Want to step up your training methods while saving time and expenses?  How about knowing if an alarm is false or not from far away—even view the intruder if the alarm is legitimate?  You must want to reduce shoplifting without even being present.

All of this is possible with remote video monitoring for your business.  Improve productivity.  Cut costs.  Monitor “goings-on” when you can’t be there.

iSee Video is one service that makes remote video monitoring for business possible.

As mentioned above, you will be able to offer training from a distance.  By viewing your smart phone or PC, you can witness employee behaviors that may need modification or even validation and praise.

Catching employee theft before it becomes debilitating is vital to a businesses of all sizes.  And with many remote video monitoring systems for businesses, the storage of sensitive video is kept off-site, so employee tampering won’t be an issue.

You can even have it set up so that you receive an email alert straight to your smart phone or PC if a sensitive door is opened or a cabinet is accessed.  Protect valuable merchandise and sensitive records.

Also possible is to monitor openings and closings of your business live as they happen from a remote location.  Or, you can have it set up so that you receive emailed video clips of these two events.  Know that your business is secured properly and that your employees are safe at closing, for instance.

While integrating with your existing security system, remote video monitoring for your business can provide all of the above benefits.  And no dedicated phone line or computer line is needed. 

It can also provide email alerts to you when temperatures changes beyond an acceptable level, when water leaks and when power fails.  Watch video clips of these events to check in and assess the situation.

And it’s not only employees that you can keep an eye on.  How about off-hour vendors like the cleaning service. Chances are, they’re doing a great and honest job, but for peace of mind sake, you can check on them with remote video monitoring.

Monitor deliveries.  Maybe a certain package has been dropped off that shouldn’t be left outside or in a common area. Being able to view this occurrence on your smart phone, for instance, puts you one step ahead of the game.  Also, ensure that your lock box or drop box is being used properly.

And keeping an eye on the general loading dock area is always a good idea.  You simply cannot always be in this critical spot—even when you’re on the job site.

Ok, you’re a business owner.  You want to know about “the bottom line”.  So how can remote video monitoring for your business save you money? 

Ø      By curbing employee theft and shoplifting thereby stopping shrinkage

Ø      By saving on gas expenses when you and your managers would have otherwise had to travel to train, etc.

Ø      By saving on gas expenses because you won’t have to respond to an alarm if you can discover it’s false from the video clip that was emailed to you

Ø      By monitoring customer traffic and ultimately improving patterns and efficiency

Ø      By saving valuable equipment that would have otherwise overheated or suffered from water leakage, and many other factors

And if you’re feeling that you just won’t have the time to view all of these events as they occur real time, no worries. You can archive them and watch them at your convenience.

And since your remote video monitoring can be integrated with your security system as mentioned above, you’ll be able to catch the bad guys by providing evidence (as well as calling police real time as the burglary is happening).  The video is time and date stamped so it is satisfactory for evidence in court proceedings.

We hope this post has provided a starting point if you’re thinking about remote video monitoring for your business. 

Thanks for spending some time with us today.
