VuTeur to Attend F.M. Valenti, Inc.’s 50th Anniversary Roadshow Oct. 24-26

We’re greatly looking forward to attending F.M. Valenti, Inc.’s 50th Anniversary Roadshow Oct. 24-26! F.M. Valenti is celebrating 50 years in business by traveling across the region, showcasing the latest technologies and innovations from top manufacturers in the pro audio/video, enterprise and security industries. We are proud to have the opportunity to celebrate alongside this experienced industry team!

In Teaneck, N.J., on Oct. 24, North Haven, C.T., on Oct. 25 and Wakefield, M.A., on Oct. 26, VuTeur’s Emergency Management and Asset Protection Solution will be on display among the many tabletop exhibits, live demonstrations, and informative seminars. Attendees can view VuTeur’s proprietary technology, IRIS (Internal Real-time Intelligence Software), which enhances emergency management through Real-time Location System (RTLS), two-way communication and analytics in coordination with existing physical security systems including access control, video surveillance, intercoms, intrusion detection and more.

IRIS technology is critical to the security of the future as there has become a more significant need among organizations and campuses for situational awareness; security officials must be able to not only know who is in a building at all times but also communicate in real-time to all the individuals in the area.

VuTeur’s technology positions a campus for optimal observation to protect their most significant assets: people. At the Roadshow, VuTeur will demonstrate how its system can help identify an individual who has breached a secure location and speed up the response time to lock down a campus in the event of an emergency. Additionally, VuTeur’s technology enables the communication process between stakeholders and first responders to be quicker and more efficient.

F.M. Valenti, Inc. is a premier manufacturer’s representative company covering the Northeastern part of the United States, from Maine to New Jersey. For the last 50 years, it has covered this region in the security, professional audio visual and network infrastructure markets. F.M. Valenti focuses on working with dealers, distributors, end users and A&E’s using its technical capabilities and “feet on the street” strategy.

Securing Healthcare Facilities with RTLS and Emergency Management

Although most hospitals and healthcare facilities are designed to make patients feel safe – through round-the-clock care, attentive nurses and doctors, set visiting hours, etc. – these locations often become vulnerable targets when it comes to natural disasters, senseless attacks or intruders.

The vast and spacious layout of most healthcare facilities, combined with the large number of staff, patients and visitors roaming the halls, creates an environment that can be difficult to comprehensively secure. Add in additional moving parts, such as mobile medical equipment, and it becomes clear that effective visitor management and an efficient incident management plan are critical components of quality healthcare security.

When in the hospital for an injury or illness, people often seek comfort in their family and friends. Allowing visitors onto the premises and into private rooms is desirable and appreciated by patients, but must be done in a safe manner. Check-ins should be required at every entrance, and the proper identification should be required for access into protected areas.

Should an attacker make it into a healthcare facility, an emergency preparedness plan is essential. Advancements in technology have allowed healthcare security officials the option to utilize what matters most in emergency response: real-time updates. Real-time location system (RTLS) technology is used to identify and track the location of objects or people in real time, and has the ability to read wireless devices automatically and continuously, maintaining a strong connection despite the device’s location or movement.

When an emergency occurs, this technology can act as a two-way communication tool: first, by letting a mobile user know there’s an incident in progress and giving directions, such as “stay where you are,” and second, by allowing the mobile user to let the healthcare facility know they’re safe and accounted for during the incident. RTLS allows healthcare security officials to reach every individual within the predetermined area, which can span across floors and buildings.

Additionally, to save on time spent searching for medical equipment during or after an emergency, RTLS technology can be used to track and time stamp the progress of people or assets in a facility. The average hospital can accrue up to $4,000 per day in lost wages due to time spent searching for mobile medical equipment, and that’s just on a normal day; a natural disaster or intrusion could wreak havoc on hospital medical equipment that isn’t properly accounted for.

VuTeur’s Internal Real-time Intelligence Software (IRIS) is ideal for healthcare facilities because it combines the critical RTLS technology with two-way communication and analytics, and coordinates with existing physical security systems such as access control and video surveillance cameras. The Asset Protection platform allows users to identify all hardware assets on the IT infrastructure, and Emergency Management platform enables quick and seamless communication between healthcare security officials and first responders.

PRESS RELEASE: VuTeur Emergency Response and Asset Protection Platform Honored with 2017 New Product of the Year Award

Austin, Texas, Sept. 6, 2017 — VuTeur, an innovator in emergency management and business intelligence platforms, today announced that it has been awarded Security Today’s 2017 New Product of the Year Award for its Emergency Response and Asset Protection Platform.

The annual award program honors the outstanding technology achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security. VuTeur was selected as the top entry in the Emergency Communications Systems category for its ability to deliver two-way communication in real-time through mobile devices within a facility, streamline crisis response and elevate a security team’s situational awareness during an incident.

The VuTeur platform allows users to gain valuable intelligence by using real-time location system (RTLS) technologies embedded within modern mobile and smart devices to power two-way communication with individuals during an incident or event. VuTeur uses existing Wi-Fi connectivity to communicate directly with mobile users within a facility, allowing a user’s location to be visualized on a map of the facility and reported to operators and responders. This information provides a complete picture of which individuals are at most risk. The best course of action can then be determined and responses can be prioritized according to specific needs.
