Emergency Units can Respond Quickly - While an Operator Maintains Continuous & Complete Situational Awareness.

Talkaphone, a leading manufacturer of emergency call box products, is now part of the Arecont Vision Technology Partner Program.  Talkaphone products are integrated with Arecont Vision cameras in a wide variety of verticals and applications including parks and open spaces, schools, corporate campuses, parking lots and structures, and city streets.

“Talkaphone is very proud that our products are Made in the USA, just like the Arecont Vision cameras,” said Bob Shanes, Vice President of Sales for Talkaphone. “Together, this ensures that our installations are of the best possible quality that will stand up to the most challenging applications, ensuring safety regardless of location.” 

A Talkaphone call box with an Arecont Vision SurroundVideo multi-sensor megapixel panoramic 180 or 360 degree camera or a SurroundVideo Omni with a omnidirectional camera are increasing security and situational awareness.  New call boxes can be delivered by the integrator with Arecont Vision cameras as part of the solution.  And many call boxes that are already installed can be affordably upgraded by the addition of an Arecont Vision SurroundVideo or SurroundVideo Omni multi-sensor camera.

Talkaphone is a leading designer and manufacturer of security and life safety communication products and solutions for customers around the globe.  With over 80 years of experience creating communications solutions, Talkaphone designs attractive, robust, and reliable products, focuses on continuous technology advancement, and pledges a total commitment to customer and partner success.

“Talkaphone emergency call boxes serve as a critical alarm system on campuses and businesses across the country,” said Jason Schimpf, Director of Sales Operations & Partner Relations, Arecont Vision.  “Adding an Arecont Vision IP megapixel camera, such as our unique SurroundVideo® Omni G2 featuring 4 independently adjustable motorized sensors, provides the system operator comprehensive coverage and excellent detail leading up to, during, and after the emergency button was pushed.  This allows emergency units to respond quickly while providing the operator continuous and complete situational awareness.

The Arecont Vision Technology Partner Program includes sales, development, and support contacts between the two companies in order to better engage with end user customers and integrators, integrate new features and technology, and quickly resolve customer support issues. Customers are already benefiting from integrated Arecont Vision and Talkaphone installations.
