Surveillance in Ports is nothing new. With millions (possibly billions) of dollars worth of inventory passing through their docks everyday, security is a top priority. Which is why many ports today are opting for more sophisticated and robust surveillance systems that can deal with their demanding requirements. Based on our experience, here are some top concerns ports have on implementing a surveillance system:
- Scalability and Flexibility: The ability to grow the number of cameras on the fly is something ports look for, and its important to have a solution that will give them the ability to do so.
- Need for Advanced Applications: Advanced video analytics, high mega-pixel cameras, and a video storage system that is able to handle them are all just some features ports are looking for.
- Around-the-Clock Surveillance: Theft is always an issue, but in the case of ports, its vital to have around-the-clock monitoring.
