Monitored Video Camera System Installed
We have a large industrial facility in Southeastern Massachusetts, which had a 24hr guard service for over 30 years. Due to cost constraints, we were able to eliminate on site guards through the installation of a sophisticated Video Surveillance System designed, installed and MONITORED by AAA Alarms from their off site UL Central Station. Through the use of "analytic" technology that is built into their system, we were able to create a virtual perimeter fence around our facility, which would "arm" based on schedules we establish. Video Analytics, also referred to as Video Content Analysis (VCA), is a generic term used to describe computerized processing and analysis of video streams. This paper will use the term “Video Analytics” with regards to the analysis of video streams captured by surveillance systems. Video Analytics applications can perform a variety of tasks ranging from real-time analysis of video for immediate detection of events of interest, to analysis of pre-recorded video for the purpose of extracting events and data from the recorded video. Relying on Video Analytics to automatically monitor cameras and alert for events of interest is in many cases much more effective than reliance on a human operator, which is a costly resource with limited alertness and attention. Various research studies and real-life incidents indicate that an average human operator of a surveillance system, tasked with observing video screens, cannot remain alert and attentive for more than 20 minutes. Moreover, the operator’s ability to monitor the video and effectively respond to events is significantly compromised as time goes by. Furthermore, there is often a need to go through recorded video and extract specific video segments containing an event of interest. This need is growing as the use of video surveillance becomes more widespread and the quantity of recorded video increases. In some cases, time is of the essence, and such review must be undertaken in an efficient and rapid manner. Surveillance system users are also looking for additional ways to leverage their recorded video, including by extracting statistical data for business intelligence purposes. Analyzing recorded video is a need that can rarely be answered effectively by human operators, due to the lengthy process of manually going through and observing the recorded video and the associated manpower cost for this task. While the necessity for, and benefits of, surveillance systems are undisputed, and the accompanying financial investment in deploying such surveillance system is significant, the actual benefit derived from a surveillance system is limited when relying on human operators alone. In contrast, the benefit accrued from a surveillance system can be significantly increased when deploying Video Analytics. Video Analytics is an ideal solution that meets the needs of surveillance system operators, security officers, and corporate managers, as they seek to make practical and effective use of their surveillance systems. Video surveillance systems are typically installed to record video footage of areas of interest within a facility, around its perimeter or in outdoor areas which require observation, with a view to “catching” (allowing the user to be able to observe) and recording events related to security, safety, loss prevention, operational efficiency and even business intelligence. Video Analytics enhances video surveillance systems by performing the tasks of real-time event detection, post-event analysis and extraction of statistical data while saving manpower costs and increasing the effectiveness of the surveillance system operation. Through the implementation of various image processing algorithms, Video Analytics can detect a variety of events, in real-time, such as: • Penetration of unauthorized people / vehicles into restricted areas • Tailgating of people / vehicles through secure checkpoints • Traffic obstacles • Unattended objects • Vehicles stopped in no-parking zones, highways or roads • Removal of assets • Crowding or grouping • Loitering And more. By defining the set of events that the surveillance system operator wants to be alerted to, the Video Analytics software continuously analyzes the video in real-time and provides an immediate alert upon detection of a relevant event. This technology is what enabled us to eliminate on site Security guards that were typically found sleeping. I would highly recommend AAA Alarms and their team of Sales Engineers and technicians that design a system that does exactly what we need and saves us thousand of dollars annually.
Remote Video Monitoring /remote guard tour
We run a chemical transfer facility that is on government terrorist target list, dispensing the likes of chlorine, acids and other dangerous chemicals. We receive chemicals in bulk via container ship, or trucking, off loading and storage at our facility and dispensing into customer sized containers for local distribution. Being a mostly outdoor operation, conventional alarm type systems would not be practical due to false alarm issues. We called upon the experts at AAA Alarms to design a system to monitor our facility. Since we are too small to support a 24hr security guard, we were counting on an electronic security solution from AAA. AAA Alarms designed a remotely Monitored Video Security system that THEY monitor from their Central monitoring station 24 HRs a DAY! The system consists of sophisticated outdoor and indoor high definition video cameras that automatically analyze movements to determine if it is human, crossing a perimeter in one direction, looks for regional intrusion from vehicles and persons and more. In addition to security alarms, the system also counts the number of vehicles and persons that enter / exit the facility, and provides for AAA central station to conduct periodic guard tours. We receive alarm video clips to our personnel smart phones at the same time AAA Central personnel are reviewing the alarm tripped video to determine if police presence should be requested based on live video feed. This service is invaluable and costs a fraction of 24hr on site security guards, and never falls asleep!

Awesome low cost monthly monitoring! $19.95!!!!!!!!!
I switched from My former alarm company who was charging me (I am embarrassed to say) $52.95/month! AAA was able to work my existing equipment, and for no charge, they came out, inspected what I had, installed a new backup battery, changed my user code and fixed a broken door contact, all at NO Charge! They explained they were happy to have us as a new monitoring customer, signed me up for $19.95!!! Yes you read right, $19.95!!!!!! I feel so foolish to have been paying almost three times that for years. Their monitoring station sends me push notifications, text message alerts and allows me to cancel a false alarm right through their app on my iPhone. If i dont respond, they of course call the police and my son. Not only is AAA 1/3 the price, they are 3 times better! Highly Highly recommend!!!!! $19.95. They offer remote control from my smart phone as well, but wasnt something I needed at this time.
High quality security cameras high definition upgrade
AAA Alarms recently upgraded our older security cameras that we could barely see a picture anymore. They were able to use existing wiring to minimize the upgrade cost, and we now have high definition color video cameras for our parking lot, that have "see in the dark" capability. Our picture quality and recording system is now very usable and finally provides real security for our office complex with multiple tenants. We can even zoom in and read license plates of cars to get to the bottom of problems. AAA Alarms service technicians are highly trained and very knowledgeable. They used our existing computer network for some cameras, saving on installation costs, and expanded our network using wireless technology and were able to install cameras in locations that dramatically enhanced our security and safety for our commercial tenants. They also installed an automatic door locking and unlocking systems, so we no longer need to pay for security guards to lock our doors at 11pm. Now our doors lock/unlock based on schedules that we in the property management office control. Great comprehensive security platform designed by sales experts at AAA Alarms!
Terrific monitoring price!
We recently got a letter of increase on our monthly monitoring fees from our old provider, raising us to OVER $50 per month! AAA Alarms was able to uograde our system and out us online with their UL listed 24 Hr monitoring center for $19.99/month! We have better service for less than half!!!!! Highly recommend AAA Alarms!
Best in class alarm monitoring and price!
We switched our alarm monitoring service from a high priced monthly fee of $59 per month to AAA's rate of $19.99 per month and couldnt be happier. AAA also came in, gave us a free new system battery, and upgraded our alarm so we can now control through our iphones remotely. The alarm monitoring folks are friendly, smart, and have great professionalism when calling us with detail on an alarm condition. We also opted to receive immediate text message notification of alarms which comes in handy. I highly recommend AAA for alarm monitoring and service!
Dept of Defense approved Alarms UL2050 CRZH
We are a defense contractor located in Middletown RI, amd had been with what we thought was the only approved Alarm Contractor in RI for 30years. What a breath of fresh air to find AAA Alarms for the task! AAA Alarms meets all the necessary approvals for Underwriters Laboratory standards known as UL 2050. These are specific alarm installation and monitoring standards that must be adhered to by government defense contractors working with sensitive information and equipment or weapons systems. AAA Alarms is a local company based in RI with the experience understanding the UL specifications and we are thrilled to have switched to their service. Our Security officers now finally get to sleep through the night without annoying false alarms thanks to AAA's unique multipath line security network system. I would highly recommend these folks to handle your high security needs, as the service is unsurpassed!
UL Certified (underwriters laboratories approved)
My insurance company, Jewelers Mutual, recommended that I contact AAA Alarms as they meet the standards of high security line secure systems required by The Jewelery industry, manufacturers, retailers, etc. We have a large scale jewelry production facility in Attleboro, Ma, with gold and silver inventories that require vault protection and alarm certification from Underwriters Laboratories (UL). We had been with a large National provider ADT, (now Tyco) for many years and have watched the service degrade to the point of unacceptable. We decided to reach out to AAA Alarms and Fire Protection to have them access our present system and possible upgrades in accordance with UL standards. As it turns out, UL has a whole set of standards for alarm systems ranging from AA BB CC with varying extent levels of protection ranging from Level 1 (which is the highest used for 6 sided protection of a vault or safe), down to a level 4 which only requires moderate coverage such as partial motion detection and partial opening protection. Level 2 stockroom, is what we needed for our inventory of both raw and finished goods. This is a standard from UL that requires "4 step" motion detection. That means an intruder must be detected by the motion detection system within taking 4 steps EVERYWHERE in the area "certified" by AAA Alarms. AAA is authorized by UL to issue certificates that certify our system meets these specific standards, and it delineates on our certificate, exactly what we have for level of protection. This is how the insurance industry can verify it is a "good" alarm system and one that a jewelry facility needs given the high dollar value of gold silver etc. We also have a walk in modular vault, that is UL certified as "vault complete" level 1. This means that it has protection on all 6 sides. Even if someone tried to burrow up through the floor, would the AAA Alarm react. AAA meets the level 1 specification for our vault by using a sound system that detects any blows or drilling to the walls ceiling or floor of the vault. Additional sensors such as a heat sensor is installed on the vault door to protect against a blow torch or cutting tool, which would generate heat to trip the detector, and finally a door sensor to make certain the door is closed prior to arming. UL does not recognize motion sensors as valid protection devices in a vault or safe, as they are easily compromised by blocking them (inside job). Our premise is certified by AAA and UL as level 3 protection. This standard requires every door or window to have a sensor installed, and additionally, the longest dimension of the room needs volumetric protection (motion), a long with a few other details. AAA's experienced team of sales, installation and service is the one to call upon if you need a UL certified alarm as they know these systems!
Bullet resistant protection systems! WOW!
Talk about complete SECURITY! AAA Alarms installs total security solutions that now only gave us a lock down system for our doors, but installed a total glass protection system that resists bullets and breakins! Finally true affordable piece of mind for our soft target school. Securing the entry vestibule with bullet resistance, man trapping our entryway with electronic locks and allowing teachers and school administrators and students through the main entrance using id badge cards and card readers, we finally feel safe!
High quality service and design from AAA!
I recently had AAA out to my multi-site facility to re-vamp my outdated access control system. Their sales rep was able to help me with the transition from my old system to their new Sielox system with ease! They were able to create a network system for me with remote web access from any place in the world! I am able to make changes (add/delete employees) immediately from anywhere I am. I was extremely pleased with the low upfront cost and the many service options available to me. From the first point of contact with the sales team to the installation and everything in between, AAA was excellent to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new card access system!
Wireless Fire Alarm System Installed by RI company
We received a letter to install a local fire alarm system for our four unit and five unit apartment buildings. The city of providence letter stated we were required by the Rhode Island Fire Safety Act to install a system consisting of smoke detectors, pull stations and horn strobes along with a centralized alarm panel. We had been getting very high prices from Alarm Companies here in RI complaining how difficult the installation was due to all wiring needing to be piped in conduit or raceway. In contacting AAA Alarms and Fire Protection in West Warwick, they advised me they could install a wireless system that would meet code and be much more cost effective, and look better as you would not see pipe or wires. I was very happy with the price, the installation, and the on going fire alarm testing that AAA Alarms does for me and give them a thumbs up on Knowing RI Fire alarm requirements and saving us money.
Access control system service was great!
We have an older computerized card access system that locks and unlocks certain office doors in the morning and end of work day. It was installed a long time ago by a company no longer in business. We heard about AAA Alarms as being a local company here in RI that services and installs these types of card access systems for business security. These folks really know electronic alarms and security systems. They got our old system up and running temporarily, and recommended a system upgrade path for our older system that was very cost effective, as AAA Alarms was able to use much of our existing equipment. We have since upgraded and can't say enough good things about the system and AAA Alarms for their high level of service. Our door locks, card readers and access control software are now all new and work flawlessly! If you need an Access Control System, i would definately recommend you call AAA Alarms and Fire Protection.
Video security camera installed to watch my driveway
For six months, someone had been vandalizing my car in my driveway! Not once, but three seperate occasions. I had my tire cut, my car fenders keyed, and tail light smashed. I had had enough! I decided to put some kind of security camera that would record the culprits, without breaking the bank. Luckily i contacted AAA Alarms, as they had the most cost effective camera option for my driveway. The camera installed has a wide angle view, can see at night, can record anyone or anything coming near my car, while ignoring cars driving by. I can review the video motion alarm clips anytime and from anywhere. I can watch the driveway camera from work on my smartphone or on computer at home. AAA Alarms came to my house, helped me figure out where to place the camera, lighting, etc, and gave me the price, which i was very happy with! They followed up with an installation where the technician was very professional and configured the camera for me on my computer and iphone so i can watch it and playback recorded motion activated video from anywhere! I love it, and have had no further incidents since the camera went in. I think me telling my neighbors about it had the word around. Highly recommend AAA Alarms!
Lowest Monitorinh prices with Local Service!
I finally found an alarm company that prices the service fees fairly! $9.99 a month! And I get installation of the equipment, on site service with local technicians if my system breaks, Video look in on my home, remote control of my alarm system from my Iphone, and emails clips of video motion events from my home. System is so simple to use, impossible to generate a false police dispatch, because i can verify what is happening in my home when the alarm goes off. I can even turn lights on from my iphone. Call AAA Alarms if you want the fastest response if your alarm goes off and top notch service, at rock bottom prices!
Affordable Home Alarm Monitoring and Service $9.99!
Wow, i was tired of paying $54.99 a month for my home alarm that half the time i didnt even turn on for fear of having a false alarm and a fine from the Warwick Police Department of $50. I talked to friends who were paying $30, $40, and $60 a month for their home alarm and I wanted a better system at a more affordable lower cost and found a breath of fresh air with AAA Alarms in West Warwick. The system I purchased was professionally installed by AAA Alarms service technicians and is maintained by them for a low monthly fee of $9.99! Yes you are reading correctly! I get instantaneous notification of any alarms at my home on my smartphone, and I can disarm it if its a false alarm or my plumber needs to go in when im at work. I can view live video to see what is happening and make a determination as to the reason for the alarm. Or simply disarm if its my cat setting off the motion sensor. Love my system and the peace of mind I get having AAA Alarms as a partner to help protect my home when I'm away! Highly recommend as they have the lowest monthly fee and the best local service available here in Rhode Island and Massachusetts
Cost effective Fire alarm testing and inspections here in RI
We recently switch to AAA Alarms and Fire Protection to handle our quarterly and semi annual fire alarm testing and inspections as required by Rhode Island Fire alarm and life safety codes. We were with another company charging our facility 3 times more than AAA for half the level of service! Glad to have made the switch and it's refreshing to deal with a local RI based family owned business once again! AAA handles all the fire alarm testing, submits the quarterly inspection reports to the local fire department, tests all the smoke detectors, pull stations, and horn strobes. Highly recommend AAA ! We additionally hired AAA Alarms to upgrade our video camera system to a new high definition system. We had old black and white cameras that had terrible picture quality. Now with have low light level color, with 1080p High Def Color, remote viewing on our smartphones, and 24/7 recording, that is easy to search to find incidents because it only records when cameras "see" motion. Great systems together with our business burglar alarm, make for a comprehensive package that protects our facility 24/7 for a cost less than we had been paying for obsolete equipment.
Business Alarm for Business Security- Commercial Alarm Monitoring
We installed a new business security system alarm with AAA Alarms and have been very happy since. We now can not only get a call from AAA Alarms Central Monitoring station, but we can view our cameras they installed from our smartphones and home computers. We did have a false alarm due to a new employee not entering his code properly on the keypad, but thanks to the remote control feature of the business alarm, I was able to simply verify who was in the building through the video camera on my phone, and then proceed to disarm the alarm also through my smartphone app. What a nice convenience to have! The system was customized to our specific business and it works perfectly. Thanks to the staff at AAA Alarms
Incredible Service on my Card access system
We had been having trouble with our computerized card access system from another installation company, and it reached a point that our old out of state alarm company was not able to fix it. Fortunately, a friend worked at a large mental health provider in RI who had been using AAA Alarms for years (i believe over 15 years), and now i understand why! AAA service team was second to none. They not only repaired some lightening damaged components but upgraded my 5 year old software to the newest features with many enhancements. Our access control system now runs flawlessly on a new computer and seemlessly controls which doors lock, when certain doors automatically unlock, who is allowed access and to which doors, what time the card holder is granted access to a particular door, etc. Thanks to AAA Alarms, our new alarm company, we now have photo ID badging built in, and we can log into and make changes remotely to our cardholder database. AAA Alarms offered us a custom site survey which carefully reviewed our old hardware and software, followed up with a comprehensive proposal to repair and upgrade certain components of our security system, and then finished with a swift installation/repair schedule. I highly recommend AAA Alarms to service your custom security systems!
Finally i can see my home from my phone!
I have finally hired an alarm company here in RI thats cares about false alarms and doesnt want them as much as me. After reviewing my older system, AAA Alarms recommended changing out the control panel, keypads, and all my old style motion detectors and glass break detectors. These turned out to be the culprits, because upon activating monitoring w AAA Alarms after the upgrade, i have not had a single false activation! Praise to David! Definately recommend especially if you currently have a national provider. Cant beat local family owned service!
Home Alarm finally works!
We recently purchased a home in East Greenwich that had an existing security / burglar alarm system already installed. We wanted remote control from our cell phones as well as some home automation functions: unlocking front door from cell phone (which automatically locks every night at a preset time, so no more going to bed and forgetting to lock the door). Our old system couldnt do these things, and we had received flyers in our mailbox from about ten companies. We decided on using a local company based here in RI as we had a bad experience with a "national" security company at our old home. We took AAA Alarms up on their offer of a free estimate to learn about upgrading the old system. Joe was great in explaining his recommendations, and he was able to utilize some of the existing system components that were in good condition, while recommended replacing the stuff that would most likely false alarm. He showed is the new technology to control our door locks and alarm from our smartphones and also recommended a new thermostat that would allow us to also save money on our heating and cooling bills by being
Fire alarm system in Rhide Island (RI)
We received a letter from our local fire department, demanding that we install a commercial fire alarm system in our facility. Upon calling the fire marshall, they were not able to tell us what exactly we needed..( smoke detectors, horn strobes, pull stations, heat detectors, fan shutdown, etc). As it turns out, they only "approve" designs, but do not design what we need. We tried to understand the RI safety code as downloaded, and realized the RI fire laws were extremely complicated amd confusing, with sections for multifamily homes, seperate from places of assembly, industrial, three family, commercial, etc. We asked a neighboring facility who they used and they recommended AAA Alarms and Fire out of West Warwick. Turned out our neighbor gave us a great referral, as AAA Alarms was wonderful to work with, as they handled everything from the initial design and surveys of the building, plan submittals to the local fire authority, permits, installation, final approvals, and continue to provide the requires quarterly testing and inspections and 24hr service that is required by RI state law. In addition, we decided to switch our security system to AAA for monitoring of both our buglar and now Fire Alarm system from their 24 hr monitoring station. All at a price that no other vender came close to! 5 star service! Thanks Nunzio!
Fast, cost effective, security solutions to our Company problem
We are a RI based precious metals facility that was in need of a multi facetted security solution. We had heard that AAA Alarms specialized in high security systems, so we put them up to the challenge. Our system includes: Access Control utilizing the latest in electronic door locks and card reader technologies, coupled with an integrated CCTV IP video camera system, recording with high definition and low light technologies. In addition, our insurance required Underwriter Laboratories Certification on our Burglar Alarm / Security System. We needed Guard response, UL Grade "AA" line security with encryption, along with safe and vault complete protection. Our old line security alarm company was causing us a tremendous number of false "wake up" calls in the middle of the night and staff was growing increasingly frustrated. AAA offered the latest in false alarm immune technology for its high line security customers whereby both the internet and Cellular technologies are married to create a 200 second constant interrogation of the link betweem our facility and AAA central monitoring station. Any attempt at compromise is detected within 200 seconds, but more importantly, if one technology failed, we no longer get woken from a sound sleep due to a false outtage in the internet or in the cellular paths. It is the industrys only true "Multi path" system, and for anyone that needs this level of security, it is THE ONLY way to go! AAA''s staff is local, friendly, and FAST! The know us by name when we call, and respond with the level of service we need due to the nature of our business. A refreshing change from dealing with a disinterested out of state National company!!! Highly recommend!
Great Prices! Great Security System!
We were having trouble with our cars being vandalized at random and were looking for a professionally installed Video security camera system. We couldnt be more pleased with the system and service from AAA. Our security issues have miraculously vanished, and it feels good to know we have recorded evidence if needed! Thanks AAA!
Fire Alarm Experts- These folks know RI Fire Safety laws!
I received a letter from the local fire department informing me i needed to install a fire alarm system according to "code". After several calls to the Fire dept, the informed me they couldnt specifically tell me what i needed, and i should call a fire alarm company. Fortunately, Joe and his staff helped me design and get approved, a system adequate to meet code, without breaking my budget(althougj i must say these installed systems are $$$). Working with Nunzio and his staff was great, and they completed the project on time and exactly on budget. Very professional, and I continue to use AAA Alarms to test and maintain my fire alarm system. They also installed a security / burglar alarm and a small CCTV video surveillance system that i can watch my business from home! Highly recommend!
Family owned local service solved our false alarm problem for less!
Great experience moving from and out of state Alarm company to a local RI based family company. We were having numerous false alarms and after three visits from our old company, we decided to find a local company. System was re-engineered and updated at no cost and we are saving money for monitoring with no more headaches or false alarms! Thanks guys!
Great Service, fast and affordable!
Enjoyed working with these guys to design and install a new camera system for my business and my home so I can keep an eye on both from my iphone. Very reasonable price and great service!
