Every business has vulnerable areas, but Sonitrol can help keep them safe.
Most commercial security systems cover at least relatively similar areas, whether you choose Sonitrol or another. If there’s a break-in or fire, you or the authorities will be notified, depending on which system you’ve got. And you already know that Sonitrol makes commercial systems more effective. But did you know that we offer a lot more than the basics?
Additional alerts mean even greater security for your business, and some of them probably cover areas that you hadn’t thought of. Here are four of them that can help turn an already great system into something even better. Sometimes, it really is the little things that make all the difference.
Sometimes temperature is critical to operation.
Temperature Control Guards Your Inventory
Is your business dependent on keeping a certain temperature? Restaurants can relate to that, since walk-in coolers are where a lot of valuable inventory is stored. In the tech industry, temperatures can mean the difference between expensive equipment working, or not. And those are just two, of many examples.
Temperature alerts can be added to your existing Sonitrol security system. They’re programmed to your specifications, and let you know when something isn’t right. If the temperature rises above (or dips below) what you need, you’ll get an alert in time to save your perishables or protect your equipment.
Power Outages Can Create Widespread Havoc
Ever wonder what would happen with your security system if the power went out? That can come about at any time, and it’s even more common in bad weather. If a power outage happened in the middle of the night or over a weekend, how much damage might be done to your business in the meantime? Insurance might cover some of it, but wouldn’t it be better to intervene?
Power Out Alert devices monitor your security system all day and night, every day of the year. They’re never off duty, just like our Central Station operators. If there’s an outage, a signal goes to operators, and you’re alerted in time to utilize generators or take other measures to protect your property.
Water Sensors Warn About Flooding
Flood waters can rise almost out of nowhere, causing damage that’s minimal or widespread. But that’s not the only way that commercial property can take on water. A broken sump pump can let a basement flood, even if there’s no standing water outside. But water sensors added to your security system keep you informed.
If the power goes out or a pump breaks down, rising water sends an alert. And like all other Sonitrol alerts, you get word in time to do something about it before suffering property damage or loss.
Sonitrol knows if hazardous emissions are there, even when you don’t.
Sonitrol Detects Odorless CO2
CO2 is a colorless, odorless gas that can cause nausea at least, and death at worst. Because the human eyes and nose can’t detect it, the gas can build up to the point of being dangerous before you know that anything is wrong at all. But with Sonitrol on the job, you get an alert at the first sign.
There are lots of ways that CO2 can build up, according to the EPA. If you’re using a generator during a power outage (even outdoors), or if you use gas appliances such as a water heater or furnace, you’ve got a potential source of CO2 inside. Add CO2 detection to your security system, and you’ll get an early warning about unsafe indoor conditions.
A Sonitrol commercial security system is already the best protective investment that you can make for your business. But while video and audio verification make Sonitrol top in its class, there’s a lot more that you can do. What’s more, it’s all integrated.
Your fire protection, break-in detection, and every other element that you add is configured into one comprehensive system.
