A constant flow of cars drive through the parking lot to get to the 50 service center bays or showroom to view cars. Over 1,000 new and used Chevrolets sit exposed in the front lot, valued at more than $20 million. Service center camera views are shown in the service area.

To protect these valuable assets, Hare Chevrolet decided to upgrade its surveillance system with video management system (VMS) software to monitor the lot after business hours. Several existing, outdated analog cameras and a digital video recording (DVR) system were beginning to fail.

Working with Conzer Security of Carmel, Indiana, Hare Chevrolet selected and installed new indoor and outdoor IQeye IP cameras and exacqVision VMS software. Hare Chevrolet was able to immediately setup the exacqVision software since it came with auto-detection of IP cameras. exacqVision Start VMS software proved to be the most cost-effective, easiest video surveillance system to use and operate. With multi-monitor operation, the IT, sales and service center team at Hare Chevrolet could now observe activity during business hours and after hours with complete coverage of the entire lot and building.

Co-owners Courtney Cole and Monica Peck monitor customer traffic in the showroom and cashiers to prevent a shortage in any drawers and service manager, David Rains, can view the quick lube area and service center. Each staff member quickly learned how to operate the straightforward software with no training or expertise.
