Deep Sentinel, the only AI-powered security provider with monitoring by live guards, unveiled a new product designed for small-to-medium businesses: Deep Sentinel for Business. Providing after-hours protection against crimes like vandalism and theft, Deep Sentinel for Business features many of the same benefits as Deep Sentinel’s home security product.
Weatherproof cameras use AI to detect potential threats, alerting one of the company’s LiveSentinel guards to any unusual activity. Guards can then intervene through the system’s two-way audio and 104dB siren, with the ability to contact local law enforcement within seconds, if needed.
“Unlike other service providers, Deep Sentinel helps prevent crime through smart detection and live, human intervention, our goal is to actively stop a crime from ever occurring, rather, than simply alerting businesses after the damage is done,” said Deep Sentinel CEO and co-founder David Selinger. “It’s like having a trained guard at every access point on your property, but at a fraction of the cost.”
"I hate showing up to work and finding needles, trash or damage on the property. It's inconvenient for me and my staff, and it also creates a negative impression for customers,” said Andrew Lenz, owner of Lenz Arts in Santa Cruz and a Deep Sentinel for Business customer since July 2019. “With Deep Sentinel, they are on it, and they prevent these things from happening in the first place."
Deep Sentinel supports small business owners in safeguarding their livelihood"
Deep Sentinel also announced a venture capital investment from Nationwide, bringing its total Series A funding to $24M.
Previous investors in Deep Sentinel include Shasta Ventures, Bezos Expeditions, Lux Capital and UP2398.
“Technology and protection products like Deep Sentinel support small business owners in safeguarding their livelihood, which is critical to operational success,” said Nationwide Vice President of Commercial Underwriting and Product Tony Fenton. “Nationwide is proud to have spent the last 90 years empowering and protecting small business owners, which aligns well with the capabilities of Deep Sentinel.”
500 Deep Sentinel for Business launches into general availability after 10 months of live user testing with more than a dozen small businesses, and hundreds of potential crimes already thwarted. Designed for after-hours protection, live guards respond to alerts in 10 seconds or less, providing constant monitoring of potential threats.
