Parking Lot & Garage Surveillance

SVT has designed and engineered surveillance solutions to prevent Theft with CCTV in your parking lots and parking garages.  Parking lots can benefit greatly from the security provided by security video. Did you know that 80% of crimes at offices, malls, hotels, super markets, casinos and other retail outlets take place in the parking lot? Place cameras near entrances and exits to capture each visitor who comes to your parking lot.

Lawyers make a good living off of liability cases based on a lack of sufficient security surveillance video footage. Businesses that don’t take measures or “reasonable care” in the protection of employees and customers against criminal threats will pay the price. The lawsuits often revolve around lack of sufficient lighting, surveillance and response. Once crime takes a foothold in an area it is difficult to break the trend, but there are some things you can do that can improve security, deter crime, reduce potential liability and make your customers feel safer. It’s interesting to note that where parking lot security surveillance has been implemented, customer use has actually increased because they feel safer. Increased customer use means increased profit which can be used to justify the increased cost related to any security improvements.

Parking Lot and Garage CCTV Installation

When placing cameras, make sure that every area of your parking lot can be seen by your camera’s field of vision. Different types of cameras mounted strategically can interact with one another to create maximum visibility and security.
Parking lots have unique security needs – with risks for both owner and customer. A comprehensive security surveillance video system can help protect both your property and your customers, helping your business remain competitive and your customers satisfied.

Prevent theft – Many thieves see parking lots as potential gold mines with miles and miles of cars or personal property that they can take. Visible security surveillance cameras can help deter thieves from breaking into cars on your lot, and can help aid law enforcement in identifying criminals who do rob cars on your lot. Cameras can also help prevent theft of store property – shopping carts, outdoor displays, tables and chairs, landscaping, etc.
Improve image – Customers are undoubtedly the most essential aspect of many businesses. Keeping your customers happy and giving them a sense of safety and peace of mind when they’re shopping at your business establishes a sense of trust and loyalty.
Liability issues – It’s inevitable that an accident will happen in your parking lot. Whether it’s a car crash, armed robbery, rape, a slip n fall, break in or an errant shopping cart denting cars, security video surveillance is an easy way to avoid costly liability cases.
