Electrical Utilities: Complete 24/7 Security Monitoring Service Now Available from the Systems With Intelligence and Util-Assist Partnership

April 25, 2022
Mississauga, ON - Systems With Intelligence, (SWI), has announced a partnership with Util-Assist to provide a complete, turn-key, monitoring and security response service for electric power utilities. One of the many challenges utilities have is securing their remote sites and equipment. With their skilled workers already at capacity and consistently shrinking budgets, utilities will often choose to channel their resources to perform more urgent maintenance tasks over monitoring their remote sites and assets. Preventing unauthorized access to these sites increases the safety of workers and the public while decreasing utility costs due to theft, vandalism, and the resulting outages. Depending on location and other unique circumstances, utilities may not have the personnel or skill set to handle unauthorized access incidents which may lead to injuries and damage to the system.
