How Can Surveillance Systems Improve Business Operations?

Businesses from every industry have to spend time and energy working to stay ahead of potential threats, whether they’re threats to cybersecurity or threats to physical business operations. As industry leaders in security solutions and business technology, we’ve seen surveillance systems’ evolution over the past four decades we’ve been in business– and if you need a few pointers on how a great surveillance system can benefit your business’s operations, you’ve come to the right place.

A 40-year evolution

With a four-decade legacy in the industry, our expertise in surveillance technology has evolved significantly since we first opened our doors. Our journey with surveillance cameras began in the late ‘90s, when MPEG4 technology revolutionized the surveillance camera landscape. Since then, we’ve been at the forefront, integrating cutting-edge software and installing cameras to meet the evolving needs of our customers.

Over the past few decades, security cameras have undergone a remarkable transformation, evolving from basic, low-res monitoring devices to sophisticated tools that integrate seamlessly with other aspects of your business technology. We’ve been around to witness and grow along with these changes.

Strengthening security with business security cameras

Security cameras serve as the eyes and ears of a comprehensive security strategy. Business security cameras act as a deterrent to potential threats, discouraging unauthorized access and criminal activities.

Strategic placement and state-of-the-art technology both help to keep every corner of your business secure, under reliable surveillance.

How do security cameras keep a business safe from threats?

The presence of security cameras is enough to deter some potential criminals. While there are fake, non-functional security cameras on the market, we don’t recommend using these, since having eyes on the scene is invaluable in the event of a break-in or other crime on the premises of your business.

Security cameras provide real-time monitoring, allowing security personnel or business owners to keep an eye on activities as they unfold.  Plus, cameras allow for 24/7 security, even during non-operational hours. They serve to collect evidence in the event of a security breach, theft, or any other incident– or even identify potential risks before they escalate in order to address security concerns promptly.

Security cameras protect employees. Monitoring workspaces, parking lots, and common areas can do more than just prevent crime– it can work to deter workplace harassment and monitor adherence to safety protocols.

Did you know that security cameras protect employers, too? Cameras allow you to keep an eye on business operations, no matter where you are– potentially saving lots of money in the long run by avoiding employee theft and other issues that cost time and money.

Precision in protection: security camera installation

Throughout the past 40 years, we’ve picked up some tips and tricks to ensure the best possible installation process for your surveillance system. Every business is different, so we work with you to assess your unique needs and build a plan for installation that’s tailored to your specific requirements. This process helps to minimize disruptions to your daily business operations while maximizing security coverage.

The first step in the process is to conduct a thorough security assessment of the company’s premises, identifying vulnerable areas, potential entry points, and critical assets that need protection. We also engage in a detailed consultation with the client to understand your specific security needs, concerns, and objectives, determining the level of coverage required in addition to areas of focus and industry-specific requirements.

We provide our best recommendations for the types of cameras that will benefit your business operations best– for example, cameras with advanced features like high-resolution imaging, low-light capabilities, motion detection, [ people counters ] and remote access.

Finally, we create a plan for the power supply to the surveillance system, keeping things efficient and organized and ensuring redundancy in the event of power failure– and then execute the installation process according to our predetermined plan.  We create a plan for the surveillance system that allows it to receive continuous power, even in the event of a power failure– typically by means of a battery backup.

We mount cameras securely, route cables discreetly, and ensure weatherproofing for outdoor installations (in addition to addressing any further concerns you might have).

Integrating surveillance systems with business technology

Surveillance systems don’t stand alone– they integrate seamlessly with IT services, creating a unified security network that is intelligent, responsive, and adaptable.

Many modern security cameras are Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, which means that they can connect to a network using standard network protocols. This allows for data transmission over the same network infrastructure used for other IT purposes.

However, one big reason why it helps to work with a company specializing in IT services– we separate video traffic from data traffic in order to prevent network slowdown. Video feeds from security cameras can have a massive impact on the functionality of your network if it’s not handled correctly!

Cameras can also be integrated with cloud-based storage solutions, so that video footage is stored safely and securely without the need for on-site servers. Cloud storage enables remote access to recorded footage.

Surveillance systems can utilize encryption protocols to secure data transmission over the network, protecting video feeds and recorded footage from unauthorized access or tampering.

Since our IT services are scalable, businesses can easily expand their surveillance systems as needed, adding new cameras to an existing network without significant disruptions.

"Great staff! immediately responsive to our urgent repair requests. They were meticulous in diagnosing our issues and made the repairs as quickly as they could. They are a pleasure to work with! Speros provided emergency repair service during a weekend when our cabling suffered accidental damage. Speros dispatched two technicians that worked tirelessly to restore the multiple severed fiber cables.  It was not long before the entire campus was back to normal.  It was exceptional and timely service by Speros."

"Speros has been our law firm's primary internet service provider for 10+ years. Rarely do I need to ask for a service work order because they are on top of regular maintenance. Recently, I was getting requests to reboot following critical software, asked to set reboots to be automatic after midnight, so it did not disrupt our workdays. Within 30 minutes of my request, it was done. THAT is good service. THANK YOU, SPEROS Team."
