Request a presentation in your neighborhood
We regularly gives presentations on how to organize a neighborhood for high quality video surveillance and what to expect from a security camera solution.
We typically give presentations Mon-Thu at 7:00-9:00 pm saving the week-end for family activities. We prefer to give the presentation for the entire neighborhood instead of just the block captains/crime prevention leaders, our experience shows that neighborhoods where everyone gets inspired early tend to have faster overall adoption rate for the benefit of everyone.
