According to FBI Crime Data, one burglary happens every 25.7 seconds, approximately 3,300 burglaries per day.
Across North America, spikes in burglaries and break-ins have made businesses more conscious than ever about security, and this factors heavily into choosing a location for their offices. For commercial property owners, security solutions that only provide evidence after-the-fact have little value if criminals can’t be identified.
Proactive security that spots suspicious activity in real time can make all the difference- watch what happened when this group of individuals targeted a Maryland office building, unaware that Stealth’s cameras (and security professionals) caught everything.
At approximately 3:24 in the morning, an alert Stealth security operator observed multiple individuals breaking into a Maryland office complex building. At least three individuals could be seen running towards the building, with two entering at one door while a third attempted accessing other doors before joining them. The security professional immediately contacted local police dispatch to relay the details and description of the activity in progress. Officers responded onsite quickly and successfully apprehended the suspects, taking them into custody without further incident.
Help Protect Your Property and Tenants with Proactive Live Video Monitoring
Commercial property owners know that maintaining a secure environment for tenants and their clients, while also ensuring that exposure to premise liability is minimized, is vital to the overall success of a property. Traditional office surveillance systems simply passively record onsite activity. While this can prove reasonably helpful after an event has occurred, it can also prove difficult to locate and access the exact footage and can be a wash if suspects or their vehicles cannot be clearly seen or identified.
On-site security guards are often expensive, are fallible to human errors, such as inattention and falling asleep, and have limitations associated with their viewpoint and response times.
Stealth’s live video monitoring is a proactive security solution. Our live video surveillance solution is customizable, allows events to be monitored and responded to in real-time, and can save you 25-60% when compared to the costs of traditional security measures. We use a combination of cutting edge video analytics and trained security professionals to observe and respond to suspicious activity and events as they happen.
Our trained security professionals monitor key areas of your property and can sound onsite alarms that typically send trespassers and other unwanted criminals running- but in the event of a scenario like the one above, monitoring operators can also contact local law enforcement, who can respond to your property quickly thanks to our live, detailed, up-to-the-minute descriptions of activity, suspects, and location.
