CASE STUDY

ART DUNN ALARM COMPANY

Art Dunn Alarm Company in Modesto California provides unique security solutions with results that can be measured in arrests and property protected. Using equipment that is truly wireless they provide video verified intrusion detection almost anywhere even where utilities do not exist- rooftops, construction sites, abandoned property or agricultural areas.

The Challenge

Art Dunn Alarm Company was looking for something unique that would differentiate itself from the competition. Art Dunn began using cameras outside to try and catch people before they broke in. The problem was that everything that moved tripped the cameras. Art came across CheckVideo by reaching out to central stations and found out the camera itself can be the alarm. He could now put the camera outside and filter out everything a motion sensor could detect that wasn’t relevant and have a live view that previously wasn’t available with other solutions.

“With CheckVideo I could do things that you just could not do with any other kind of burglar alarm sensor. Traditionally, burglar alarms are only for intrusion detection, but there are other problems that clients need solving that aren’t just straight burglary. CheckVideo can help solve those problems.”

One incident included a local non-profit theater in downtown modesto, CA. Recently, someone had been smashing the storefront windows during the evening hours without being caught, resulting in thousands of dollars worth of damage.

The Solution

Art Dunn Alarm Company needed a solution for the theater that would catch the vandal if he returned. CheckVideo was installed and the theater could now detect a person outside loitering at night so they could immediately get a patrol car to prevent another expensive window from being broken. Most video systems only see what happens after the fact but CheckVideo’s solution allowed for real-time response.

In the early hours of the following Monday, Labor Day, the vandal returned. The suspect looked at a shadow box in the window with a poster for their upcoming play. This poster became the target of a rock, he stepped back and threw the rock at the window before covering his hand with his sleeve and breaking out more glass.

Play Video

Arrest

The videos of the vandalism arrived in the patrol vehicles within moments of having been recorded and the security service’s patrolmen responded. The suspect was easily identified from the video and the two patrolmen were able to arrest the suspect after he threatened them with a weapon.

CheckVideo’s cloud managed system provides a complete solution that allows quick access to cameras, AI video analytics, and real-time alerts for quick decision making to stop vandalism or theft from occurring.
