Security in the hotel and hospitality industry is vital for many reasons. It is necessary to make guests and staff feel comfortable while also protecting hotel property. Partnering with the right security provider for your specific needs can ensure the effectiveness of your hotel security program. A security plan plays a pivotal role in meeting the demands of peak event seasons, such as weddings, corporate events and post-event coverage, by providing essential support to ensure safety and smooth execution.

Protos understands the critical role that security plays in the hotel and hospitality industry. That’s why we provide armed and unarmed security offers that are familiar with the areas they serve. We can customize a security program specific to your locations and needs. We also empower choice as you have the ability to scale your security program. Whether your program is long- or short-term, all Protos clients receive access to our client portal, a dedicated service agent and access to our 24/7 security operations service center.

Access control

Keeping guests safe is a top priority. Unauthorized visitors should not enter lobbies or amenities that guests have access to use. In addition to protecting guests’ identities and preventing unauthorized access, security officers also help maintain privacy.

Guest relations

Security officers can serve as mediators when conflicts arise between guests or employees. They have been professionally trained to de-escalate situations and resolve disputes peacefully, preventing disturbances that may negatively affect other guests.

Guest Safety and Security

In the hotel and hospitality industry, security is primarily needed to ensure guests’ safety. A hotel accommodates a variety of individuals, and security measures help ensure that. Concierge-style officers create a welcoming atmosphere in the lobby and common areas for guests to feel comfortable. They are typically the initial point of contact as guests arrive at the hotel. A professional and friendly demeanor contributes to the overall experience, giving a positive guest experience.

Additionally, remote video services and cloud-based video surveillance solutions can be paired with physical onsite security to improve your security program. Remote video services allow for 24/7 monitoring of hotel premises from a central location. Security professionals can monitor and access surveillance cameras remotely in real-time, detecting and responding quickly to security threats.

Software Enabled Solutions

Protos was founded on the realization that the security industry was not adopting modern standards and technology. We have been innovating and transforming the industry ever since. We were the first to offer a complete security management dashboard for managing a manned security program. Using any internet-connected device, our clients can view real-time information as well as a data archives for valuable long-term analysis.

And through Protos Labs, our technology division, we are continuing to develop industry leading software to increase operational oversight for our clients.
