How Technology Adds Extra Security Protection

Written by:


A customer collapses and needs emergency medical assistance. A gun-wielding man is threatening a woman in her apartment. A shoplifter is trying to flee the store. Rioters are destroying downtown properties.

Signal officers successfully intervened in all these security incidents. Fortunately, in the stress of the moment, each Signal officer relied on our custom-designed technology to save lives and save resources and time. On the cutting edge of Cloud-based software, Signal Edge is the core foundation of how we provide protection and peace of mind to those we serve.

Quick 24-7 Access

Our proprietary technology allows clients real-time access to activities and reports to foster transparency and accountability of the contracted services. If we promise we’ll patrol your property every hour, you can check the user-friendly Signal Edge dashboard to see if we’ve fulfilled our commitment to you.

If your property or inventory needs extra surveillance or documentation during our patrols, Signal Edge allows our officers to take and upload photographs and videos. Did we correctly scan access badges and approve entry and exit of all vehicles and persons? Simply log in to your individual Signal Edge account to be sure.

With the Signal Edge seamless online technology, there’s no longer a need for handwritten reports and bulky paperwork. Just a quick swipe of your mobile device or tap of your keyboard and you’ll gain instant access to all the details you need.
