How EGD Outsmarts Criminals And The Competition


So many companies today put all their eggs in one basket. While it’s great to excel in one area, the overall value of your company to customers is diminished when you lack an overall outstanding experience.

At Electric Guard Dog, we noticed that this was a big problem in our industry, so we charted a different course: rather than sharpening just one facet of our business, we decided the most valuable approach for our customers would be to offer an extremely well-rounded experience. How did we do this? We developed an incredibly effective product and backed it with industry-leading service.


It All Starts with Our Unparalleled Product

When you work with us, you’re getting a tried-and-true product. But, we know you’re smarter than to just take our word for it. We encourage you to read what some of our customers have said about their Electric Guard Dog system.

Our security system differs from others in several ways, beginning with its seven integrated layers:

1. An intimidating fence featuring multilingual warning sites promising of an unpleasant shock

2. An intense but non-lethal 7,000-volt jolt for criminals who dare to test the system anyway

3. A blaring alarm and an alert to our monitoring center if your system is interfered with

4. Sophisticated motion detectors and door contacts to prevent intrusion into your building

5. Access to 24/7 wireless monitoring of your property to verify any alarms

6. 24/7 alarm verification by our trained staff

 

7.  Trained EGD officers available at all times to respond to and investigate any alarms

 


As great as all that is, there’s still more to say about our system. It’s solar-powered, meaning low energy costs for you, as well as protection from criminals who try to gain access to your site after cutting your power. Our system is extremely durable, even withstanding severe weather: Two of our largest customers, with 15 combined sites,
reported no outages as Hurricane Sandy ravaged their area. We’re also mindful of your property, so we make sure our system protects your paving. Additionally, our system is meant to play well with others, so it’s VIA (virtual integrated access) friendly.

 

Our Service Keeps Customers Renewing Each Year

While we’re very proud of our product, it wouldn’t be as valuable if it wasn’t backed by the impeccable service received by every Electric Guard Dog customer. Our service agreement is unconventional, but most of our customers happily renew their contracts after each year of protection. Think of our system as your business’ most important monthly subscription. When you work with us, we handle every aspect of installation, at no cost to you. We also service your system for free whenever necessary, regardless of the cause.

Furthermore, in the exceedingly rare event that something would happen to someone as a result of your system, you’re indemnified against litigation and covered by additional insurance. All the responsibility and liability for the fence are on our end, ensuring total peace of mind throughout the long life of your fence. Moreover, no need to undergo the frustrating process of seeking compliance with your local municipality: we have a skilled team dedicated to handling this.

Should you need to reach us, we make this as easy as possible. You’ll have just one point of contact throughout the installation process, giving you a specific person you can contact whenever necessary. Once your system is up and running, our customer support line is ready to field any calls. And if you require emergency assistance, don’t worry: we also have a 24/7 troubleshooting line. Once you’ve decided Electric Guard Dog is the right fit for your company, we pay for FedEx to deliver and unload the parts for your system, so there’s no work necessary on your end. If you encounter any issues with your system at any time, our dedicated team will quickly assess the claim and solve the problem.

 

We know it can be difficult to decide which form of security is best for your business. Many other security providers claim to offer superior protection, but there are many glaring holes upon deeper inspection.

Alarm Systems

It’s true that an alarm system that sounds when an unauthorized person enters a property can sometimes scare them off. But shouldn’t your focus be on not letting them gain access in the first place? Plenty of criminals will happily plunder your site for as long as they can before fleeing as law enforcement arrives. Often, law enforcement doesn’t prioritize security alarms. One major city’s average police response time to security alarms was 45 minutes.

security guards

Having an actual person on site at all times sounds like the perfect security solution, right? This is actually far from the case. Security guards are extremely expensive: our average-size customer who switches from a 24/7 security guard to EGD saves $120,000 each year. Furthermore, security guards may be negligent, or worse, complicit in ripping off your business.

guard dogs

An earlier iteration of this company actually used guard dogs to ward off thieves and property criminals, so we’re familiar with the associated pitfalls. While menacing dogs can seem like a powerful deterrent to bad guys, those who want to access your site badly enough will sadly find many ways to silence your dogs. Guard dogs additionally pose a major liability if they happen to injure someone.

video cameras

Video cameras can be useful, but typically only after you’ve been rocked by theft. Even then, the quality is often so poor that the criminals are untraceable and get away scot-free with your valuable property.

Other integrated security providers

Other companies that offer a similar service to ours just can’t compete with our seven layers of security. Our service is crafted specifically for the industries we know best, while competitors can’t match our expertise that comes with specialization. Here’s a list of industries for which an Electric Guard Dog system is the ideal security solution!

 

OUR industry-leading combination

Through our unique offerings of a powerfully effective security system and top-notch customer service, we’ve made a name for ourselves in our 27 years of protecting people and property. In the continental U.S. and need site security? We can help! We have a nationwide support network and install capacity, so there’s no need to settle for less than the best. We’re proud to report that our system protects more than 4,000 sites. At this point, maybe you’re wondering if our system is actually as strong as we’re claiming. That’s a fair question, and we have the data to back it up. Independent surveys have found that a full 98% of Electric Guard Dog customers completely eliminated theft following the installation of our system.
