If you’re upgrading your commercial security system or looking to install a system brand new, you need to get up to speed on what your choices are.

One type of monitoring system you may come across uses pull video technology. With pull technology, when an alarm is triggered a notification is sent to operators who then have to sign-in to the video to evaluate it.

This isn’t the case with SonaVision. 

SonaVision by Sonitrol, uses push technology - so if a criminal or vehicle is detected entering your premises the video feed is instantly sent to our security operators to review it. With this form of security system precious time is saved and the operator can take action right away and dispatch the police. Remember any delay in seeing what actually caused the alarm can mean the thief gets away with the goods.

SonaVision verified push video technology is the best way to catch criminals

  • The transmission and review of the push video is achieved in only seconds and once the criminal activity is verified by our operators, a police dispatch immediately follows - and the police demand verification!  Conventional monitored video takes many minutes to view recorded video and many minutes can transpire before any action is taken.

  • SonaVision can be configured in many different ways to suit your facility and business - wired or wireless, so communication is by phone line, internet connection or mobile cellular.

  • SonaVision can also be powered by wired hydro or battery for remote locations.

  • We offer a SonaVision MySonitrol remote dial-in service to view live video for supervision of staff and all after hours activity.
