Meet the Deep Sentinel Guards: Demetrius
Most traditional alarm system companies like ADT or Bay Alarm staff their monitoring centers with minimally qualified phone reps. When an alarm goes off at your home, the best they can do is call you to check whether it was a burglar or a faulty sensor. That’s not very reassuring, right? With Deep Sentinel, a skilled professional is ready to jump in at the first sign of trouble. Our live security guards are experts in their fields, ranging from law enforcement to personal security to the military. They come to us as experts, and we train them to be criminal intervention specialists with the help of AI-powered security cameras.
So, who are these expert guards? Learn more about Demetrius, one of the surveillance guards at Deep Sentinel, who brings extensive law enforcement knowledge to the team.
