Industrial Security System Protects Truck Fleet from Thieves

Posted by Amy Hite on May 18, 2017

An industrial security system can protect industrial properties, logistic hubs, construction sites, and warehouses from vandalism and theft. Loss of cargo and equipment can make a commercial site less attractive to current and potential customers. As a result, the commercial or private real estate company may lose a significant amount of revenue annually.

At 1:54, a UCIT industrial security system operator observes two individuals at a client’s property. The potential auto thieves walk toward a fleet of trucks. Local authorities are notified about the suspicious activity. Thefts normally occur at night. Common things that are stolen are cargo, car parts (such as catalytic converters, wheels, and tires), GPS systems, or the whole car/truck. There are fewer witnesses during nighttime criminal activity. Also, on-site security guards can’t be in multiple places at once. This decreases the likelihood of a thief’s capture and arrest.

The UCIT security systems operator contacts the local authorities. Live video evidence verifies an event as a crime in progress. This helps decrease police response times.

A UCIT industrial security system operator zooms in on the criminal activity with a PTZ outdoor surveillance camera. PTZ cameras can identify important features such as locations, license plates, clothing, and facial appearance.

Responding police officers arrive at the industrial site in seven minutes. One of the suspects tries to hide under one of the trucks. The hiding trespasser is found by the police. Both suspects are arrested.
