Wireless Security Camera Systems
Whether you manage a healthcare facility, a school, or a private business, there’s one thing that takes priority above all else: keeping your occupants and property safe. For healthcare facilities, it’s essential that patients and long-term residents feel secure in their environment. The same goes for K-12 schools, where creating the best learning environment starts with ensuring that students feel safe in their classrooms, in the hallways, and on school property.
Healthcare facilities and schools face a significant challenge, however. These facilities are often quite large, and monitoring activity on the premises can be difficult.
A wireless video surveillance system enables your staff to effectively and efficiently monitor your entire facility. With wireless surveillance cameras, you’ll be able to detect threats and act on them immediately. The result is a safer environment for all facility occupants.

How to Pick the Right Video Surveillance System for Your Facility
When choosing a wireless video surveillance system for your facility, there are a few important things to keep in mind.
First and foremost, we recommend that any facility — regardless of size or complexity — choose an IP based wireless system and avoid coax cable. Traditional CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) systems rely upon physical cabling in order to function. This technology is outdated, unreliable, and prone to problems. Imagine the frustration of installing a comprehensive video surveillance system throughout your facility, only to experience an outage under critical circumstances.
Wireless IP surveillance cameras completely avoid the problems associated with traditional CCTV surveillance systems. While wireless systems are sometimes more costly than outdated wired CCTV systems, the advantages in reliability, remote control, and ease of data storage are worth the added cost.
Security for Healthcare Facilities and Hospitals
In the case of healthcare facilities and hospitals, a range of video surveillance solutions are available. Basic monitoring is of course an option, but full color, high resolution video that records based on motion detection sensors is also a possibility.
The latest video surveillance systems include various video analytics capabilities. From a security perspective, these ‘smart cameras’ are able to detect threats and alert staff accordingly. Obstructions in front of emergency exits, suspicious activity, and other potential threats to safety can be identified automatically and easily recalled from hundreds of hours of stored video.
But a wireless surveillance system equipped with video analytics can do more than just keep your healthcare facility safe. By providing decision makers with access to statistics and metadata, your organization can gain insight into how to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
Video Surveillance Solutions for Education
Now more than ever, schools and universities must take precautions to minimize the threat potential of an active shooter on campus. A wireless surveillance system is essential in this regard.
But IP security cameras can do more than simply monitor for threats. They also allow staff to keep an eye on what transpires in the classroom, both between students as well as between students and teachers. This can assist school staff in resolving problems related to student-student and student-teacher conflicts.
A wireless security camera system can also be used for video entry purposes. By controlling who can gain entry to an educational facility via video entry, schools can offer their students, teachers, and staff an added level of security.
