How much time do you and your staff members spend collecting hard drives from your bus fleet?

Our software solution also provides video footage to support predefined alert notifications for quick and easy review.

Always know your surveillance equipment and vehicle’s engine is fully operational before leaving the lot. ARMOR-Diagnostics combined with REI’s comprehensive surveillance solution and J-1939 CAN-BUS interface proactively monitors the health and operational status of surveillance equipment and the engine. You’ll receive automatic reports detailing whether the equipment and/or engine is offline, low on power, or fully functional. Managing your operation’s health status minimizes the risk of surprise breakdowns and liability in the lack of surveillance coverage.
REI’s stop-arm solution is the most advanced on the market today, with motion-activated high-resolution, day/night sensor cameras that are optimized for viewing the front and rear license plate in up to four lanes of traffic. The violation is automatically recorded on your DVR and flagged for easy search and identification on ARMOR-StopArm via a wireless connection. Violations are analyzed and prioritized for your review. By working with your local law enforcement, you’ll raise awareness and increase the safety of your students.
Implementing a user-friendly surveillance solution allows for quick video review by events and notifications you deem important. Utilize data trends to streamline operations and even save money on fuel costs by reducing idle time. Set up and receive automatic notifications via email and/or text message alerting you once the bus has returned to the lot. Automatic notifications can be easily set up for, but not limited to: bus speed, driving outside the geofence, idle time, stop-arm and warning lights activation, and much more.
Including A.R.M.O.R.-Driver to your surveillance solution provides data and supporting video footage detailing a driver’s behavior. This information allows for a conversation with the driver to enhance or minimize that person’s behavior behind the wheel. The data is associated with a scanned I.D. badge assigned to the driver, not the vehicle. When needed, or at regular intervals, generate automatic reports to view speed, driving outside the geofence, excessive idle times, etc. to begin the conversation.
Your time is valuable and you don’t need to spend it following the rabbit hole of a touchtone operating system, only to get an automated response. REI provides 24/7/365 live, U.S.-based customer support to get you the answers you need and back on the road quickly. You’ll speak with a qualified, knowledgeable REI employee each and every time.
