Sentinel’s groundbreaking
“Electronic Guard”
The Sentinel Electronic Guard is a cable free, battery operated keypad, security camera and motion sensor kit … perfect for guarding spaces where valuable items are stored, but its not desirable to install a full CCTV system and / or pay for nightly guards.
Lease from $165 / week
‘False alarms’ are a thing of the past, Sentinel Electronic guard ensures break-ins are verified and police can be dispatched as a priority robbery in progress call
  • Did you know that 98% of all alarm activations are false?
  • Did you know without verification of the nature of an event police cannot be called?
  • Did you know that industry standard for a guard response is 45 minutes?
  • Did you know Sentinel Electronic Guard systems have resulted in more arrests per systems than any other systems?

Elevator Control and Lighting Control
Sentinel Systems Elevator Control is designed specifically to prevent unnecessary travel in and around your property. This permits your customers limited access to only the floors they have business on – while offering all customers the highest level of security.
Our lighting control feature allows lights, or any relay controlled electrical device, to be turned on and off according to tenant activity and/or time of day.
Proximity Readers
Proximity cards can be combined with standard keypads to extend a secondary level of access control for those customers that require an enhanced level of security for their most prized valuables.
Quick Click System
No longer will customers with RVs or large commercial vehicles be forced to exit their vehicle to key in a passcode or swipe an access card. They simply pull up to the gate and use the transmitter on their keychain. Their unique transmitter code is sent back to the WinSen Property Sentinel software where their access attempt is validated and recorded in the site activity logs.
