John Cannon had his garage secured by OnGuard Security by covering all his bay doors, pedestrian doors, motion sensors, running alarm.com. We also installed external and interior video camera set up for local recording and remote viewing. Plus a few additional surprises. John is an avid networker and member of Gold Star networking group. He recently open up a mechanic shop near 465 and Allisonville in Indianapolis, just about 5 miles south of OnGuard’s Fisher’s office.
 
OnGuard routinely uses MyCarDoc for maintenance and light repair work. His professionalism and communication is always good. Bob Trimmer, OnGuard Security Consultant, was able to work directly with John to see he was well satisfied and obtained this testimonial. Good work Bob and team.

One reason I choose to be partnered with Guardian Protection Service as an Authorized Dealer is their monitoring station is among the best I have yet to experience after working for no less than 5 different alarm companies in my 30 year career.
 

They are outstanding. I know from 1st hand experience as Guardian has been protecting my family for over 12 years and my business for 4 and half years. The response is fast. Normally about 20 seconds form trip to call, less the minimal dialer delay. The people are professional. They promote into the Central Station and pay a good wage for good people. The facility is truly ‘state of the art’. This isn’t just my opinion, it is that of the Central Station Alarm Association awarding Guardian as the 2015 Central Station of the year award by the CSAA.

Many of us know someone who is getting ready to go back to school. Let’s keep them safe!
 
Remember if your child walks to school:
 
Always walk on the sidewalk, if one is not available then walk facing the traffic. Before you cross the street, stop and look left, right and left again to see if cars are coming. Never dart out in front of a PARKED car. If your child needs to adjust that backpack, then stop in front of the house not the driveway. We are all in a rush and some drivers pull out of their driveways without looking. Practice walking to school with your child.
 
Riding the bus to school:
 
Practice going to the bus stop with your child to teach them the safety tips. Make sure your children stand six feet away (or 3 giant steps) from the curb. If your child and you need to cross the street in front of the bus, walk on the side of the
road until you are 10 feet ahead of the bus. You always should be able to see the bus driver, and the bus driver always should be able to see you.
 
After school safety, remember to talk to your children about who is allowed in the home. Determine a plan about answering the phone and door. Many times it is better to tell the doorknocker that you are busy versus remaining silent, as burglars are scanning what homes are best to break into.
 
We can help with after school safety by monitoring your alarm and using Alarm.com interactivity. Alarm.com allows you to receive email/text message notifications for any type of alarm reported by the security system. (These automated alarm alerts are in addition to and independent of the emergency response services provided by the central monitoring station.)
 
Want more protection, we install video cameras that allow you to remote access to view any concerns.

Case Study Business / Residence: Health care business
 
1. Commercial Client with existing access control and video surveillance upgrade:

• Client had 10 year access control and video surveillance system installed by ADT. The customer is interested in upgraded service and system.
 
2. What did the customer or client do about this?

• The customer contacted several security vendors to entertain quotes and proposals. They provided basic outline of needs and tour of facility. There were 4 existing analog DVR connected to approximately 50 cameras. There were 15 card readers connected to 4 x 4 door Kantech controllers operating on a older Windows server. 8 of the readers were proximity and 8 were fingerprint.

• The client chose our solution. The primary reason is that we were willing to upgrade their existing access system software and did not require them to purchase new readers, controllers, software, etc…just updated software and additional 4 exit readers. The resulted in a significant cost savings to the client as well as enabled OnGuard to do the work with less down time. During the quotation process we proposed multiple solutions which enabled the client to have greater flexibility and choice.
 
3. What did you do?

• We were fortunate that the manufacturer had a training certification class occurring while the bidding process was occurring. Because none of the other competitors were apparently offering a software upgrade and this would enable the client to save money while upgrading and meeting their requirements, it seemed like a viable opportunity to send 2 techs for certification. Thankfully the investment paid off as this one reason we apparently won the order.

• We ran into a few snags and a savings in the process. The snag was the finger print readers were not compatible with the new operating software on the server. The bonus that our techs in conjunction with the manufacture’s support realized we did not need another controller for the swipe out readers and we could interface them into the existing controllers, saving the client money. Thus the issue with the readers was offset by the saving on the controller evenly.

• The job was completing according to the allotment of time; 2 techs for 2 days, 1 tech a 3rd day.

4. What did you deliver?

• We were able to compete the job on budget and in time. The client’s IT department and director (the Specifier) was helpful and involved in the process along with the General Manager (the Authorizer).

5. Did this work?

• Time will tell how effective the upgrade will be for the client. It seems like it shall work just fine.

6. What are the measurable benefits for the customer or the client?

• The system has been upgraded and future proof for 5-10 years.

• The solution saved 50% cost verse reinstalling most of the hardware from scratch.

• Both systems we able to be installed in less time, approximately 50% reducing disruption to work flow while get up and running faster.

7. Within a b2b context, how did this impact the customer or client’s own customers?

• The client being in healthcare and will have greater controls, reports and security in regard to keeping their clients data secure and complying with heath care rules and procedures.

• The client will be able to ascertain quicker and with more certainly where their staff is and present with the use of access control and surveillance.

8. What can the customer/ client now do in terms of its own market segment that it couldn’t do before?

• The client has an easier and much better path to upgrade their security cameras a needs and budget permits the NVR / DVR connects to their existing analog cameras while allowing them to add higher resolution IP Digital cameras in the future without having to change head end equipment.

• We were also able to add better remote viewing capability including app to see cameras providing multiple uses including alarm verification, deliveries, customer service, etc.

9. What are the future opportunities for the customer/client?

• They have a platform that allow future expansion without having to replace the head end.

10. What experience and capability do you now have as a result of this work?

• We have several new experiences that will enable us in the future including Kantech Certification, Installation and dealing with some new configurations. Working with a quality IT professionals is always a growing opportunity.
