What our customers say

"We love the Guard1 system. We use it throughout the entire facility. We have added numerous location buttons and users. These processes are very simple and take very little time. We require the shift commander to run a report each shift to ensure that all security rounds are being made as they should be. The system used to run the reports is extremely user-friendly and takes only seconds to run.

"As for the actual equipment, we’ve also been very pleased. The pipes are incredibly durable and hold up extremely well. The downloaders are no different. The entire system was exactly as described by you in meetings prior to us getting the system. I should also mention that the customer service was very good too. This includes the training and installation as well as post-installation questions. We couldn’t be more pleased with the Guard1 system. I don’t know how we operated without it. Thanks again for all the help along the way."
