A Sight and Sound Advantage is the Best Defense

It’s not enough to have an effective camera system, you also need to HEAR what is happening during a break-in.  Most importantly, the incident must be VERIFIED.

Public schools, colleges, universities and private institutions are all exposed to vandalism, arson, theft and break-ins.

Verified Alarms: The Best New Security System

In New Jersey alone, there were more than 140,000 property crimes committed in 2017. Now, a new type of commercial security system, called verified alarms, can decrease those numbers. Verified alarms are a unique type of technology that allow highly trained professionals to monitor commercial properties, schools, and offices via live digital video surveillance and audio feed from an off-site location. Unlike traditional alarms, verified alarms are monitored by people who watch and listen for criminals around the clock. Traditional New Jersey security systems can have a built-in delay ranging anywhere from 30 seconds to three minutes before they contact the monitoring company. A lot can happen in that small time frame. Most burglaries (from start to finish) take an average of eight to 12 minutes. With verified alarms, there is no delay. The professionals who are watching live video can get the police to the property quicker. These new New Jersey security...

By installing managed access control you can make sure that only authorized tenants have access to your property. 2 - Do you have a robust security system installed?
