Guardex Security will receive all alerts triggered from any alarm activation within 60 seconds from detection by the Alarm Monitoring Control Company.
This enables Guardex Security to be in a position to respond rapidly in case of any event whether it is a burglary, fire, intruder alert or a medical activation triggered Guardex Security will be ready to respond rapidly.
Response time is paramount for Guardex Security as this could be the difference between life and death in the event of an alert being triggered. In most instances we are on site within 5-10 minutes from activation whilst our Security Control Room operators are on the telephone with the relevant emergency authorities updating them on the situation.
Insecure premises are an open invitation to burglars, so every business should have at least one Guardex Security Guard to ensure that your site is secure after staff have left for the day.
When carrying out building security checks, Guardex Security Guards regularly find:
- Doors that are open or unlocked
- Windows left wide open
- Alarms not set after staff have left for the day
- Lights left switched on unnecessarily
- Machinery and equipment left switched on and running
- Heaters left switched on
- Vehicles left unlocked and even with the keys still inside
- Suspicious people lurking about outside the premises
Aside from the building security aspects, Guardex Security Guards have found broken or leaking pipes and also smoldering ashes (for example caused by welding or other hot works) that are a serious fire risk. In these cases, the guard has been able to deal with the situation there and then, which has avoided costly damage to the buildings on site concerned.
Once your building is secure for the night, you have significantly reduced the likelihood that opportunist burglars will target your property by making it more difficult for them to get in. However, determined burglars may well still be interested in targeting you, so subsequent security patrol checks are important also.
After Guardex Security patrols have completed the first check of your building and can be sure that all is well, they can then perform further visits during the night (or during the daytime over the weekend) to provide a further deterrent.
Security patrol checks are an excellent deterrent to burglars, vandals and arsonists because patrolled premises mean that a security guard could turn up at any time unannounced.
Guardex security patrols regularly find suspicious vehicles and persons around client’s premises and are experienced in dealing with offenders caught in the act.
