There are a variety of nuisances that tend to emerge in the summer months — and while not all of them may be crimes, they can certainly compromise the security of your business in addition to costing you money. Here are some of those warm weather nuisances, and ways you can use our security services to deter them.
VAGRANCY AND SQUATTING
Department of Housing and Urban Development statistics show that San Diego has the 4th largest homeless population in the United States. Furthermore, the warm weather of summer tends to aggravate the presence of vagrancy in the streets and around businesses. If you need to ask those who may be squatting outside to move on, our live remote guarding service can help.
The camera uses motion detection to capture outdoor activity; then, it leverages AI to calculate the risk of what’s happening (whether the motion was caused by a person or vehicle). If it was caused by a person, it sends the video to the hub for a live remote guard to intervene. If you have explained that you’d like the guard to address squatters through the built-in speakerphone, the guard can do this. When word spreads that this is what happens outside your business, you’re less likely to experience this nuisance in the future.
LOITERING IN LESS VISIBLE AREAS
If you’ve hired a live security guard to protect your business, he is likely to be stationed near the storefront (where you’re most at risk of the smash-and-grab burglaries we’re seeing throughout California this summer). However, that leaves less visible areas around the business at risk of loitering; after all, even the best security guards can’t be everywhere at once. Although loitering is not classified as a crime in California, it puts you at serious risk of alienating even the most loyal customers. That’s a risk no business can afford as we all work to recover from the effects of the pandemic.
Fortunately, our live remote guarding service can help with this as well. Your security guard can focus on the front of the house, knowing that your live remote guarding will capture any nuisance activity taking place elsewhere.
Reducing loitering can protect your customer base and everything you’ve invested in your business.
San Diego has some of the best summer weather in the nation, and your business stands to benefit from the $7.6 billion in revenue that tourism is expected to bring to the county this summer (source: San Diego Union Tribune). The best way to do this is by making sure you have the security in place to attract new customers and keep your regular customers loyal.
