Interface Security Systems Makes Virtual Security Guard Monitoring Affordable for Retailers of all Sizes

Company Expands its Interactive Remote Video Monitoring Services with new low-cost offering

Earth City, MO (August 25, 2020) — Interface Security Systems, a leading managed service provider delivering business security, managed network, and business intelligence solutions to distributed enterprises, today announced it is expanding its Interactive Remote Video Monitoring services with a new highly-affordable Virtual Security Guard Monitoring package ideally suited to the needs of small and mid-sized retailers and retail chains with moderate security challenges. With installation costs starting at just $2,500, retailers are now able to protect their employees, customers, and assets with the help of trained security professionals monitoring their premises with live video and two-way audio. 

With Virtual Security Guard, retailers will be able to rely on Interface’s advanced technology and trained Intervention Specialists to immediately intervene in the event of shoplifting, robberies, customer arguments, and any other emergency or potentially volatile situation.

“We are seeing increased demand from SMBs and enterprises across a range of verticals for advanced security solutions as they embrace new business models and face heightened security concerns,” said Brent Duncan, Chief Revenue Officer at Interface Security Systems.  “With our Virtual Security Guard solution, businesses can ensure employee and customer safety, reduce shrink, and lower insurance and guard costs.”

Available immediately, the new low-cost Virtual Security Guard package includes intrusion alarm monitoring, interactive live video, and two-way audio monitoring, up to eight video cameras, and one audio zone.  Every alarm will be verified with live audio and video to reduce false alarms. Retailers have the option to leverage their existing security cameras and network connectivity infrastructure to make the solution even more cost-effective and easy to implement.    

The low-cost Virtual Security Guard package gives retailers the flexibility to rapidly roll out a security solution and then graduate to a more advanced version of the service based on threat levels or to accommodate business expansion. Enhanced services include remote guard tours and virtual escort services to ensure the safety of store associates when receiving inventory or handling cash, or during store openings and closings. Scheduled and on-demand voice downs can be implemented to check in on associates and remind shoppers to follow social distancing guidelines.

Customers can also upgrade to a full suite of interactive video monitoring solutions that come with extensive video camera coverage, multiple audio zones, on-demand security escorts, and smart personal safety devices, and operational compliance audits. Retailers interested in exploring the Virtual Security Guard service can take advantage of a complimentary security risk assessment that includes a free site survey for a limited time.
