As office locations and business districts nationwide remain at low occupancy and multifamily properties operate at near record levels 24x7, Kastle Systems, the country's largest managed security services provider, introduces KastleSafeVideo, a comprehensive remote video platform to help these facilities maintain security while also reducing operating costs through the application of cutting edge technology. Kastle's technology, supported by multiple patents in AI-based video surveillance, has been harnessed in KastleSafeVideo, which provides clients with robust video analytics and remote guarding services to bolster security without increasing staff. Cloud-Based services Clients can either self-monitor their spaces with live viewing through 24x7 recording This set of cloud-based services enables customers managing commercial or apartment buildings, as well as those tenants monitoring an office space, to access their video surveillance footage from anywhere on any device. Clients can either self-monitor their spaces with live viewing through 24x7 recording and push notifications, or employ Kastle's monitoring expertise using smart cameras with artificial intelligence to provide real-time incident response from a new U.S.-based Video Security Operations Center (VSOC) located in Falls Church, VA. The tailored service offering includes live VSOC-supported options that can help augment or replace guard staff to oversee empty commercial spaces or overcrowded multifamily amenity areas. These include dispensing live remote audio talk-down, which Kastle has used for more than a decade to actively dissuade on-premise intruders, as well as remote video patrols to make regular video sweeps across a property. Normal office activity "With a longer timeframe for a full return to normal office activity and a growing concern about crime and security during this delay, we reshaped our existing video services to meet an immediate need for innovative, modern security coverage at lower cost for commercial office buildings and multifamily properties," said Kastle CEO Haniel Lynn. "We see KastleSafeVideo as a safe and secure bridge to a broader return to the office that the KastleSafeSpaces platform can help facilitate." Kastle Systems remains committed to providing smarter security for a safer world during the pandemic and as Americans return to the workplace over time, continuing to invest in video services and expanding their VSOC to handle the increased demand with 100% U.S.-based remote video guarding.
Kastle Systems International, the provider of managed security solutions and services, and Rise Buildings, the provider of an integrated proptech platform that manages all the daily activities for buildings’ staff and occupants, announced an agreement to integrate Kastle’s digital mobile access credential functionality with Rise Buildings’ advanced occupant experience app. Rise Buildings is the first platform to announce a formal partnership with Kastle Systems to use Kastle’s new mobile Software Development Kit (SDK). The teams embedded digital access credentials for property occupants within the broader Rise property experience platform, strengthening the overall Rise offering by integrating leading managed access and security capabilities with other Rise features—including rent payment processing, package delivery notifications and pickups, maintenance requests, pre-authorized visitor access, amenity usage reservations and more. Improves Tenants’ Convenience And Experience The partnership encourages occupant engagement and adoption by meeting and exceeding their expectations for improved property experiences This ground-breaking agreement between real estate service leaders demonstrates their shared belief that providing occupants with digital access via mobile devices is an empowering, ‘sticky’ feature that extends the everyday convenience and experience for tenants, residents and employees in buildings anywhere. The partnership also encourages occupant engagement and adoption by meeting and exceeding their expectations for improved property experiences across residential and commercial markets. Rise Buildings has amplified the power and reach of its platform by partnering with Kastle, who offers the most robust hands-free digital access platform on the market. “As the first partner in Kastle’s Mobile SDK program, Rise Buildings can continue to focus on the advancement of our property experience platform while leveraging Kastle’s pioneering leadership in access control implementation and monitoring. “With a national footprint and a proven track record providing unrivalled access control across millions of square feet of real estate worldwide, Kastle is the perfect partner for us, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about what the future holds together,” says Prasan Kale, CEO of Rise Buildings. Superior BLE-Enabled Mobile Access Rise Buildings has led the way in developing innovative occupant experience technology that meets the demands of occupant expectations"Kastle Systems’ objective for its Mobile SDK program was to respond to the trend toward a more experiential, single app strategy and make sure that its superior BLE-enabled mobile access was available for any customer on whichever app they choose. “Rise Buildings has led the way in developing innovative occupant experience technology that meets the demands of ever-higher occupant expectations. The integration with Rise Buildings exemplifies the seamless availability of mobile credentials as part of a single, sophisticated mobile tenant experience, and is very much aligned with and ahead of market trends,” notes Haniel Lynn, CEO of Kastle Systems.
