See It All From Anywhere: The Speros Guide To Surveillance Cameras

Savannah, and the Low Country region, are experiencing a period of tremendous growth– attracting a wave of entrepreneurs and established companies alike. Savannah seems like the place to be, with multiple businesses opening Savannah locations or even moving their headquarters to our beautiful city! However, for business owners, this economic boom comes hand-in-hand with the responsibility of ensuring safety and security for your employees, assets, and customers. Fortunately, implementing surveillance cameras is a cost-effective and proactive security measure that can significantly benefit your Savannah business.

Why your business needs surveillance cameras

Business owners these days tend to wear many hats– you’re responsible for driving sales, managing employees, and ensuring smooth operations while keeping their establishments safe and secure.

The deterring effect that cameras have on crime translates to peace of mind for you, and a safer environment for your employees and customers.

Employee safety: A secure work environment is also capable of boosting employee morale and giving employees a sense of wellbeing. Surveillance cameras can also deter workplace violence and harassment, allowing them to focus on completing their job duties. Cameras can also be used to monitor spaces where employees work alone, like warehouses or late-night shifts, providing an extra layer of security.

Reduced insurance costs: Additionally, many insurance companies offer significant discounts for businesses that have documented security measures in place. Cameras can provide valuable evidence in the event of theft, vandalism, or other incidents, which can potentially lead to lower insurance premiums. 

Be sure to check with your insurance provider to understand their specific requirements for security cameras and policy discounts.

Monitor inventory & customer activity: Surveillance cameras offer a powerful tool for loss prevention. They allow you to have “eyes everywhere”, monitoring inventory levels in real time while identifying suspicious activity and even deter internal theft.

Cameras can also be used to analyze customer behavior patterns within your store. Observing customer flow can help you to optimize your store layout for better product placement and a more engaging shopping experience.

Crime deterrence: A surveillance camera system from the experts here at Speros can empower you to accomplish that safety and security. Would-be criminals are much less likely to target properties that are equipped with visible security cameras. A recent study by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte found that a 50% reduction in crime rates occurred within a year of installing security cameras in high-crime neighborhoods.

Remote monitoring: Live-streaming capabilities of today’s surveillance camera systems provide you with a level of peace of mind that’s just not attainable without them! We offer some camera systems that allow you to access your live feeds from anywhere with an internet or data connection. This means that you can check on your business off-hours, monitor employee activity any time, or even address customer concerns remotely.

Speros is Your Partner for Surveillance Camera Systems in Savannah

We understand that every business has unique security needs– surveillance camera systems are not a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why we offer a range of surveillance camera solutions that are designed to meet the specific requirements of Savannah business. 

Our team of experts will work closely with you to assess your security vulnerabilities and recommend the ideal system for your situation.

In order to get a better understanding of the type of surveillance camera system that will work best for you, it’s helpful to know the types of camera systems available– so we put together a quick guide for you!

Analog cameras: Analog cameras were the mainstay of video surveillance for many years. However, advancements in technology have led to far superior image quality and functionality with other types of cameras. If you’re currently using an analog camera system, we’d be happy to discuss your surveillance needs to equip you with a system that will work more efficiently for a future-proof security strategy. In fact, switching to a modern camera system may be more cost-effective than sticking with your analog solution, since finding people to service an analog surveillance camera system may be difficult and expensive!

HD over COAX Cameras: Ideal for situations where rewiring your building is not feasible, HD over COAX cameras utilize existing coaxial cabling infrastructure. This allows you to upgrade your surveillance system to high-definition quality video without incurring the cost of rewiring your entire building.

IP Cameras: The industry leader in image clarity and functionality, IP cameras transmit digital video footage over your network, eliminating the need for dedicated recording devices. They offer superior image quality, remote accessibility, and a wider range of advanced features compared to analog or HD over COAX cameras.

Advanced Surveillance Camera Features for Businesses

Speros goes beyond basic surveillance. We offer a suite of advanced IP camera features designed to enhance your security and streamline your operations.

Built-in storage: Eliminate the need for separate NVRs (Network Video Recorders) or DVRs (Digital Video Recorders) by opting for IP cameras with built-in storage. These cameras can store up to 365 days of footage directly on the device, providing a readily accessible record of activity.

Secure remote access: Monitor your business from anywhere in the world with a user-friendly mobile app. The app allows you to view live feeds, access recorded footage, and even receive instant alerts triggered by motion detection or other security events.

License plate recognition: This advanced feature is especially beneficial for businesses with parking lots or loading areas. LPR cameras can automatically capture and record license plate data, allowing you to identify authorized vehicles and deter unauthorized access. LPR systems typically only send encrypted thumbnails to the cloud for storage, minimizing bandwidth usage and triggering recording only when a license plate is actively viewed.

Updates: Security threats are constantly evolving. Speros provides ongoing software and security updates for your camera system, ensuring that you’re able to stay ahead of the latest cybersecurity risks and keep your company safe.

Understanding Savannah Surveillance Camera Laws

The legal landscape surrounding video surveillance can vary, depending on your location. Here in Savannah, the state laws of Georgia apply. Speros stays up-to-date on all relevant regulations and can advise you on proper signage and camera placement to ensure that your system is fully compliant with local laws.

If you’re curious, here are the relevant Georgia laws regarding surveillance. TL;DR–  It’s perfectly legal for “an owner or occupier of real property to use [surveillance cameras] for security purposes, crime prevention, or crime detection any device to observe, photograph, or record the activities of persons who are on the property or an approach thereto in areas where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy”.

The laws regarding surveillance cameras that also record sound can differ slightly as well, especially depending on your location. If you have questions regarding your surveillance cameras in Savannah and South Carolina, be sure to give us a call– we’re always happy to clarify!

"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."
