Innovation @ Work: How Enhanced Video Surveillance Provides Better Security
Video surveillance used to be conducted simply to improve physical safety and security. But with the valuable data that cameras can provide now, video surveillance can do so much more.
When the Oxford Collection of hotels was looking to upgrade its video surveillance system, several factors influenced its decision to invest in technology from Verkada. The company needed a solution that didn't require additional space but could still provide high-quality video footage enhanced with data analytics.
Kevin Hagan, the Oxford Collection's corporate IT support manager, shares how the upgraded video surveillance system yielded data-rich video that has improved visibility, safety and security for its hotel and restaurant properties.
