Founded in 1992, CRC’s alarm monitoring central station provides security, environmental, and medical alarm monitoring services as well as video verification and substation protection to more than 22,000 subscribers nationwide. CRC holds an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certification, the most widely recognized certificate in the industry. CRC also holds a membership with The Monitoring Association (TMA) and in early 2011 achieved the TMA Five Diamond Certificate, which requires an advanced level of alarm-handler training. Less than ten percent of the central stations in the United States have achieved this recognition.

Video Verified Asset Monitoring

As the price of copper continues to climb, metal thefts have jumped nearly 1,000% over the past ten years. Managing an unexpected copper theft creates the potential for loss of life to utility employees, loss of revenue to generation, transmission and distribution utilities – and service impairment to consumers. With CRC’s video verification monitoring products and services, you’ll find an affordable theft prevention solution. Our video verification services will not only provide you with video of the theft taking place but also real-time apprehensions, not reruns on a DVR. Our operators are immediately notified of an attempted theft in progress and will dispatch proper authorities of a real “crime in progress” instead of a false alarm. Just one deterred theft pays for the entire system and you have peace of mind knowing that future thieves will be stopped in their tracks.
