It’s third time lucky for RISCO Group at the PSI Premier Awards 2016

RISCO Group, the leading manufacturer of end-to-end solutions for the professional security market, is celebrating after its success at the recent PSI Premier Awards 2016, held at Brocket Hall in Welwyn Garden City. VUpoint, the company’s revolutionary live video verification solution, won the hotly contested Software Product of the Year Award, beating off stiff competition from a number of rival vendors.

The PSI Premier Awards highlight the very best in innovation and readers are asked to nominate products and services that are worthy of recognition as the best that the industry has to offer. Features, benefits, ease of installation and support are all reasons why entries are nominated, and winners were decided through over 3,000 online reader votes. This year’s event was by BBC rugby commentator, Ian Robertson, and was attended by individuals representing all areas of the security sector.

RISCO Group’s success makes it a trio of triumphs at the PSI Premier Awards. Last year it was awarded Intruder Product of the Year for its smart wireless security and safety system, Agility™3. In 2014 it battled it out in the same category and emerged victorious thanks to the LightSYS™2 professional hybrid system, which offers ultimate flexibility, with advanced IP and GSM/GPRS or STU adaptor communication, as well as a choice of wired, wireless or bus detectors.

Compatible with both Agility™3 and LightSYS™2 VUpoint seamlessly integrates IP cameras using the RISCO Cloud, which is powered by the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform. RISCO Group has a longstanding relationship with Microsoft and therefore fully understands the implications of the cloud model and designs solutions that deliver a higher level of security than many traditional on-premises solutions.

VUpoint provides an unprecedented level of security with live video monitoring capabilities for both monitoring centres and end users. Users can monitor their premises in real time and look at live video clips of up to 30 seconds length through RISCO Group’s intuitive iRISCO

smart phone app. In addition, video clips can be activated in response to a wide range of triggers – detector alarm event, panic alarm, or system disarm by code – providing unparalleled peace of mind for end users, and enabling monitoring centres to simply verify false alarms, saving on unnecessary visits to a premises and wasted resources.

VUpoint will also be integrated into RISCO Group’s soon to be launched range of SmartHome products, as well as its ProSYS Plus G3 panel, which offers single hardware platform with a unique licensing mechanism – allowing virtually unlimited scalability for any size of installation up to 512 zones.

‘This year marks the third in a row that our technology has been recognised at the PSI Premier Awards – something that we're incredibly proud of,’ said Steve Riley, Commercial Director UK&I at RISCO Group. ‘Along with Agility™3 and LightSYS™2, VUpoint is part of a trio of solutions that are helping to maximise the potential of the cloud. We see this as just the beginning of what’s possible with the cloud and aim to remain at the forefront of shaping how this technology can help protect people, property and assets.’
