Pro-Vigil is conducting research to better understand the biggest physical security challenges facing businesses in 2022 – and we want your input (it won’t take longer than 2 minutes, we promise.)

Prevent Welding Machines From Walking Off Your Job Site

Welding machines come in different shapes, sizes and functionalities. But the one thing they have in common is an expensive price tag. That’s why they are a common target for thieves.

When a welding tool can bring in up to $20,000 when resold, thieves find them worth the risk. 

For example, this $10,000 welding machine was taken from Northeastern Junior College in Colorado. Thieves cut a fence, loaded the tool and drove off. Worse yet, security cameras were not set up to protect the equipment and could not capture quality images of vehicles and people involved.

Likewise, a power plant in Hawaii suffered $20,000 in losses after all of its welding machines were stolen. Officials say people posed as employees who were supposed to be working on-site.

These 2 examples alone show how essential it is to secure your business.  

Security Cameras Alone Are Not Enough 

Security cameras are a must, but they need to be positioned properly to be effective. Fences are a great way to keep unwanted people on the outside, but as the Colorado story shows us, by themselves, they aren’t enough.

The key to an effective security strategy is to combine multiple layers so nothing slips through the cracks.  

Pro-Vigil starts by placing high-quality AI-powered cameras in locations that get the best view of your property. Then a team of remote guards keeps watch over the camera feeds 24/7 so you don’t have to.

What is Remote Video Monitoring

If we see something suspicious, our virtual guards are alerted and can trigger deterrents (e.g. strobe lights, sirens, and recorded announcements) to scare intruders away, preventing 97% of crime.  

Pro-Vigil offers these innovative features to create an airtight security solution: 

  • Virtual Security Guard Services

    Our highly trained team of remote guards always monitor camera feeds, can trigger onsite deterrents and even dispatch law enforcement.

  • Audio Deterrents

    We can intimidate intruders by sounding alarms and playing recorded messages over a loudspeaker warning about getting off the property or authorities will be called.

  • Visual Deterrents

    Our team can deploy bright, flashing lights to inform intruders that they have been spotted, sending them running.

The strongest defense is equipping your business with a combination of the innovative features and solutions available today.
