SCW Shield Setup Expands with you

Security that Scales With You

As your business expands, Shield can expand with you.

If you a large single location, with multiple zones, such as an office and a warehouse on the same property, you can add multiple Shield hubs on one Shield subscription plan. You can give some of your staff access codes for one part of the building and not the other. Each hub can be armed and managed independently - without needing to pay for multiple monitoring plans.

If you expand to multiple locations, Shield Account Manager allows you to be able to pull reports based on location and grant staff access to only the locations where they work.

So, whether you have one shop or a thousand, Shield scales.

Minimal Design; Maximum Protection

Our simple, minimalistic pin pad blends effortlessly with the rest of your decor.

Our door and window sensors are 50% smaller than most of the industry.

The Shield Hub is hidden away in your supply closet. It uses custom encrypted wireless communication to talk to the sensors.

Thieves won't be able to disable the hub, because they can't find it.

SCW Shield Alarm System Residential vs Commercial Motion Sensor Design

Shield is Different

Here's one example of our attention to detail and emphasis on security: different motion sensors for commercial clients.

Our Commercial Indoor Motion Sensor is UL, IC, and FCC Listed for Commercial Insurance.

Unlike our competitors, we understand the needs of companies are different than those of individuals. Homeowners want motion sensors that aren't triggered by pets, but many corporate insurance plans won't accept pet-resistant motion sensors.

No Power, No Internet, No Problem

Comes standard with battery backup.

Doesn't need a landline since it uses the internet connection you already have.

Verizon wireless cellular backup come standard on Shield Elite Hubs.

Shield Plays Well with Others

Don't get boxed into one provider: Shield works with thousands of products, already.

In addition to our propriety, secure, encrypted wireless sensors, Shield speaks the most common open home automation standard: Z-Wave.
