Diligent ESS provides Integrated Electronic Security and Video Surveillance Systems for Assisted Living Facilities and Residences designed to your specifications. 

Our objective is to provide access control, video surveillance and Fire Alarm Monitoring, beginning with integrated electronic security devices with the sole purpose of deterring workplace violence by protecting assets, staff and visitors. 


Who We Protect

An assisted living residence or facility’s sole purpose is tending to and caring for adults who cannot or choose not to live independently. The term is popular in the United States but is similar to a retirement home by providing a shared living ecosystem. Typically these residences cater to the elderly population. This includes the ability to protect and track resident’s location throughout the facility while maintaining an open line of communication between the staff and management should an emergency arise.

We understand what Assisted Living Facilities and Residences require a specific combination of technologies designed to keep the residents safe and the staff informed. Below we’ve listed groups of individuals and items that we hold ourselves accountable to when working with Assisted Living Facilities and Residences …

  • Residents

  • Family Members

  • Nurses

  • State Tested Nursing Assistant

  • Facilities Staff

  • Visitors


Areas and Types of Security Protection for Commercial Entities

A combination of the below access control, video surveillance and security systems ensures that mission-critical information can be easily accessed during any crisis or life-threatening event. Diligent Electronic Security Systems allows offsite control and monitoring from anywhere and at any time through a mobile device. We further enhance this feature in each of our systems by giving local law enforcement and fire protection agencies the native ability to actively manage and view inside the school’s security and video systems remotely and in real-time. The end result is an efficient, open line of communication between first responders, decision makers, and faculty inside the building that ensures that every safety measure is taken in order to save lives.


Resident Wandering


It’s critical for your staff to know a where your residents are located throughout the facility at all times. To accomplish this, Diligent Electronic Security Systems offers wandering tags and locator badges to provide value, real-time information to your staff.


Visitor Reception Area


A Visitor Reception area’s goal is to isolate visitors to a specific area, it requires that visitors are checked in before being allowed entrance into the facility. This is accomplished by utilizing video intercom, access control and video surveillance systems. Once the visitor has checked in, they are then allowed to enter the facility.  


Perimeter Security


Perimeter Security is the first line of defense designed to keep non-approved visitors out and to allow only authorized individuals access. 

  • Parking Emergency Call Stations

  • Parking Control Gates/Barriers

  • Glass Barrier Film

  • Optical Turnstiles

  • Visitor Intercoms

  • Fire Alarm Monitoring


Depending on the volume of employees, optical turnstiles are a good solution to allow a large number of employees entrance into a facility in a short period of time. Additionally, access control is the best way to monitor employees who are entering and exiting the facility by utilizing an Anti-Pass-Back feature.


Access Control & Security


An Access Control System (ACS) can be implemented as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or designed through an onsite server. Access control is the method in which you only allow authorized entry into the facility via a proximity reader and photo ID access control card. The proximity card is identifiable to the person holding the card and can be programmed on a predetermined selected day and/or time to allow entrance. The Access Control System also allows you to run custom reports downloadable as a .csv file. These reports give insight and detail into who entered the building or facility at what time, if a specific individual is currently in the building, and who isn’t currently inside of the building.

  • Proximity Readers

  • Request to Exit Devices

  • Door Position Switches

  • Emergency Call Buttons

  • Visitor Intercom

  • ADA Compliant Emergency Call Phones


The best way to protect IT rooms or other areas that require high security is via a bio-metric scanners paired with proximity readers. This combination assures that the authorized employee requesting access to that area is actually that person.


Video Surveillance


A Video Surveillance System displays live activity in a specified area of the building by utilizing a strategically placed video camera(s) throughout the exterior and interior of any facility. This allows the end user to watch live or recorded video either on or offsite through a mobile device.

  • Network Video Recorders (NVRs)

  • Perimeter Exterior IP Cameras

  • Interior Megapixel IP Cameras


Additionally, video surveillance systems provide a great way to reduce insurance costs by monitoring working areas where life safety and OSHA compliance is critical. 


Emergency Perimeter Door Lockdown


An Emergency Perimeter Door Lockdown is one of the key features of an Access Control System. This system utilizes all pre-installed proximity door equipment. Should the need ever arise, it allows for immediate emergency perimeter door lock down. If the individual, who has the necessary authorization to initiate the sequence, he or she can activate it with a signal stroke of the keypad or from his or her mobile device. Once activated, all exterior doors are locked down and only allow First Responders entry via the proximity reader.


Provide peace-of-mind to residents, families, and staff.
