"I have a problem with bums camping out in my parking lot, jumping the wall in to my court yard, stair well etc. I love the audio announcement feature. I think that would keep them moving some place else, more beneficial than me calling the police waiting 3 hours and then be told they can’t do anything."

This office property is a Stealth Monitoring client. The following multifamily apartment unfortunately isn't. The parking garage didn't have proactive live video surveillance and suffered an expensive crime.
A Florida International University student was fatally shot at multifamily apartment complex parking garage. The multifamily apartment complex was located four blocks from the university. Miami-Dade police said that this was an isolated incident.
The shooting happened on the third floor of the parking garage. The multifamily apartment complex said that they would increase security after the shooting. Residents were told that wireless surveillance systems would be installed at the parking garage. The surveillance camera installation had not happened at the time of the crime.

Solar Panel Theft and Crime Increases. Solar panel theft has been called the "crime of the future" with expensive stolen equipment being sold on eBay, craigslist, and elsewhere from California to Canada. Solar plant theft is an increasing problem for the solar industry. Since 2011, solar panel prices and installation fees have decreased. Solar panel availability increased simultaneously. Major businesses and cities have mandated the use of solar panels. This shift will lead to more solar plants and an increase of solar panel theft or property vandalism.
Virtual Security Service or a Security Guard? Property owners have a choice between a virtual security service and an on-site security guard. Many businesses and property managers have found that virtual surveillance is a superior solution for their shopping center, office building, flex space, warehouse, or industrial property. They have replaced traditional property security guards with live video monitoring. There are multiple benefits to using virtual surveillance. Outsourced services can be more reliable, offer more coverage, be more affordable, and have less liability compared to security guards and patrols.
