Video Surveillance for Industrial Sites
Industrial sites like factories and warehouses can benefit greatly from the security provided by video surveillance. Increased terrorism threats and theft of raw materials have made the manufacturing, storing and shipping of important goods riskier and more expensive in recent years.
Benefits of Industrial Site Surveillance
A smartly installed security camera system can have many benefits for your industrial site, including:
- Reduced theft – Prominently displayed security cameras can prevent theft from occurring and help you identify those who do steal or vandalize your property
- Protect employees – Video surveillance can help keep your employees safe from intruders or thieves, and also from occupational hazards like damaged equipment.
- Building security – IP video surveillance can help you expand your current security system. Instead of constantly watching monitors, security guards can patrol more and actively protect your building while still being able to monitor your cameras.
Advances in camera technology have made it easier to monitor your cameras and site security at any time. Modern IP (Internet Protocol) camera systems are flexible and easy to install, often only requiring you to mount the cameras and connect them to a central recorder or computer. Unlike analog CCTV cameras, IP cameras do not require complicated wiring or specialized technicians for maintenance. They can also be reconfigured at any time should your security needs change. The addition of an NVR (Network Video Recorder) to your system also allows you to broadcast your surveillance footage over the internet so you can check on any of your cameras from any internet connection – including those on many cell phones.
