Upgrading Automotive Dealership Security: Introducing iDter's Video Security Solutions

Updated: Jan 16

Statistics tell the story: auto theft is rising nationwide and reached near-record highs in 2023, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). A report released by NICB revealed that nearly 500,000 vehicles were reported stolen during the first half of 2023. 


Why You Need Automotive Dealership Security 


For automotive dealerships, the stakes are particularly high. Thieves are targeting new and used vehicles as well as autos under repair, causing a wide range of potential liability issues for these commercial businesses and their customers. Catalytic converters, navigation systems, tools, equipment and even fuel are vulnerable assets that also require security protection.


iDter’s Video Security Solutions Proactively Deter Auto Theft


iDter is providing automotive dealership security to stop vehicle and asset theft in its tracks with its total intrusion deterrence and monitoring solution featuring Niō Guardians. Niō Guardians are positioned around the automotive dealership to detect intrusion with a powerful high-resolution camera with wide-angle lens, multiple motion detectors, quad-core computer intelligence, omni-directional speakers, microphone and powerful LED lights for illumination and red/blue strobing.  


Stop Dealership Thieves Before They Make a Move


When a late-night intruder is detected, Niō activates an array of programmable deterrence measures, including instantaneous illumination of 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. During the early evening hours, Niō has welcoming messages explaining the dealership is closed: “Feel free to browse our inventory, we use lights and cameras for your safety and ours.” Other audio deterrence messages can be more direct and stern, advising after-hours visitors to leave the business before authorities intervene. 


Events are monitored in real-time to ensure deterrence actions were successful, and if not, a video verified alarm is sent to a UL Listed, Five-Diamond Certified central station for dispatch of authorities through 911 operators.  


iDter: The Complete Solution for Automotive Dealership Security


Niō node guardian and protector technology is exclusive to iDter and features artificial intelligence (AI) deep-learning; Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud video storage; and video-verified monitoring with UL 827 dispatch to PSAP.  Intrusions detected by Niō are verified and alerts with event recordings sent to iPhone, iPad or Android devices for easy mobile management. iDter products are fully NDAA compliant, ETL listed and FCC certified.
