Car theft is a concern for many people, so imagine if you were responsible for a whole load of them. Car dealer P. Christensen in Denmark knows this headache from personal experience, suffering a number of thefts from their fenced area. It was time to ramp up security, so they turned to Telesikring, the largest private-owned security company in Denmark, for a perimeter detection solution. Telesikring upgraded security with a solution using Hikvision surveillance cameras.
Despite existing security measures like electric fences and burglar alarms, the car dealership was still experiencing thefts. Thieves were managing to come up with increasingly imaginative ways to beat the system – like crawling over fences and even digging underneath them.
They stole all sorts of items, including wheels and catalysts from the cars and vans exhibited at the site. These represent quite some value, and the cost of these losses was mounting up.
They needed a solution which could work for them in all sorts of weather conditions and in the dead of night – the most vulnerable time. The premises have some quite remote outlying areas, which were also particularly at risk.
