Alpharetta Restaurant Burglarized With the Manager Inside

On December 21st the Manager of Sage Tavern Restaurant in Alpharetta reported that a burglar had broken into the restaurant shortly after he arrived that morning.

The manager said that he had just arrived at the business and had turned off the security alarm. He was in the kitchen when he heard an unusual sound originating from the dining room of the restaurant. The Manager then said he went to investigate the ongoing noise.

When he was approached in the dining room he saw that the glass door to the patio was broken. He then saw the silhouette of a person. The burglar yelled something unintelligible but the Manager said the voice sounded male. The Manager then ran to the parking lot and went onto his car to dial 911. While he was circling the restaurant in his car he saw the burglar with his face covered leaving in a small black Lexus.

Upon further investigation of the crime scene the Manager discovered a lug wrench by the patio, a ceiling tile next to his office was missing and two cash register drawers that had been in the file cabinet in his office had been cleaned out with a total of $550 stolen.

As of this date the brazen burglar has not been apprehended.

Please take prudent steps to safeguard your home and business against crime. Don’t become another statistic. Encounters with burglars often result in serious harm or even death.

Call Now for Your Most Competitive Quote

Let Us Provide The NFPA Certificate For Your Fire Alarm System

Let American Guardian engineer a fire alarm system for your business to comply with all required jurisdiction codes and we will also provide the NFPA Certificate required by most jurisdictions. We will take care of all of the drawings, submittals and battery calculations. We will also meet with your local Fire Marshall (AHJ) to get our plans stamped and approved. As soon as we have your Fire Alarm plans approved and stamped, American Guardian will install your Fire Alarm system in exact accordance with the plans, the NFPA 72 fire alarm code, and the NEC electrical code.

American Guardian Provides Follow Through

After we have installed your expertly and professionally engineered Fire Alarm System we will then meet with the Fire Marshall for the final inspection that will enable your company to get your required Certificate of Occupancy (CO) and we will then send our Certificate of Completion to your insurance company. 

After your Fire Alarm system has been installed and all of the governing authorities have signed off on the installation, American Guardian will monitor your Fire Alarm system and will provide the absolute highest level of service to ensure that your Fire Alarm remains in proper working order. American Guardian has trained and certified technicians on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So, if there should be a glitch or a service issue we are able to respond immediately.

No Proprietary Equipment

You will be pleased to know that American Guardian never tries to lock their customers in by installing overly expensive proprietary equipment. Competitors that use proprietary equipment will charge outrageous amounts of money even for the most simple service calls.

American Guardian charges only $88 per hour if the Fire Alarm system is monitored by us and only $97 per hour if we do not monitor the system.

The problem with going with a company that installs proprietary fire alarm equipment is that the company make huge profits at the expense of the customer. First, they charge a lot more for the Fire Alarm system. Secondly, they charge a trip charge of around $95 plus a two hour minimum for a service call usually at $135 per hour. 

Consequently, the reason these companies charge so much is that they know the customer has no one else to call to service their proprietary equipment. They also know that their customer is locked into them for life.

Fire Marshall Consideration

 

Has the Fire Marshall recently visited your business and asked you to provide your NFPA 72 Certificate? If he has call American Guardian. We can do the inspection and issue a NFPA 72 certificate at a cost that is far below that of most other alarm companies.

CCTV and Video Surveillance from American Guardian

CCTV Video Surveillence

When a business owner decides to protect his business, employees and customers by making an investment in CCTV camera systems or video surveillance the single most important factor to consider is the history, experience level, and track record of the security dealer who will be installing and servicing the equipment. This is extremely important because inevitably your CCTV equipment or video surveillance equipment will require periodic adjustments and service. All too often a business owner who bought equipment at a bargain basement price discovers the false economy of his purchase when the obscure security dealer is out of business and when his system requires warranty work or service. When that happens it is extremely difficult to find a reputable dealer who will provide service on a system that they did not install.

American Guardian has been installing business security systems and providing stellar service to their customers for over twenty five years. If you decide to place your faith and trust in us you can rest assured that we will be around to honor our warranties and service commitments when you need us.

Remember, there is a difference in quality and service when choosing a security provider.

Glossary of Security Camera Terminology

Below is a partial Glossary of Security Camera Terminology

  • Brick Camera – Professional body camera rectangle in shape – hence the name brick.
  • Bullet Camera – Long cylindrical camera shaped like a bullet.
  • Dome Camera – Camera enclosed in a smoked glass or plastic dome. Used in applications where less obtrusive cameras are desirable.
  • Covert Camera – Camera which is designed to be hidden. Can be hidden in a clock, motion detector, smoke detector, etc.
  • CCD – Charged coupled device. This is the imaging device of the camera.
  • Mega Pixel Camera – Megapixel/HDTV cameras offer a dramatically higher quality of video resolution than traditional analog cameras.
  • Analog Camera – Traditional analog circuitry/non-digital.
  • IP Cameras – Internet protocol camera. These cameras are for use in computer networks. These cameras can provide a high resolution, crystal clear image comparable to video taken with a 10 megapixel camera. Drawback: IP cameras eat up a tremendous amount of bandwidth and can slow the entire network down if not designed properly.
  • Day/Night Cameras – These cameras can deliver high resolution color in daylight and acceptable resolution at night.
  • Infrared Camera – Use infrared illuminators inside the camera to “see” at night.
  • Non Infrared Day/Night Camera – Uses an extremely efficient low lux technology to deliver a high resolution image in night settings without the aid of infra red illuminators.
  • Wide Dynamic Range Camera – WDR cameras provide a high resolution image in a challenging bright environment where glare would normally be a problem with most cameras.
  • Fixed Lens Cameras – Cameras with lenses which are fixed at one focus setting and can not be adjusted.
  • Varifocal Lenses – Lenses which can be adjusted by the technician at the installation site to provide the best possible picture.
  • Auto Iris Lenses – Lenses which automatically adjust to light conditions to optimize the picture quality.
  • 1/3 Inch Sony CCD – The main driver of camera quality. The gold standard in camera chips. You want to use 1/3 inch over the lower quality ¼ inch aperture camera commonly seen in the market place.
  • PTZ Cameras – PTZ stands for Pan, Tilt, and Zoom. These are more expensive cameras that are motorized and can be controlled remotely by an operator to zoom in on suspicious behavior.
  • Vandal Proof Dome – Vandal Proof Dome cameras are virtually indestructible cameras that are used in prisons, jails, or high crime areas.
  • Weather Proof Housing – Weatherproof housings are used to enclose outside cameras. They are waterproof and sometimes even contain heating elements with internal electric fans for use in severe climate conditions.
  • DVR – Digital Video Recorder. This is used to store, record, and retrieve large volumes of video content.
  • Video Analytics – Technology that enables video systems to detect, interpret, and analyze movement within a predefined target area of a camera’s total picture range.
  • Remote Monitoring – Video monitoring that is remotely monitored and stored by a licensed UL Listed monitoring station for the purpose of adding another layer of enhanced protection for the client.
  • American Guardian Proprietary Technology – Proprietary technology developed and owned by American Guardian which is exclusive to American Guardian and not available to security dealers in the general marketplace.
