Installing Camera Systems In Your Garage or Lot Can Help Reduce Crime
Theft from cars in parking lots, vandalism of the grounds and unwanted break-ins are all common security issues that make installing security cameras in your parking garage or lot necessary. In fact according to an analysis in the Justice Quarterly surveillance systems were found to be most effective in parking lots, where their use “resulted in a 51% decrease in crime.”
Cars parked in population dense areas such as New York City (especially Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, and the Bronx)—where there are many tourists and visitors who are not local residents—are susceptible to parking lot theft from not just break-ins, but possible criminal activity by employees or valets who work the lots. Cars move in large numbers in and out of your lot. Smaller items found in cars and cash can be taken relatively quickly and without notice. Install closed circuit television (CCTV systems) or security surveillance systems so that you can keep tabs on every single vehicle and deter crimes.
Security Camera Installation Recommendations for Parking Garages and Lots
Where To Install: Whether it is a public lot used by commuters, a private or public parking garage in the city, or a parking lot operated by an auto dealer, cameras should be installed at key access points such as entranceways, exits, gates, stairwells, main doors, emergency call boxes, and panic alarms, to name a few.
What To Install: Total Security suggests using a camera system that both monitors and records with precision and detail. For example, using digital IP security cameras will allow you 24/7 remote access to all security footage, from virtually any location with an internet connection. IP cameras can also capture tiny details and clearly record license plate numbers for cars leaving the lot. In parking garages, light can be dim. It’s recommended to use high definition cameras that operate and record well in low light settings without losing resolution. In large lots such as commuter lots used for trains, in retail or shopping centers, and in airport commuter parking lots, wireless cameras are also a consideration because they can help to reduce the need for wiring and cabling.
But… First Evaluate Your Needs: Especially in multi-level garages and larger lots, they cannot possibly monitor safety and security alone. When you work with an experienced security system installer, they will audit your site and then provide you with a detailed plan and cost estimate that includes the types of cameras recommended, their strategic placement, and even tips of shrubbery/trees to help avoid obstructions. Using an experienced company will help save you money by only installing what you need to get the job done properly.
