American Alarm’s featured business security system in Somerville, MA
For decades, American Alarm has been a leading provider of business security systems to the banking industry. Recently, we helped one regional bank based in Somerville with branches in Medford, Arlington, Burlington, Malden, Melrose, Woburn and Chestnut Hill, upgrade its closed circuit television (CCTV) system to a digital platform. The two biggest security issues facing banks today are robberies and check-fraud. In both cases, CCTV systems play a vital role in deterrence and in collecting evidence to support investigations if a crime occurs. As the technology has advanced, digital CCTV systems now can capture excellent quality images of all persons who approach any teller window, customer service desk, or ATM station. Working with the bank’s designated security officer, we helped our client upgrade to a digital video storage system which allows for better archiving and instant retrieval of location and date specific images.
