What is Concierge Security?
Concierge Security acts as another form of reception where they greet visitors to your building, take messages and answer any queries.

What services does Concierge Security provide?
Control access to your building
If your business deals with a lot of sensitive information or expensive equipment, you want to keep unauthorised personal out. Concierge security guards can check who is coming into your building and issue them key cards or fobs that only allow them into certain parts of your building. If your building can only be accessed with a key code, card or fob from the outside and visitors are there to see someone within your building, they can check and grant access when approved and have them sign a visitors log.
Many businesses have CCTV within their building but during the evening it can difficult to arrange a member of staff to monitor CCTV.
Concierge Security guards can monitor CCTV cameras throughout the day and evening, ensuring that anyone acting suspiciously or trying to break into your building are quickly responded too and apprehended.
