Wireless technology to watch over your commercial premises

Have you ever had a break-in at work? Managing security can be a constant challenge, especially in industrial areas where it’s often isolated or quiet after dark.  Yet even an attempted burglary can be a costly headache that will disrupt your business. And if you’re managing a commercial construction site, after-hours theft or vandalism can delay your project and cause costs to escalate.

Using CCTV can be a great deterrent against would-be thieves or vandals. However, in the past, fitting a CCTV system at a commercial premises could be a big job – especially if there are multiple buildings to secure (e.g. an office, factory and warehouse complex). The reason is, multiple sites require wiring to be installed between each building.

Now for the good news

Advances in technology have simplified the way CCTV systems work. You can now use wireless transmitters to link security cameras between two or three buildings – making it pretty straightforward to create a long-range wireless network for your CCTV system.

You won’t need to install extra wiring and you can reach parts of your property or site where in the past, wiring was either impractical or impossible! The wireless access points can broadcast multiple camera streams as long as you have the bandwidth to support it.

If you’ve been thinking about boosting security at your workplace, commercial premises or construction site, CCTV using wireless access points could be a cost-effective solution.
