Protecting is what we do, but where we truly shine is with our support and service, with 24/7/365 LOCAL support.
No call centers. No overseas troubleshooting.
Standard security devices, ramped up to the ASTRA standard. Our sensors are rated at 4x strength/range of other common industry brands, using PowerG technology built to block outside interference. Our lineup of devices gives your business ultimate security. We utilize door sensors, glass breaks, motion detectors, etc to ensure full protection.
Our system tracks each time a device triggers, providing you a complete timeline of activity even while disarmed. This can be used simply to check for abnormalities, or even monitor specific areas of your business. All of this information is stored in the Astra app.
Varying industries have varying needs, such as monitoring temperatures of controlled areas, flood sensors for leaks/spills, all the way to smart thermostats for better energy regulation. Our lineup of supplementary devices go beyond a basic security system, giving you full awareness of your entire operation.
Every single day, we run system checks for all clients to ensure everything is working as intended. We strive to resolve hiccups quickly, often notifying you before you are even aware something is amiss. If we detect any issues with your system, we will give you a call same-day to resolve it.
Our system keeps an extensive log of sensor activity and actions, putting valuable information at your fingertips everyday. If somebody opens the safe, you can get a timestamped notification in real-time. Use in combination with one of our camera options for even more features and functions!
World-class monitoring services establish 24/7 protection of your business. Our 5-Diamond rating puts safety and consistency above all, giving you every ounce of confidence in our systems. Along with our team of experts, this tandem protects your business from any type of threat or intrusion.
Most of our wireless sensors have a battery life of 3-5 years, allowing for hassle free maintenance. If we get a low battery alert on any part of your system, we will notify you and ship a replacement battery directly to you at-cost! If you opt into inspections, we will come out and do it for you every few years.
At 4x the strength of standard security sensors, our devices are sophisticated and reliable enough for use in any environment. With up to a quarter mile open signal range, poor reliability is a concern of the past. All of our sensors use a secure encryption protocol to that acts as an extra layer of protection from outside threats.
Privacy is important to us, which is why we have very limited access to your system during normal operation. However, if there is something we can do to help from our office, we can send a time limited access request, which after approval allows us to diagnose and resolve any troubles on the software side of the system.
Auto-arming and arming schedules help keep your business safer without any human action. Setting an alarm schedule guarantees your system will arm/disarm at specified times/days, giving you peace of mind that your system is always protecting when it should. Auto arming uses your set closing time and motion detectors to determine when everybody has left the building for the day.
Easily cancel false alarms from anywhere, or verify an alarm to expedite emergency service response. You can also set panic alerts for employees in case of any sticky situations.
Security isn't only built for the nightmare scenarios, but also to make sure your business is operating properly on a daily basis. Looking at the sensor histories will show you exactly what sensors were activated when, leaving no gray area for events that occurred. This feature is equally useful whether you want to track activity within the building, or just enjoy a simple overview of information.
Most security equipment is focused on keeping your business safe from malicious outside actors, however these actors aren't always from the outside or at random. Our systems allow for a closer eye to be kept on delivery drivers or maintenance vendors as well with custom guest codes and schedules. In this day and age trust can only go so far, and we fill the gaps left with intelligent technology that's sole purpose is the safety and protection of your business.
Expecting you to be at your business 24 hours per day is not realistic, hence why security systems are so important. With our system, you can access and interact with devices from your phone in even more ways than you can on-site. The digital world has given us some of the best tools possible to have 24/7 peace of mind whether in the office, on the road, or relaxing at home.
One of the most overlooked aspects of any security system is WHO is doing the system design and installation. Here at Astra, we do everything in-house to ensure the same quality and care for every client. We do not contract system design, installation, or service calls to any third parties. From our Security Advisors, Install Tech's, and Service Team, Astra Security employees have been trained in expert system design characteristics. We think through the smallest details of every project to ensure you receive the most efficient coverage possible.
