Revolutionising Security with DVRs

Revolutionising Security with DVRs

September 2004: Digital video recorders (DVRs) are playing an increasingly important role in store security as retailers move from traditional videocassette recorders (VCRs) for event recording to adopt the new digital technology.

Just as homeowners are changing from VCRs to DVD players, small business owners are moving to DVRs to digitally record camera activity. Digital technology is revolutionising video surveillance equipment as DVRs offer digital recording of camera events, which present many advantages over VCRs.

Ken Pascoe, National Manager for ADT Security, the world's largest electronic security company, says there are many reasons for retailers replacing their current VCR for recording.

"The cost of ongoing VHS tape replacement coupled with unreliable recording when employees reuse old tapes, has frustrated many retailers. VHS tapes containing recorded material are also difficult to store and busy storeowners or managers often have to view hours of tape to find one particular event. Time they can ill-afford."

An upgrade to DVRs eliminates the need for costly VHS tape replacement and offers improved picture quality and reliability. Digital data also does not degrade over time. The storage space required is dramatically reduced and there are time saving advantages in accessing and reviewing recorded events. Dial-up remote access is also available in many DVR units.

Small business owners often turn to video surveillance solutions to address a variety of security concerns, including employee and customer theft, workplace violence, liability in fraudulent slip and fall claims, improving employee efficiencies and business operations, and helping increase net profits.
