Surveillance Cameras

Surveillance concept word cloud background We are experts in providing cost effective evidence quality surveillance cameras for homes and businesses. Surveillance cameras can be overt or covert, indoor or outdoor, stationary or moving, and all have their own individual characteristics enabling you to choose a tailor-made solution for your particular needs. Here are a few examples of how client’s have successfully used surveillance cameras:
  • Covert Surveillance Cameras Protect Renters
  • Do you suspect your landlord is coming into your home without proper notice? Oregon has very specific laws governing when a landlord can enter rental property and when it is legally prohibited. If you suspect your landlord is violating the law, you can often sue for damages but to win your case in court or negotiate an out of court settlement, you need evidence. We can help you set up covert video cameras that will provide you with peace of mind and give you the evidence you need. If necessary, we can also testify in court on your behalf, but usually just the fact that you have video evidence gathered by a licensed investigator who is ready and willing to testify in court, is enough for you to negotiate a settlement with your landlord.
  • Covert Surveillance Cameras For Roommates
  • Is a roommate sneaking into your private area and doing who know what? If you share a home with others you might suspect that roommates are sneaking into your bedroom or other private area for nefarious purposes. Maybe they are just rummaging around to see what you have in your room, maybe they are getting into your personal property, and in some cases they might be doing some real creepy things. You have the right to know what is going on. Covert video surveillance will let you know who is trespassing and what they are doing. This information will help you decide how to take the best course of action.
  • Surveillance Cameras For Business
  • There are many reasons that businesses, both large and small, can benefit from a well designed video surveillance system. As a business owner you have the right to know what is going on.
  1. Theft Prevention
  2. An overt surveillance system puts employees on notice that their actions are being watched and helps deter thefts. If something is stolen, you want to see who took it, when they took it and where they went. With that information, you can take the appropriate action and can implement procedures to keep it from recurring.
  3. Litigation
  4. In today’s litigious world if someone is hurt or injured on your property, you will likely be sued. Depending on the nature of the incident your legal costs could be many thousands of dollars. Video surveillance can monitor your employees. If there is an accident, video surveillance can help determine if it’s your company’s responsibility, someone else’s carelessness or an attempt to commit fraud.
  5. Employee Productivity
  6. Monitoring inside your facility will verify shifts starting and ending on time, smoke breaks, and may even make the water cooler the last place to hide. Good employees who always do the right thing will appreciate knowing that their good work is noted. Video surveillance can provide incentive for marginal employees to improve and can give you rock-solid evidence when you need to take personnel actions.
Video surveillance can also help on those occasions when “strange things” happen in the work place. Consider this real life example:
Several employees of a business complained that someone was eating food which they placed in an employee lunch room refrigerator. This was not just a case of a few stolen sandwiches. Over several months employees noticed that someone would take a few bites from their food and leave the rest. Gross! Who wants to eat their lunch when some stranger has taken bites out of it? The manager set up covert video surveillance. It didn’t take long for the food thief to show up. The video showed one employee repeatedly opening the refrigerator and helping herself to other employee’s food. This information allowed the manager to confront the employee. It was discovered that this employee had an eating disorder and the manager helped her get the medical help she needed. As a business owner you have the absolute right to know what is going on in your business.
