If you own a business, you probably have a bevy of cameras and other monitoring systems to stay on top of what happens inside your facility. Of course, with every good monitoring system also comes a way to see what the system sees — what would be the point otherwise? It’s not good enough to wait for your station’s guardian angels to detect potential risks up and determine when an alarm needs to be raised, but you’re not always going to be around a centralized location (like an office) to check on the feeds.
The question is, how do you keep up with what’s happening on your premises without wasting precious time and energy? Fortunately, contemporary media technology and application development have saturated our daily lives to a depth and degree that makes it easy to receive notifications on your home computer, tablet or smartphone that can notify you and others of the essentials on the fly or in the comfort of your own home. In addition to notifications, you can even manually monitor your camera feeds and check up on the status of your monitoring systems in a matter of seconds — all with that pocket-sized device in your hand.
Notification systems aren’t exclusive to informing just you, however. You can keep personnel and clients on your premises safe with mobile push notifications as well as strategically placed TV displays and distinguished auditory cues to efficiently communicate an unfolding situation for the quickest response times. Remember: Your cameras have no judgment of their own, and what good is a security system that can’t send the message?
