Fast Installations and Upgrades

Don’t worry about the installation. Pro-Vigil’s culture is built on giving you the best service the first time. Your territory manager will survey your site and find any vulnerable security gaps through satellite imagery.

He or she will make a custom security layout for whatever kind of business you have. Your cutting-edge wireless cameras will be in place in five days or less, with no extra work or management needed on your part.

We can also upgrade any security setup you already have. The latest cameras can pick out fine details that are lost on older models. Enhanced resolution means better threat detection and more accurate reporting. We can also improve your system with remote human monitoring, automatic object tracking, an interactive mobile app, and more.

An optional upgrade is analytics reporting. Software automatically compiles data on peak shopping hours, people counts, and customer demographics. You can also get reports on time and attendance, risk mitigation data, package delivery, and more.

Your Chicago, Illinois security system will also give you:

  • Two weeks of cloud-based surveillance recordings
  • Access to live video feeds on your web-enabled devices
  • A mobile app with options to control your system and communicate with Pro-Vigil

Detection of and Response to Other Disasters

Because we at Pro-Vigil want you to succeed, we scan 24/7 for any kind of threat to your business—fires, floods, freak accidents, storms, and more. We’ll call Chicago’s emergency services within minutes and inform your management team of the situation. We’ll also warn any employees inside.

To prevent accidents, we can detect when employees are not using the best safety guidelines and practices. Then, a safety refresher course or individualized training can improve employee habits. Similarly, your surveillance can detect when machines and equipment are starting to break down.

Three Chicago Business Examples

We can protect any type of business: car lots, power plants, junkyards, cell phone towers, temporary real estate work sites, and many more. The three examples below illustrate Pro-Vigil’s Chicago, Illinois security capabilities.

Motor Vehicle Dealerships

The FBI found that Chicago, Illinois crime includes one of the highest levels of motor vehicle theft in the U.S. Thieves can get a lot of money for each vehicle. Vehicles are parked in the open and thieves can hotwire them and drive away. Plus, vandals and arsonists can do a lot of damage without stealing anything.

Pro-Vigil can protect vehicle sellers using:

  • Specialized vehicle monitoring software, which tracks license plate numbers
  • Crime deterrents, such as alarms and strobe lights, which are 93% effective
  • After-hours audio greetings for legitimate customers
  • Video recordings of slips and falls and other incidents
  • Live feeds to monitor damaging weather conditions

Construction Sites

Thieves target real estate developments for new appliances, furniture, and materials. Some others break in to sleep there for a night but cause expensive and dangerous damage.

The temporary nature of this workplace can make it seem difficult to protect. Fences, gates, and guards won’t keep out determined criminals. Even well-paid guards can only watch one area at a time—when they’re able to concentrate in the middle of the night.

Guards are also vulnerable to attack from violent criminals. So, to protect your site and your employees from Chicago, Illinois crime, Pro-Vigil can:

  • Deliver all your security needs for a single monthly payment that’s less than paying a guard
  • Monitor multiple, strategically-placed video cameras 24/7 with a live, remote guard and software
  • Retain highly detailed recordings of any incidents that occur, stored off-site
  • Keep your security system running without a connection to the grid using batteries and solar power

Apartment Buildings and Complexes

The single most common type of housing in Chicago is apartments, but they’re vulnerable to burglary and fire, putting your equipment and structures at risk.

To combat Chicago, Illinois crime and accidents in apartments, Pro-Vigil’s system offers these services:

  • Tracking any unusual visitors inside and around your buildings to deter criminal activity before it occurs
  • Detecting fires as soon as they start and bringing in the Chicago Fire Department within minutes
  • Monitoring the use of your common room equipment and guarding access to it
  • Keeping video records of any incident that you’ll need later
