Is It Time to Review Your Business CCTV Security System?
March 9, 2022
Security is a massive trend for 2022, whether it be cybersecurity or security operations for your business premises. How long has it been since you updated your business CCTV security system? Is it still meeting your security requirements or does it feel outdated and unsatisfactory?
As CCTV is constantly evolving along with technological trends and stricter security recommendations, it’s important not to get left behind. Here are some questions to consider if it’s time to review your business CCTV.
Business CCTV Security System Considerations
Is Your CCTV Video Quality Good Enough?
By reviewing your video image, you will get a clear picture of whether you need to update your CCTV system. If you look back at your video footage and it is low resolution and you are unable to easily identify individuals, this is a sign that you need to improve your video quality. If there is no alternative way to make the image sharper, maybe repositioning the camera or moving it completely, then you should replace it with a newer model.
Are You Getting the Most Out of Your CCTV?
With newer models of CCTV, you can retrieve real-time footage wherever you located with remote access capabilities. Even if you aren’t on-site when alarms are triggered, you can still respond and review footage from your own home. Set up notifications, use your mobile, tablet or remote PCs to view footage and make the most out of your CCTV by being as proactive as possible. Does your current CCTV have this ability?
Where Do You Store Your Video Footage?
As with many other technological advancements, security footage is now being stored in the cloud. Traditional methods of storing videos onto discs, tapes or other physical media is extremely outdated and there is a higher risk of damage or theft. Cloud storage has changed this completely and gives you the ability to access all your CCTV footage at the touch of a button. You don’t have to worry about security, running out of space or money, it is the convenient and cost-effective way to store your data.
