Maybe you’ve thought about installing video surveillance equipment at your office in the past, but you didn’t want to have to store bulky equipment, stockpile videotapes or configure elaborate systems. You also didn’t want to spend the time sifting through videos to find something caught on tape. Maybe you also didn’t like the price tag attached to the technology.
But thanks to technological innovation, IP cameras and digital recording to hard drives has made video surveillance relatively inexpensive, while also allowing users to access camera feeds from anywhere an Internet connection is available. Utilizing the power of the Internet, IP cameras transmit data over a digital connection rather than through a cable. The data is then either stored or streamed on the Internet and can be accessed from anywhere.
As is the case with any piece of technology, there are different levels of quality you can procure from IP cameras. Business owners can opt for higher quality cameras that offer high-definition recording and cover a wide field of vision. IP cameras also enable those monitoring them to pan, tilt and zoom remotely. All of these options provide business owners with an additional layer of security so they can relax, knowing their business is safe. And should the unthinkable happen, they can alert the authorities immediately.
While you might think setting up and maintaining such a system would be an ordeal, fret not: By employing a managed service provider (MSP), you can leave all the technological infrastructure work to proven professionals. Contracting an MSP allows business owners to rest well knowing their technology needs are being taken care of, granting them the freedom they need to invest their energies into other aspects of their business. You might need a video surveillance system, but you don’t need the worry of having to understand precisely how it works when you can trust someone else to take care of that for you.
