Our Sales Director Ian Watts was recently in talks with a team of innovative new security specialists.
Meeting at a business networking event a London sales manager for a property guardian firm was amazed at how easily the ‘OpenTAP‘ gateway number could be programmed into any property security alarm whether an installed or mobile system where his team were called.
Property guardians are basically authorised by a building owner to move into your property and keep it secure but not with a traditional security guard. They move their authorised registered and vetted staff in to live. Squatting with a difference these professional individuals come from all warps of life. Firemen, nurses, factory workers all struggle to find affordable housing in the centre of London so once they have passed training and detailed checks they become registered with HQ to be eligible to take on this amazing new life.
A hypothetical scenario was discussed: Day one of a contract to guard a property will entail the basics. If a property has not been occupied as a domestic dwelling i.e. an office environment then temporary wash and sanitary services will be installed. At this stage if a burglar alarm is fitted then the OpenTAP solution would prove a significant assistance by giving these new temporary residents a text on their mobile to indicate any unauthorised entry to the property. More than one mobile can be programmed on our system and so on larger offices/dwellings where more guards are in residence all receive the reassurance of an alarm set/unset text. The key to property guardians is that these are professional people with real day jobs near buy inhabiting the property to offset any risks of unauthorised occupation/vandalism.
The property guardian sales manager stated “while the lure of affordable convenient accommodation for potential Property Guards staff may be enough this added feature from ‘OpenTAP’ really gives great flexibility and added security integrity for the tough job of keeping these often prestigious buildings safe from the hands of mindless vandals.”
