The answer to combat rising crime and save costs

Over time, the deterrence factor of unmonitored surveillance cameras has become marginalized. Criminals are no longer put off by cameras and realize video images are not investigated by law enforcement. Security guards are an immediate, onsite solution, but they are expensive and contracted only to observe and report. They do not physically engage intruders, greatly limiting their effectiveness.

There were 942,173 vehicles stolen in 2022, up nearly 30% since 2019. Compounding the outright theft of automobiles is the soaring wave of car part thefts, particularly of catalytic converters thefts. According to insurance claims, that jumped from 16,660 cases in 2020 to a staggering 64,701 in 2022 — a crime that can take as little as 30 seconds.

A large percentage of these thefts take place at car dealerships, which suffer substantial financial losses as the result of stolen cars and parts, lost personnel time and rising insurance costs. The bottom line: it’s a loss of sales and revenue.
