Couple Breaks into Parking Garage Equipment Room

Posted by Blake Mitchell on Apr 20, 2021

Shortly before 4:00 a.m., a Stealth Monitoring security operator saw two people trying to access the gate to an apartment parking garage. Our operator called to dispatch local police. Once inside the garage, the couple briefly entered a room housing electrical equipment, including the NVR that stores recorded video footage.

Responding officers arrived on the property within minutes, just as the pair was diving into the trash chute.

Maintaining security in your parking garage can be a great challenge. After all, one in 10 crimes takes place in parking garages, according to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics. Besides vehicles, parking garages often store other valuable assets such as bicycles and expensive electrical equipment.

Help keep your parking structure safe with a proactive security solution like live video monitoring. Trained security operators monitor analytics-based cameras to watch your property when you’re not there. If they see something, they can quickly assess the situation and act in real time. That includes using audio speakers to warn the trespassers they are being watched, contacting security patrols and calling to dispatch police.

Unlike security guards who can only be in one place at a time and see just what is in front of them, our operators can cover multiple areas of the property simultaneously. We can work with existing guard patrols or replace them, all while saving you up to 60% on your security expenses.
