Since opening its doors in 2007, Envera Systems has grown the concept of remotely located security guards, into the most efficient solution to preventing trespassers and vandals.
With spring around the corner, afterhours trespassing and vandalism, especially in pool areas, is expected to rise. Envera stresses that communities take action to prevent trespassers from entering pool and other recreational areas.
Tom Swain, Envera’s vice president, warns “it’s not only destruction of property and disturbing the neighborhood, but it’s dangerous for these kids. If they jump in the pool at night and start drowning, no one’s there to save them. The community could even be held legally responsible.”
Envera suggest homeowner and condo associations prevent trespassing by actively securing the pool and other recreational areas. The most affective and inexpensive way is with active video surveillance.
Active video surveillance utilizes high-resolution digital cameras equipped with video analytics to automatically differentiate between trespassers and inanimate objects. The video feed is transmitted over a secure Internet connection to the Envera central station, where state licensed virtual guards watch in real time. If a trespasser breaches the perimeter, the guard uses two-way audio to voice down to the trespasser demanding they leave. If the trespasser refuses, the guard contacts local authorities.
“We used to have a problem with kids sneaking in and throwing chairs in the water and causing trouble, but since Envera started watching the pool area we haven’t had any issues over the past couple of years,” says a resident of an Envera protected community.
Envera Systems, industry leader in outdoor asset protection, currently secures hundreds of gate points and access control entry points, as well as amenities such as clubhouses, pools, and parks.
