Verkada construction security camera familyUpgrade Your Outdated Construction Security Camera System to a More Advanced, Reliable One with Verkada

Businesses with traditional CCTV security systems are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to the safety and security of their employees, clients, property, and assets. Why? Consider the following reasons:

Outdated CCTV Systems Lack Important Video Capabilities

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera systems, also known as traditional security cameras, are becoming outdated due to several reasons. One of the main reasons is that CCTV cameras are limited in their functionality and capabilities. They typically only offer basic features such as video recording and playback, and lack advanced capabilities such as facial recognition, analytics, and remote monitoring.

Outdated CCTV Systems Have Unreliable Storage

Another reason CCTV cameras are becoming outdated is that they often rely on physical storage devices such as DVRs or NVRs to store footage, which can be costly and difficult to manage. These devices can also be vulnerable to failure or damage, which can result in the loss of footage.

Outdated CCTV Systems Offer Limited Protection with Low-Resolution Footage and Wired Connections

Additionally, CCTV cameras typically offer low- to average- resolution footage, which can make it difficult to identify suspects or read license plates. They also require a wired connection to transmit footage, which can be limiting in terms of placement and scalability.

Finally, CCTV cameras also lack the ability to integrate with other security systems, making it difficult to create a comprehensive security solution.

In contrast, newer multi camera security systems like those of Verkada offer advanced features such as facial recognition, remote monitoring, wireless connectivity, and cloud storage.

Why Cloud Storage Should be Your Go-To for Construction Security Cameras

Verkada’s construction security camera systems boast cloud-based cameras with solid-state storage. This means no NVR, DVR, or physical server is required. But, how is this beneficial?

What is Cloud Storage?

Cloud storage is an advanced and secure method of storing video footage from security cameras on remote servers that can be accessed through the internet. Hence, cloud storage does not require a separate, physical storage device such as a DVR or NVR.

The Benefits of Cloud Storage

One of the main advantages of using cloud storage and SSDs is that they allow for greater scalability and flexibility. With traditional security cameras, footage is stored on a local device such as a DVR or NVR, and this footage can quickly fill up the storage capacity of the device. With cloud storage, footage can be stored on remote servers with virtually unlimited storage capacity. Additionally, with SSDs, data can be quickly and easily accessed, making it possible to quickly retrieve footage in case of an incident.

Another advantage of not having NVR/DVRs or servers for storage is that it eliminates the need for additional hardware, which can save on costs and reduce the risk of hardware failure.

Verkada’s Construction Security Camera Systems with Cloud Storage

Verkada offers unlimited cloud storage for their construction security camera systems, which means that businesses can store an unlimited amount of footage without worrying about running out of storage space. Additionally, Verkada’s cloud storage is secure and encrypted, providing an extra layer of security for sensitive footage. This feature allows businesses to keep their footage for extended periods of time, ensuring that the footage will be available for review when needed. Hence, this can be beneficial for legal or insurance purposes.

Overall, Verkada offers cloud storage as it eliminates the need for extra hardware and the associated expenses, allows for unlimited storage and remote monitoring, and is safe and secure.
