Media Genius provides professional-grade video surveillance systems for commercial and government industries. Having a business security camera system installed in your Atlanta, Marietta, McDonough, Smyrna, Stockbridge, or Stonecrest provides numerous benefits, but you need to have an experienced installer like Media Genius to ensure that they are installed correctly.
Benefits to a Security Camera System
First, having a security camera installed often leads to an increase in productivity by the employees. This is because when people know that they aren’t being watched, they will often take longer lunches as well as other things that aren’t work-related. Knowing the camera is on them changes these behaviors. The cameras are also useful for monitoring the workflow of assembly lines, warehouses, and other facilities. This can be useful when paired with performance metrics and reviewing best practices. Of course, you will also have a safer work environment because the cameras can catch break-ins and other illegal activities. Insurance companies may also provide discounts for having security cameras at your business, and you can also avoid lawsuits because you have the evidence from security cameras to prove your side of the story.
Problems with Security Cameras and Their Fixes
With all of the benefits of having a business security camera system, there are things that you need to keep in mind. The first issue is when you try to piecemeal your camera system, and then you run into issues with cameras that are from different manufacturers, etc. When installing a security camera system, be sure to have all of the cameras from the same manufacturer, and this is easily done when you have your system professionally installed.
Incomplete coverage is another problem that can become evident, especially if you are installing the cameras yourself. Professional installation keeps this to a minimum, and they can explain why they are installing the camera where and how they are. Along with the installation locations, your professional installer will also take into account the landscape that the camera is pointing towards, and can adjust the sensitivity so that alarms don’t go off if a bird flies in the vicinity of the camera, etc.
Be sure that you plan for regular maintenance for your camera system in Atlanta, Marietta, McDonough, Smyrna, Stockbridge, or Stonecrest. You want to prevent problems before they happen, and regular maintenance is the way to do that. This is also a great time to tweak the settings of individual cameras while the maintenance is being done. You may also be able to upgrade some of the cameras to better versions that still work with your entire system.
