Bragging on our Back End

Server rooms and all their necessary components can be a real mess (we’ve seen few real horror shows in our years in this business).  Perhaps it is not a necessity for functionality to have neat wires that are clearly labeled and properly laid out, but it sure is nicer to look at, and a whole lot easier to figure out where the problem lies in the event of a failure of a component.

We recently wrapped on a large facility in Central Oregon, and wanted to show off the handiwork of our technicians.  Great job, Keith and Bryce!

Let us know if you’d like us to work our magic and get your facility’s server room sorted and looking pretty too.

The Cannabis Security Difference

In the aftermath of CannaGuard going out of business, we get asked a lot these days what makes us different than the other security options in the area.

1 – We are full-service.  Not only can we provide your ongoing monthly monitoring needs for your security system, we staff fully licensed electricians who can install new systems, service downed equipment, and troubleshoot any issue you have with your security system.

2 – We don’t skimp on products.  There are an overwhelming number of options when it comes to equipment you can use for your cameras, security, and access control.  But with our expertise in this industry for over 20 years, we have tried-and-true relationships with vendors who provide us very high quality equipment.  This means our systems are not the cheapest option.  However, this also means that we can stand behind our systems which do not have nearly as many failures as substandard equipment.  Your security system is not the place to choose the cheapest option, because you really get what you pay for.

3 – We are a one-stop shop.  Our customers only have relationships with us directly.  We won’t sell accounts to funding companies, and then leave our customers dealing with other companies out of state to try to get service.  When you are a Cannabis Security customer, your security needs are taken care of promptly and by knowledgeable staff headquartered in Portland, OR.

Clarification on Relationship with CannaGuard


You may have seen the above press release from CannaGuard of their change in business model to offer franchising naming Cannabis Security as now entering into a partnership with CannaGuard.  We would like to clarify that Cannabis Security is a separate entity from CannaGuard, that we have been in business independently from CannaGuard since our inception in 2015, and we have not entered into nor agreed to any franchise arrangement with CannaGuard.  Franchising implies we are paying CannaGuard royalties and that we are a branch of their company, and it is important to us to clarify that our company is and always has been independently owned and operated.  Our only business connection is with our sister company – Pixel Security, which has been in the security system business in Oregon and Washington since 2005.


Cannabis Security continues to offer the highest quality systems and exemplary customer service to our clients.  If you’d like a quote on a new security system, or on what options we offer for monitoring and ongoing service, please contact Cannabis Security today.
