Envera Systems Wins 2017 FLCAJ Readers’ Choice Award for Safety and Security

We are proud to announce that Envera Systems won the 2017 Florida Community Association Journal Diamond Readers’ Choice Award for Safety and Security. 

We are appreciative of the FLCAJ and its readers for recognizing us as an industry-leading community security provider.

Below is an excerpt of how the award winners are selected by the readers of the Florida Community Association Journal.

 

Not every service provider chooses to do business with community associations. It takes a special commitment to learn, not only their own industry, but the industry they serve. They are willing to take the extra step to work with boards, committees, managers, and others that might be in the loop to the satisfaction of all concerned. Welcome to the third year of recognition for Readers’ Choice Awards. We were pleased that there were more than 260 nominations, 5,400 votes cast, and 92 service three levels of recognition.

This success is a testament to the guards that work in our central command center, the innovative technologists that keep us at the forefront of security solutions, and the communities that entrust us with their safety and security every day.

Frequently Asked Questions: Video Surveillance – FLCAJ

Brie Peterson, Business Development Consultant for Envera Systems, has completed her most recent installment of her Security Q&A column in the April issue of Florida Community Association Journal.

This Q&A will focus on a variety of security questions and be featured in the magazine every other month. Here is her content for this issue:

What is the Difference between Proactive and Reactive Video Surveillance?

Camera surveillance is one of the most widely used practices in security. Closed-circuit television, or CCTV, is commonly used to deter crimes, capture information in case of an incident and provide evidence when necessary. Today, these camera systems have become more proactive as opposed to reactive. So, what’s the difference between a passive and an active surveillance camera system, and how do you know when to use the right one?

A camera system that is classified as passive continuously records an area. If an incident occurs, that information is captured, and it can be recalled and sorted through. It is the right asset for certain areas of a community. For instance, if a community’s entrance is not gated, a passive surveillance system can record the entrance area in case of an incident. In addition, some passive cameras can capture license plates so that vehicle owner information can be collected if there is an issue at the entrance.

While a passive surveillance system is effective for watching over an area as well as being a deterrent for crimes, it is also a reactive system. If the sight of the cameras does not stop trespassers, the community will often find the damage after it has already been done. For example, at a community pool, the furniture may be broken or thrown around. When possible, it is better to try to stop vandalism from happening in certain areas of a community with a preventative solution.

Below is a testimonial from Eric Vantassel, Technician, Southern Comfort One Hour Air Conditioning

I’m going in and out of communities every day, and typically when it’s a guard situation, it’s a longer process to get in. Whereas, when it’s Envera Systems, it’s quick. As soon as I pull up, I’m verified, and I get into the community a lot faster. Being that getting in and out of communities is an important aspect of my job, I do prefer it. Plus, I think there is definitely an advantage on the security side.

These are the success stories Envera Systems can produce for your community.

Do you wish to share your community’s experience?  If so, we’d love to hear from you!
