Interface Security Systems, a managed service provider delivering business security, managed network, voice services, and business intelligence solutions to distributed enterprises, today announced it is expanding its Interactive Remote Video Monitoring services with a new highly-affordable Virtual Security Guard Monitoring package ideally suited to the needs of restaurant chains and QSRs. With installation costs starting at just $2,500, restaurants are now able to protect their employees, customers, and assets with the help of trained security professionals monitoring their premises with live video and two-way audio.
QSRs can quickly see an ROI on security services. For example, Panda Express dramatically decrease shrink and resolve security inadequacies and is saving $100,000 in false alarm fees.
With Virtual Security Guard, restaurants and QSRs will be able to rely on Interface’s advanced technology and trained Intervention Specialists to immediately intervene in the event of robberies, customer arguments, and any other emergency or potentially volatile situation.
As restaurants reinvent their business models with curbside pickups and home delivery and put in place stringent hygiene protocols, Interface is offering a combination of remote monitoring with virtual guard services, video verified alarm and integrated POS exception reporting to deliver discreet yet effective security and monitoring solutions that inspire confidence among associates and patrons alike.
Available immediately, the new Virtual Security Guard package includes intrusion alarm monitoring, interactive live video and two-way audio monitoring, up to eight video cameras, and one audio zone. Every alarm will be verified with live audio and video to reduce false alarms. Restaurant chains and QSRs have the option to leverage their existing security cameras and network connectivity infrastructure to make the solution even more cost-effective and easy to implement.
The Virtual Security Guard package gives customers the flexibility to rapidly roll out a security solution and then graduate to a more advanced version of the service based on threat levels or to accommodate business expansion. Enhanced services include remote guard tours and virtual escort services to ensure the safety of associates when receiving inventory or handling cash, or during openings and closings.
Customers can also upgrade to a full suite of interactive video monitoring solutions that come with extensive video camera coverage, multiple audio zones, on-demand security escorts, and smart personal safety devices, and operational compliance audits. Restaurant chains and QSRs interested in exploring the Virtual Security Guard service can take advantage of a complimentary security risk assessment that includes a free site survey for a limited time.
