Centralized Vision Services Keep Your Property Safe

Centralized Vision Services Keep Your Property Safe BlogIntrusion and access control monitoring along with badge and data base management can keep your property safe from unwanted visitors. With our trained techs on the job, we can manage access to all entrances as well as take care of a variety of other tasks.

Our technicians can handle all aspects of access control from opening doors and managing unauthorized door props, to assisting tenants, visitors, and vendors that wish to enter your property. We can check visitors against a database as well as activate or deactivate an employee or vendor badge if needed.

In the past, your entry management options consisted of hiring someone to physically monitor all entrances and manage visitors. With today’s technology, you do not have to hire expensive security guards or door greeters to monitor the entries and exits.

Keep Your Property Safe

Our live monitored video surveillance along with two-way audio capabilities allows us to provide you with all the same services you would expect to receive from an on-site employee. When tenants arrive we can unlock or open doors for them as well as provide a number of other concierge type services.

We can manage vendors and repair people as well. When vendors or maintenance arrive at the premises we can check them against an expected visitor list and allow them access. If they are not on the list, we can take care of that as well.

Besides monitoring vendors and other guests, our technicians have been trained to respond in the case of unwanted guests as well. In the event of an unauthorized entry we will immediately notify on-site security or the proper authorities and continue monitoring the situation until it is resolved.

With audio capabilities we can call out to the guest to identify themselves. Our technicians will ask the visitor to identify both themselves and the purpose for their visit. The visitor can then respond by using the two-way audio call box or by making a phone call to our office.

With access control and badge management services in place, you may no longer need a receptionist to manage your guests, visitors, vendors, and repair persons. Our trained technicians can take care of everything remotely.

When guests arrive, our techs take care of them. We can check them in, direct them to where they are going as well as control and monitor their movements by unlocking and locking doors as well as surveying them on camera.

When vendors or service persons arrive, we can make sure they stay where they are supposed to be working by locking down all areas except those they are authorized to be in. This can eliminate several problems such as theft and property damage. You will not have to worry about visitors with Centralized Vision on the job.

From live video surveillance camera monitoring, to intrusion and access control, we have many services that can protect your property.

CV’s virtual greeter service featured in HOA Advisors magazine

HOA-Advisors_winter2014-PhoenixThe upcoming winter issue of HOA Advisors magazine features an article about how the virtual greeter service provided by Centralized Vision can provide as-good or better security than on-site security personnel at a fraction of the cost.

Technology to the Rescue: Virtual Greeter 75% Less Expensive than On-site Security Officers

Keeping one’s community safe is of primary importance to any HOA. But the cost of hiring on-site security officers can eat up a huge chunk of association resources. Thankfully, new advancements in security systems technology can reduce costs significantly, without sacrificing quality of security.

Here’s a look at what you expect from a good security solution, and the way they are handled by a virtual vs. on-site security service:

  1. Control access – Automated gates can be circumvented by people who tailgate residents as they enter. But if the security officer is sitting at the gate all the time then they can’t be roaming the community on alert for other issues. Centralized monitoring allows the virtual security officer to be everywhere at once – greeting residents vocally at the gate one moment and keeping an eye on a landscaper across the community in the next moment. License plate recording keeps track of who goes in and out.
  1. Recognize residents vs. strangers – A security officer may or may not get out of their car to meet and get to know residents. Facial recognition software and resident database management makes it possible for virtual security technicians to know who’s who and act accordingly.
  1. Monitor visitors such as vendors and landscapers – An on-site security officer can only be in one place at a time, whereas a virtual security technician has access to all community common areas at once.
  1. Detect suspicious activity and intervene – If the on-site officer happens by when suspicious or criminal activity occurs, he can intervene. With real-time remote camera monitoring, suspicious persons are easier to spot and law enforcement authorities can be notified immediately to intervene and pursue suspects.
  1. Keep an eye on your community at all times – Virtual safety-certified technicians are on-call 24/7/365, at one-quarter of the cost of the same availability by an on-site security officer.

With access to cameras, audio speakers, and the residential database live in real-time, virtual security technicians can be proactive, rather than reactive, and provide a level of service that would normally necessitate hiring a full-time on-site security officer.

If your association doesn’t have a budget to support an on-site security officer, or if you have one but would like to use a lot of that money for other projects, a real-time camera monitoring system may be the cost-effective solution you need.
