LENSEC Company History
LENSEC was founded in 1998 as Progressive Systems LLC.
In the late 1990’s Progressive Systems began as a custom solutions provider of networked video surveillance. As a pioneer in browser-based video management, Progressive Systems was able to lead the physical security industry in the transition from analog-based cameras to devices communicating over an IP or network architecture. Throughout the beginning of the 21st century, LENSEC has worked with municipalities, schools, hospitals, and critical infrastructure facilities by installing and monitoring tens of thousands of cameras in over 30 states.
Once again, LENSEC has taken the lead in the security industry as a pioneer of the smart-client video management platform, Perspective VMS®. PVMS is the first HTML5 video management software for IP security video. We continue to break ground and forge the way for the physical security industry.
