Q. What types of properties does Elite secure using Remote Guarding?

A. Elite provides Remote Guarding to all types of properties including but not limited to; multi-tenant residential, Office buildings, HOAs, warehouses, mixed-use developments, corporate campuses, schools, hospitals, and auto dealerships to name a few. A number of client testimonials can be seen by clicking here. We do not provide security for individual private homes.

Q. I have a Burglary Alarm, and Cameras that are recorded on my site, is that enough?

A. In our opinion, alarms and cameras alone are simply not enough. Alarms are a low priority response for law enforcement due to their high false alarm rate. Even if they are working properly and positioned in the right place to capture the details that you need to see what happened, cameras are only good for looking back at a crime that has already occurred

Q. Can I use my existing analog or IP cameras with Remote Guarding? 

A. Yes. Often your existing CCTV system and surveillance system can be incorporated into a Remote Guarding solution.

Q. I already have several guards at my property. Do I need to keep them?

A. It depends. Often we can help you replace your guards completely to save a lot of money. And where guards provide certain tasks that are not practical within the scope of Remote Guarding, we design a system that is a “force multiplier” that works to increase the effectiveness and often reduces the cost of your security guards. .

Q. Can I integrate Access Control into the Remote Guarding service?

A. Yes.

Q. If the analytics detect activity, does Elite record the event for future prosecution?

A. Yes, we store the critical events and can send captured images to you and the Police with your authority.

Q. Can I, along with the Police have access to the live video feeds?

A. Yes, you can access live video from all connected cameras and with your permission the Police can view the site live from any Internet connected device.

Q. Is there any reporting of activity on my site?

A. Yes, we send daily reports by e-mail, and can notify authorized staff by phone or text as well. Elite follows your pre-defined protocol to notify staff when serious issues occur.

Q. Is there a cost for Elite to come to my site and provide a detailed security analysis?
