Other security companies record criminal activity, NETWATCH PREVENTS IT.
Traditional CCTV systems do not prevent crime, they simply record it. Netwatch intervenes before a crime is committed by visually detecting and then deterring intruders with live, personalized audio warnings.
Many Utility sites, like substations — which are inherently vulnerable as they are often in open, remote locations — are prone to break-ins, vandalism, theft, sabotage and even terrorist threats these days. For liability, the NERC/FERC regulations and even copper wire theft reasons, it is important to prevent trespassers from entering these sites. However, CCTV cannot do this and security guards typically have such large geographical areas to cover they aren’t able to respond immediately to incidents. In contrast, Netwatch visually detects suspicious activity, deters the individuals with live, personalized audio warnings and calls in law enforcement.
Netwatch Managed Service is a true turn-key solution whereby every aspect of the system – which utilizes state-of-the-art hardware and advanced-grade proprietary software – is owned, installed, maintained and monitored by Netwatch for a fixed daily fee. There are no surprise fees or large upfront capital expenditures, nor do you need to hire specialized personnel, maintain hardware or manage software upgrades.
