In response to COVID-19, Alert 360, one of the nation’s largest providers of home and business security and automation, announced precautions it is taking to provide uninterrupted service to its customers, following CDC guidelines – along with a new, “Limited Touch” security package. The company is taking the following steps to ensure the safety of its customers during security consultations, service and installations. Alert 360 technicians, installers, and security consultants will:
Perform remote security reviews via phone or video conference
Utilize electronic paperwork, contracts and signatures
Maintain a 6-foot distance with anyone at the property
Disinfect tablets and phones before and after every visit
Limit conversations to system, service or installation subjects only
Have and use hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes
Pre-disinfect all equipment
Wipe down and sanitize door handles and/or anything touched at the home or business
The company also has introduced a new, “Limited Touch” security package that provides top-rated security and home automation along with a free garage door controller, which enables a customer to remotely open or close a garage door. With “Limited Touch,” Alert 360 sales professionals will perform a detailed security review with customers via telephone or tablet, look at satellite imaging of the home or business to determine security vulnerabilities and sensor placement, and utilize electronic paperwork for all customer onboarding.
“Now, more than ever, we are here to ensure the safety and security of those we help protect,” said Richard Ginsburg, president and CEO, Alert 360. “During this time, our customers have asked for a robust, easy-to-use system, including a safer consultation and installation. By offering a new, Limited-Touch security package and approach to security sales, installs, and service, we plan to continue providing valuable security to home and business owners. This new package provides state-of-the-art security, with the added convenience of a remote garage door controller to assist customers with safer delivery and access options. For more than 45 years, our customers’ safety has been our top priority, and we will continue to focus on that as we navigate these unique times.”
Alert 360 operates branches and offices across the country as well as a company-owned, 24/7 alarm monitoring center in Tulsa, Okla. In addition to its residential customers, its commercial security clients include essential businesses, such as healthcare facilities, oil and gas, restaurants, retail and more. To ensure Alert 360 can continue critical security services for homes and businesses, the company’s Business Continuity Plan also includes measures to keep its employees safe, including:
Limiting non-critical travel for Alert 360 employees
Ensuring employees have and use proper sanitizing products to protect customers and themselves
Establishing remote work procedures, where available
Taking the temperature of employees prior to shifts
Separating its workforce to minimize risk of exposure
“As an essential services provider, the dedicated Alert 360 team across America is manning our workstations or behind the wheel of our national fleet,” said Ginsburg. “Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by this pandemic, and we offer immense thanks to all first responders, healthcare providers, truckers, childcare providers, sanitation personnel, grocery and pharmacy workers and everyone still providing support through this.”
Alert 360 also encouraged customers to be aware that some companies are taking advantage of this time, trying to gain access to alarm customers’ properties, security systems, or bank accounts. Alert 360 asks its customers to keep in mind:
Alert 360 will not come to your home or business without your request or an appointment
Customers should call Alert 360 if someone attempts to access their security system
Many Alert 360 systems include a medical/panic alert on the keypad if customers require medical help 24/7
