Preventing Catalytic Converter Theft

Recently there has been an ongoing trend of catalytic converter theft. The National Automotive Dealers Association issued a report in January of 2023 describing catalytic converter theft as “skyrocketing,” with the reported number of thefts reported to the National Insurance Crime Bureau surging by 1,215% between 2019 and 2022.

There are many challenges that businesses face trying to battle theft. Some allow after hours visits to lots and are often in high traffic areas, which pick up large amounts of movement on their current security systems.

Keeping thieves away from your property can be made a lot easier by Pavion. Our analytics, and Artificial Intelligence software can strengthen protection with customized solutions.

An Analytics solution added to your camera system enables a trigger to start recording while sending an alarm to our monitoring center. Once the monitoring center is notified, our live agent can view the event to identify the trigger on the property. This solution includes personalized deterrents such as real time audio/voice talkdown.

Our A.I. software our solutions can distinguish between people or other harmless kinds of movement. This is introduced for high volume cameras to learn the environment over time, drastically reducing false positives. Another feature is the ability to narrow down filters and remove false alarms prior to reaching the live video analysts.

Selecting a robust security system from Pavion will save a great deal of time and money. Replacing catalytic converters can cost between $1,500 and $5,000 according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. On top of that, businesses cannot run without their vehicles on the road. Many vehicles could be parked for days while waiting to purchase and install a catalytic converter.
