S e CU r ITY SYST em S N e WS November 2018 Monitoring 19 By SSN Staff BAY CITY, Mich.—DICE made several announcements recently, including its new partnership and products with ACK Data, its inte- gration with CHeKT, and its new CloudEye video offering. DICE and ACK Data jointly creat- ed "Infinity RECALL," a new system that stores data in the cloud. "Infinity RECALL will allow us to store our customers' data in the cloud forever," Scott Sereboff, CEO of ACK Data, said in a prepared statement. With a small on-premises device, ACK Data's Infinity RECALL hardware captures a stream of data from any IP camera and delivers that to the cloud services provided by DICE. DICE Corporation developed an all-new back end that is being used by ACK Data, DICE said. "In ACK Data, DICE has found a perfect partner to sell our services and to work with us as we move the company into the future of video surveillance technologies," Cliff Dice, DICE president and CEO, said in a prepared statement. DICE recently announced its full integration into the CHeKT video monitoring platform. "DICE is com- mitted to providing central stations with access to evolving technologies and believes CHeKT's platform helps monitoring centers handle the high rate of false alarms that have plagued the alarm industry and have eroded trust with business owners and first responders. CHeKT's technology enables operators to immediately see the cause of an alarm and provides a solution for dealers to utilize their existing alarm systems and cameras," the announcement read. "CHeKT brings a new, simplistic approach to providing visual moni- toring at the protected premises by the professional integrator. The CHeKT Bridge pairs alarm panel zones and IP cameras or HD over coax recorders to present event and live-view video to central station DICE announces new partnerships, integrations and products operators in seconds," John Milliron, CHeKT's vice president, said in the announcement. At the beginning of October, DICE announced CloudEye, the company's new cloud video recording technol- ogy. "CloudEye is an industry-exclu- sive video surveillance and recording platform that requires minimal set-up, eliminates the need to pur- chase and maintain equipment, and gives users the ability to manage footage remotely. CloudEye is also able to integrate with other Matrix products, including Monitoring, SMS Communications Gateway, and Commercial Portal, giving users more value and capability than traditional video surveillance methods," DICE said. SSN noted. "When I first came to then-CSAA, all of our members were full-service, UL-listed central stations. And through the years, we added proprietary companies, contract monitoring compa- nies, and now we're adding anyone who offers monitoring services, whether in-house or through a contract monitoring company," she said. "Because there's so much transition in our industry, I suspect that the TMA of five years down the road will be a very different TMA than what it is now." Besore holds the Certified Association Executive cre- dential from ASAE as well as an MBA from George Mason University. She is a recognized association management com- munity leader, volunteering with ASAE programs such as the Diversity Executive Leadership Program for which she serves as a mentor. "Frankly, choosing Celia to lead TMA was an easy choice," TMA president Ivan Spector, said in a prepared statement. "Throughout the years that I have known her, she has been a tireless advocate for the association. Her energy, passion and enthusiasm for the industry will spur TMA to grow to the next level in a rap- idly changing landscape." SSN Continued from page 18 TMA CONGRATULATIONS CURTIS KINDRED Curtis isn't just one of the nation's most successful home security dealers. He proves that saving lives extends far beyond our industry. He was named Mission 500's 2018 Humanitarian of the Year for rescuing and supporting victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and surrounding cities. Curtis and two colleagues rescued nearly 40 people each day from fl ooded homes, as well as personally spending thousands of dollars and devoting hundreds of hours of their time. Curtis doesn't make a big deal about his efforts, so we will. Brinks Home Security ™ is honored that American Defense Systems is one of our top Authorized Dealers. But we're also proud that Curtis shows what is possible when people need more than just home security to survive. He is a worthy "20 under 40" honoree.
