Q: What are the startup and operating costs associated with an electric fence installation project?
A: There are no upfront costs prior to installing an electric fence. The customer must provide a structurally sound "outer" perimeter fence — something already present on most potential sites. We own and service all essential materials in The Electric Guard Dog Fence.
Operating costs are negligible because The Electric Guard Dog Fence is powered by a 12-volt marine (DC) battery continuously charged by a solar panel(s). Traditional power sources (the grid) may be used as a backup measure or to assist in (trickle) charging the battery — options that would not noticeably increase energy costs.
Q: Is the system prone to false alarms?
A: Our patented design minimizes nuisance alarms caused by birds, small animals and weather — common pitfalls of alternative perimeter security systems. A key failsafe on an AMAROK perimeter security system withholds alarm signals until a voltage change continues for a preset timeframe. This eliminates nuisance alarms caused by isolated blips and ensures that alarm signals are reserved for genuine intrusion and tampering efforts.
Q: Is The Electric Guard Dog Fence compatible with other security systems and equipment?
A: Yes. An electric fence installation can be performed with other access control systems and security components.
Q: Do you perform electric fence installation projects for residential systems?
A: No. Our systems are designed specifically for commercial and industrial locations.
Q: Is my company liable for damages if someone gets hurt?
A: First, the security solutions provided by our security fence company are completely medically safe. Because of the safety of the product, it is rare for claims of injury to be made at our 4,000+ customer locations. More importantly, because we believe in the safety of our electric fence installation services, we will stand by you if a claim is ever made. AMAROK indemnifies its customers and defends them in the event of a claim. You'll be added as an additional insured to further that protection.
Q: What sets it off?
A: The voltage is monitored 24/7. If the voltage drops below 2,000 volts for more than five seconds, an alarm signal is sent to the alarm panel that will sound sirens on site and notify the central monitoring station. The central monitoring station will then follow the protocol you have established, which can be to dispatch the police or notify the call out list. By requiring a deviation in voltage of five seconds, we eliminate the false alarms that plague other exterior security systems such as small animals, brushing of tree limbs, etc.
Q: What other services can be bundled with The Electric Guard Dog Fence?
A: We offer a diverse package of security products that can meet the security needs of your specific location. We can offer motion detectors and door contacts for interior security. Need cameras to verify an alarm? We have those. In some areas, we can provide a guard response to alarms. Learn more about our product options.
Q: What happens when the contract runs out?
A: The contract renews automatically for another 12-month period. Most customers continue to use the service until they move from the location.
Q: Who is responsible for repairs?
A: AMAROK. We offer you a turnkey solution. We include full maintenance as part of your monthly service fee and will repair damages to The Electric Guard Dog™, regardless of the cause.
Q: How much money can I save?
A: Potential money savings depends on your individual circumstances. Our average customer who replaces a 24/7 guard will save more than $120,000 per year. If you replace a weekend guard, your savings could be $25,000 per year. Customers who use The Electric Guard Dog Fence at a large number of facilities suggest that they save $3 for every $1 they spend with us.
