STANLEY Security, one of the UK’s leading security providers, has extended its range of remote services with the introduction of Remote Guard. Remote Guard uses a clever combination of CCTV, access control, intercoms and remote monitoring to take over the duties of security guards, all at a fraction of the cost.
At the heart of Remote Guard is STANLEY Security’s Category 2 NSI Gold Standard BS5979 accredited monitoring centre, where highly trained professional operatives use electronic security systems on customers’ sites to remotely conduct security guard tasks such as visitor validation, vehicle access and area lockdowns. CCTV cameras enable operatives to identify and validate incoming vehicles. Intercom and cameras with 2-way audio provide effective communication with drivers and enable any instructions to be clearly delivered. Access control is used to unlock doors, gates and barriers.
Wherever possible, existing on-site security equipment is used by Remote Guard to make it highly cost-effective and sustainable, although this will depend on the age and sophistication of that equipment. A STANLEY Security technician is sent to the site to assess whether existing equipment is compatible. Where new equipment is required, cameras with Wi-Fi connectivity are used and connected to the remote monitoring centre is via secure IP (Internet) connectivity. Depending on the set-up of the system, configuration and testing can be completed within a week, for a fast turnaround.
As well as fast to set up, Remote Guard is also highly cost-effective, starting from as little £2.99 per hour (excluding any additional equipment required) for full professional monitoring 24/7.
Remote Guard is just one of the remote security monitoring services that STANLEY Security provides. With more and more organisations wanting to maintain site security, but without the expense of on-site staff, STANLEY Security has expanded its remote monitoring services to cover Remote Audio Talk-down, Remote Guard Tours, Remote Video Safeguard, the STANLEY Guard personal protection app, Remote Video Verification & Audio Challenge and Remote Key Holding & Alarm Response.
