Distribution Partners

V5 Systems raised the bar as a vendor. Offering a turnkey IoT solution, great support and margin for my business.”

Rhonda Del Collo, Synnex, Sales Supervisor

“There are very few products on the market which every single customer has a true universal need for, V5 Systems is delivering just that.”

There hasn’t been any unaddressed trespassing since we took over,” “Employees quickly found out that it’s making their job easier. Now if there’s a security concern, they can just get on their app and say, my site’s intact.”

Asked how he felt about Solbreez partnering with V5 Systems on such a large contract, Greiner had no regrets. “I’ve always felt valued. Honestly, I have direct access to everyone at V5 Systems. I’ve got just about everybody on my speed-dial. I feel like it’s more of a partnership than a vendor/manufacturer relationship.”

Kris Greiner, Vice President of Solbreez Security Systems

I never even gave it a thought that this could be a potential resource of revenue, or that a product would work in this environment. It was absolutely a unique case.”

“The [OnSight] units allow the city to identify the vehicle that is doing the dumping. Then they can match that to the DMV and tie it to a fine to recover the monies it takes to clean up the mess,” he said. “Being able to offer a solution to a municipality to recover its costs is a plus. And because they can levy these fines, it does have an impact.”

“Truly, V5 Systems’ solution was the one that worked. Now I realize there is a complete solution out there.”

Everytime there is another shooting we get another round of “what are we doing to prepare”?

Alan Cavallo, SJSU PD Captain


One of my first missions in combat, I was introduced to a sniper. The first thing you hear before you hear the gunshot is a apop as the bullet breaks the sound barrier [...] So now that detection has gone from human to [OnSound Acoustic Gunshot Detection] and that is invaluable in terms of reaction time.”

Major General Rob Ostenberg (US Army, Retired)

Civilians don’t necessarily have that constant expectation of disaster and violence, and it’s usually the innocent who get hurt.”

“Asymmetric warfare means planning to defend against an unconventional method of attack, directionally, or unconventional weapons.”

Paul Schwarz, V5 Systems Strategic Military Adviser


Securing assets has always been a challenge and I’ve been in the public transportation business for over 26 years. Knowing that our assets are being protected by Artificial Intelligence that’s running on portable, edge computers frees up leads in the organization to focus on their core business.”

Event Security

With V5 Systems units’ real-time monitoring, we’ll have visibility where needed. And because it’s a cloud-based system, it allows for collaborative security.”

Damion Ellis, Director of Safety and Security for the Moscone Center, San Francisco

It took a lot of imagination to shoot from a hotel building into a crowd,” he said matter-of-factly, recalling the gory details of the Las Vegas tragedy, just one year ago. “With that idea out there, who knows what’s next?”

“We can use them anywhere and just duplicate this set-up,” Lt. Bell confirmed. “I only wish I had ordered ten units, all with video.”

“I would definitely recommend V5 Systems to anybody,” he said. “I know this works and that it’s very simple to use. That’s what I appreciate the most.”

The technology worked really well. We used it to evaluate vehicles of interest. It allows us to expand past our traditional infrastructure and expand our footprint for surveillance and situational awareness. As a result, it expands our capabilities as an agency and university to be more responsive to our community.”

In the areas we wanted to monitor (with light pole power), they only have power during daytime when the lights weren’t on,”

“So I knew if they can’t give us power easily, we had to use solar.”

“We wanted them up for move-in day, and we hit our goal,” Tran said. “People in the Housing Department were impressed. Cameras are always a big thing for move-in weekend. There’s so many people, we need to make sure everything runs smoothly.”

“These things affect the quality of life for students,”

Even with traditional security cameras, it’s impossible to have someone watching all the time,” said Cavallo. “We just don’t have the manpower.”

“We train students and administrators in the ‘run-hide-fight’ method in case of an active shooter on our campus,” said Captain Cavallo. “And we’re going to start implementing the training as part of freshman orientation. Fortunately, the administration at San Jose State is all in favor of using high- tech to protect our students as well. We’re in Silicon Valley, after all.”

“It helped that V5 Systems is local, but it was the overall package that appealed to us. The ability to have gunshot detection and video all under one umbrella; something that can be easily relocated for special events or wherever trouble spots pop up,”

“We had a situation with a guy causing trouble, and we were able to track him all across campus to where an officer could intercept him,” said SJSU PD Officer Paul Marshall. “We were able to quickly identify him on the video download, leading to a successful prosecution.” “It’s really easy to use,” Cavallo attested. “I’m no rocket scientist with technology, and I got up to speed very quickly.”

“V5 Systems is helping us fulfill UPD’s objective, which is to create a safe learning environment for our students and staff. It’s hard to put a price on that.”

“To have gunshot detection and video all under one umbrella, something that can be easily relocated for special events. Really, why wouldn’t we want it?”

It frees up manpower to deal with other hotspots,” Lee says. “It saved our personnel time, and that’s dollars saved.

“With the units in place, we have more warning in the event of a storm surge,”

“In the long term, the OnSight units maximize value,” Lee says. “Before, I’d have to get in my truck and drive through a storm. And a lot of times, all that time and effort would be for nothing. With the OnSight unit, I don’t have to waste my time. It frees me up to address other important issues.”

“We liked that this was a turnkey system. It provides 24/7 video streaming. It’s 100 percent self-powered. We don’t have to worry about the system blinking out. It is more reliable.”

Jay Lee, a Field Construction Supervisor for the Santa Clara Valley Water District

“I would recommend the V5 solutions to others for the tremendous flexibility that you get with the camera system. You no longer have to worry about just having it stationery in one place. You can move it as your needs see fit."

Nathaniel Roush, IT Manager of Public Safety for the city of Hayward

We had a little bit of pushback on the cost of these cameras, but we had to educate the purchasing department that there are no other systems like this. Other companies just make an LPR but it doesn’t work with a surveillance camera. Doesn’t have that mobile capability.”

“We did have to go through a competitive pricing process. Now, after having them, we no longer have to do any selling because of how effective they are.”

“Loyd Kinsworthy, V5 Systems Law Enforcement Division, stayed in constant contact with us, and came out to reposition the units for better coverage on his own, which I thought was phenomenal.”

“I tasked a sergeant with monitoring the system at the park, and he was impressed that he could get alerts at home or anywhere he was. The whole time the system was up, there was only one false alarm, even with constant rain and the noise of a nearby freeway.”

“What’s amazing is that each unit only weighs 25 pounds. When you add up the equipment an officer wears every day — handgun, magazines, two sets of handcuffs, pepper spray, taser, radio, and bullet-proof vest — it’s the same weight,” “V5 Systems offers a high-value solution, both because of the ease of installation and the solid customer service, including law-enforcement expertise. For any police department, this should be a simple decision to make.”

“Controlling the environment is the best tactic to use to keep everyone safe, even the suspects,” said the veteran captain.

“We got such a great photo of the driver we were able to figure it out,” Captain Cefalu said. “Investigatively, that’s what you need to crack the case. Between the OnSight video surveillance unit posted at the shooting site and the OnSight LPR, we got pictures of them pulling in and pulling out, and a picture of the guy driving, dead to rights.”

“Our OnSight LPR was able to connect it all, for sure,” the captain affirmed. “The OnSight LPR broke the case open for us. Within two weeks we tracked this guy down.”

“The OnSight Portable LPR broke the case open for us. Within two weeks we tracked this guy down.”

“OnSight LPRs are priceless, I love them.”
