5 Drawbacks of Hiring Security Guards to Protect Your Business

For decades, measures to secure commercial property have largely remained the same. Many companies continue to hire security guards to prevent cargo theft and burglaries. This is an antiquated and ineffective way of protecting the hardware and inventory on your property from theft. The team at AMAROK provides exceptional technology that has transformed commercial property security. Our cost-effective and comprehensive perimeter security solutions eliminate the need to hire an expensive security guard to protect your property from theft. Here are the five drawbacks of relying on security guards to protect your truck yard or commercial property.

ONE: Training Expenses for Unreliable Security Guards

As a facility manager, you understand the cost of stolen property. According to CargoNet, the typical cost of a commercial property crime exceeds $200,000. In addition to recovering stolen property, your company can also suffer the cost of security guards who resign. A disadvantage to hiring security guards to project your office or facility includes wasted training expenses for employees that resign. Two weeks of notice may be the norm, but your security guards can walk out any time. That leaves you to ensure there is someone qualified to fill the post. Get ready! An employee who deals with a property crime loses an average of 37 hours of productive time.

Our customers don’t worry about the inevitable turnaround of hired security guards because our electric security fences, video surveillance cameras, and perimeter alarm systems are designed to protect your property around the clock. The system features multiple integrated layers of deterrents: an intimidating fence built inside the perimeter; a safe, but effective shock for anyone willing to test it; and a blaring alarm and alert to our monitoring center if someone interferes. The Electric Guard Dog Solar Electric Fence also includes 24/7 access to monitoring, alarm verification, and a trained response team.

TWO: Large Properties Are Hard to Manage & Protect

Properties like trucking and recycling yards have huge perimeters and numerous access points. With so much property to monitor, even the most skilled security guards can’t be in two places at once. To better secure an extensive perimeter, you could hire more security guards or add more security measures, but that adds up. AMAROK provides a more comprehensive, cost-effective commercial security solution. Our commercial security system replaces the need to hire security guards with a multi-layer approach that defends perimeters of all sizes. At the core of the system is an intimidating, 10-foot solar-powered electric fence. Along with shock and alarm systems, the fence guards your vast perimeter, so security guards don’t have to.

THREE: Contracted Security Guards May be Spread Thin

We understand the importance of securing all of your assets and resources. The more security guards you hire to monitor the perimeter, the fewer are available to protect everything else on your property. We help customers achieve greater security for all of their property and employees. The team at AMAROK reliably defends your yard and facility, freeing up security guards to monitor the building and conduct fire checks. Unlike security guards, The components of the Electric Guard Dog Fence don’t get pulled in several directions. The system works all day, every day – powered by dependable solar energy – to secure your site.

5 Drawbacks of Hiring Security Guards to Protect Your Business

FOUR: High Wages

How many security guards do you need to hire to protect your perimeter? What about its entrances and attached buildings? The more security guards you need to hire, the higher your overall wage costs. Security guard protection can burn a budget. The staff at AMAROK eliminates the need for security guards and helps your organization save money on wages. In fact, an average-size customer who switches to AMAROK from 24/7 security guards saves $120,000 every year. Our customers pay a low monthly fee based on the size, scale, and customized needs of their property. There are no costs for construction, installation, or maintenance. Plus, because solar energy powers the electric fence, you can expect low energy costs.

FIVE: Remote Locations Are Hard to Protect From Theft

Remote locations present serious security challenges. Instead of hiring a team of security guards, we recommend utilizing our perimeter security solutions to overcome your security issues. One threat of remote areas is they can be difficult to guard. The geography may present challenges to monitoring the site from multiple vantage points or offer limited services for hiring security guards. Organizations that utilize our electric fences and commercial security solutions don’t need as many eyes on their property. Our system does everything a security guard would: monitor, defend, and alert. 

Remote locations can also be hard to reach. When an incident occurs, a security guard can contact the authorities, but police may struggle to arrive in time. The security system provided by AMAROK provides businesses with 24/7 alarm verification. That means our highly trained staff does the monitoring for you, instantly verifying and responding to alarms. We can also investigate and take action onsite 24/7 with our team of response officers. With so few security guards, remote locations are also highly targeted. The Electric Guard Dog Fence alone makes would-be criminals think again. It’s the most effective visual deterrent, standing tall with clear warning signs that promise a jolt of 7,000 volts.


Electric Security Fences & Security Solutions

When companies use security guards with other protection systems, their payments can run higher than using one consolidated method like The Electric Guard Dog Fence. The average monthly cost of hiring a security guard is $14,000. Adding measures like video cameras and fencing increases the bill with no guarantee of greater security. AMAROK delivers on cost and results. 

On average, our customers invest $950 each month in AMAROK, which replaces a piecemeal security system with a comprehensive one. AMAROK also fulfills its promise. We have 4,000 happy customers across the country and 98% experience zero external theft.
