Points-of-sale (cash registers) can be integrated into your video surveillance system synchronizing video records of activity around registers with detailed information of every transaction performed by your staff.  These systems are proven to expose and reduce theft committed by both customers and staff.  They also provide indisputable evidence in situations where customers insist incorrect change has been given them.

Crime Prevention:

It is proven that visible quality video surveillance equipment can be enough to deter criminals from engaging in illegal activity within that premises.  Our surveillance systems can help keep them out of your store.  If they do come in, you’ll get a clear picture of who they are.


Our video surveillance systems combined with POS integration technology help to reduce loss due to missed “bottom of the basket” items, customer and employee theft as well as increase your ability to identify safety hazards.  Fraudulent liability claims can also be quickly resolved by presenting powerful video evidence.


Car dealerships can greatly benefit from video surveillance due to high values of the inventory and its susceptibility to theft and damage.  Dealerships are unique in that the bulk of the inventory is “warehoused” in easily accessed outdoor lots.

Its estimated that over 170,000 vehicles are stolen each year in Canada; that’s one every 3 minutes.  Car dealerships are prime targets, and not only for the cars, but their parts as well.  Inadequately protected dealerships are operating at their own risk.

Highly sophisticated criminal organizations operating in Canada are contributing to the alarming rise in auto-thefts over the past decade.   High profits and low risk motivate these thieves to undertake increasingly brazen schemes targeting seemingly secure victims.  Dealership lots are a preferred picking ground.

While this is enough to guard against, there is also an escalation of incidents involving service centre part theft from both internal and other parties.  In addition, Mechanics tools that go missing, whether from theft or “borrowing” are costly to replace, contribute to lost productivity and cause stress.
