Rooftop Surveillance System Protects Outdoor Assets

Posted by Rick Charney on February 9, 2018

A customized rooftop surveillance system should have outdoor security cameras that can function in a variety of environmental factors. Stealth's outdoor security cameras can continue to send live surveillance video to our monitoring centers in heavy rains, strong winds, snow, and extreme temperatures. These security cameras will also stream video during the night or in dimly-lit areas.

At 12:21 a.m., a group of juveniles were loitering near a Texas shopping center. The trained shopping center security operator activated the on-site speaker warning. The suspects stayed on the property, so the Stealth operator called the local police. The young trespassers moved away from their initial location.

Responding officers arrived at the shopping center. A police officer made contact with the juveniles and instructed them to sit against the wall. A rooftop surveillance camera showed two juveniles on top of the retail property. The rooftop trespassers came down and were released to their legal guardians, who had been contacted by the police.

Rooftop surveillance can protect HVAC units, appliances, and other outdoor assets, but it can also protect shopping centers from liability issues.

Stealth's rooftop surveillance system has deterred criminal activity at many other shopping centers. In a previous 'Catch of the Month,' a trespasser gained access to a Dallas shopping center rooftop. Stealth helped Dallas Police locate and arrest the suspect.

How Can Rooftop Surveillance Protect My Property From Liability Issues?

A rooftop surveillance system can help shopping center security operators locate any abnormalities. For example, strategic camera placement will help them spot things like ladder instability, exposed wires, holes and other types of damage before anyone gets hurt.

Additionally, rooftop surveillance video can serve as evidence in false claim cases. If someone gets injured on the rooftop, the commercial property manager can prove adequate measures were taken to cordon off dangerous areas.
