A New Look at Video Surveillance

Peace of mind can be elusive in today's business environment. Whether you own a convenience store, a software company, or a restaurant, odds are good that you have considered installing a video surveillance system at one time or another to help make that objective a reality.

Video surveillance has several practical uses, such as keeping an eye on the cash register, making sure employees are staying on task, watching for deliveries, and monitoring customer interactions.

On a grander scale, video surveillance can help with:

?? Avoiding frivolous lawsuits

?? Ensuring customer and employee safety

?? Preventing employee and outsider theft

?? Evaluating customer service

?? Providing insurance benefits

?? Checking in while away

The high cost and complexity of traditional security systems is a common stumbling block, but recent advances in IP (Internet Protocol) digital video security systems have lowered the cost and tremendously raised the user-friendliness of video surveillance.
