The following video is from David, one of our clients who used the video footage to prove who was at fault. In the words of David "If a photo is work 1,000 words, the video evidence is worth 100,000."

Retail Businesses and Intrusion Alarms │Surprise

Retail Businesses and Intrusion Alarms Surprise

Intrusion Alarms Protect Inventory and Property


Commercial retail business owners operating in Surprise, are you aware of the many types of intrusion alarms available to suit the needs of your particular business for protection against intruders and theft?

An intrusion alarm is engineered to note the intrusion of any unauthorized person into your store. Intrusion alarms offer protection against inventory shrinkage and acts of vandalism.

In more sophisticated intrusion alarm systems integration with a closed-circuit television (CCTV) security monitoring system will record criminals in the act of theft or property damage.

Depending on the size of your commercial retail business you may only need a device, which emits a beeping sound; for instance, every time a customer enters or leaves the store. If you own a smallish retail business like a donut or sandwich shop this would be an appropriate and affordable solution.

Larger commercial retail businesses such as large appliance stores may need intrusion alarm devices equipped with security cameras, spotlights, and lasers.

Commercial retail businesses like car dealerships might choose a premises control unit (PCU), or alarm control panel (ACP). These sensor-based intrusion alarms scan inputs and warns whenever there is an intruder.

Grocery store owners might want the protection of an alerting intrusion alarm device. Usually equipped with bells, sirens, or a combination of sirens and flashing lights, it can serve a dual function: signaling an intruder has entered and startling them into leaving.

Many more types of intrusion alarms are manufactured including motion detectors, photoelectric beams, hold up / panic, and door contacts to name some.

An intrusion alarm that meets the needs of your retail business is out there. For more information, and to consult with an intrusion alarm expert, call  Phoenix Surveillance today at 602-248-8477 or click the link below to request a quote.


Hospitals and Access Control │Glendale

Hospitals and Access Control Glendale

New Access Control Technology Making an Impact in Healthcare


Healthcare facilities in the Glendale area are facing increasing challenges in improving their security monitoring. Security monitoring is a broad category that covers surveillance cameras, fire alarms, surveillance systems, and intrusion alarms. Security monitoring also includes access control.

Access control in a hospital setting has undergone a transformation, due in part to terrorist attacks that are sadly common. The other reasons are improvements in patient care and protection of hospital medical assets, including ancillary medically-related items.

Access control is a broad topic, applicable to the Internet, computer operating systems, security monitoring networks, business and industry environments.

In full-service hospitals such as exist in Glendale, access control is used in vulnerable spaces like child-birthing rooms, emergency rooms, and ICU. Other areas that must also be access-controlled include storage spaces for prescribed medications, medical supply cabinets, and other items essential for patient care.

Access control security monitoring systems must be able to adapt to the requirements of multiple departments that possess individual needs and differing operational procedures. Flexibility is essential to permit authorized hospital staff to move about without constraints. Authorized access must be coordinated across all relevant departments to keep the functioning of the hospital efficient.

It’s not just hospital staff activities that must be access-controlled, but also aberrant patient behavior. Towards this objective security monitoring manufacturing companies in the forefront of the latest in access control technologies are offering patient-wandering detection systems, which can be incorporated into access control systems like closed circuit television (CCTV).

Other access control innovations include no-touch access control door readers that can scan credentials, authorizing entry by automatically opening the door.

Intelligent keys are another new access control technology gaining acceptance. An intelligent key cannot be duplicated; it can only be replaced with another key that fits the simple cylinder.

These access control technologies and others are changing the landscape of large and small healthcare facilities to the benefit of administrators, doctors, nurses, radiologists, lab technicians, volunteers, and other medical professionals.

Surveillance Cameras and Shopping Malls │Gilbert

Surveillance Cameras and Shopping Malls Gilbert


Surveillance Cameras Protect, Deter, and Curb Crime at Shopping Malls

Commercial shopping malls, as operation managers in Gilbert know, attract more customers than just about any other commercial business. Shopping malls are usually multi-leveled, holding retail outlets, many casual dining establishments, movie theaters, even hair salons.

Vast amounts of money exchange hands, and merchandise is openly available for clever shoplifters. Storage spaces receive inventory from loading docks, so there are plenty of opportunities for thieves to swipe items.

With all this activity occurring in such busy and crowded environments surveillance cameras are an absolute must to deter and catch thieves, including dishonest employees.

Shopping malls use several types of surveillance cameras to observe shoppers. In this respect, they serve three purposes: to detect crimes taking place, record violent incidents, and give customers the assurance they are being protected.

CCTV Surveillance Cameras

Many shopping malls employ closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras to watch over public areas such as food courts and movie theater lobbies.  CCTV surveillance cameras are capable of producing good-quality images, and security officers at remote locations get an accurate view of the mall environment.

Bullet Surveillance Cameras

Bullet surveillance cameras are visible and typically used to monitor activity in parking lots. They must be strategically placed because they are fixed to target only specified areas.

Dome Surveillance Cameras

Dome surveillance cameras are hard to detect because they feature a dark-colored lens. They are usually discovered in passageways, retail outlets, and food courts. If an individual does notice a dome camera they can’t tell in which direction the surveillance camera is pointed. A dome camera possesses a wide-angle lens so larger spaces can be targeted for illicit activity.

Surveillance cameras used at commercial shopping malls, backed by security officers viewing all mall activity from a remote security monitoring center, offer the best possible protection for shoppers and retailers against shopping mall crime.
