A new product from Comcast is giving small- and mid-size businesses the green light to monitor their businesses remotely and on-site and keep them safer.
SmartOffice, which provides 24-hour video surveillance, lets businesses record, store, access, and share surveillance video 24×7. It also provides secure cloud storage and instant access via mobile devices and has 24×7 customer support.
This is the same real-time crime fighting program used in Detroit’s Project Green Light, which relies on the high-definition video feeds from nearly 120 partnering businesses.
“Without the complete video technology system Comcast provides, Project Green Light would not be the success it is today,” says Mayor Mike Duggan. “Because business owners know they can get everything they need from one provider to meet the requirements of the program, enrollment is growing at a rapid pace, and we are seeing improvement across the city.”
SmartOffice delivers advanced video capabilities and support to small- and mid-size businesses, including:
• Crystal clear images – Commercial-grade, 720p HD surveillance cameras provide clear images able to capture details with flexible zoom, wide view, and powerful night vision capabilities.
• Secure cloud storage – Up to 30 days of video can be stored, and permissions can be given to up to four employees to securely access and retrieve footage.
• Instant mobile access – Live or recorded footage can be accessed via smart phones or tablets with the SmartOffice Mobile App, or from a desktop.
• No large capital outlay – The first camera is included with the service, and additional cameras are available for a monthly charge.
As part of the installation process, experienced technicians will come to the business and help identify the most vulnerable areas at its location so monitors are set up where they will do the most good. Any maintenance, repairs and replacements for the cameras will be provided by Comcast.
“The growing trend for building ‘Smart Cities’ will lead to the rise of connected devices across the private and public sectors, and our SmartOffice solution can provide video surveillance to organizations that want to monitor their locations more closely,” says Christian Nascimento, executive director of premise services at Comcast Business. “This new service aligns well with our high-capacity internet and Ethernet offerings and allows SMBs to use the cloud for easy access to, and sharing of, video footage, which can benefit a business in many ways.”
