Video Security Monitoring to Protect
Automatic Car Wash Operations

Car wash operations make appealing targets for a wide variety of threats. Whether it is a full-service car wash, exterior conveyor car wash, or in-bay automatic car wash, the facilities are relatively open and easy to access. They also typically contain a variety of expensive parts and components. Because of these factors, a threat could come from an innocent group of curious individuals, a vandal intent on harm or a thief looking to steal valuable assets.

Security for the car wash industry is important, especially considering that nearly 90% of car washes are small businesses. For these owners it is imperative for operations to run smoothly and with controllable costs. When there is theft, vandalism or other damage, repairs and remediation can be expensive. Even worse, with the complexity of sourcing valuable parts and finding skilled labor to make repairs, costs can run to tens of thousands of dollars every day.



Security guard services are not always a practical option for small business owners either. Guards can be expensive – and they can present their own problems. A guard cannot be everywhere at once every minute of the day and night. They can also become inattentive at times.

The average American washes their car 13 times per year. For many, the automatic conveyor car wash or in-bay automatic car wash is the most convenient and economical solution. The in-bay facilities also save water, helping to protect the environment and support states faced with drought. For these reasons, these facilities, which are also staffed with fewer employees (or none at all) are becoming more commonplace. It is vital for them to maintain a clean operation, and protect their car wash from loiterers or vandalism in order to protect their reputation and build success.

For all these reasons and more, car wash owners need a cost-effective, efficient and powerful solution to ensure their sites are safe at all times.
