Retail Surveillance and Security

Retail surveillance using network video solutions such as IP cameras helps protect a retail business from theft and inventory shrinkage. It can deter crime, reducing losses and creates a safer environment for staff and customers. This versatile technology can make numerous other positive contributions to the store’s operations besides loss prevention. For example, it can help store owners manage queues, count people and monitor flow control. It can provide information to support the development of better store layouts - via heat mapping and dwell time applications. Outside the store itself, network video can be connected to access control systems, or used for general surveillance of the building’s exterior and parking lot.
