Advanced Light Science Technology and Special Security Systems for Marijuana Grow Facilities and Dispensaries
DigaNET, a premier leader in Cannabis Security, Lighting, and Automation leads the way for those who either cultivate or sell marijuana, it is important that they know how to protect their investment – equipment, inventory, products and above all, their employees. The marijuana industry certainly comes with its own security challenges.
The legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado and Washington introduced a new element for the cannabis industry in the United States – effective security that “fits” with this industry. Medicinal marijuana is legal in 23 states, but is still considered a Schedule 1 controlled substance by the U.S. government which makes growing and selling marijuana illegal under federal law.
This elevates the security situation for marijuana farms and dispensaries to a new level because many banks are reluctant to accept money that is generated from the sale of marijuana, so this has forced the industry to be an all-cash business. This has led to the development of “specialty” security companies for a niche market. Not only do these “specialty” security companies protect product and cash on hand, they are also responsible for securing the perimeter of the property, access control in and out of areas and buildings, monitoring video surveillance and response, monitoring the intrusion detection systems and providing on-going consulting services, they have to constantly monitor the temperature and lighting within the growing facilities.

It is important that marijuana farms and dispensaries consider all possible threats, have state-of-the-art technology as a part of their security master plans and that the security operation is efficient and either minimizes or eliminates any security vulnerability.
We have security plans that are designed to “minimize security exposure and prevent breaches before they even occur. However, in the event that preventative measures fail, the Operational Security Plan is designed to quickly observe, monitor, protect, counter and report any situations that do occur.

SECURING YOUR GROW
Legal marijuana grow operations are often the most targeted locations for crime and theft. Due to the nature of the grow operation, secrecy and security are the best deterrents to potential thefts. Often these sites use only passive security measure like cameras and sensors but these measures are reactive and usually do not deter a crime. Only a security officer can provide an active security element to protect your investment. A single theft can wipe out an entire crop and potentially the loss of tens of thousands of dollars in finished product, but often a theft can damage other expensive property such as irrigation and lighting systems. DigaNET can offer you all your electronic security needs.
