Loss Prevention & Beyond: How Video Innovation Enriches Retailers
The retail market is facing unprecedented challenges as brick-and-mortar locations struggle to redefine their role in the age of online commerce. Retailers also deal with continuing, age old requirements to minimize costs in a competitive landscape and to provide services and a customer experience that encourages repeat business.
Video surveillance technology today offers new tools to help retailers. Video in the retail sector has long been associated with loss prevention – providing that “eye in the sky” for store security personnel. But just as retailers are re-inventing themselves, so is video technology.
The biggest change in video is a transition from analog to systems based on Internet Protocol (IP). Networks of cameras connect like computers and can become part of a retailer’s information technology (IT) infrastructure. From the retailers’ perspective, the other exciting development in video is more capabilities at lower costs. Cloud-based systems are also having an impact. Video systems that provide more value to retailers are creating new opportunities, doing more for less money, and expanding the role of video in the retail environment. In effect, video is offering new tools for retailers right when they need them the most.
Return On Investment (ROI) in Retail
Return on investment (ROI) is a key metric in any business, but is especially so in the retail sector, where profit margins may be narrow and could be threatened by the installation of any equipment that doesn’t “pay for itself.” Expanding uses of video boost cost-justification scenarios for any retail business.
More cameras are being installed in retail environments, and the value of camera systems extends far beyond loss prevention. Everyone may immediately think a camera is for loss prevention, but some cameras today can also be used to ensure compliance with PCI (Payment Card Industry) regulations, standards for retailers who handle credit cards. Regulatory factors are requiring camera systems with additional storage – up to 90 days. Cameras can watch a server to ensure PCI compliance. Using video to ensure compliance may have been cost-prohibitive several years ago, but not anymore.
Camera systems also contribute to general liability and safety for retailers. Cameras are being deployed to watch escalators and parking lots (where personal injury liability claims might originate), prompted by the risk management department rather than loss prevention.
Cameras can detect if a person is present when an employee provides a refund, or voids a sale, or performs some other high-risk transaction.
Snippets of video can also be used in training to show good and bad examples of employees in action.
But that’s just the beginning of the value video provides to retail operations beyond loss prevention. Big value comes in the areas of operations and merchandising.
Value for Operations and Merchandising
Even systems originally installed for loss prevention may extend their value if video access is provided to other departments, such as operations and sales. The same camera views used for loss prevention can enable owners or managers to inspect their stores: How much stock is in the back room? Is there a backlog of merchandise? How long is the queue at checkout? Did the store open on time? Are the right people in place? Has the store completed the planogram?
Using information gleaned from video is another useful tool for retailers, especially when combined with other information to yield analytics of – and insights into – store operations. The most common example is conversion rate: How many people who come into the store actually buy something (and how much)? A camera with people-counting capabilities, mounted at the entrance, provides a total number of customers, which can be compared with sales numbers to measure conversion, for the day or during various periods throughout the day. If one store is not performing on par with the others, the conversion rate number can provide a red flag. There may be customer service or staffing issues. The queue wait may be too long. Staffing may be inadequate at peak times. More and more retailers are using conversion rate to help them manage their businesses more effectively…

Video Surveillance To Drive Global Security as a Service Market Until 2020
(Originally published: BUSINESS WIRE)–The global security as a service market is expected to grow steadily during the predicted period and generate an impressive revenue of about USD 1.5 billion by 2020, according to Technavio’s latest report.
In this report, Technavio covers the market outlook and growth prospects of the global security as a service market for 2016-2020. The market is further categorized into four end-user segments, including commercial, government, residential, and others, of which the commercial segment dominated the market with 56% of the overall market share in 2015.
Over the past decade, video surveillance solutions have changed in line with the advances in technology, leading to the evolution of video surveillance as a service or VSaaS. “In video surveillance as a service, a customer pays on a yearly, quarterly, or monthly basis for the ability to view live or recorded video surveillance data off-site to the location of the security camera. The video is used for self-monitoring, surveillance, and business applications,” says Amrita Choudhury, a lead IT security research analyst from Technavio.
Advantages of security as a service
Cost reduction: Security as a service solutions help reduce IT support costs by outsourcing hardware and software maintenance. Unlike the traditional software that is sold as a perpetual license with an upfront cost (and an optional ongoing support fee), these solutions come with a subscription fee, most commonly a monthly fee or an annual fee, which is affordable to most organizations
Several systems are supported by security as a service: It has become a common delivery model for many business applications, such as human resource management, customer relationship management, and accounting software
Customization: A customer can request a specific set of parameters that affect a program’s functionality as well as the look-and-feel so that the application appears to be having the customer’s choice of selection
Technavio’s ICT research study segments the global security as a service market into the following regions:
In 2015, with a market share of almost 65%, the Americas dominated the global security as a service market, followed by EMEA with 20% and APAC with over 15%.
Americas: largest security as a service market
The global security as a service market in the Americas is expected to account for a market share of over 64% by 2020. The American Office of the Director of National Intelligence, based in Virginia, US, faced the challenge of identifying threats and transmitting information to law enforcement officials in real time. In order to provide potential threat information and connect in real time, the office designed a new program in June 2016. It is designed to train computers to identify potential shooters and terrorists before they act. The program, called Deep Intermodal Video Analytics, aims to produce a common framework and software prototype for activity detection, person detection, and recognition across a multi-camera network.
The US has always been a major adopter of any new security technology. The adoption of video surveillance systems increased considerably after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Since the 9/11 attacks, government agencies as well as private institutions have been increasingly installing video surveillance systems across the country.
“A key factor that is aiding the growth of the market in the region is the ability of VSaaS solutions to allow for remote viewing of video footage, especially on smartphones. The commercial sector in this region is a major adopter of VSaaS. Many companies use video surveillance for the purpose of measuring productivity,” says Amrita.

New security devices in Nebraska schools
According to a recent article in Thejournal.com, the North Bend Central School District has started using a high-tech surveillance system with security cameras and video surveillance to help protect the school children and decrease incidents of vandalism.
The school buildings are a part of one of the most advanced integrated security systems available. Access control systems allow the appropriate personnel and students admittance to all buildings. Instead of having to rely on someone to be available with a key, the doors are programmed to automatically lock and unlock based on the school schedule. The times can be changed as often as desired to accommodate evening meetings or times outside of the normal school hours.
The employees will use card readers to let themselves in and out of the building. If their employment status changes, their readers can be remotely deactivated. There are discreet dome network cameras inside of the school and fixed network cameras to provide security footage of the outside perimeter of the building.
Take the steps to ensure that your family and properties are safe. Paragon Security NYC provides advanced access control security solutions for both residential and commercial establishments.

Upgrading Security in Camden High Schools
The Camden City School District has unveiled $1.4 million high-tech security systems at Camden and Woodrow Wilson high schools just in time for the new school year.
Students will be much safer thanks to new, high-resolution digital security cameras and security doors that require ID swipe cards to open, philly.com recently reported.
The technology, paid for with state and federal funding, is welcomed by students. About half of them reported feeling unsafe in recent surveys. The district reported 163 cases of violence, including 18 with weapons, during the 2012-13 academic year.
Each high school had more than 80 entry points and doors were often open. Each school will now allow access to fewer than 10 areas. An alarm system will sound if unauthorized doors are open and surveillance cameras will be monitored.
The plan aims to keep out intruders and unauthorized visitors while keeping students and staff safe so they can focus on academics rather than worrying about danger.
This kind of security monitoring is important not only in schools, but in other areas of the community as well. Call Paragon Security NYC for integrated security systems that provide access control for your home or business.

Integrated Security Systems in Schools
The security of children has become an increasingly important issue. That’s why even school districts have begun to opt for high-tech integrated security systems when allowing visitors to enter the property.
A story recently appeared on IslandGazette.net pertaining to the installation of such systems in New Hanover County schools. Video intercom systems have been linked to security cameras, which allows someone monitoring CCTV to monitor access control to the buildings.
This is especially important for areas where the youngest of children, such as those in kindergarten, reside.
These systems allow for visitors to be stopped at the entrance. Cameras can then monitor them as someone monitoring the camera verifies the individual’s identity. They can then allow or deny them access, which disables visitors from accessing the school until they are authorized.
The idea behind this implementation is that it will increase the security to children and staff members.
Savvy businesses and homeowners interested in this same cutting-edge technology are making use of these systems to keep their persons and their property safe from unwanted intruders.
Paragon Security NYC is one of the leading providers of advanced security solutions such as integrated security systems for both residential and commercial establishments.

Although the economy has begun to rebound and companies are hiring, homeowners and business owners still face a real threat of being burglarized. However, people are not alone when it comes to the protection of their facilities. Security cameras can play a vital role in taking care of watching a building.
According to www.fortbendstar.com, in a community near Fort Bend, Missouri, homeowners had surveillance cameras and video cameras installed on their property. Some of them were robbed, but they were able to provide police with video evidence. Although the crooks in several occasions left with valuables like game consoles, jewelry, cash and other items, they were caught on surveillance doing their wicked deeds. Once the police officers had the data from the cameras, they had a better idea how to proceed in the robbery cases.
The potential of having a burglary is real. People are welcome to contact Paragon Security NYC. These monitoring professionals have many years of experience. They can provide CCTV, security cameras or other devices that homeowners or business owners need for protection and peace of mind.

Security Cameras in Alabama Schools
Recently, the Mobile County School System in Alabama has decided to expand the security in their elementary schools. This will not be done by police officers or security officers but rather by security cameras. According to a story recently published in www.wkrg.com, Mobile County middle and high schools have had security cameras since early 2000. The decision was made so that the students and teachers may feel a little safer and have more accountability.
Of course the surveillance cameras would not be installed in classrooms or restrooms but rather in the halls and outside to monitor things like possible fights or accidents in the parking lots. The electric company that installed the system will be monitoring the feed via CCTV 24/7.
Paragon Security NYC offers several security camera options and other security solutions for both commercial and residential establishments. For your peace of mind, contact them today.

Surveillance in Syracuse
Video surveillance cameras are an important and increasingly helpful tool for homeowners as well as commercial establishments. Luckily, according to a story recently published on www.syracuse.com, there are some dedicated and skillful neighbors who are installing security cameras for free in order for the cost to be practical for low income residents who cannot afford to have them professionally installed.
The Syracuse Police Department has itself installed over 40 surveillance cameras since 2011, but, at a cost of $10,000 per camera, the technology unfortunately has not been able to extend into many neighborhoods that have requested one.
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) usually applies to surveillance cameras that transmit signals to a limited number of monitors at a specific place.
Resident Bob Korzuch says that monitoring these cameras can even be done on one’s smart phone while you are away from home, and he also uses a smart phone app to check the security camera of an elderly neighbor.
Paragon Security NYC offers a wide array of security and surveillance cameras for residential and commercial establishments and would be happy to discuss with you what your particular requirements are.
