LEWISVILLE, Texas (March 27, 2019) – The Salvation Army in Lewisville now has improved security of its church, located at 880 Fox Avenue, following the installation of a video surveillance system, equipped with 16 security cameras and NVR video management software. The boost was provided by IDIS, a global manufacturer of security systems, as part of its social responsibility initiative that delivers support to local communities. The Company’s Korean partner, KOTRA, provided funding for the installation.
The surveillance system will be focused on interior public areas, the parking lot and playground, and will contribute to the Lewisville community by keeping the focus on children and families; music training, character building programs, education, as well as The Salvation Army’s worship programs.
Cameras can be a deterrent to bad action by recording incidents as they transpire. The new 16-camera system will record more than criminal activity. All sorts of potential incidents are possible wherever kids play, cars drive, and people congregate. The new security system can record issues of liability, such as a fender bender in the parking lot. It can also help reduce The Salvation Army’s insurance costs.
Another advantage of the security system is that it will allow for remote monitoring of the building during times when nobody is on site. In the event of a fire or break in, it will be possible to login and see the areas affected. This can provide the organization the ability to determine the cause of an incident, such as why a fire started.
There is also the potential for use if a disaster were to hit the area. By logging in to the well-built system, it may be possible to assess some of the disaster damage without putting people in danger or at risk.
The new surveillance systems can help to make The Salvation Army a good neighborhood citizen. The improved management tool should help to create the open, welcoming environment the organization wants in Lewisville, while giving neighbors, its congregation and visitors a safe and secure place to play, visit, learn and worship.
Representatives from IDIS Global and KOTRA will visit and tour the facility for the first time next week, since the system was installed. This will give them the opportunity to see the surveillance equipment in use that they have made possible for The Salvation Army in Lewisville.
