Remote Video Solution for the Autohaus Babelsberg

With more than 400 used cars of the Audi und VW brands, the Autohaus is one of the largest car dealerships in the Northeast of Germany. Securitas protects a sales area measuring 30,000 m² and a monitoring area with parking spaces and garage.

The task: Integrated security concept

Until a few years ago, the car dealership relied on a security concept that allowed anyone to walk across the property and cause serious damage. Securitas developed a concept for the customer that ensures the safety of the entire company premises.

The solution: Remote Video Solution

To fulfill this demanding task, the security services provider relies on a modern video and monitoring concept – RVS (Remote Video Solution). Remote Video Solutions are a combination of cutting-edge video technology, an analysis-based monitoring process and the possibility to remotely control activities. In case of need, the Securitas MobilGuards provide support. One of the main challenges was to clearly define the weak points and to adequately protect the large area using cameras. Today, more than 16 IP cameras, one burglar alarm system (EMA, Einbruchmeldeanlage), the connection of the video fire detection system, as well as a team of security officers for control and locking services ensure safety on the premises. The video and burglar alarm technology was supplemented by the installation of a suitable security fence and perfectly matched mobile locking and patrol services. In case of an emergency, the employees initiate intervention procedures.

The customer benefit: Deterring thieves

The number of burglaries has steadily declined. The benefit of this security solution is that thieves can be deterred by video surveillance. Moreover, the model enables quicker response times and reduces costs.

A high level of security and profitability

"After the implementation of Securitas' security solution, we managed to reduce the costs from approx. 50,000 € per year to less than 3,000 € per month – and we are still well protected," says Andreas Bohl, Managing Director at the Autohaus Babelsberg GmbH & Co. KG.
