With a marked increase in theft and vandalism of valuable equipment assets stored outdoors, it is imperative to have an advanced surveillance solution that can provide police dispatch with quality and actionable information. UAS’s smart cameras with video analytics and clear imaging in all weather conditions distinguish between the smallest of motion events – wind, animals, paper blowing through a yard, etc. – and an actual intruder.

Once an alarm is activated, the outdoor video solution records a clip of the intruder and is transmitted to professionals at UAS’s award-winning, 24/7 monitoring center for verification. Once an intruder is verified, police are notified of a crime-in-progress, which normally results in a priority response. This increase in police response leads to more arrests and reduces or eliminates potential losses. 

“Video surveillance systems with built-in analytics and clear imaging combined with central station verification is essential for these types of properties,” says Scott R. Elkins, president of UAS. “Specifically, video verification is at center stage and of the utmost importance with our solution. When working with police, if we can provide an exact account of the event happening in a yard, it will only increase the likelihood of an arrest and diminish potential damage.”

In addition, the UAS solution gives managers the ability to arm and disarm the systems locally or from an app on their phone, based on when employees are present and not present at the location. In doing so, operators can gain better control of their overall security systems while still allowing for business goals to be met.

“Today, no yard is too complex to effectively protect and monitor. Regardless of size, layout, or equipment, the flexibility and affordability of surveillance technology with our monitoring center, ensures there is a solution for every yard,” says Elkins.
