Envera Systems

Diamond Level Winner—Safety and Security
(Winner 2022 and seven previous RCA wins)

     Access your life with Envera Systems, a full-service security company that specializes in technology-based solutions and services for communities. Envera’s mission is to partner with communities and provide security through industry-leading technology and superior customer service. With teams dedicated to innovation, Envera’s vision is to continuously support associations and improve amenity and asset protection with solutions that strengthen community value. 

     Envera focuses on making sure that community entrances, clubhouses, pools, and other assets are protected in a way that is not obtrusive to the quality of life. Our state-of-the-art central monitoring operations center oversees it all, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with licensed Virtual Guards. 

     With the revolutionary Virtual Gate Guard, Envera uses strategically placed cameras and two-way audio to allow remotely located guards to verify visitors at gated communities. Auto-verification enhancements allow the Virtual Gate Guard to immediately verify repeat and permitted visitors with driver’s license, license plate, and QR technology. Envera also secures resident lanes with access control solutions that prevent sharing credentials, can be easily deactivated, and can be managed by Envera’s security guards. 

     While the Virtual Gate Guard greets and screens visitors at a community entrance, Envera’s Active Video Surveillance keeps pools, parks, clubhouses, and other amenities clear of trespassers and vandals. When the area closes at night, artificial intelligence assists in monitoring and alerting Envera’s guards when anyone enters. A Virtual Guard voices down to the trespassers to tell them the area is closed. If trespassers refuse to leave, Envera can contact the local authorities. 

Additionally, Envera offers accompanying solutions to secure all areas of a community when needed. As an all-inclusive provider, Envera installs, implements, services, and monitors all systems. Community security includes service and support, and that’s the Envera difference.
