Reliable security systems are vital to protect your membership club, your members, and your staff. And video surveillance is a core component of that.
Security camera technology has come a long way since the days of grainy footage and replacing tapes. Today, the most innovative video surveillance solutions will help you monitor your club at all times in high quality, gather data, and take advantage of state-of-the-art AI.
If you’re looking to invest in security cameras for the first time or to upgrade your current setup, choosing the right options for you can be tough. That’s why, in this post, we’ll explore the top security camera trends you need to know, and provide you with all the insights you need to understand what systems will work best for your membership club.
IP Cameras Allow for Faster, Easier Setup
Internet protocol (IP) cameras have become a popular security solution: they receive and store footage over the internet, instead of through cables like analog systems. That ensures video quality is better, as it is sent as a digital signal, which is ideal when you need to analyze footage closely.
IP cameras are easier to set up than analog systems, too, and you should be able to integrate it into your current infrastructure with user-friendly software. As a result, a trained camera security provider will get your IP cameras up and running in no time.
AI is Informing How We Use Security Cameras
Artificial intelligence (AI) is creating smarter security cameras. For example, AI enables security cameras to count the number of people in a particular area within a specific period of time. That can help you identify which parts of your membership club are most popular and when.
AI-enabled security cameras can also recognize number plates, send alerts about different types of movement, identify when certain items are left unattended, recognize faces, and more. The AI’s capabilities vary based on the setup you choose, but AI in general empowers membership clubs with more intelligent video surveillance.
With AI, you can also gather data about activity in and around your membership club, helping you to make informed decisions. For instance, you may learn more about which entrances or parking lots become busy at specific times, and open up others to reduce congestion.
4K Resolution is the Way to Go
Quality is paramount when analyzing video surveillance footage. If you need to get a clear look at a visitor, license plate, object, or anything else, a high resolution will make it easier to pick out the essential details.
Some video surveillance systems have a low resolution, and that makes recognition much more difficult. Fortunately, it’s easy to install security cameras with 4K resolution today. If your membership club uses an outdated video surveillance system, you will be amazed by the difference in 4K footage.
If you need to identify a member’s facial features for any reason, such as banning them from your club for breaching rules, 4K resolution will help you verify their identity before you take action.
Security Cameras are More Cost-Effective Than Ever
Setting up a new video surveillance system doesn’t need to bite a huge chunk out of your budget. That may have been the case once upon a time, but the latest security cameras are more cost-effective to buy, install, and run than ever.
As a result, you can integrate reliable security cameras into your operations comfortably. When you work with a team of experienced security surveillance specialists, you’ll receive the best setup available for your budget.
And that will provide you with invaluable peace of mind: your club will be monitored round the clock, leaving you and your team free to focus on essential duties. Any footage you need will always be on hand.
Thermal Imaging Empowers You to See in the Dark
Thermal imaging cameras detect heat energy, which allows them to see things that may be harder to pick up with conventional cameras.
These are fantastic for monitoring parts of your club with low lighting, such as exterior areas at night. Intruders will be easier to spot and track in the dark with thermal imaging. That could be crucial when describing incidents to police and providing evidence.
Check Your Security Feeds from Anywhere
One of the most important advancements in video surveillance technology is remote access to your feeds. You can sign in and check on your membership club at any time, in any place, on virtually any device with an internet connection.
That’s simple, convenient, and enables you to track activities at your club while off-site.
Save Storage Space and Time with Record on Motion
Installing security cameras programmed to record on motion is increasingly popular.
You’ll only capture footage when movement is detected, which makes searching for incidents fast and simple. No more scrubbing through hours and hours of video. Just find what you need to see quickly.
Recording on motion is easier on storage space, too. With less footage captured, you can make even a modest storage capacity go further.
