The Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce announced Monday that it has installed four security surveillance cameras at its office on 10 Station Way in the downtown area.
The cameras were connected Nov. 1 by Chamber member The Alarm Company to show business owners and
residents how they work, said Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ronee Nassi.
The system is on 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the office with cameras in the building and outside, Nassi explained.
"We have a monitor on our wall which can be seen at all times. Although we’ve not had issues with security, the goal in doing this is to raise awareness of surveillance systems and how they offer additional security to homes and businesses," Nassi added.
The Alarm Company owner Larry Walker was kind enough to install the system, which includes a DVR and monitor, Nassi said.
Two of the four cameras are inside the Chamber monitoring its office and conference room. A third camera is located at the end of the building
facing out toward the parking lot and the fourth one monitors the area
between the Chamber office, Authentic Pilates and the kitchen door for Katsu restaurant, Nassi said.
some discussion pertaining to the new plastic bag ban ordinance and a fear of the
possibility of increased shoplifting once customers bring their
own bags to the downtown commercial business district, the Chamber, in cooperation with The Alarm Company, decided to install the security system for educational purposes, Nassi noted.
The Chamber is inviting businesses and residents to visit its office and see the set up 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
