Two-Way Digital Radios Increase Security
Security is an ever-growing industry, with an estimated expected growth rate of 6% between 2016 and 2026. Security is everywhere, and a multitude of industries could benefit from utilizing two-way radios to amp up their security.
- Malls and shopping centers
- Event and concerts
- Sporting events
- Amusement parks
- Banks and financial institutions
- Government buildings
- Schools and Universities
The list can go on forever. Two-way radios allow for sophisticated communication and the ability to identify potentially dangerous situations and neutralize a danger or threat before the situation escalates.
Keep Everyone Safe
Safety is the number one priority of security guards everywhere. How can they do that if they do not have the proper means of communication? We live in a world where anything can happen, both good and bad. The best way we can protect ourselves and community members is by always anticipating and expecting the unexpected.
Our MOTOROLA radios are top of the line, military grade, and strong enough for any security team. Along with an increased need for security and security guards, comes with the increased need for proper communication tools. Two-way radios allow for fast response times, discreet conversations, and even short text messages to be sent between security guards. Don’t be caught off guard when an emergency or dangerous situation strikes, and be prepared to keep civilians out of harm’s way with instant communication. When it comes to communication, a delay in response of even a minute can make a difference between life and death.
Perfect For Any Security Team
Whether you run a small hotel chain, or are in charge of supplying security for huge sporting events, two-way radios are there when you need them. They are distraction free, reliable when cell phones are not, fast and efficient 24/7. There are radio rentals available for any size security team in any industry. Two-way radios are easy to use and customizable depending on how many individuals need to be equipped with a radio.
There is also a lone worker function of two-way radios, that allow management to check in with security members. For example, management can send an alert to a security member, and the security member will need to press the push-to-talk button. This will tell management that the individual is alert and in a safe location. If the team member were to fail to push the button then this sends an alert.
The biggest threat to security is not being able to easily communicate with other security personnel. For example, hospitals and many hotels tend to have a lot of dead zones or dead spots within them. You probably have gone to the hospital once or twice and noticed that you had absolutely zero cellular coverage. This presents a huge threat to security. With two-way radios, not only do you have consistent coverage, but you have long lasting batteries and even backup batteries.
Cell phones are not reliable when it comes to natural disasters, a telephone pole that goes down, or a power outage. If a city wide power outage strikes, how will security measures continue with systems down and no communication? This is why two-way radios are of the utmost importance.
The beauty of two-way radios is the ability to have a group chat without the need of a cell phone. How so? Two-way radios have a multi-channel feature that lets you organize and group together various members depending upon their position and who you need to be connected to. You can also connect with every member at once and alert them of a situation.
Two-way radios also have a GPS tracking feature, so that management can keep track of everyone’s whereabouts at all times. This can prove extremely helpful in case of an emergency where all personnel need to be accounted for.
Security cannot keep an area secure without the proper means of doing so. An emergency, by definition, is a serious and unexpected situation that requires immediate action. You can’t expect the unexpected if you aren’t prepared for it to happen to begin with. If you run a team, or are looking for a little extra security for your small business, two-way radios are your answer. Your staff will thank you, and so will your customers or clients.
