Protect Outdoor Assets at Logistics Hubs and Commercial Properties

Outdoor Assets

Outdoor assets such as HVAC units, cars, trucks, shipping containers, vans, warehouses, construction equipment, and inventory are easy targets for vandalism and theft. That is why commercial property security is important.

How can I increase my security for my outdoor assets?

Vandals and thieves can be persistent. Because of this, you may want to increase your commercial security for your outdoor assets. A customized outdoor asset protection solution can help protect corporate campuses,  office buildings, flex spaces, residential apartments, car dealerships, self-storage facilities, golf courses, parks, and other recreational areas.

The easiest commercial security solution is to install or improve a fence. A fence serves as a physical barrier that makes it difficult for vandals and thieves to gain access to your commercial site.

A second way to protect your outdoor assets is to have an on-site security guard. Security guards can help deter suspicious and criminal activity. Criminals are less likely to commit a crime if they feel that the may get caught or identified. Despite the benefits of a security guard, this security solution does have its drawbacks. A security guard can only be at one place at a time. Smart criminals are aware of this and may watch for behavioral and patrol patterns. They can easily strike when the security guard is not around. Security guards can also be a liability for a commercial property if they are not prepared, lack proper training, or receive/cause injury.

Remote video surveillance cameras and monitoring is a cost-effective solution to protect your outdoor assets. Surveillance cameras can be strategically placed to watch gates, outdoor assets, access points, roofs, parking lots, parking garages, alleys, storage facilities, swimming pools and dumpsters.

A trained UCIT surveillance operator can virtually watch over multiple areas of your logistics hub and other commercial properties at the same time. HD IP-security cameras can detect a trespasser or suspicious behavior on your site.  Commercial surveillance analysts are trained to look for behavior patterns and assess activity on your property. If the situation requires intervention or investigation, the remote operator can contact local police, an employee, a decision maker, or a security guard on duty. The surveillance camera video allows the monitors to provide descriptions about the suspects and the activity to the security guard and police.
