In Summer 2017, Sonitrol of Lexington and Bates Security completed one of its most innovative installations. The project at Frederick Douglass High School includes verified audio detection, verified video, and an advanced access control system.

The installation features verified audio detection operating in conjunction with the verified video system. Upon receiving an audio detection alarm at the central station, the operator also receives video footage for every camera connected to that alarm point, ensuring double verification before alerting police dispatch.

The system eliminates troublesome, costly false alarms with its two points of verification. The entire system can be conveniently managed by any device with internet access or via the 3xLOGIC mobile app.

Bates Security was awarded the SAMMY Award for Integrated Installation of the Year for its installation at FDHS. The SAMMY Awards recognize installing security integrators, dealers and monitoring providers for their marketing, installation and overall business excellence. The SAMMY program raises the bar for the entire electronic security industry by sharing the best ideas and practices with all.
