Intelligent Video Monitoring for Your Business Part 2.3
November 12, 2021
Your inventory is constantly exposed. Millions of dollars left out, on exhibit for the elements and to intruders. Not to mention your auto parts inventory.
Fully protecting your auto dealership may be simpler and less costly than it sounds. In a traditional surveillance scenario, there’s just one key element missing. Human protection!
Not guards (though, now they don’t have to sit and watch a screen all day anymore!).
We’re talking about Intelligent Video Monitoring (IVM). The difference in this new technology is actually a very non-tech element: 24/7 video verification by trained, human professionals. And, if you don’t already have security cameras, we can help with that, too.
Now, first responders can be on-site quicker than ever before!
Surveying Your Auto Dealership
When our security experts survey your dealership, they’ll be searching for the most strategic placement of your security cameras. We’ll ask you about your day-to-day practices, overnight protocols, your inventory, and any other relevant factors.
Further, we work with one of the top security camera makers on the market, SightLogix. Their smart, thermal cameras are reliable even in the toughest outdoor conditions. They see heat vs. light which makes them excellent human detectors. They can see in the toughest scenarios: in the dark, with the bright sun beating down on them and even water reflections.
And, the pièce de résistance, there is an audio deterrent that is programmed to “speak” to unwanted trespassers. That’ll scare them off in a hurry!
Their range is enormous, exceeding hundreds of meters. They were essentially built with outdoor scenarios just like your auto dealership in mind, for when you HAVE to know the very instant an actual event (not just motion from animals or other distractions) occurs.
Geospatial analytics, automatic stabilization, and highly accurate filters. Armed and dangerous, we can then look at quality over quantity with the goal of healthy coverage using only as much equipment as needed. Nothing more.
BONUS PERK: Recordings during business hours can be analyzed to track employee and customer behaviors and patterns. Use the data to optimize the layout of your showroom.
Other Measures to Protect Your Auto Dealership
It never hurts to take ancillary measures to protect your lot. Below are a few measures that combine well with proper electronic security.
- Security guards are a great complement to your Intelligent Video Monitoring system but not necessary or required.
- Create a single point of entry and exit.
- Posting warning signs re: trespassing and surveillance utilized throughout your property.
- Motion detected lighting – you likely already have your fixed lighting under control. We can help with motion-detected lighting. This is also a great one-two punch with cameras (even those with night vision).
- Install hidden GPS tracking devices and geofencing alerts on vehicles.
- Keep all dealer keys and plates safely locked away. Lock up service customer keys as well.
- Track employees, customers, and other visitors with IVM.
