VSS Alloy is a network-based solution that provides a single portal to manage all of your surveillance cameras, access controls, facilities management applications and other mission-critical applications. Alloy's integrated mapping functionality allows users to navigate all live camera streams using building floor plans and campus maps. In the event of any user-defined incident, live video pages are pushed out to the appropriate staff and security to alert them immediately.

Commercial Facilities Video management can be leveraged for traditional security needs (loss prevention, employee safety, etc) as well as innovative revenue opportunities such as time-saving video alerts from delivery docks, or reviewing video for training purposes.
Education Purpose-built to be easy to use, VSS Alloy allows administration and staff to attend to duties while video of any emergency incident is pushed out automatically to designated first responders, ensuring the safety and security of students and staff.
Emergency Operations Centers When seconds count, a VSS Alloy provides a collaborative tool that gets expert eyes on an incident faster, which can mean the difference between life and death.
Energy Energy facilities are highly automated, making it unlikely that a person will be at the right place at the right time to witness an incident. Using video paging technology, command and control centers get live video of a triggered monitoring device immediately, even if it's in a hazardous area.
Financial Services Protecting an organization's vital assets and data centers is our top priority. VSS helps to ensure continuity in your business in the event of an emergency incident.
Government Facilities VSS solutions have been entrusted to secure government buildings and personnel throughout Washington D.C. and beyond.
Healthcare All staff is vital in a healthcare facility, but not all staff is needed for every incident. Facilities equipped with video paging technology have faster, more appropriate responses than those that aren't, also ensuring that resources like crash carts are available where they are most needed.
Industrial Facilities Monitoring continuous loops of video on the off-chance that there will be an incident is the least productive use of security personnel's time. Customers can define their own triggers and let VSS Alloy do the monitoring for them. Video pages send alerts to expert teams so that a minor incident doesn’t become a crippling emergency.
Law Enforcement and Emergency Response Our See360 technology provides first responders with precise video information on gunshot, explosion, fire, or any other emergency alert location.
Safe & Secure Communities Interactive, collaborative video technology serves communities on a day-to-day basis as well as during largely attended events, where first responders need to be alerted to even small incidents.
Transportation Infrastructure Busy shipping ports, train stations, bus depots and airports have so much activity that the only way to ensure you will be alerted to an incident is to have live video pushed out automatically. First responders can then assist with the incident while also maintaining the flow of travelers, shipments and vehicles.

K-12 school systems, colleges, and universities across the country face unprecedented budget cuts and staff reductions while student populations increase and emerging security threats demand more sophisticated security technology. VSS Alloy provides a single productivity portal for any software used in a school system, including office and administrative applications as well as physical security, thus increasing overall efficiency. Campus security is made more cost-effective where every member of an organization can have access to and participate in the mitigation of theft and loss, incident management, anti-bullying, and crowd control.

Some examples of security tasks that VSS Alloy provides in its network-based solution are RFID tracking, remote building controls, video paging, IP cameras with analytics, text to security, and integrated mapping.

Other common applications used in education that can be accessed through the VSS Alloy portal include:

  • Aspen
  • Blackboard
  • CampusAnyware
  • Destiny

Being aware of many factors, their importance and projected status of each, all in real time, or Situational Awareness, has been critical in any medical environment. Fortunately today, emerging technologies are converging to improve situational awareness. This automation enables the right staff to know where and for what they are needed, resulting in quality care and efficient use of staff. Likewise, the automated monitoring of life safety, security, and environmental systems means that maintenance is seamless, incidents are fewer and both patients and staff enjoy a safe, stable, and pleasant environment. Patients and medical personnel have many choices in where they decide to receive care and work, so providing a secure and efficient environment is essential to success.

The benefits of technology in health and senior care are not limited to emergency response. Video-enabled communication, automated monitoring, and med-alert location devices allow patients and seniors to participate in their care and live more independently without losing the careful attention of their care givers. These technologies can be especially beneficial for seniors by allowing them to age longer in their own home and their families by avoiding expensive residential care longer. Patient care and satisfaction remain at the forefront.

By providing a network based solution, VSS Alloy enables municipalities and governmental agencies to overcome the greatest challenges they face in keeping up with increasing security demands. A centralized network solution helps managers to identify and streamline problem areas such as inefficiencies due to decentralized IT, redundancies in security resources, the ability to scale security deployment with growth, and the flexibility to implement future technologies.

By utilizing VSS Alloy as a complete management tool, a governmental organization reduces crime and risk associated with violence, theft and vandalism, traffic control and moving violations, and crowd control. Just a few examples of the resulting benefits are reduced crime and risk with increased overall efficiency, improved city planning, and being more attractive to taxpayers, business and industry employers, and as hosts for special events.
