Welcome
 
The Bent Tree North Flock Camera Surveillance System is now up and running!!
 
All cameras and the Cloud data base were commissioned on August 15, and began recording license plate footage.  To date, over 76,000 plates have been read.
As a quick review, the HOA Board had Flock install high resolution cameras at all four neighborhood entrances.  Each camera is mounted on a 12 ft tall pole and powered by a solar panel.  All recorded footage is sent via cellular communication to a cloud database.  That database can be searched (using many criteria and filters) by designated users on the HOA Board and by the Dallas Police Department. The captured data includes most, if not all, of the following vehicle information:
·       Plate number
·       Make
·       Model
·       Color
·       Body Style
·       Identifiers such as luggage racks, bumper stickers, etc.
 
We had Flock install 4 cameras – one at each neighborhood entrance – that record license plates and other information on inbound vehicles.  We expect this security upgrade to further protect BTN and to allow us to assist the DPD in reducing criminal mischief and apprehending those who have committed an offense in the neighborhood.  Shown below are pictures of the Flock camera at the Coral Ridge entrance, and the sign located at or near each camera location.
 
 
All members of the BTN HOA can add their vehicle plates to a safelist.  When the captured footage is reviewed by the designated users on the Board or by the DPD, these cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. will be flagged as “RESIDENT”.  Separating resident vehicles from non-residents makes searching the database for suspicious vehicles made easier.  The link below will take you to the Flock site.  Please complete the form and send to btnha_security@benttreenorth.org.

Once you send this in, we will send you a registration sheet to list your vehicle plates.  The database will see your plates (as residents) but will not associate your name with them.
 
We are excited to add Flock camera surveillance to our security capabilities.  Please be aware that, while the Flock cost is not insignificant, we have tweaked the security budget such that we are not compromising the hours of the Enhanced Neighborhood Patrol.  To do this, we must meet or exceed our membership goals each year.  The HOA now has more to offer residents, and we hope all of you will promote membership to neighbors who are not members and to newcomers on your street.
 
Thanks for your continued support of the HOA.
