Where can I find a place locally to set up a security/surveillance system? People are trespassing overnight at my business.

Are they breaking in sleeping inside, on the proptery, or on the roof just curious...

A couple of doberman pincers roaming the property at night will discourage any trespassers setting up camp, warming fires or even potty corners.

We just had ADT installed for an alarm and security cameras. Sounds a little pricey at first, but it's about the same as if you were to buy a security system and pay someone else to install it.

Call TechEase on State, they do a great job w/ security cams. Evan is a great guy, and his employees are really nice, and super smart, too.

I had this same issue a few months ago. I looked into ADT but after I learned they charge $120 a month for a 3year contract. No smaller contracts available!! and the horror stories on yelp were enough for me. I decided to not go with a national chain company. I did some asking around and was referred to some local guys named Alertiris they were great. I can view my cameras remotely from my phone get email alerts when something triggers motion sensor/recording feature. It was not even close to what I would have to pay ADT for just one year. Anyways give them a try. They have a website. alertiris

OP here. . .

I really appreciate the feedback.

What I hate is that the SBPD requires we post a No Trespassing sign which will be unsightly. . .

The problem is on the property.

799 - That is not the SBPD's fault, that is due to the way PC Section 602 is written and the case history enforcing it.

Just curious, once you have a camera and you have evidence of people on your property, how do you expect it to be enforced without a post sign?

We formerly had a business in town that needed fairly high security. We researched all of the local options (about a decade ago, so there may be new or better options now), and went with Draganchuk. They can help select, purchase, and install the right system, and provide reasonably priced (and staffed) 24 hour monitoring services. It's a local (SB & Ventura) company, family owned. http://www.draganchuk.com/

I spend my retirement sitting in a dark room and scanning the images from the 16 camera surveillance DVR package I bought from Costco. Nothing gets by me on my property. You with the small dog, get off my lawn!

Not that long ago we weren't required to post a sign. We just had to file a form with the SBPD.

Our place is nice. We have great tenants. The whole thing is unfortunate.

People who trespass won't pay attention to a sign.

But I really appreciate the input. Thanks!
