NCSS secures two

Friday, December 12, 2014

LAFAYETTE, Tenn.—North Central Security Services (NCSS), on Dec. 9 announced it has been chosen as the security company for Loftis Underground, a full-service excavation, cabling/boring company and Macon Pride Car Wash, a local car wash facility.

Loftis Underground was in the process of expanding its main building and wanted to upgrade its security system so management could view the facility remotely from any job site.

“It was crucial for us to be able to have remote view access of our facility 24/7 to help track our employees and control the on-site gas pump,” Melissa Loftis, Co-owner of the Loftis Group said in a prepared statement.

NCSS installed a monitored alarm system that communicates with a POTS line as well as a cellular back-up panel to ensure all monitoring needs were met. In addition, it installed a 16-channel DVR and 10 IP cameras along with all the components to make the system functional. An access control system was installed on the gates with ID badges issued to all employees to help keep track of employee work hours. As an added precaution, Maglocks where installed on the exterior doors to help limit who could gain entry to certain areas of the facility. This helped the owners solve the problem of controlling who has access to certain areas of the business.

The Macon Pride Car Wash had similar issues and NSCC used similar technology on that project.
