Construction and agriculture machinery is large and expensive, and not everyone who needs the equipment occasionally can afford to purchase and store it. Equipment rental businesses make it easy to access this equipment as needed, but how can you secure your business and products?
Video surveillance systems are extremely common and popular in retail businesses. Although it may be more difficult for a thief to steal a tractor versus a sweater, all retail businesses need to be aware of the damages from thieves. A surveillance camera can monitor your business around the clock, even when you are out of the office.
Additionally, a surveillance system can be used to monitor customer interactions, track money handling at the cash register, and ensure all your staff and customers are following safety standards around the equipment.

IP, or network video, eliminates the need for cumbersome wires or cable trenching.
