Force Security Awarded Mobotix’s Global Excellence Award

Langmeil, Germany – Just recently, as the year grew to an end, Force Security was invited overseas to Germany to visit the Mobotix headquarters for a Global Partner Conference. We were incredibly honored with the invitation, and even more honored to be invited to speak on behalf of the Americas as to what it means to be a Mobotix partner and to have the opportunity to showcase some of the unique integration that we have done with the Mobotix platform. 

One of the major integrations that we’ve created as part of our relationship with Mobotix is Force Watch, a proactive monitoring solution that allows us to use not only video verification, plus the 2-way audio functionality within the camera, as a way to allow our monitoring center to call into the camera to proactively respond to alarm events such as a break-in. Similar to a telephone, our monitoring center can visually and verbally challenge an intruder in real time. “The look on a would-be burglar’s face when asked to identify themselves from a loudspeaker in the middle of the night is quite powerful. A lot of the time that’s all it takes to mitigate the risk and send them running out the door.” said Ken Kocher, President of Force Security.

 

Another the event that occurred at this conference was an Awards Ceremony that took place on the final evening of the event, Force Security was awarded Mobotix Global Excellence Award- a tremendous honor after being named the Partner of the Year in 2016. Force Security and Mobotix have been working together for nearly a decade. The partnership is something that we’ve seen grow and flourish over that time as both companies have found greater and greater success. We look forward to what the future holds as Mobotix continues to make great strides in technologically and Force continues to provide the highest level of protection, security, and stability of our customers in the greater D.C. area and beyond.

Force Security Hosts a Luncheon for Property Managers Downtown

Force Security Hosts a Luncheon for Property Managers Downtown

Washington, DC – Force Security was invited to host a luncheon for over 35 Property Managers in DC last week as part of a monthly lunch and learn event.  The lunch was held at Station Kitchen & Cocktails nestled amongst the historic internationally-inspired architecture of the surrounding embassy buildings. As property managers from locations all around the District began to arrive and catch up with one another, we ran into a couple familiar faces that we already service, and have a great relationship with, here at Force Security.

Ken Kocher, Force Security’s President, began his presentation with one goal: To educate. Not only about the technologies and products that Force Security offers our clients, but more importantly on the idea that technology takes a back seat to policy and procedure. What that means is: In order for the technology (The IP Cameras, The Intrusion Security Servers, Access Control Systems, etc.) that Force installs to be successful, a company must first have the proper policies and procedures in place so that they know how to handle emergency events that may occur at their buildings.

“You’d be amazed at how many property managers never think about the best practices and how to handle emergency types of situations until after an emergency has occurred … even with all that is happening in the news recently,” Ken said. “Especially here in the Nation’s Capital.” The murmur of the tables that followed these statements signified Ken’s words. It’s the unfortunate reality that business owners and property managers get wrapped up in the wrong idea of ‘I have all the right pieces’. Add that along with so many security providers who fail to properly instruct a businesses and their employees on how to implement procedures in case of an event and you get an opportunity for disaster. The beauty of having all of these property managers in one space is that they could talk and bounce experiences off of one another. How they handled it. What the result was. It was healthy for everyone to hear and learn from each other.

“We strongly encourage interaction among neighbors,” Ken answered when asked about how to be more proactive in regards to security. “It’s funny that with all of the ways we can now communicate with people all around the world so easily, so many people fail to communicate about whats happening next door to them. Having a network of local property managers just to bounce experiences off of is paramount to keeping you, your tenets, employees, and your assets safer.”

luncheonHere at Force, we offer a ‘Plan to Stay in Business Seminar’ free to all. We host a small presentation that walks through a several different possible scenarios that other businesses have experienced and how to appropriately handle them in case they take place at your facility. It’s a great opportunity to set a foundation for the policies and procedures you need at your location. It’s an integral part of how our business works to keep you in business.

Winter is Coming: The affects of cold weather and your security systems

Winter is Coming: The affects of cold weather and your security systems

This weekend is forecasting for another ‘blizzard’ in the DC area. The grocery stores are quickly running out of supplies and the counties are even closing down schools days early in anticipation and fear of potential inclement weather. We all know the cold can wreak havoc on your joints (mainly from shoveling your driveway 4 times) but it can also adversely affect your security systems.

winteriscoming

Luckily, all equipment that we install is rated to handle the harsh conditions. Even the cameras that we install have a device at the summit of Mt. Everest! That being said, there’s still a potential for anomalies.

Here are some steps you can take to better secure your business before this very cold weekend approaches:

  1. Cold weather causes metal to contract. Especially as we reach lows in the 10°’s and 20°’s in the coming nights. Make sure all exterior and monitored doors are closed properly before turning on your alarms in the evening. The freezing temperatures can cause the moving parts of door latches to stick in place and require a little extra ‘motivation’ to allow a door to close. We recommend applying a small amount of lithium grease to anything not sliding into place properly.
  2. Battery life can be drastically shortened because of cold weather in any wireless devices. If an odd window sensor goes off with no sign of intrusion, this could be a direct result. Don’t panic in case of accidental alarm. Just let us know as soon as possible so we can schedule a service technician to come replace it.
  3. Lastly, there’s the cold transition to hot. Just as condensation forms on a pair of glasses as you go from outside while it’s snowing to inside where it’s warm, the same thing happens within your electronics. So, especially if you monitor your system from your phone or laptop, don’t leave them in your car overnight and then move them inside. The condensation internally on those devices can cause a short and render them useless.

El Niño may have sheltered itself for a while, but brace yourself, because winter is coming.

 

If you feel as though your current security doesn’t have the capacity to stand up to the winter and you want confidence in your security systems, give us a call at 703.286.7205 or email info@forcesecurity.com
