Interface Security Systems, a leading managed service provider delivering business security, managed network, voice services, and business intelligence solutions to distributed enterprises, today announced it is expanding its Interactive Remote Video Monitoring services with a new highly-affordable Virtual Security Guard Monitoring package ideally suited to the needs of restaurant chains and quick-service restaurants. With installation costs starting at just $2,500, restaurants are now able to protect their employees, customers, and assets with the help of trained security professionals monitoring their premises with live video and two-way audio.

With Virtual Security Guard, restaurants and quick-service restaurants will be able to rely on Interface’s advanced technology and trained Intervention Specialists to immediately intervene in the event of robberies, customer arguments, and any other emergency or potentially volatile situation.

As restaurants reinvent their business models with curbside pickups and home delivery and put in place stringent hygiene protocols, Interface is offering a combination of remote monitoring with virtual guard services, video verified alarm and integrated POS exception reporting to deliver discreet yet effective security and monitoring solutions that inspire confidence among associates and patrons alike.

“We are seeing increased demand from SMBs and enterprises across a range of verticals for advanced security solutions as they embrace new business models and face heightened security concerns,” says Brent Duncan, Chief Revenue Officer at Interface Security Systems. “With our Virtual Security Guard solution, businesses can ensure employee and customer safety, reduce shrink, and lower insurance and guard costs.”

Available immediately, the new low-cost Virtual Security Guard package includes intrusion alarm monitoring, interactive live video and two-way audio monitoring, up to eight video cameras, and one audio zone. Every alarm will be verified with live audio and video to reduce false alarms. Restaurant chains and quick-service restaurants have the option to leverage their existing security cameras and network connectivity infrastructure to make the solution even more cost-effective and easy to implement.

The low-cost Virtual Security Guard package gives customers the flexibility to rapidly roll out a security solution and then graduate to a more advanced version of the service based on threat levels or to accommodate business expansion. Enhanced services include remote guard tours and virtual escort services to ensure the safety of associates when receiving inventory or handling cash, or during openings and closings.

Customers can also upgrade to a full suite of interactive video monitoring solutions that come with extensive video camera coverage, multiple audio zones, on-demand security escorts, and smart personal safety devices, and operational compliance audits. Restaurant chains and quick-service restaurants interested in exploring the Virtual Security Guard service can take advantage of a complimentary security risk assessment that includes a free site survey for a limited time.
