  • Operating with tight security budgets, today’s commercial and industrial companies face an array of real and costly risks. In addition to logistics challenges, you must address employee safety concerns, from production accidents to workers’ compensation claims.

If quality control processes are not monitored and employees cut corners, your product can suffer, and in turn, your brand image and profits. More

  • Video Solutions

    Video Solutions

    • Video solutions, including CCTV, video cameras and high-tech video surveillance systems, can protect your facilities by deterring crime and monitoring high traffic or sensitive areas. Video surveillance cameras can record and document activity for evidence in the validation of injury claims, to audit worker OSHA compliance, and for employee training or disciplinary purposes. Your company can use recorded video to investigate the loss of goods or property with the easy-to-use search tools on today’s advanced digital video recorders. More

      Event-triggered video solutions are playing an expanded role in protecting commercial, industrial and critical infrastructure entities. When suspicious activity is detected in a specific area, such as after-hours activity at a loading dock or at a water pumping station perimeter fence, it can prompt an event notification, immediately alerting our monitoring staff for a fast, video-verified response.

      Using advanced pattern-based video analytics, video surveillance can now cover your remote locations or high-threat areas—with immediate alert notifications. Your video records can be stored at the edge (within the camera) or can reside in the cloud. This cost-effective, bandwidth-friendly solution helps to prevent theft and sabotage of recorded video for a fraction of the cost of security guards.
