Home and business security has become a major concern, owing to the increase in crime levels. Criminals are becoming smarter every day, and thus rendering some of the security systems redundant. The latest technological innovation that has proved effective in both residential and commercial security applications is remote video surveillance.
Common Business Security Applications for Video Surveillance Systems
1. Remote Monitoring
Home and business owners can use remote surveillance systems to monitor the activities within their properties, especially when they are far away. This is particularly important for businesses that need to keep their workers in check. Generally, employees have a habit of engaging in mischief and other unproductive activities, especially when their superiors are away. Installing a remote video surveillance system will psychologically intimidate employees to desist from such activities, and in effect, increase business productivity and efficiency.
2. Prevent Employee Theft
Employee theft is one of those types of crimes that businesses have to deal with on a daily basis. Many organizations rely on passive surveillance camera systems to deal with such vices. The systems record video footage, which can be retrieved later for analysis. As such, they play a crucial role when investigating crimes. Unfortunately, employees can easily find ways of defeating the security system and thus, it doesn't offer much value when it comes to proactively fighting these vices. Remote surveillance systems on the other hand, are better suited for this purpose, owing to the fact that the employees have no way of knowing if anyone is watching them, at any particular moment.
False alarms are probably the greatest shortcoming of home and business alarm systems. Research has shown that false alarms account for a large percentage of security alerts, which end up wasting time and resources. However, integrating these alarm systems with remote Video Surveillance Systems enables the users, as well as alarm monitoring companies, to verify if there is any threat that warrants a response. In the event of a false alarm, the users can remotely disarm the system.
