The Best Video Surveillance to Protect Dealerships

oct auto dealership blog graphic 2022

On August 25, 2022, KDVR in Sheridan, Colorado, reported a story on a dealership that had a Bentley and three other high-value cars stolen right off the lot. A group of individuals broke into the office, rummaged around for the keys, and then drove away with the cars. And this was not the first time this has happened at the location. The dealership had two other very recent incidents, one four weeks prior and the other just two weeks before this incident. 

And it is all on video.

While the video is undoubtedly aiding law enforcement in their pursuit of the suspects, it was obviously not enough to stop the crime before it happened. 

Video Surveillance Simply Isn’t Enough to Protect your Dealership

With most of your inventory located outside, always-on display to the public, your dealership is always at risk for incidents of theft, just like the one you just read. This dealership had video surveillance – so why were the culprits able to successfully commit the crime and escape? 

Typical CCTV surveillance systems only record footage that is either accessible remotely through cloud-based technology or stored for later viewing, which means they can just show you who or what is tripping an alarm at your dealership. There isn’t too much one can do other than to see and record the security event happening and alert the authorities – meaning significant time for criminal activity to take place while you watch and wait on law enforcement to arrive on the scene. 

Imagine Having a Solution that can:

  • Prevent dealership crime in real-time
  • Increase criminal apprehension rates
  • Protect your property, business, and inventory
  • Be cost-effective
  • Expand your visibility

Remote Guard Intervention is a comprehensive, monitored video solution that takes security a step further because the system collects audio and visual data, checks for irregularities to secure the dealership’s perimeter, and provides mobile/remote access to live and recorded audio and video. Trained security operators can then intervene through the use of live, two-way audio talk-down features that deter trespassing and theft. This comprehensive intervention solution will increase the likelihood of priority police response, minimize losses, and increase apprehension rates.

The Smart, Affordable Solution

Remote Video Guarding is a solution that is proven effective across many industries. Remote guard intervention allows security operators to catch intruders in the act, verbally warn, alert law enforcement for priority response, and monitor the situation in real time. In most cases, remote guard intervention can get the intruder to leave the property before law enforcement arrives. Remote guard intervention can add immeasurable value to your peace of mind and your dealership’s overall security.

  • It deters criminal activity and minimizes losses.
  • It increases apprehension rates and the likelihood of priority police response.
  • It offers trained operator support – meaning less headache for you!

You know the anxiety that follows in knowing the crime was preventable. Having video intervention via Live Remote Guarding by trained operators eliminates this anxiety because any situation is immediately handled. If you ever require any kind of support, operators are always there to assist.
