Ping! You just received nine new emails. Buzz! Your neighbor just posted a video of their vacation to the Caribbean. Ding! Your second cousin twice removed just shared a photo of their dinner. Every day more than 300 billion emails are sent, 300 million photos are posted to Facebook, and more than 720,000 hours of video are uploaded on YouTube. Depending on your settings, you can know instantly when those you follow or like upload new content or your friends share something with you.
Now if you are anything like me, you hate receiving constant alerts. I can’t stand notifications, icons, social media alerts, or email pings. My phone is set to alert me when I get a phone call or a text message—that’s it. In today’s world everything is battling for our attention, and I purposefully chose to limit what has mine.
Not everything needs to be seen instantly. Not the vacation photos or music videos, nor the marketing emails. However, when it comes to your security, live alerts can be key in stopping criminal activity.
Every D3 unit from LiveView Technologies is equipped with advanced analytics and deterrents. They are made to protect your property and stop criminals before any damage is done. However, perhaps the best tool they are equipped with is live alerts which can be sent straight to your phone.
Unlike the hundreds of other alerts that you receive throughout the day, alerts from your LVT Unit are important because it means that something on your property requires your attention. You can instantly log in to your account and see what is going on no matter where you are in the world. It gives you the power to see if an employee came to work early or if there is a potential criminal crossing your property.
Live security alerts give you the power to act. LVT Units don’t just alert you so you can look in at your property. Instead, you can actually employ some of the deterrents on the unit and prevent or even stop many threats in real time. For example, you can use the two-way speaker to directly address intruders in real-time. Saying, “You in the red hat are trespassing!” carries a lot more power than an automatic, motion triggered, pre recorded message. If the intruder does not leave even after you engage multiple deterrents, you can call law enforcement.
Live alerts also help you not to act. After receiving an alert, you can see instantly if it is a false alarm. Maybe an employee forgot their purse and came back to the office. Or maybe your shipment is coming earlier than you expected. Either way when you receive the alert that someone is on your property, you can login and see within seconds if they are supposed to be there. This helps you preserve resources and not waste your time, the time of your employees, or even the time of local law enforcement.
Unlike alerts for most social media posts, emails, or other notifications, live security alerts actually help you. They help you run a more efficient business while still protecting your property.
