As a part of one of the largest life safety companies in the world we understand the importance of each and every signal that we monitor.

Remote Video Monitoring Services

In 2008, Acadian began providing video monitoring services throughout the United States. Since that time and with the help of a number of talented individuals, Acadian has taken its remote video monitoring division from five dedicated video analysts to a division with more than thirty dedicated, hardworking video analysts. By maintaining strong relationships with its dealer partners and with a growing need for video monitoring services, Acadian has grown its existing business to the point that it now monitors over seven thousand video-related devices across one thousand video sites.
Acadian is currently capable of monitoring traditional video analytics which are activated by pixel modification formulas as well as non-traditional analytics which are activated by artificial intelligence formulas. Acadian takes pride in working with a number of various video analytics companies to ensure that every Acadian dealer partner implements the perfect solution for meeting the needs of their clients. 

The highest standards in the monitoring industry.

Acadian Monitoring Services is an employee owned ESOP company.


Dealers can find security in the fact that Acadian is not owned by a big financial firm that buys, changes, consolidates and then sells monitoring companies for a living. Acadian Monitoring Services is an ESOP company and is in fact one of a very few monitoring companies in the world that is an employee owned. Being an employee owned company is important to Acadian because it provides a extra incentives to all employees to do everything they can to provide monitoring services that few companies can match.

With that said, at Acadian, extra financial incentives are just a small part of what drives our employees to be their best. As part of the United States largest privately owned ambulance company, our mission goes beyond handling alarms. We understand that the work we do in partnership with our dealers is about protecting the lives and livelihoods of our dealers' customers. It is because of this that we go beyond the industry standards in everything we do.
