IP Security Solutions Aren’t Just for the “Big Stores” (Axis Communications)

Not all video surveillance systems are created equal. As the demand for IP surveillance networks has increased among all types of organizations, retailers have a number of options to choose from. What they choose depends on the environment and level of complexity, as well as the overall security and business objectives at hand.

It can be overwhelming to find solutions, especially for smaller applications. Retailers with small locations need a solution that is easy and simple. That is why it is important to maintain the quick “plug-and-play” functionality associated with traditional analog surveillance systems, commonly used in small and medium-sized businesses, restaurants, retail, and hospitality.
