Electric Guard Dog’s Integrated Layers of Security provide essential measures that deter, detect and delay theft anywhere on your property.

Electric Guard Dog begins with three proven Core Layers of deterrence:

Solar Powered Electric Fence. 

  • EGDs install a solar powered electric fence inside your perimeter fence, away from accidental touch.
  • This fence is integrated with a outdoor perimeter alarm system to help fill the gaps and mitigate risks.
  • It’s solar-powered for continuous protection.

Shock. It’s safe, but it hurts.

  • Warning signs are provided with our solar electric fences.
  • Each sign displays a warning to inform criminals of the 7,000 volts that are delivered by our solar powered electric fence.
  • Few thieves will ever touch or approach our outdoor perimeter alarm system, and no thief will touch it more than once.

Outdoor Perimeter Alarm System.

  • Thieves prefer silence and will often abandon a break-in when our loud outdoor perimeter alarm system is activated.
  • Any attempt to scale or touch the solar electric fence will activate the outdoor perimeter alarm system and a quick response from our monitoring center.

EGD’s pioneering RMR business model and integrated systems focus on deterrence, fueled by uninterruptible solar power, 24/7 monitoring and response, and layers that include video, alarms, and building intrusion sensors.

Building Intrusion

  • Are you doing enough to protect your buildings, offices and sensitive spaces against unauthorized entry, even within your perimeter?
  • EGD’s outdoor perimeter alarm system and solar powered electric fence solutions include door and window contacts, motion and glassbreak detectors and more, all backed by support from our monitoring center.

. False alarm or real emergency?

  • Quit guessing and know what’s going on when your perimeter security system goes off.
  • 24/7 video monitoring allows you to instantly verify alarms through a mobile app.
  • EGD’s solar electric fence includes cameras that are installed at critical site points.
  • These cameras are connected to a local Network Video Recorder to provide cloud-based video alarm verification. 

EGD Outdoor Perimeter Alarm Verification.

  • Let EGD do the video monitoring for you.
  • EGD is there 24/7 to instantly verify alarms from your electric security gate and respond.
  • EGD’s team will also help catch the thieves who fail to bypass the solar electric fence. Cameras connected to a local Network Video Recorder provide cloud-based video alarm verification.

EGD Alarm Response

  • It is vital to respond to intruders that are attempting to bypass the solar powered electric fence and outdoor perimeter alarm system on your property.
  • Law enforcement officials are often overburdened and may not always respond on time.
  • Whatever the emergency, from theft to maintenance issues, EGD Response Officers are trained to investigate and take action on site 24/7 when an individual attempts to bypass your perimeter security system and electric security gate.
