Identifying the best security solution couldn’t be more important for your business. Every business has a primary reason for choosing on-premise security, but these days there are more areas where modern technology can drive additional value either with more convenience or capabilities.
Planning a Business Security System
When architecting your business surveillance system we typically recommend you start by browsing available technologies. Driven by mobile devices and cloud apps, the capabilities and costs of business surveillance change every month, so it’s important to get a feel for what’s possible today.
WIRELESS SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEMS
Whether you plan to utilize a wireless system solely indoors or for monitoring an outdoor location, a wireless IP camera security system can be the most sensible option for installation in areas that will not accommodate hard-wired cables. Wireless solutions are increasingly cost-efficient and capable of achieving what was only possible with wired solutions in the past.
Wireless surveillance can extend up to 10 miles, so you can monitor separate building units or even rural areas where there’s a long distance between two sites.
Also called point-to-point, building-to-building wireless installation is ideal for distributed properties, such as on a campus or large plot of land.
IT-Driven Surveillance System Features Explained
More comprehensive surveillance solutions integrate camera systems with access control and “smart office” features via cloud applications. That means you can control and monitor commercial property from your mobile device.
How to decide?
Now that you have taken a brief look at what’s possible, the next step is to sit down and architect your surveillance system. Start by writing down the benefits that you are prioritizing, and separate needs from nice-to-haves.
We recommend sitting down with a professional who has experience with a wide range of businesses and use-cases, someone who will take the time to answer all your questions, so you can be sure to gain the most benefit from your surveillance solution.
