Using Cloud Based Security Cameras to Empower Your Business

In this age of ever-advancing security technology, there simply is no more room for excuses when it comes to protecting your business. The concern lies with outside threats, inside risks, and day-to-day operations monitoring.

According to Statista, by 2023, the video surveillance market is projected to be worth up to 62.6 billion U.S. dollars, with infrastructure applications forecast to make up 36% of the global market. “Infrastructure applications” refers to enhanced security capabilities such as alarms, access control devices, and other components that supplement run-of-the-mill security cameras. These applications aim to deliver a top-tier security package. 

A cloud based security camera systems such as this can be expensive. Especially because this type of system is either a “rip and replace” of a current system or a first generation installation.
