Live Monitoring for Automotive Dealerships: The iDter Way to Secure Your Inventory

Updated: Apr 2

Proactive, live video monitoring from iDter is a game-changer for protecting vehicles and property from theft and vandalism at automotive dealerships. 

Picture this: an intruder climbs the perimeter fence and attempts to breach the parking area for new vehicles. Immediately they are faced with blasts of flood lights; intimidating voice-down messages and audio sound effects; blinding strobes of red and blue LEDs; and piercing 120 dB sirens.

Live camera monitoring stops intruders instantly

Within seconds, the perpetrator leaves the site. That’s just what happened here in an actual deterrence at an automotive dealership with iDter’s live video monitoring system with fully-automated, proactive deterrence. 

We’re not exactly sure what the intruder was doing, lassoing a light fixture and trying to pull the housing down. However, they stopped short and exited immediately – proof positive of the value of deterring trespassers and stopping crime before it happens.

There’s so much at stake for automotive dealerships. Thieves not only target autos, but tools, equipment, fuel and other high-priced assets. Loitering and vandalism raise the issue of general safety around the premises—and live monitoring can put a stop to it before an incident or loss occurs. 

Video surveillance makes camera monitoring smarter

Live video surveillance with AI from iDter uses proven algorithms in Niō Guardian cameras to quickly detect both intrusion and persistent loitering at automotive dealerships. Niō Guardian nodes are strategically located to cover every square foot of an automotive dealership’s outdoor areas. These units consist of a powerful 4K camera with wide-angle lens, multiple motion detectors, omni-directional microphone and quad-core intelligence.

Upon stepping within the field of view of the cameras, intruders are confronted with the 10,000 lumens of multi-directional LED floodlights, blinding strobes of red and blue LEDs, piercing sirens, situation-appropriate voice-down warning messages and intimidating sound effects. The Niō Guardian devices are typically configured to orchestrate multiple units to simultaneous confront an intruder with deterrence response so there is no safe haven on the property.

Intrusions are detected, immediately verified on video and alerts with event recordings sent to iPhone, iPad or Android phone. Events are live monitored to ensure the actions were successful, and if not, a video verified alarm is sent to a UL Listed central monitoring station to dispatch authorities through 911 operators. 

iDter protects automotive dealerships with immediate detection and deterrence. Within seconds and in more than 98% of breaches – intruders exit in seconds.
