Every day, more and more business owners are discovering the incredible benefits of Remote Guarding systems. Unlike traditional security methods, this innovative solution actually helps prevent property crime before it starts, as opposed to only providing footage of what happened after the fact. By combining military grade analytics, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT), Remote Guarding solutions are helping to dramatically improve security levels across multiple industries and organizations. How exactly does Remote Guarding work? What are the specific ways in which this incredible solution is supporting healthy and profitable business growth? In this article, we break down some of the benefits of switching from a traditional security solution to a customized Remote Guarding system.
1. Lowers long-term crime rates
Over time, the installation of Remote Guarding systems has been shown to have a positive effect on long-term crime rates. This can be attributed to the tremendous increase in difficulty levels for criminals trying to bypass the security solution installed on the property. As the months go by, local criminals attempt to break into the protected facility less and less. This was witnessed first hand by one of our clients, Village Christian Schools. An Elite case study showed a dramatic drop in the number of voice downs Elite had to conduct to trespassers over a twelve month period.
2. Reduces Liability and Risk Levels
Another important benefit of Remote Guarding systems is the reduction in risk and liability levels they bring. Elite’s “digital guards” are capable of alerting human security agents of any unwanted activity on a property. Cameras on the facility record 24/7 as well, making sure to capture any high risk or vulnerable areas in particular. All of this becomes very useful information when any sort of theft, accident, or dispute occurs within the organization.
Normally there is a lack of evidence when an employee, customer, or visitor makes a claim and sues the organization. Having high-quality video footage can be enormously helpful in resolving these issues and avoiding fraudulent lawsuits. Insurance companies can also give discounts to organizations that install Remote Guarding security systems, as they know the risk levels for securing that organization go down significantly.
Businesses can save significantly in legal expenses, insurance costs, and prevent significant theft by installing a Remote Guarding security solution on their premises.
3. Identifies and protects vulnerable areas
Often times, criminals are able to break into businesses because of poorly protected “weak spots” around the property. These may be places where camera coverage skips, or perhaps a hole in the fence that grants access to a restricted area. Professional criminals are obviously experts at exploiting these weaknesses and using them for their greatest benefit. Thankfully, Remote Guarding security systems work to address these concerns immediately. One of the first steps Elite consultants take is a forensic analysis of the property to identify any vulnerable areas and options to secure those spots as effectively as possible. In this area, Remote Guarding expertise comes into play and helps Elite engineer the perfect security blueprints for each facility.
4. Builds relationships with local law enforcement
Having a great relationship with local law enforcement agencies can be incredibly beneficial to a business. Thankfully, this is an area in which Elite’s Remote Guarding security solutions excel. Elite Interactive Solutions works hard to establish relationships with local law enforcement agencies around the country by providing essential assistance to officers. Remote Guarding solutions actually lower false alarms significantly, helping to free up law enforcement resources for more important incidents. Additionally, Elite’s remote security agents work hand in hand with officers to make sure they are safe when responding to crimes on a facility. They are able to provide the criminal’s location and inform the officer whether or not they have a weapon. This valuable collaboration makes a big difference to a businesses’ security, as officers know that a call from their property is definitely something serious and not a false alarm.
5. Provides peace of mind during overnight hours
Overnight security can bring a lot of stress and anxiety to business owners and managers. Their property is vulnerable to attack during the dark night and they may show up at work tomorrow to a terrible incident. False alarms during the night can also cause unwanted and unnecessary responses at times of rest. Remote Guarding security systems are incredible at resolving these issues and restoring peace of mind to business owners. Our agents work throughout the night and work with Elite’s onsite “digital guards” to get rid of trespassers and prevent crime from occurring. Any incidents that do occur are handled thoroughly by the agents and law enforcement if necessary. In the morning, business owners receive a daily activity report that shows any incidents that may have occurred during the night.
In conclusion, Remote Guarding security systems provide a lot of important benefits for businesses around the country. Pro-active crime prevention is possible when a security solution is able to effectively reduce liability levels, improve law enforcement partnerships, and provide peace of mind.
