The Sentry-Pro offers a dependable video surveillance solution for any location needing live remote monitoring, crime deterrence or real-time police response. The uses are endless: parking lots, boat docks, ranch gates, farms, HOA’s, intersections, sports events, concerts, construction sites, parks, schools, universities, government buildings, police departments, and most off-grid locations. The Sentry-Pro is the perfect solution for locations where power and communications are not readily available.

The Sentry is not just a live surveillance solution, but also an incredibly effective project management tool. Using our mobile apps, users can log into the video feeds live and monitor the activity such as workers’ performance, deliveries, weather conditions, and safety procedures.

The on-demand (4) weeks of 4K video recordings can be searched, and selected events downloaded to smart phones or computers. Automated AI programmed alerts can instantly notify users of an event. After hours our live monitoring center takes over assuring live deterrence response and PD dispatch if intruders do not comply with the commands to exit the protected area.

Deterrence & Response

The presence of a Sentry-Pro on-site has an immediate deterrence effect on crime and other nuisance behaviors. The system offers three levels of monitoring and response. It can be deployed on-site and set to record all events to the onboard nvr without remote access or monitoring. The most popular option is the cellular data link service which allows you to remotely view cameras live, review recorded video, and receive programmed detection alerts directly to your smartphone. The most responsive option is our 24/7 video monitoring service. Our representatives respond to unwanted visitors in real-time, broadcasting warnings to leave and when needed, dispatch security services or the police.

Effective Coverage Area

The base unit is equipped with (2) Active Deterrence PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras and (2) CS-PTZ300 Long Range Zoom PTZ cameras providing an effective surveillance area of 196,000sq feet. The cameras are referred to as “active deterrence” because they are equipped with advanced AI, allowing the camera to detect a human as well as motorized and non-motorized vehicle profiles with 99% accuracy. Each profile can have unique custom automated responses independent from the other profiles. For example, when the camera specifically detects a human profile entering a selected area, the camera can automatically broadcast a message to the intruder and activate its warning lights, while launching the live video feed to your smartphone and notifying our central monitoring center. The cameras are also equipped with live two-way communication.

Camera Selection

Each Sentry-Pro can support up to 5 Cyber-Secure surveillance cameras. Each unit can be customized with several different camera options in any combination. The camera options include active deterrence, long-range infrared pan-tilt-zoom, license plate capture, 24-hour color, motorized zoom and wide-angle fixed view. Give us a call and we’ll be glad to customize a Sentry-Pro to fit your exact needs.

License Plate ID & Capture

License Plate Capture

Add an LPR (license plate capture) camera to your Sentry trailer. The Sentry surveillance systems are equipped with advanced AI (Artificial Intelligence) built into the software. It provides the ability to identify license plates and send alerts if a known or unknown plate is detected. The system automatically detects, captures, and compares plates against a whitelist, blacklist, or unknown and can perform custom responses for each of them. The system automatically creates a video and snapshot of each plate which can be searched in the database. Several variables must be considered to reliably capture plates. Follow these rules and you’ll reliably capture plates.


The Sentry offers the quickest deployment of any mobile surveillance trailer. • Pick the trailer location. • Level the unit with the drop-down levelers. • Deploy the mast. • Turn the power on. After a 2-minute start-up, the system will be recording and the live video will be accessible with smartphones and remote computers.


The Sentry-Pro system includes an on-site NVR (network video recorder) which records and stores 4K video. The NVR is connected to a Mobile Hotspot which requires a wireless data service. Live viewing, video playback, and remote motion alerts are all provided by this Hotspot which is equipped with a data card from a national cellular provider. We provide monthly data service through T-Mobile. If you prefer to use another cellular provider, their service will work with the hotspot but we will be limited in our ability to help you complete setup and configuration.

User Access

The Sentry-Pro video system can be accessed from anywhere you have cell service or access to the internet. Using your smartphone or PC, you can view live video from multiple cameras and perform multi-camera video playback on demand. Multiple users can be granted access to the system. Each user is given their own login credentials and can be limited to selected cameras and what features they can use.

Video Storage

The Sentry comes equipped to store 4 weeks of continuous 4K live video from all cameras. Total storage time can be expanded by adding more hard drive space. If you have a need for longer storage, give us a call and we’ll be glad to calculate the storage needed.

Managing the System

The Sentry-Pro is equipped with our advanced Cyber Secure surveillance system. The system's advanced AI allows each camera to be programmed for special detection events that trigger custom alerts and responses all in real-time! Be proactive and monitor the system live or don’t worry about a thing and wait for a custom alert to let you know that your attention is needed. You decide how you want to use the system and we’ll program it to do just that.

Live Monitoring & Dispatch

When your application needs a live response, our video monitoring service is the solution. For less than $1 per hour, our 24-hour monitoring service provides real-time response to events on site. The Sentry communicates alarm conditions instantly to our monitoring center. Our operators respond live with warning messages, and sirens. If needed, they dispatch the local police or private security services, providing a visual description of the suspects and their location. This service offers the highest level of deterrence and response in the security industry.

Why we use Tilt-up No-sway Masts

There are two types of masts which the cameras are mounted, telescoping and tilt-up. The most common is the telescoping mast. They come in a variety of manual crank and powered versions. We prefer the tilt-up mast for several very important reasons. First the telescoping masts have a big design flaw. They sway, they sway in the wind a lot. Some even require support guide wires from the top of the mast to the trailer frame just to stabilize it. The real problem is when a PTZ camera is zoomed in to a target area and the mast sways half an inch, the zoomed in view ways 2 to 3 feet horizontally. This makes AI human detection less reliable, less effective and the video quality suffers. Our tilt-up mast has no such problems with the wind, our single piece no-sway mast puts the cameras at the 18 foot height as others, without all the wiggle. Tilt-up masts require less moving parts and deploys quickly and reliably with our hand crank design, simple and reliable.
