out System will cost-effectively monitor all areas of intrusion, not just the doors or windows covered by traditional sensors. "Some thieves are smart enough to bypass alarms," said ART founder and former Albuquerque Police Sergeant, Phil Baca. "With WiseEye, they don't even know that they're being watched or that we're coming in minutes."

The ART's Stake-Out System will be available in the greater Albuquerque metro area. "The real limiting factor in any traditional alarm system is the problem of false alerts," said David Meurer, ART's Business Development Officer. "Adding a large number of Stake-Out sites is possible because our operators won't be inundated with alerts from weather, light, and other environmental distractions. And the WiseEye is amazingly accurate in giving us only the visual information we need to make a dispatch decision."
