Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Early in the morning on August 21st, a Secure Pacific video surveillance system detected a burglary at a restaurant in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne neighborhood. Video footage clearly shows the intruder entering the restaurant, tampering with the security system, and preparing to burglarize the establishment.
At 12:45 a.m., Secure Pacific’s Verification Center received an alarm on the back kitchen door of the restaurant. Using video verification, the operator saw an intruder enter and dispatched Seattle PD immediately. Although the man was able to gain entry by prying open the door with a crowbar, the prompt law enforcement response forced him out of the restaurant and he was eventually apprehended after a short foot chase.
Thanks to the alarm system’s accuracy and the operator’s fast response, the restaurant suffered minimal damage and loss, and intruder was arrested and booked into the King County Jail on burglary charges.
Restaurants face distinct security challenges. In order to effectively monitor a restaurant, a video verification alarm system must account for the building’s unique layout and provide comprehensive coverage. It is important that restaurant security systems not only deter theft, but also alert the proper authorities to an intrusion when it occurs. Successful restaurateurs recognize the value in creating a safe, secure environment for both patrons and employees.
In addition to intrusion detection, temperature monitoring devices can also prove invaluable by notifying managers of an equipment failure and ensuring that food and other restaurant supplies do not spoil.
