The Benefits of Parking Lot Security Cameras

Deploying mobile video surveillance cameras to provide security at parking lots has multiple benefits, from delivering 24/7 protection and high quality digital evidence through to their cost effectiveness and reliability. 

Wireless CCTV LLC, the supplier of the WCCTV LotGuard parking lot security systems, explores the key benefits for deploying surveillance cameras at your retail, dealership, hotel or office parking lots.

Crime and Theft Prevention

Parking Lots are all too often easy targets for thieves, with statistics showing that the majority of crime at retail outlets, malls and offices occurs in the parking lot.

Specifically, over 2 million parking lot crimes are committed each year with over $6B in property loss to those crimes, with a 30% spike in crime rates around the holidays.

WCCTV's LotGuard provides a visible surveillance solution that not only acts as a deterrent to potential thieves and vandals, but also provides reassurance to your guests, customers and employees that their vehicles are protected by a high tech security system.

High Quality Video Evidence

As well as working to deter crime, WCCTV's LotGuard systems store HD quality video (up to 1080p), providing vital evidence that can assist Law Enforcement with criminal investigations.

Evidence captured by security cameras can also be used to assist with any vehicular accidents/hit and runs that may occur on your premises - helping reduce liability claims and improving your businesses reputation.

Cost Effectiveness

The cost of employing security guards to protect parking lots is often prohibitive.

A typical unarmed guard will cost between $12 - $20 per hour depending on state with an armed guard costing $18 -$25 per hour.*

This price does not include factors such as the potential requirement for multiple guards to cover larger lots, the cost of ongoing training, vetting, rest facilities and vehicles - all of which push hourly rates ever upwards - even before public holiday premium rates are taken into consideration.

WCCTV’s LotGuard solutions are often anywhere up to 87% cheaper than the cost of security guards without compromising on quality or results.

Quality and Reliability

Video surveillance provides a more accurate and detailed overview of incidents that occur at parking lots than a security guard is able to.

This includes being able to identify criminal activity in the lowest lighting conditions. Technology such as infrared, thermal imaging and video analytics allow cameras to see things a human eye would find impossible to detect.

A surveillance camera can also view a much wider area than a security guard, and most importantly, WCCTV's LotGuard never loses concentration even for a second.

Our cameras are always attentive, they are ready to stop and catch thieves, vandals and other would-be criminals 24/7. They don’t suffer lapses in concentration or attention fatigue.
