Nick K. From Bona Brother Automotive Services Prevented 2 Burglaries In Less Than A Month Using AI

“I was at my wit’s end. Our auto shop was experiencing 4-6 burglaries every month or so, and we had tried everything to prevent them.
Locks, alarms, security cameras – nothing seemed to deter the criminals. I was worried about the safety of my employees and the security of our property, not to mention the cost of replacing stolen items and repairing damages.
That’s when we heard about Sentry AI and decided to give it a try. We worked with Uday to install the AI security system and learn how to use it effectively.
Within the first month, we were amazed at the results. We were able to prevent two burglaries thanks to Sentry AI’s advanced monitoring capabilities.
But it didn’t stop there. After the first month, we completely prevented any further crimes from occurring. Uday helped us optimize the system and integrate it with our existing security measures. We finally had peace of mind and felt confident that our auto shop was secure.
Uday truly saved the day for us. His expertise and guidance were invaluable in implementing an effective preventative solution. We are so grateful for his help and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their security measures.”
Thanks to Uday and Sentry AI, we can now focus on our business and rest easy knowing that our property and employees are safe.

AI Detects Burglar And Instantly Alerts Police

How Car Dealership Owners went from experiencing monthly thefts of car batteries and catalytic converters to completely eliminating the crime in less than 2 weeks.

“We used to have people steal car batteries all the time. Using Sentry AI, we were able to get notifications quickly enough to dispatch the police department. Once perpetrators are caught… word spreads and eventually people who used to prowl around our properties stay away because they don’t want to get caught.”

How Lucas Ingala went from tons of false alarms, legal fees, and police avoiding their property to quick police response on real crimes in less than 2 weeks.

“We get a lot of false positives which leads to the old story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf. We have police showing up and nothing really going on and that can cause police to avoid the property that you’re protecting. Now with Sentry AI we’re able to filter out those nuisance alarms and get actual alarms that you can respond to.”

Tom Camarda went from 1,300 false alarms triggered every weekend to preventing all dealership crimes in under 2 weeks.

“False alarms are really a curse in the business. We had 1300 alarms in one weekend and Sentry AI knocked it down from 1300 to 1. It was an awakening to me because I thought that the analytics, NVRs, and technologies in the cameras would be sufficient to stop crimes and it was far from the truth. The truth is you gotta throw more artificial intelligence at the cameras or you keep on getting these false alarms”

How General Managers went from countless false alarms with no reliable detection to zero false alarms and accurate detection of criminals and unauthorized vehicles in under 2 weeks

“What Sentry is doing is building an application that allows us to use cameras that are already deployed at dealerships to be very actively involved in providing secure and safe environments. I’ve watched the evolution of the platform and they’ve done a wonderful job of talking to people in the industry that know what’s needed and focus on solving those core problems.”

Jay Moore went from struggling with false alarms from multiple camera analytics options to completely eradicating them in less than 2 weeks.

“If anyone has used cameras before, they know that their motion detection algorithms and internal analytics are not necessarily the best and tend to generate a lot of false alarms. We’ve used multiple analytics options to try to reduce false alarms, but Sentry AI’s option just seems to work. Honestly, we’ve been so satisfied with Sentry AI’s version that I stopped our trial mid-trial and just said ‘We like this. Just start billing us ’cause this is what we’re going to use going forward.’ I can’t recommend it enough. It has done wonders.”

How Seth Riser from Stratigos Dynamics went from manually verifying threats to using real-time crime detection, catching perpetrators in the act without them ever realizing the tool was there.

“With Sentry AI, you’ve got a tool that a criminal will never be able to see. If want to hide it, you can hide it. If you wanted to know about crimes in real-time and have time to truly react and catch something in the act. You can and they’ll never know it’s there”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why You? What Makes You Different? I've paid thousands of dollars on security. Will this really work?

We've protected hundreds of properties and prevented $24M worth of damages across different industries.

Every single one of our clients prevented all crime and damages after the first successful arrests within the first week of using our system.

We know the security industry (both its strengths and flaws) and created a system that allows auto body shops to protect their lots while removing all the downsides associated with traditional security methods like false alarms, response time delay, and low success rates.

If you are still unsure, take a look at our case studies and testimonials.

What happens if I book a call?

We will see what security systems and mechanisms you are currently using and take a look at the crime incidents you are facing to understand where you are at. Based on this information, we can determine if we are a good fit for you.

Is AI actually good at detecting crime?

Different types of AI have different levels of accuracy when it comes to detecting crime. Regular security cameras that use a form of AI called “Camera Analytics” may not be very good at it because they don’t update based on the historical data from all cameras around the world.

But internet-based AI that's made just for detecting crime is really good at it. This AI is always learning and getting better the more cameras it has, so it can find more crimes.

In fact, with over 1 billion images processed, there hasn't been a single missed criminal event with these advanced AI systems. So using the right AI can significantly enhance the security of your property.

What is internet-based AI?

It’s a type of technology that's made specifically for detecting crime using cameras connected to the internet. It's like a really smart computer program that can learn to recognize things that might be illegal, like a person breaking into a house.

This type of AI is really effective because it's always getting better and learning from past experiences. It's also different from regular security cameras because it's always connected to the internet and can analyze data from all over the world. Overall, it's a powerful tool that helps keep people safe by detecting crime before it happens.

Will this work if I don’t have cameras yet? I might not have enough time to install everything.

Yes, we can recommend a low-cost local installer who can provide installation services or work with your internal IT/Facilities team to do the installation.

How fast do police usually respond with a live video alert?

With a video alarm system, the response time is usually immediate. By providing real-time video verification of the criminal, we minimize the response time required to identify and apprehend suspects.

Do we need guards to spot crimes if we use this AI camera system?

By using an AI camera system, the need for on-site security guards or monitoring services to identify potential criminals becomes unnecessary.

Will this work with my current cameras and NVRs?

Our system works with all cameras/NVRs that can be connected to the internet either wired or wireless. If you don't have cameras that connect to the internet, we can recommend you low-cost ones that aren't thousands of dollars.

Should I use a different camera? I’m not sure my cameras have the right resolution to detect properly.

Almost every camera that has the ability to connect to the internet has good enough resolution for AI to effectively detect incidents. If for some reason your camera doesn’t work, there are cameras for less than $100 that are easy to install that would work with AI.

How many cameras do we need?

The number of cameras required depends on the size of your lot and the areas you want to cover. As a rule of thumb, one camera can cover an area of 100 feet by 50 feet. On average, properties have around 8-12 cameras, but this can vary.

Smaller lots can get by with just 6 cameras, while larger lots may require 16 or more to ensure comprehensive coverage.

What type of support do you provide?

If there are ever any issues with the system, you can call us anytime and we provide ongoing technical support if there's a problem. Usually, all problems are resolved within a couple of hours.

How much time does it take to install AI?

If the cameras are already connected to the internet, it should take about an hour for our customer service team to install the system and ensure all the camera's motion settings, regions of interest, and schedules are appropriate for preventing crime.

Can you train my onsite guards to use your system? I still want them around.

Yes, we provide training to your security team. They will know how to operate the cameras, live videos, alerts, and dispatch police.

Do I have to remove or redo my security team?

We work with your security or IT team to ensure we install the system to meet your needs and expectations. If you have physical security guards who monitor your facility, you would be able to reduce their need as Sentry AI Guard can replace most of their functions at significant cost savings to you.

Will this work if I already have a security dealer working with me?

Yes, your choice. We can work with you directly or work with the security dealer.

Will this work if I have a large lot to monitor?

Yes, our system fully scales to any size of the lot. Larger lots just require more cameras.

Can the alarms be sent to different people depending on their shift?

Yes, we personalize notifications based on personal schedules.

Can I just get alert notifications myself and make the decision to call the police?

Yes, you can. Our system allows you to control which notifications are sent to whom and make decisions based on that. You have the flexibility to receive alerts yourself and decide whether to call the police or not.

Will this work if I’m currently using someone to monitor my property or want to get someone to monitor for me?

Absolutely. Our system integrates with all leading monitoring software. When any sensor is tripped, a notification is sent to you and your monitoring agent.
