Filipino ingenuity at its best

MANILA — If you think the CCTV (closed-circuit television) camera is sufficient enough as a security device to protect you, you better think twice.

Now, it can be told that Filipinos are really innovative when it comes to information technology development.

In fact, MiGuard, a wholly Filipino-owned company has come up with a whole package of security and surveillance system that fits the needs of every Filipino family and businesses.

Manuel Syquian, Jr., president of MiGuard, in an interview by the Philippine News Agency (PNA), said “It’s MiGuard’s mission to protect our countrymen.

“We stand firm by our tagline that ‘We Want You Safe,’” Syquian added.

“It is not only your loved ones that we want to protect, we also want to take care of your homes. To safeguard your homes from fire and even flood, a problem most of our people face in times of the rainy season,” he said.

The Miguard Security Alarm System Premium Package consists of do-it-yourself (DIY) different devices designed to prevent crimes.

Axel Craig Frencillo, MiGuard Account Manager, told the PNA, “We would like to share to the people the MiGuard system of alarms for home care, family care, and real-time monitoring.”

Frencillo added that “the MiGuard System has a 24/7 Command Center which can detect what’s happening around the home or business establishments from the wireless or no cord DIY devices.”

All the 100 devices are connected to the console with siren, which is the “brains” of the system. The console is activated by passive infrared sensor such that human body heat can be detected even in darkness.

It also comes with a water leak detector, fire or smoke sensor, medical call button to call for help in cases of medical emergency, a 90-angle camera with a 360-degree view, and an SOS or panic button for crime incident to send notification to the Command Center for the dispatching of different rescue.

The Command Center is located in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

The integrated home security and surveillance system can be subscribed for PHP504.00 a month.

The whole security and surveillance system costs PHP37,154.00, which can be paid on installment basis. (PNA)
