Our innovative Generation 2 (G2) security System uses state of the art technology to provide you with a 24/7 monitoring system for your peace of mind. Not only is our system cheaper to install than a regular system, but there is also no need for phone lines, power supplies or a complicated installation.
The following diagram and description provides a basic understanding of how the G2 Security System works.
G2 Key Fob
The G2 Key Fob allows authorized personnel access to your facility. Its small size is ideal for storing on a key ring. Each Key Fob is specific to a user. When used in conjunction with the MGM G2 hardware unit you will have up-to-the-minute information on when, and by whom your sites are being accessed.
Generation 2 (G2) Hardware Unit
The MGM G2 hardware unit is attached to the facility and can monitor a number of sensors. This innovative device transmits data via L-band communications satellite to a Satellite Network Operations Centre, which in turn relays it over secure channels to MGM’s facilities for processing. Notifications are sent from the servers via SMS, Email, or automated voice to designated persons.
The unit has the capability of receiving multiple digital or analog sensor signals. For example, the unit could monitor not only the door, but also a motion or infrared detector. The unit is battery operated which has been upgraded to provide up to three years of battery life under normal conditions. No power lines or phone lines are needed to operate the unit.
The Satellite Network Operations Centre receives the satellite data and forwards it over secure channels to MGM’s facilities for processing. MGM’s server interprets this data presenting it online via a client’s specific secure login. If there is an alarm, clients are automatically notified via landline or cellular phone, SMS, or email. Activation and deactivation of Key Fobs, site assignments, and contact lists for alarms are all done in-house by your assigned system administrator.
24/7 Monitoring and Alarms
Data sent by the MGM G2 can be viewed 24/7 in real time online via secure client login. In addition, if there is any type of alarm (for example an unauthorized door opening) clients are notified via landline or cellular phone, SMS, or email. So no matter where you are, you will know the status of your facility.
Mag Guard Monitoring has developed this innovative security system to be infinitely expandable in the future. With possibilities of such things as advanced access control and inventory control we will be working hard to utilize as much of the potential as required.
