There has been a lot of talk and discussions regarding the use and morality of using surveillance systems in various settings. Many people argue that cameras invade their privacy and infringe on their personal rights. With the increasingly connected web of devices and ever-expanding Internet, some of these fears have a legitimate foundation in public places. However, one should agree that a small business using surveillance cameras to deter employee theft and catch thieves is not only well within its rights – it is a company’s obligation.
Smarter solutions and equipment are better at finding incriminating evidence and events than the systems of old
Like most electronic devices smart cameras, software and recording devices are getting faster and easier to use. Smart surveillance systems have the ability to “recognize” individuals based on direction of walking, clothing, facial features and other variables, making it easier to spot suspects and identify intruders and instantly alert authorities using central station video monitoring.
With these new developments, small companies stand a chance against individuals who try to break in. Even the ones who aren’t deterred by the presence of a surveillance system can be tracked and caught – the surveillance system links smart devices like phones or tablets and alert a manager when there is someone approaching the building or entering a restricted space after hours.
