SaaS Joint development will enable Arlo’s first U.S. SmartCloud SaaS customer to seamlessly add Arlo cameras to the Securitas private LTE network for remote monitoring of commercial assets Arlo Technologies, Inc., one of the leading internet-connected camera brands, announced an agreement with Securitas Security Services USA, the global leader in protective security services, to integrate Arlo SmartCloud into the Securitas USA monitoring platform. Arlo SmartCloud, the SaaS version of Arlo Smart that is currently deployed as part of Arlo’s award-winning security camera solutions, will enable Securitas to bolster its protective guarding services by adding Arlo cameras for centralized remote guarding of its high volume of assets. Securitas’ commercial clients can also rely on Arlo SmartCloud AI -enabled security cameras including Arlo Pro 3 or Arlo Go to efficiently provide Remote Guarding services to sites that should have little to no unknown traffic, with advanced push notifications that allow users to quickly know whether people, vehicles, packages or even animals may be trespassing. “Arlo SmartCloud enables security partner ecosystems with the power of the most advanced computer vision technology and a secure, scalable and fully managed video cloud ,” said Tejas Shah , Arlo’s SVP product and chief information officer. “Securitas brings extraordinary assets in terms of people, knowledge and technology, as well as its best-in-class integrated guarding capabilities. We are truly excited to be working with them. Through this partnership, Securitas is able to further scale its services, which ultimately delivers peace of mind to customers by keeping a watchful eye on the people and places that matter most.” Securitas’ Remote Guarding service uses specially-trained officers, working at the national Securitas Operation Center in Charlotte NC, and advanced analytics which alert these officers to unwanted site activity. Using a live stream through Arlo’s cloud platform, the officers can then investigate the situation and determine whether to dispatch Securitas mobile officers or a public safety agency to the client location. By using Arlo Pro 3 security cameras, Securitas will now be able to leverage the response platform to initiate live streams of guards. Securitas intends to use Arlo’s SmartCloud capabilities to deploy its new Remote Guarding Go (RGGo) service. Securitas RGGo offers an easy to set-up, fully-contained security solution via Securitas Remote Guarding and Mobile Guarding, which taps the largest mobile footprint in North America, to investigate any activity and determine the appropriate level of response. One major RGGo application is being driven by COVID-19, in which a high number of buildings and assets are being left unmonitored. Securitas is using RGGo and Arlo SmartCloud to ensure incidents are observed and acted upon. Using Arlo Go cameras, Securitas’ RGGo service will benefit customers across a broad spectrum of industries including transportation, restaurants and hospitality, government, real estate and property management, retail and finance / banking. “RGGo is a natural extension of our industry-leading Remote Guarding capabilities,” said Koldo Eceiza, Corporate Vice President, Technology Solutions at Securitas. “RGGo has an incredibly easy install, highly competitive pricing, strong analytics and a direct connection to our Securitas Operation Center. This packaged solution, combining technology with our monitoring and response services, is in high demand. In just 60 days we’ve already had over 200 client installs – our fastest service launch ever. Teaming with Arlo brings together our 160+ years of industry leadership with a company that is transforming the smart device industry. This is extending our reach in select markets.” Arlo SmartCloud is a fully managed robust global platform of innovative capabilities built for security, scalability and reliability that can be easily deployed as part of advanced subscription services for hardware companies, automotive companies, service providers, insurance companies, home builders, smart communities, smart cities, traditional security companies, and other related verticals.
