Legal Marijuana Grow-Ops Are High Risk Ventures And Need A Special Security Solution

Legal_Marijuana_Grow-Op_Sonitrol_Security_SolutionsAs an illegal substance, marijuana grow-ops have always been the target of armed robberies and break-ins. 


Like any theft, the margins are 100% profit … but with marijuana grow ops, the target for criminals is super attractive, especially since there’s a ready marijuana market for quick product sale. Unlicensed grow-ops can’t report to the Police if their location has been the target of an armed robbery or break-in.  But for licensed marijuana businesses, with legal marijuana growing operations, the situation is very different.


If criminals were confident enough to rob or break into another criminal’s illegal marijuana grow-op, do you think they will be afraid to rob a legal marijuana facility?  


If you're a criminal who's not afraid of another criminal who may shoot you, because he's the owner of an illegal marijuana grow-op - then you’re not going to be afraid of a law abiding business person and/or scientist running a legal marijuana grow-op and who doesn't have a gun, or a group of friends in the “protection business”.


Legal grow-ops are therefore very high risk for theft and armed robbery.


If you’re thinking of getting into the legal marijuana business, or you're already licensed and operating, then you need a marijuana security system that is going to work really well and bring a quick Police response - guaranteed.


Our Sonitrol legal marijuana business security solution will do the job for you.


Sonitrol’s security consultants will design a verified and fully integrated security system for your marijuana grow operation that employs the best physical security for fences, windows, doors, with access control ... but also you'll get a technically advanced verified video and audio monitoring system that the police will respond to.


Our verified SonaVision technology is a remotely monitored video solution that is considerably superior to CCTV. CCTV just records activity, at best, providing you with an after the fact video of a guy wearing a ski mask (unidentifiable), but more often provides nothing at all, since criminals are well aware they can remove the digital recorder or damage it enough that there is no record. If our SonaVision alarm system is tripped by a break-in or armed robbery, we stream the live SonaVision video directly to the responding Police units, so they're ready and prepared to catch the criminals in action.


Additionally, Sonitrol’s active audio continuously monitors the ambient sounds in a marijuana grow-op facility and when break-ins are attempted, the audio recordings are listened to by our monitoring station, and when verified, the Police are informed of a crime in progress. In the case of armed robberies, our live audio stream is passed directly to responding Police units so they can hear exactly what is happening.


Sonitrol security solutions include integrated access control to securely manage entry to gates and doors only allowing those who are authorized to enter. Our systems record all authorized entries and unauthorized entry attempts, adding another layer of security for your marijuana business.


Professional thieves know how Sonitrol verified security systems work; how they are very difficult to defeat and how Police across North America give a prioritized response to Sonitrol calls for crimes in progress. Therefore many professional criminals will not attempt to rob or break into a facility protected by Sonitrol.


Experienced criminals who are looking for quick wins, will not bother trying to challenge a Sonitrol system? They would be more successful if they hit a facility protected with an unverified conventional alarm system with inferior CCTV, which can be easily beaten and doesn’t get a Police response.


If you need to protect your legal marijuana business assets from armed robbery and theft then you need to get the best security system that actually works.
