Home automation simply put is to create a set of rules that will allow you to control different aspects of you home. Making your home smarter.
After a long day at the office your automation system turns the heat up to make it a nice warm house when you get there. Then you approach your garage door and with a push of a button you open your garage door and disarm your security, and once your inside it closes the garage door automatically. Once the garage is closed your door to your home automatically unlocks. Once you open the door your lights turn on to great you. You head into the kitchen and the lights automatically turn on and the vents open. Once your done in the kitchen and you head into the den for the evening and your home realizes your no longer in that room anymore and it closes the vents and turns the lights off. You sit down in front of the TV and the blinds close them self and the lights automatically dim. Once your done watching TV and you head to bed. Your bedroom lights automatically turn on, and the heat vents open until you are settled into bed and your home goes into a night mode, arming the security and turning off any lights that have been left on.
Most video surveillance customers are well aware of the key benefits of the technology: crime deterrence and detection, an overall higher level of security, and often a return on investment (ROI), thanks to reduced theft or vandalism. However, these systems offer several additional benefits that many may not know about.
Today, we’re taking a closer look at five lesser-known benefits of video surveillance that your customers might not have considered:
Video surveillance provides powerful evidence in case your customer’s company finds itself involved in any number of legal problems. This might involve consumer slip-and-fall claims, workers’ compensation cases, criminal investigations, and more. And thanks to this reduced liability, many of your clients might see a decrease in their insurance premiums—which is helpful for achieving an ROI.
For your clients in retail, hospitality, and similar fields, adding video surveillance might also have a positive impact on their employees’ work ethic. When cameras are added to a workplace, there is usually a marked difference in employee behavior.
Many organizations find that surveillance is one of the best ways to ensure that workers are following the dress code, providing a high level of customer service, and adhering to overall company policy. And this is true even if the video feed isn’t necessarily monitored; the mere presence of cameras encourages employees to be on their best behavior.
Surveillance can be a powerful tool for showing employees what to do—and what not to do—to be successful at an organization. In many companies, human resources and management use video surveillance footage as a tool to train employees on the various tasks involved in their job. While this is particularly useful for positions within the security department, it can also help train workers in customer service, equipment use, sales, and other areas.
Workplace violence is a significant issue in the United States and throughout the world. In fact, nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and experts believe the number of unreported incidents is even higher. These events range all the way from minor scuffles between coworkers to violent, disgruntled employees who set out to harm multiple people.
Video surveillance is a powerful tool in combating workplace violence. Not only does the presence of cameras help deter violent activity, but surveillance also provides evidence of such incidents, which can help with investigation and prosecution.
Harassment comes in many forms, but it usually refers to any unwelcome behavior that is based on a person’s race, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, appearance, or sexual preference. Of course, this type of behavior is incredibly disruptive to any workplace, and organizations of all kinds must keep an eye out to maintain a positive, respectful environment.
This is yet another way in which video surveillance is helpful. Security officers or management can regularly check in on their employees—even those located in another office or store—to ensure that company policy regarding harassment is being followed by all. Should an employee file a harassment claim, the video footage can, once again, prove helpful for investigating and punishing the behavior.
