Centralized Vision is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Benson Systems to offer our Virtual Guard monitoring service for commercial property managers, management companies and other businesses.
Virtual Guard is a pro-active video managed service available through a building’s security camera system equipped with access control and a speaker and microphone system. The service allows Centralized Vision’s well-trained security technicians to monitor any company’s video camera, access control and audio speaker system remotely through a high-speed Internet connection at all hours of the day.
When an incident occurs on a site that is a participating in our Virtual Guard program, the Centralized Vision security techs are alerted. They quickly respond to the alert by using the security camera system equipped with a loud speaker to engage the suspect and move him off the property. The security techs can also contact local law enforcement authorities immediately if they deem the situation warrants attention.
Centralized Vision and Benson Systems are excited to offer this service to Class A building property managers and retail businesses because it greatly reduces ongoing security expenses while also providing a service that is more beneficial than an onsite guard or roving patrol service. Our combined services are already in place at the Stockyards Restaurant and surrounding office complexes in Phoenix and at the 60,000-square-foot Biltmore Circle office building in Central Phoenix.
Benson Systems, whose mission is to be a trusted single-source provider of vital facilities services, system integration and installation, does a great job in taking care of security system, security camera and card access needs for companies throughout Arizona. Now with Centralized Vision’s innovative security platform, both companies can provide pro-active protection of property and assets by using a remote-camera monitoring system with real-time response options.
