If you are finding that your security system at your business is heavy on the equipment side, but lacking in the latest useful features that you are hearing about, and if accessing the features you do have is cumbersome, then you are probably due for an upgrade. You want your security system to work for you, not the other way around.
With a smart business security system, you can have a robust video solution accessible no matter where you are 24/7. Receive live feeds, alerts, and more, all fully integrated into your security app and dashboard. Have helpful features at your fingertips that make it easy to see the activity you want to see when you need to see it. It’s a smarter way to stay in the know.
Here’s what you gain when you upgrade your business to smart video monitoring.
See What’s Happening With Any Time Live Feeds
How is your restaurant manager handling the dinner rush? Is that a false alarm at 3:00 AM, or is it a real one? It’s easy to find out, no matter where you are: just open your security app and see for yourself.
With smart video monitoring, you do not need to be onsite to view camera footage. The security app lets you pull up a live video feed from any security cameras, in any location, anytime, anywhere you are. With HD resolution and night vision capabilities, you can always get a clear view of what’s happening.
Always Be in the Know With Smart Video Alerts
When your smart business security system detects important or unusual activity, it sends you an alert. When your system includes smart video surveillance, you can also get a video alert to see what happened. It’s also easy to set up custom video alerts for specific events you want to see—such as the front door being unlocked after hours—without getting overloaded by irrelevant alerts about regular activity.
Find Important Footage Fast With Activity Tracking
It’s hard to find important footage in a hurry with an old school video solution. If you’re not sure when an event happened, you’ll need to review a lot of video to find it.
With a smart business security system, the problem is solved. You can quickly cross-reference events on an integrated timeline of all the activity it processes every day.
Here is a great example from Alarm.com. Let’s say you find the back door propped open at closing time. You want to see who did it, but you don’t know when it happened. A smart security system can go to your dashboard and filter your activity timeline to see only your back door contact sensor. You’ll see right away that it failed to close at (e.g.) 3.31 PM. Now, go to 3.31 PM in your video timeline and see what happened. You’ve accomplished this once-daunting task in minutes.
Never Miss an Event With 24-Hour Recording and Cloud Storage
Emergencies can happen at any time, which is why smart video surveillance works around the clock to capture and store everything your security cameras see.
With many of the new Smart Video Recorders, they save continuous footage from up to eight cameras at any single business location. Your important clips are also stored offsite in secure cloud servers.
This secure, dual-storage approach ensures that even in a worst-case scenario, such as a fire destroying your video equipment, you’ll still be able to quickly access and download the footage of what happened, and share it with the police and your insurer.
