Guardian Alarm, one of the nation’s largest privately-held security companies, is debuting Virtual Guardian, a multi-dimensional security program that leverages remotely monitored video and audio technology to enhance on-site security systems. 

The virtual security service is an augmentation solution for companies that require additional support in the background of traditional security services. With intelligent technology and smart cameras, Virtual Guardian provides 360-degree coverage to help identify a security issue at the first sign of threat.

“When a company’s security staff needs extra eyes and ears to ensure their people and property are protected, Virtual Guardian’s video and audio capabilities provide the real-time security support they need,” said Jason Tague, director of business development at Guardian Alarm. “A security guard can see threats from where he or she stands, but our 360-degree coverage can see it all. We truly are an extension of our customer’s security team working in lockstep with them on a daily basis.”

In addition to live, proactive support, Virtual Guardian can also positively impact loss prevention, employee retention and other areas of operational improvement efforts. The service provides highly trained video surveillance operators who understand behaviors of each property and use analytics to assess threat levels. Analytics Response Center (ARC) video surveillance analysts are always watching, always alert as they monitor the property from Guardian Alarm’s local ARC monitoring facility. These video surveillance operators have an overarching view of the property and the activity on site and remotely perform proactive virtual tours. Virtual Guardian can also deliver immediate and preventative audio messages throughout the property.

“Our virtual, real-time interaction capabilities help to create a connected community with local first responders, law enforcement and Guardian Alarm video surveillance operators to protect your business together,” Tague said. “Virtual Guardian allows first responders to have eyes and ears to a situation before they arrive.”
