Today we are going to answer the question ‘Can I See My Property Without Being There?’ At Loc-Doc Security, our Mission is to help you protect your people and your property. We recently had a customer that experienced people dumping trash in their parking lot along with a string of car break ins. This can be a stressful and costly situation for business owners and property managers. Having to pay for trash clean up can add up if it becomes a popular un monitored dumping ground. We can learn from this experience by sharing how we helped solve our customers problem and how to protect your business from trash dumping and being vandalized!
Problem: A Large Retail Center had people dumping trash after hours and a rise of Car Break Ins.
Solution: A Cloud Based Camera System that can be seen and monitored from anywhere!
Question 1: What Areas Do You Want To Focus On Most?
One of the first things to do is decide what areas to focus on. Is this prevention? Is your focus on a specific area? A PTZ Camera can Pan Tilt and Zoom and is a great option to be able to zoom in on license plates or on a trespasser.
Question 2: What Length of Retention Are You Looking For?
The next step would be to decide how long you want to store your camera footage in the cloud. The range is from 3 days to 180 days. We recommend and most businesses choose 14 days of storage. It’s easy to use whether on your mobile phone with an app, a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
Question 3: How Do You Know If Something Happens?
One of the great things is that you can choose! It’s easy to set Motion Alerts for certain times of the day. There is also Line Crossing that detects when areas are breached and can notify you in real-time. One feature that is really beneficial is object or people counting. This is especially helpful in retail locations. You can easily identify how many people visited a location, your peak business hours, and how often consumers passed a display. You can also reduce vandalism, trash dumping, and break-ins by sending alerts when an individual or vehicle stays in one place too long with Loitering analytic.
Question 4: How Can I See My Property from Anywhere?
We recommend one of the best products in the industry for viewing your property remotely from a mobile device on an easy to use app, tablet, or computer. You also have the ability to view multiple locations from one screen. The best part is that it is all stored in the cloud! There is no DVR or designated computer that holds all the footage. Because footage lives in the cloud, you can easily view your property in real time from home, at the pool, on vacation, or even while traveling internationally.
All of these benefits were the winning solution that made the decision easy for our customer to protect their people and their property. We can help you protect your people and property with a cloud based camera system. Book a free evaluation with our team below!
