How would a robbery, fraud, flood or fire affect your business? What would a weekend-long electrical outage do to your bottom dollar? How would you feel if an employee, under your care, was injured or harmed?
These are just some of the incidents we can help protect you from by taking a proactive, rather than a reactive, approach to your business and commercial security.
We can provide complete security solutions to banks, retail outlets, service stations, medical practices, warehouses, and more. It's not just about weighing up what you have that's worth stealing. Instead, it's about protecting your resources - your assets. Every organisation has these. Your staff, your customers, your products, your intellectual property and your revenue - all of this will suffer if your business fails to identify and properly manage risk ahead of time.
Are you a small-to-medium business owner? Find out if you're paying too much for your business alarm monitoring.
You turn the key. Enter the building. Head to switch the lights on. But nothing happens. Suddenly, you realise your business has been without power for two days. The fridges have been off all weekend. All stored produce is lost. Wasted.
You resign yourself to the fact there'll be no trading today.
Instead, you'll spend the next few hours embroiled in lengthy phone calls with the electrical company and insurer.
It's a loss that could have been avoided.
Because we take a customised and complete approach to the idea of security, Calamity can help protect your business outside the realm of traditional surveillance solutions.
Flooding, smoke, electrical outages, temperatures and more can all be monitored so immediate action can be taken before you suffer loss.
It's all about internal and external security solutions.
Low-or-zero light cameras, smoke and temperature control, remote environmental control, noise control and physical security can all be integrated into a 24/7 commercial security solution that helps you focus on running your business rather than worrying about it.
Our commercial security solutions are exhaustive. They need to be. We've figured out how to comprehensively safeguard businesses from potential risks by taking a bespoke approach to each new client. So whether you're a medical centre, a retail store, a café, a funeral home, a vet practice, a gym, a school or a government department we're able to provide you with a security solution protecting you, your staff, your customers and your building physically, while also protecting your profits.
Silent Sentinel provides employee safety and helps you meet workplace health and safety (WHS) obligations, particularly for lone workers.
Silent Sentinel is a sophisticated, easily concealed, piece of equipment worn on the body providing protection, even when staff may have lost the ability to protect themselves.
In addition to making contact with our 24/7 monitoring centre at the touch of a button, Silent Sentinel automatically senses the force of a fall adding greater security for those at risk. Designed with automatic fall detection technology, Silent Sentinel will alert Calamity of an incident, allowing our operators to make contact with the wearer and to call the appropriate emergency services as required.
This new technology makes it even easier for you to protect staff that are on the move or engaged in activity where accident, injury or assault could happen.
It's heavy-duty, so it can withstand falls. But it's also lightweight, so it can be easily worn at all times. An ultra-powered speakerphone and audio capabilities means operators can communicate and assess a situation even if the pendant has been triggered and then left in another room.
Tradesmen and electricians may offer to install a security system despite not being licensed to do so, either individually or as a company.
This means you're never confident your business is properly protected. It also means, because an ungraded provider has installed your security system, the police can decline requests for assistance and insurers may attempt to reject claims - all because your alarm system didn't come up to scratch.
Your commercial alarm system should be programmed to send arm and disarm signals allowing you to prove to an insurer or the police that your alarm system was correctly armed. Unlike alarms offered by competing companies, our IP Monitoring systems can send all of these signals without racking up massive phone bills and other hidden costs. We can also notify you if someone forgets to arm or disarm and even give you smartphone control of your own system. No more driving back to the office when an employee forgets to arm the system, or risking an unprotected stockroom.
Conveniently, for businesses, you can also keep an eye on staff and cleaner comings and going by way of a regular emailed report.
Not all alarm systems are created equal. Many security firms only connect their alarm system monitoring via your phone line. So while the monitoring service seems inexpensive, because you're logging 10 or 20 phone calls each week the overall costs quickly start to add up.
Worst of all? Your phone line can simply be cut rendering your entire security system useless.
Rather than costly and easily cut phone lines, Calamity suggests IP Monitoring systems. These allow your business' nexus of alarm and camera systems to communicate with Calamity's A graded monitoring centre via a robust combination of your internet connection and several mobile networks.
Because you've got IP monitoring your business can keep its routine controls and maintain security even if phone lines are sabotaged or failed. No call charges or line rental needed.
The highway between security, technology and enterprise is quickly expanding. Calamity can help you achieve a return on security investment when it comes to your security system by integrating these three core parts of any business model.
Modern IP-connected security systems can be coordinated with smartphone apps and online monitoring, so you can control your business environment from anywhere in the world.
We also help businesses combine data gathered from their security system with their business growth and development plans. A Calamity security solution can help business owners track customer behaviour, create site heatmaps, monitor staff compliance, locate staff on the floor and generally help grow your business.
