Types of video surveillance in the modern enterprise
Internal and external business surveillance videos
Today’s businesses use surveillance video for internal workplace monitoring as well as external. It includes everything from theft monitoring in stores to employee monitoring to business operations management and overall property management. Externally too, organizations often need surveillance to ensure business and personnel safety.
Industrial sites monitoring
Many businesses have off-shore sites, manufacturing plants, factories or other industrial facilities that require constant monitoring. In such places, surveillance video is used for remote monitoring, theft prevention, quality control, workplace safety and other targeted monitoring activities required for businesses to remain secure and competitive.
Commercial property management
Property surveillance has become the norm for residential units and commercial buildings alike. Property owners and managers now use video surveillance to safeguard property, minimize misconduct, deter unwelcome visitors and reduce the instance of vandalism – all by monitoring property premises such as parking lots, shared areas and more.
Law enforcement agencies (LEAs) today collect various forms of surveillance footage as evidence for criminal investigations and overall public monitoring. Not only do LEAs need quick access to the evidentiary videos, but they also need to store, manage, analyze and share the media internally and across other agencies for investigation and forensics.
