Surveillance Camera Tips for Your Car Wash

From false claims made by disgruntled customers to late night vandalism, there are all sorts of reasons you want 24-hour surveillance at your car wash. It can also be a powerful deterrent to help prevent crimes at the car wash that could hurt your brand reputation in the community. Here are a few things you should know about the types of surveillance cameras that are available.

  • High resolution – There has been a massive leap in image quality for surveillance cameras in recent years. A clear picture can make the difference between having clear evidence or a blurry picture that may or may not be the person in question.

  • Zoom – Some lenses can be adjusted so to show a wider area or zoom in on the details. If you monitor the cameras remotely when you get an alert during off hours, this can allow you to get a closer look at what’s going on, so you know if you have to get the authorities involved.

  • Motion sensors – Motion sensors can turn on lights to scare away criminals, but they can also be used to alert you or a team member when there is someone in a place they should not be afterhours.

  • Low-light cameras – Low-light cameras allow you to get clearer visuals even if something happens in a part of the property that isn’t lit up as well. It’s no replacement for security lights that come on with the motion sensors, but it could help identify someone if they find a less bright portion of the property.

  • Weather sealed – Depending on where your facility is located, you may want to consider a camera that is rated for extreme weather. Any outdoor camera is going to have some resistance to the elements, but a weather sealed lens may be able to take a beating and still provide you with footage of what happened during a weather event, so you can report it to your insurance company.
