CLAWSON, Mich.—Security solutions provider Huffmaster Crisis Response has announced a strategic partnership with Elite Fire Safety, a division of Sciens Building Solutions (“sciens”).

According to Huffmaster, this collaboration “revolutionizes” remote camera monitoring by integrating a mobile security camera trailer (Remote Tactical Surveillance Unit - RTSU) with Huffmaster’s VirSec Operation Center.

HuffmasterAs part of this partnership, Huffmaster will deploy Elite Fire Safety's new RTSU across the United States. These advanced trailers, equipped with the latest surveillance technology, will transmit live feeds to Huffmaster's VirSec Operation Center. The VirSec team will monitor these feeds 24/7, ensuring a rapid response to detected suspicious activity.

In addition to mobile units, Huffmaster will provide remote monitoring services for permanent camera locations installed or serviced by Elite Fire Safety’s Security Division.
