5 Features of a Security System Perfect for a Business

If you're going to invest in a security system for your business, make sure it has the best features available on the market. Technology continues to evolve and become more affordable each year, and new features are constantly being added to security systems.

If you're currently in the market for a new or upgraded security system, make sure it has the five following features. 

1. High-Definition Video

You'll want the video cameras in your security system to be able to record high-definition images. If you see someone shoplifting, or even worse, robbing your establishment you'll want to be able to capture clear and well-defined images of his or her face and clothing, as well as what they're attempting to steal. With high definition images, it will be a lot easier to hold criminals accountable in a court of law and to have them convicted. Blink's 720p HD security camera system ensures that you get a clear view of your business, with minimal distortion or blurring.

2. Motion Sensor Detection

You don't want to risk the opportunity to capture images or video of a criminal act because the batteries in your security system ran out due to it always being on. When your security system has motion sensors on it, it will only turn on and begin recording images or video footage when it detects movement in areas where there shouldn't be any movement. Blink's feature-rich security system includes a motion-activated camera when armed, any detected motion triggers the recording of a short video clip.

3. Weatherproof Equipment

If it rains, snows, or sleets, you want your security equipment to always operate at full capacity. Ensure your equipment is waterproof and able to remain operable through any type of weather. Blink's XT weatherproof camera will be able to sustain wet weather.

4. Wireless Technology

With wireless technology, you'll be able to access your security system and cameras from anywhere at any time via a device that's hooked up to wi-fi. You can review motion detected video footage no matter where you are. Blink's wireless technology also allows you to easily install it wherever you need it in your establishment since it doesn't require a cable or electrical hook up of any kind.

5. Mobile Interactive Alerting System

Not only can you access your security footage on your mobile device with wireless technology, you can stop alerts for nonthreatening instances, so authorities aren't needlessly notified. You'll also be able to access all your video cameras right from your mobile device wherever you are. With Blink's mobile alert system, you'll quickly receive a push notification alert when something suspicious is happening with a link to the video attached, so you can decide how to respond.
