To achieve success with a video solution, it’s important to consider the difference between video security and video surveillance. We’ve created a video education series to help explain the differences; watch the playlist below.
Essentially, video security is about using smart cameras to detect intruders and prevent incidents in real time – where video surveillance is mostly about guards watching monitors to prevent incidents, while recording video for future use. However, since most cameras go unwatched, what you end up with is video surveillance, not security.
The good news is that it is now possible for computers to watch the video and provide the necessary detection for true outdoor security. Although this idea is not new, there are now proven solutions delivering dependable outdoor video security for the first time. If your business has a real outdoor security problem such as theft or vandalism, video surveillance is simply not enough; you need is video security.
