Move from a reactive based security system to proactive security systems with intelligent sensors and alert based monitoring. Using various sensors such as PIR sensors, motion-based sensors, thermal sensors, contact sensors, smoke sensors etc an alert is generated and sent to the central monitoring station. The security executive at the monitoring station will address the alert. The site becomes live and he can see the activity at the premises. If this is a false alarm, he will close the alert immediately; else he will activate two-way audio device and scare the burglar away with strong audio command. Simultaneously, based on the escalation matrix, the appropriate action will be taken by another security executive such as calling security force or the manager of the store.
