We introduced our new product, TotalGuard last week. Read our quick intro to the product here before continuing on for an in-depth look at the product. We also feature a case study where TotalGuard is installed at a CrossFit gym to showcase the product in action and how it differs from our competitors.
The Who, What, When, Where, and Why of TotalGuard
TotalGuard is a standalone, all-in-one IoT security solution for small businesses. The product features impact-activated audio detection, glass break analytics, motion detection, video verification, and wireless connectivity.
Additionally, there is the option to add a 24-hour operational hold-up (panic) button application where one or more multi-sensors can be positioned in front of store clerks or bank tellers, providing our monitoring station video verification based on an alarm from the hold-up button that’s wired to the camera.
The glass break detection feature is ideal for areas such as bank ATM’s, high merchandise areas in retail locations, and gas stations. Thermal detection and verification of human presence is great for locations that lack protection of expensive copper or remote locations with fenced perimeters.
The Sonitrol mobile app and the Sonitrol Central Station software are also included in this comprehensive product. Because of the IoT capabilities, TotalGuard is considered lightweight meaning that there are lower upfront hardware and installation costs.
Through the app, you can view video surveillance footage and remotely arm/disarm the system. Central Station communication is established via the cloud which means that there is no IT investment required from the end-user.
Many small businesses utilize DIY security solutions that are self-installed and self-monitored. TotalGuard was built with this in mind and provides what users expect from a DIY system (quick installation) as well as services that come with modern intrusion solutions (verified monitoring and responses and cloud connectivity).
Other companies who have similar products all lack an intrusion based, Central Station verified solution that does not require additional hardware or software from a third party. We are proud to have a product that provides an end to end solution only requiring interaction with Sonitrol product and services.
TotalGuard is for anyone who values:
- Visibility into your facility
- Employee safety
- Protecting your assets 24/7
