Video Guard protects against malicious destruction

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer and the desire to be active outdoors is increasing. As a result, young people are increasingly tempted to enter the grounds of dormant and unobserved construction sites or vacant buildings without authorization in the late evening. This often results in deliberate damage to property. The media report on such cases time and again. In addition to high follow-up costs, leaking hazardous substances or climbing on scaffolding and equipment, for example, pose a major risk to people and the environment. To prevent vandalism and its consequences, Video Guard reliably secures vulnerable locations against unauthorized access.

The summer weather attracts many people outside, especially in the afternoon and evening. Unobserved building sites and empty buildings are then popular destinations for roving groups of young people. This involves climbing on fences, scaffolding and equipment or damaging material. In the case of blind vandalism, the motives are usually purely spontaneous and arise when perpetrators feel unobserved. In addition to damage to construction fences and theft of materials, equipment and walls are often smeared with graffiti paint and permanently damaged, and garbage cans and containers are kicked over. Such actions are not only dangerous for the perpetrators themselves. Accidents that occur in this context often lead to additional financial costs and unpleasant extra work for those responsible for the construction site or premises. Environmental damage – such as leaking diesel tanks and defective gas pipes – is also to be expected.

Against this background, professional surveillance of the site is essential. Video-supported systems are being used more and more frequently, which are both economical and work across the board. With its high-resolution cameras, Video Guard offers comprehensive protection against burglary, vandalism and theft – around the clock, seven days a week. Defined areas are recorded and monitored by high-resolution cameras. If someone enters the premises, the live images are transmitted directly to the staffed alarm center. In the event of any unauthorized activity, the staff there will directly intervene via the loudspeakers integrated into the camera tower and ask the intruders to leave the premises immediately. If this is not complied with, the local police will be informed.
