I know many of you are intrigued by cellular cameras. The idea of a camera texting or emailing you pictures as they are taken is extremely appealing. More than anything, using this for security cameras can greatly assist in dealing with thieves, vandals and trespassers.
One of our customers sent me an email this week about what the Scoutguard SG580M has done for his business. I thought you would find this interesting…
I just wanted to take a quick minute to tell you about our amazing success with the cellular Scoutguard SG580M. We operate an Automotive Recycling Facility in Colorado. Theft is always a part of our business and we had no way to get the upper hand on our clever thieves.
We had used other hunting cameras in the past with some success but nothing can compare to the cellular technology. I recently purchased the Scoutguard SG580M for use in our yard. Specifically at night when all of the break-ins occur.
A few weeks of trial and error with the camera and it’s location we learned where our thief was entering our property. We set up our camera in a spot that was along his walking route. Early Monday morning, 7/25/2011 at approximately 1:00 am I received a text from the camera while I was at home sleeping!
It was clear and obvious what it sent me, a nice picture of our intruder.
To make a long story short, the police had him in custody within an hour of that text being sent. It is amazing that I don’t have to waist my time doing night patrols anymore. I have a very reliable tool doing it for me.
