OAK RIDGE, Tenn., July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- At first glance, the small, picturesque town of Herndon, Virginia is an odd place for a campus safety summit. A former dairy community, Herndon, however, is part of the Dulles Technology Corridor, a cluster of defense and high-technology companies that drive innovation on the Washington DC/Virginia border. This July 19th and 20th, the Campus Safety Conference held at the Hyatt Regency Dulles will serve as the backdrop for the latest high technology-security partnership to hit the stage.
Professional Project Services, Inc. (Pro2Serve), a leading technology service provider and security engineering solutions firm located in Oak Ridge, TN, announced a new partnership with V5 Systems, a California-based technology company that's the industry leader in portable, wireless, self-powered security and computing devices for the outdoors. This partnership enables Pro2Serve to quickly expand its security offerings in the outdoor market. This was previously limited by security products that require a fixed power source and lengthy installation process, while V5 Systems' leading-edge, award-winning security solutions can be deployed where there is no connection to the electrical grid. As a result, public safety can be easily and rapidly expanded in outdoor areas where wired infrastructure does not exist. For example, college campuses can deploy and redeploy these self-powered devices to cover blind spots and outdoor events, as well as to track crime wherever it moves.
The Campus Safety Conference is the perfect setting for V5 Systems and Pro2Serve to demonstrate their synergies to campus PDs, administrators and student advocates, bringing cutting-edge technology to mitigate and potentially reverse the effects of campus crime and violence. Solutions such as V5 Systems Acoustic Gunshot Sensor detects gunshots in real-time saving critical minutes for first responders to act fast with immediate information at their fingertips.
Pro2Serve is a nationally recognized security solutions firm providing engineering, integration, maintenance and analytics services to meet the full spectrum of needs in the security community. They are dedicated to providing support to campuses, municipalities, and various industrial sectors. Leveraging a rich history of over 30 years in the defense, energy and science markets providing responsive, cost-effective execution of critical security and facility infrastructure, Pro2Serve provides a truly full-service solution specifically tailored to each client. Using a disciplined systems engineering approach that is supported by a dedicated staff, Pro2Serve provides solutions to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our government and private clients.
This partnership will enable Pro2Serve to expand into the outdoor security market with the full range of V5 Systems solutions, which consists of a state-of-the-art array of self-powered solutions built on a customizable platform. Quick-to-install, turnkey solutions include video surveillance, onboard analytics and an acoustic tracking sensor capable of detecting and pinpointing the location of gunshots. The customizable platform can be fitted with 3rd party software and hardware sensors. To secure outdoor areas promptly, all V5 Systems' self-powered devices can be deployed in under 60 minutes per unit.
David Evans, VP National Security Programs for Pro2Serve, commented, "We are pleased to announce our partnership with V5 Systems to deliver a truly portable, cost-efficient outdoor security solution providing video, gunshot detection, and edge computing. The ability to provide solutions of this quality without the cost of trenching and schedule delays is remarkable."
Mazin Bedwan, the president of V5 Systems said, "With Pro2Serve at our side, we continue to strive for enhanced safety in public environments. We owe it to our kids and our first responders to continue to push the boundaries of technology."
As a result of the partnership, Pro2Serve will be able to integrate, install and service the full line of V5 Systems industry-leading products within the education, industrial, municipality, government, and critical infrastructure sectors.
Pro2Serve implemented the partnership due to V5 Systems' innovative security solutions, which have been validated in use and by a staggering 13 top security industry awards the technology has won in the last 16 months, including the 2018 Security Sales & Integration MVP Award for its self-powered, portable acoustic gunshot sensor technology.
