COLUMBIA, S.C.—Although power was down in the northeast in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, solar-powered Electric Guard Dog security systems weathered the storm, according to a company statement.

Customer service at EGD reported that their two largest customers in the Northeast, who have a combined 15 sites in the affected areas, said their perimeter systems worked without issue at all sites.

The day after Hurricane Sandy, Electric Guard Dog technicians across the U.S. were told they might be deployed to the Northeast to help restore security for those affected by the superstorm as quickly as possible, and at no cost to customers.

“We wanted them to know immediately that we were with them, all the way,” Jack DeMao, CEO of EGD, said in a company statement. “We made a donation to the Red Cross to support relief efforts, absorbed the cost of rebuilding our security systems and we planned to pull overtime until all systems were up and operational again. It was the right thing to do.”
