Here's something you probably don't know: 87% of all property crime goes unsolved. That means if someone breaks into your car or steals the weed whacker out of your garage, there’s basically a 1 in 10 chance that it gets resolved.
Why? Police say they often don’t get enough evidence to solve the case.
What about doorbell cameras? Yeah, they record a suspect’s face and let you know when a crime occurred. But facial recognition technology? Local police don’t use it. They need a lead.
Flock Safety security cameras automatically record the license plate of every vehicle that drives into your neighborhood, day or night. If something happens, you can give police the #1 piece of evidence they need to solve crime - the license plate. And it takes just two taps on your phone.
Here are the five big reasons neighbors are buying Flock Safety cameras instead of doorbell cameras:
1. Capture every license plate
Facial recognition technology doesn’t stop crime. License plate footage does. Recording a suspect’s face only works if you actually know the person. It’s unreliable. Capturing license plates gives police the #1 piece of evidence they need solve the case.
2. Instant search
Don’t waste time scrolling through hours of footage. Find the evidence instantly.
- time of day
- partial / full license plate
- vehicle type
- vehicle color
For example, find and ID all "red cars" within a specific time frame. Download the footage with a few taps onto your phone or computer.
3. Police recommend it
For every 1 detective in a police department, they get 5,000 calls for service every year. They can’t chase after every incident. Police need a lead with high chance of solvability, which is why they say things like, “With Flock’s system, we were able to successfully solve an incident that in any other situation would have been a cold case” - Detective N. Yimer, Dekalb County Police
4. Protect your privacy
You own all the footage. Not police and not Flock Safety. No one is actively monitoring the cameras. And you decide who has access - a trusted neighbor, the HOA board, or local police.
Most security camera companies keep your data indefinitely, and share or sell your data to third parties. Not us. Your footage is securely stored in the cloud and automatically deleted after 30 days, minimizing data liability.
5. It’s affordable
Traditional license plate readers cost $10,000-$25,000 per camera. With Flock Safety, you’ll save an average of 40% over the life of your security and you can use that money to re-invest in your community. Don't waste money on expensive and ineffective safety measures.
We take care of all hardware and software upgrades, maintenance, and replacement of units - all included with the cost of the camera. Price is no longer an excuse.
