Georgia Power introduces video surveillance and security service

ATLANTA, July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power introduces SiteView™, a powerful new video surveillance and security tool, offered as part of the company's growing menu of optional services. With SiteView, commercial, industrial and governmental customers have the option to obtain a high-definition camera system, owned, installed and maintained by Georgia Power with no upfront cost. The service will also be available to homeowner associations and multi-family residential developments.

SiteView cameras are mounted on new or existing outdoor lighting poles and the video is provided directly to the customer's on-site video recorder or third-party cloud-based storage. Customers access the video through a customized SiteView dashboard and Georgia Power does not have access to the video feeds.

"We are always looking for ways to add value through new products and services for our customers, and due to our experience with street lights, poles and infrastructure, adding SiteView was a natural fit for our customer portfolio," said Randy Young, products and services director for Georgia Power. "Since customers own their video coverage, they can quickly make it available to aid in law enforcement investigations, insurance claims and to address security vulnerabilities."

Georgia Power's SiteView service is managed by Georgia Power Lighting Services, which specializes in commercial, industrial and residential outdoor lighting, maintaining and operating hundreds of thousands of street and area lights across the state. The company began piloting the service this spring in select areas of Georgia and is now expanding the service statewide.

SiteView is customizable based on customer needs, including an optional license plate recognition capability. Monthly pricing for SiteView varies based on the equipment and options the customer chooses in order to customize each surveillance solution.
