Upgrade Your Outdated Security System to a Verkada Security System with Video Recognition Capabilities

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Outdated CCTV Systems Lack Important Video Capabilities

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera systems, also known as traditional security cameras, are becoming outdated due to several reasons.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Outdated CCTV Systems Have Unreliable Storage

Another reason CCTV cameras are becoming outdated is that they often rely on physical storage devices such as DVRs or NVRs to store footage, which can be costly and difficult to manage.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Outdated CCTV Systems Offer Limited Protection with Low-Resolution Footage and Wired Connections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 security systems like those of Verkada offer advanced features such as facial video recognition, remote monitoring, wireless connectivity, and cloud storage.
