A Sight and Sound Advantage is the Best Defense

When it comes to securing your commercial property or construction site, criminals are getting smarter. 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.

Security Tips for Your Educational Facility

  Educational facilities are meant to be a safe place for learning. Ongoing security concerns can distract from this purpose. Public schools, colleges, universities and private institutions are all exposed to vandalism, arson, theft and break-ins.

Four Reasons Why Your Business Should Have a Verified Alarm

It's late. You've just wrapped up all the business-related tasks for the day that you can, and lay down after an exhausting day when you get a phone call. It's the alarm company you've hired to protect your business. As panic races through your mind, the alarm company doesn't have much information to tell you. The fact is that 94-98% of all alarm activations aren't actually caused by break-ins or theft-related incidents. Trips in electrical signals, the wind, or that closet door that never stays shut can set off the alarm in your business, leading to a phone call from your alarm company and an anxious drive to your store to see if anything has been taken. This lack of information from alarm companies that don't use verified alarm set-ups not only wastes your time, but your money as well. After all, 94-98% of these false alarms is a huge percentage, one...

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...
