Camera Systems for protection. monitoring business. crime deterrence.
As a property manager or business owner, it is your responsibility to make sure that every aspect of your property and business is safeguarded. This includes the employees, building, inventory, and customers. Locking the doors for a small or medium sized business is simply not enough to protect everything, let alone for a large company. Installing security cameras will help you monitor your investments.
6 Reasons Why You Need Security Cameras
Clients trust that our problem solvers will find the right solution for their business. We suggest products based on what works best for the client's operation. Wayne problem solvers offer equipment based on needs, budget, quality and performance, and not based on some quota for a manufacturer.
Reduce and Prevent Theft
Placing security cameras throughout a business can help prevent crimes such as vandalism and theft, as well as break ins. Studies suggest an average small business loses $50k per year. When security cameras are appropriately placed around your business, they can help deter potential thieves.
Real Time Monitoring
Real time remote video monitoring can be extremely useful. Continuous monitoring can be completed from computer, mobile phones, or tablets. It is even possible to have multiple sites communicate using the same network, with each of the camera views accessible through the internet.
Surveillance in your business, especially factories, can improve worker productivity. Communication between different buildings and departments is better, which can improve overall production. Employees are more likely to work at their fullest capability when they know they are being monitored.
Resolve Business Disputes
No matter what type of business you run, disputes are going to occur. Video can be very useful in workplace injury situations or disagreements. Business managers need to figure out exactly what happened. A security camera can provide clear video proof about the entire incident.
Evidence for Investigations
IP camera systems allow users to store all recorded footage digitally using a hard drive, network server, or an NVR. Digital storage provides an easier searching capability, which makes it easier to find the footage anytime you want.
The reason to place the commercial security equipment is not only about safety. Business managers and small retail store owners can also use cameras to offer a better shopping experience. Businesses can study customers’ shopping habits to improve product placement and optimize store traffic patterns, making customers more satisfied.
Choosing the Right Camera
Bright light or low light - The overall light level of the area that the camera will be monitoring has an impact on choosing a camera. In a bright light situation, your camera choice is almost limitless. In a low light situation, choose a camera that has a light sensitivity rating of 1 Lux or below – it may be labeled as a day and night camera, or the specification will list low-light compatibility.
Indoor or outdoor - Indoor and outdoor environments not only differ in lighting conditions, but are also impacted by weather. Indoor areas are generally well controlled. Outdoors, you must consider UV rays, rain, wind, and natural and man-made contaminants. If you are monitoring outdoors, choose a tougher outdoor-grade camera. Remember, indoor cameras should never be used outdoors, but outdoor cameras can often work in either environment.
Wired or wireless - Wired surveillance cameras typically send a more solid, secure video signal because they transmit via CAT5 cable. Wireless cameras can be placed virtually anywhere with ease, because you don't have to worry about running new cable or patching into existing cable runs. Signal security is also becoming much less of a concern due to improved encryption protocols.
Fixed or PTZ - Fixed cameras are mounted and continually monitor one view of an area. Pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras provide the user the ability to move the camera, change the tile or zoom in. Some PTZ cameras are programmed to automatically zoom in on scene disruptions.
IP camera resolution - Resolution in an analogue camera or network IP camera is similar, but there are some important differences in how it is defined. In analogue camera, an image consists of lines or TV-lines (TVL) since analogue video technology is derived from the television industry. In a network IP camera, an image is made up of square pixels. HDTV provides up to five times higher resolution than standard analogue TV. The more pixels a sensor has, the greater the potential it has for capturing finer details and for producing a higher quality image.
On-premise or remote viewing - How do you plan on viewing your security footage? Options include viewing directly from DVR on a monitor or networking via cable or wireless connection, for viewing on a web-enabled computer or smartphone.
