The primary goal of every organization is ensuring the safety of its employees while at the work place. The very fact that video surveillance cameras are in place and visible is a major step toward achieving that goal.
Theft Detection, Search & Retrieval
The ability to search through recorded images quickly and locate events of interest is crucial for an efficient investigation of incidents. Searching through digital archives takes only minutes compared with the hours it can sometimes take to search through analog video tapes.
The idea that camera views can be remotely monitored provides both further deterrent to employee theft and a sense of reassurance that someone outside of the immediate location is available should an incident occur.
Remote Device Control
The ability to remotely access mechanical devices, such as locks, or to integrate with local alarm systems, further supports the loss prevention function and enhances employee security.
