Security Guards and Alarms

Having security guards to keep your property safe is a choice that will be very costly and won’t be functional. Guards will have limited coverage and they can’t be everywhere at the same time. Active Watch’s solution is like having a static guard for every monitored camera for a fraction of the cost of a guard.

Another security option that is available is having an alarm system at your property; the security industry assumption is that all alarms are false until proven otherwise. It is well known that 98% of all alarms are false and 70% of them are user error.

At Active Watch, we are the intelligence behind the cameras; our eyes are on the premises up to 24/7. We are not waiting for trigger activation; we watch for any suspicious activity and prevent it before it happens!
