Metal is a hot commodity; so hot that copper theft alone has cost the domestic industry $1 billion annually, according to The Department of Energy. And those on the frontlines, including insurance companies, law enforcement, and industry watchdogs, have earmarked scrap metal theft one of the fastest-growing crimes in the U.S. Owners of sprawling, outdoor scrapyards and auto recycling businesses face complicated security challenges. We’re experts in custom designing leading-edge video surveillance systems, with hundreds of satisfied customers throughout the Southwest. We design, install and maintain robust video surveillance systems featuring trained remote guards for 24/7 protection.

Stop Crime Before It Happens

The people trolling your trash for valuable treasure range from dishonest employees to bold thieves and organized crime rings. You need eyes on every aspect of your business at all times, which is impossible to do with expensive on-site guards or video cameras alone. Our remote guards monitor your entire facility, including your yard’s most sensitive areas, storage facilities and sales office, around the clock from a local command center. Our vigilance saves you significant budget and protects your inventory, property, customers and staff. Using live high- definition cameras with facial recognition, proprietary smart analytic software to deliver crystal-clear feeds, two-way audio talk down speakers and emergency dispatch, criminals are identified and warded off in real time. Remote guards don’t report what crime took place on your property-- they report what was prevented.

Client Testimonials


"As a Commercial Property Manager I have found that my biggest battles are vagrants, dumping, and vandalism. Trying everything from drop in guard service, to our own cameras, we were finding that it just wasn't enough. After seeing a presentation of how the system worked, we decided to give it a shot at a property of mine with a high homeless population. Nick met me onsite and walked the property, allowing me to point out problem areas and give his own feedback and suggestions. Since installation, this property has seen a significant decrease in vagrants, graffiti, and complaints from my tenants about vagrants hanging around. I now have this service on three of my properties, all exhibiting the same results. The service and professionalism by everyone at Alpha has made this experience even better. I strongly recommend this company to all Property Managers!"

Cannon Management

"When we first started [with] Alpha we were surprised at just how much activity we had at the property in the nighttime. We knew we had issues, but we had no idea just how much was going on in the middle of the night! I’m very pleased that, with your help, it seems that the activity has gone way down to almost zero. The nighttime regulars seem to have gotten the message that someone is watching and that they are not welcome at our facility. "

Thoroughbred Management

"The good news is a testament to how well your system is working for us – we confirmed a license plate along with the vehicle type to perpetrators residing in North Las Vegas that have been on a burglary spree in the past two months. Given the video we have captured from both the entrance, exit, license plate cameras, as well as my own home surveillance, they have a case to proceed with arrests."

Leon Harris | Property Manager | March, 2018


"I chose Alpha Video Surveillance based on the overall professionalism and knowledge that you were able to convey to me about the project. It is my opinion that the video system installed by Alpha Video Surveillance is instrumental to making the community a safer place to live. I often recommend Alpha Video Surveillance to other managers."
