Cameras Help Deter Criminality As Well As Catch Criminals

ESC Logo #1 (image)Having video can mean the difference between catching a criminal and letting them go without a chance of finding out who they are. In a situation like this, not only can we save the video on site, but also remotely in what is called a Cloud-based VaaS (Video as a Service). And where money is an issue, you have the option of simply saving relevant images in the Cloud only.

By using a Vaas, you pay a monthly charge for the service as oppose to paying a good bit of money up front to purchase a sizable DVR (Digital Video Recorder)  or a NVR (Network Video Recorder). The cameras and wiring inside  your facility will have to be purchased up front, however.
