Local Security is now RapidSOS Ready, allowing remote operators to securely transmit text, picture, and video data with the click of a button.

VANCOUVER, BC: Local Security, a Canadian security technology company, today announced a partnership with RapidSOS to connect 911 personnel with remote operators in an emergency through the Local Security platform. Built-in partnership with public safety, RapidSOS’s emergency response data platform securely links life-saving data from over 400M connected devices directly to over 5,200 Emergency Communications Centers (ECCs) nationwide. 

With this partnership, remote operators can instantly transmit the entire incident profile, including device location, video, and pictures available on the Local Security platform, to 911 in supported jurisdictions through RapidSOS. RapidSOS also supports the sharing of other emergency intelligence data, including health and medical information, connected building and alarm data, and more, to increase the amount of information first responders can obtain during a call. This empowers faster and more effective emergency response and provides first responders with the critical information they need to protect lives.

“Local Security is committed to partnerships with communities and the organizations that use cutting-edge technology to secure them.” said Adam Power, CEO, Local Security. “Our partners can now deliver a complete digital status update including pictures and video to first responders with the click of a button, eliminating the typical bottlenecks of emergency dispatch.”

According to Jess Reed, VP of Strategy and Global Partners at RapidSOS, “We’re united in our commitment to empower safer, stronger communities with intelligent, data-driven emergency response worldwide. Together with our RapidSOS Ready Emergency Community, we’re providing people with an added layer of safety and security and we’re supporting our heroic first responders in saving millions of lives annually.”

Local Security supports service providers around the world. The Local Security platform offers analytics and real-time insights, and connects directly to a network of security guards, ECCs, and local support agencies, avoiding unnecessary phone calls and wait time during an incident. Local Security works with guard service providers, systems integrators, and IT service providers to equip them with advanced technologies to better serve their clients.

Sought-after products include Bounty Hunter and Camera Glue. Bounty Hunter helps service providers make every mission a success. Camera Glue connects to virtually any stream source including IP cameras, NVRs, hybrid encoders & more. The toolkit allows Surveillance Operations Centers an end-to-end solution for managing incidents from a video-first perspective.

With the launch of this solution in Fall  2021, Local Security will be recognized as RapidSOS Ready – allowing critical data to be sent directly to local 911 agencies in an emergency through the RapidSOS Platform. To learn more about the solution, visit: www.localsecurity.io
