One of the most important investments you can make for your business is ensuring safety for your employees and customers. Many businesses have installed indoor security cameras but have overlooked the importance of parking lot security. Vandals, thieves or other potential criminals may not be brave enough to enter a building but find an open parking lot an easy target. Recent Bureau of Justice statistics indicate that over 10 percent of property crimes took place in parking lots or garages. That’s why it’s in your best interest to install a security camera system in your parking lot.
Parking Lot Security
Some business owners may be hesitant to invest in a parking lot security camera system because they think it’s unaffordable. This is far from the truth. A professional installer can customize each individual business’s security plan to meet their specific needs. Here at Telephone Connection, we’ll tailor your comprehensive parking lot surveillance system for your particular business and at the same time keep it within your budget.
As experienced installers of IP surveillance camera systems, we hold a Security Contractor Company license from the Texas Department of Public Safety. With your individualized parking lot security plan, our quality closed-circuit television, or CCTV, system will provide only as many cameras as you need to ensure your property is protected. CCTV is a method of using security cameras to monitor and record videos of your property. Among the advantages of a security camera system are deterring vandalism and theft, protecting you from unwarranted liability claims and improving both employee and customer safety.
The security cameras run 24/7 in a CCTV system, so we make it a point to provide ongoing maintenance after we’ve installed it. We use IP surveillance systems that save the digital HD video that the cameras have captured and transferred to a computer. Based on the particular needs of your business, the IP video is either recorded in a LAN, or private network, or saved on a remote server. IP technology allows you to conveniently access your system remotely on your PC from anywhere you happen to be. You can even access your parking lot surveillance system from an Android, iPhone or other mobile device.
Depending on your needs and budget, you can choose from among at least three high-resolution cameras. Higher-resolution cameras will produce clearer images and videos.
It’s estimated that incidents of crime have dropped over 50 percent in parking lots where security systems have been installed. When a thief, vandal or other potential criminal sees a camera, they’re likely to avoid carrying out their crime. In the unfortunate event a crime does occur, however, you have excellent recorded evidence with your security system.
Your business, employees and customers are much too valuable to risk injury or property damage as a result of a crime occurring in an unprotected parking lot. Contact Telephone Connection today to get your free parking lot security consultation.
