The article offers a look at importance the planning process before launching into a system upgrade or new installation, from defining the objectives to considering the impact of lighting on camera placement, and features an insights from Vulcan Security Systems CEO Jason Maddox.
The article also offers Maddox’s tips on the key areas where surveillance cameras should be deployed and the benefits of IP video versus the traditional analog security cameras networked through coaxial cable.
Maddox also describes the range of business operations that are supported through video surveillance technology, such as risk mitigation for slip-and-fall types of accidents or injuries to employees that impact workers compensation.
Security cameras in plain view can be a deterrent to crime and a deterrent to bogus claims of personal injury or theft of property. If legitimate claims do occur, the video footage can provide valuable evidence that speeds up dispute resolution through insurance, settlement, or dismissal.
Beyond surveillance technology implementation, the article also points out the importance of creating a company policy related to the surveillance system technology use, implementation, data retention, access and maintenance.
