Protect Your Dealership from Asset Theft and Vandalism

Automotive, RV and equipment dealerships are all attractive targets for would-be thieves, vandals and organized crime. 

Keeping the dealership compound, parts warehouse, storage areas, office and repair shop, all secure can be a big challenge.

Dealerships appeal to criminals who are looking to steal vehicles and to get hold of valuable vehicle parts such as catalytic converters, air bags, navigation systems, pick-up truck tailgates, tires, rims, and in most cases the damage they do to the vehicle to rip these items out can cost many thousands of dollars in repairs. 

These types of losses can not only have a big impact on revenues, but also on dealership insurance rates. So I recommend using an integrated and verified security system that is so highly effective at catching criminals, that it becomes a criminal deterrent and reduces your risk substantially.

Dealership security is one of our specialities at Sonitrol Western Canada. Implementing the best preventative security measures will save you money in the long run, and help reduce your vulnerability and protect your assets from thieves and vandals. 


An Integrated And Verified Security Solution

You can protect your dealership and all its assets by implementing a combination of verified audio and video security.  This security solution utilizes the very latest audio and CCTV verified technology that is guaranteed to catch criminals before they gain access to your dealership.

SonaVision Verified CCTV Video can be installed surrounding the perimeter of your compound. When criminals attempt a break-in, our Central Monitoring Station will be notified immediately through our unique push video security technology.   The moment a criminal attempts to breach the compound our professional operators will verify that the alarm is legitimate and then dispatch the Police, resulting in a criminal capture before the thief gains access to your assets.  

In the event that a savvy criminal attempts to gain access to the buildings our highly sensitive audio sensors will allow our Central Monitors 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 realized we should start counting in 1977. That's why most criminals don't even attempt to break into Sonitrol protected compounds and facilities.

Some additional benefits to using Sonitrol security for your dealership, include reducing your false alarm rates to near zero as all Sonitrol security alarms are verified and checked by an operator at our central monitoring station.  Additionally, our CCTV security cameras can also be used to prevent employee theft during work time, and management can supervise and video record shipments and deliveries locally and remotely as they are viewed on the Internet.
