XProtect® is where prevention begins
As with any criminal activity, prevention is the preferred method of dealing with vandalism. Central monitoring stations are your first line of defense. These may include stationary and body-worn cameras, audio setups, access control, alarm and analytics systems that detect someone loitering where they shouldn’t be. And if your current preventative measures aren’t enough, the analytical insights you can draw from central monitoring can show you what’s required to do the job.
Detection & deterrence technology
Where vandalism is concerned, there are a range of detection and deterrence options. Most are designed to get security personnel on the scene ASAP. For example:
- Motion detection
- Alarm systems
- Access control systems
- Visitor management
If damage is done, it’s time to stop it from happening again. Here you can lean on video summary systems to reduce a lengthy video footage into short, action-focused versions. For example:
- Facial recognition
- Heat mapping
- Video summary
- Traffic management
Tracking & monitoring
Tracking and monitoring technology offers both reactive and preventative anti-vandal options. Video analytics software allow facility managers and other VMS operators to detect incidents and identify perpetrators. Loitering detection can recognize suspicious activities and alert personnel. Establishing incident patterns is key to long-term vandalism prevention, while the insights gained can also inform security protocols or staff deployment.
