“We are currently using a different remote service. Their response time is very slow. We have a 30 camera system. We had an attempted break in last night. It took them 15 minutes to call us. 15 minutes is way too long with people with crowbars.”
– Las Vegas shopping center manager

This Las Vegas shopping center manager is not a Stealth Monitoring client. Another commercial property also didn’t have proactive remote camera system and suffered an expensive crime.
Burglars hit a Las Vegas Yamaha dealership. The dealership was not a Stealth remote camera system client. According to the surveillance footage, eight masked suspects threw rocks at a display window until it broke. Three burglars entered the Yamaha dealership showroom. The thieves took four motorbikes. The whole burglary took less than two minutes.
The Yamaha dealership manager said the burglary cost them $30,000 – $40,000. Three bikes were severely damaged and could no longer be sold. The manager said that the suspects looked like they were in early teens or younger. A few months prior to this incident, the Yamaha dealership was vandalized. This same Yamaha dealership experienced three burglaries in less than a year.
The Yamaha dealership planned on increasing security.

Criminals stuff trash bags full of electronics. Thieves steal 42 guns from a gun shop and shooting range. Bank robbers make a clean getaway. All these incidents had surveillance cameras and videos. But they did not have a monitored remote camera system and police could not be called while the crimes were in progress.
