Dealership Security CCTV SonaVision Sonitrol Western Canada

Car dealerships, RV dealerships, and all kinds of vehicle and machinery dealerships, face many different security risks. With open lots, glass showrooms, and service centres filled with valuable inventory - it’s no wonder they become a target for theft and vandalism.

Dealerships are vulnerable not only to break-ins to try and get the keys, but also to theft by stripping vehicle parts such as catalytic converters, air bags, navigation systems, pick-up tailgates, tires, and rims.  You have valuable assets to protect - so security should be top of mind.

Criminals are becoming smarter, and they know police no longer respond to unverified conventional alarms. They know how to exploit unmonitored areas to gain access to more secure areas on your property. That's why dealerships are turning to Sonitrol Western Canada for this exact reason. Don’t rely on security guards who might sleep through the night or even leave the site!

Our Dealership Security Solution consists of a combination of fenced compound security using SonaVision verified video surveillance, and active audio detection to listen out for any attempted building intrusion.


Why Sonitrol Western Canada? The Difference is Verified:

SonaVision Verified CCTV Video can be installed surrounding the perimeter of your compound or to watch specific areas.  Our professional operators are notified of any activity or attempted breach on your compound- and can verify if the break in is legitimate or a false alarm. This keeps your false alarm rates extremely low, and ensures a quick response time from the police  - who can then apprehend the thief, often before they can even gain access to your valuable assets.

In the event that a savvy criminal attempts to gain access to the buildings our highly sensitive audio sensors will allow our Central Monitoring Station to detect a break-in immediately. We have an average 3.5 minute Police response time to the scene of the break-in, and we've apprehended more than 172,000 criminals since we started counting in 1977. 

We can give video access for your own supervision (WCB compliant), so you can record shipments and deliveries and watch job progress and day-to-day work, and avoid internal loss & theft as well.
