2020 Tech: The Most Innovative Security Technology for Monitoring High-Traffic Areas


American retailers lose roughly $50 billion every year because of theft, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation. Making sure your business is secure is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself from crimes like fraud and theft.

If you own a high-traffic business or warehouses stocked with valuable merchandise or equipment needed to run your business, it might be worth it to look into a high-quality security camera system that gives you the peace of mind you deserve. Let's take a look at some of the most innovative tech combined with security cameras systems that can help you monitor your problem areas more effectively and minimize loss.


4K and HD IP Security Camera Systems

Camera Quality

HD and 4K IP security camera systems are great options for business owners with high-traffic areas because of their ability to cover busy areas and allow you to keep an eye on your property remotely from anywhere in the world. With HDR (high-dynamic range), you can ensure you capture the most important details, no matter what lighting conditions you're dealing with. This feature helps automatically adjust the video's brightness so you can see every part of the frame.

With an IP camera, you'll get crisp, clear, quality security footage all day and night. Some models even have revolutionary Color Night Vision technology so you don't have to worry about trying to make out small details in black and white. Color Night Vision allows you to make out the color of a car or someone's clothes, which can help with evidence if theft occurs. Top-of-the-line cameras also offer features like motion detection, remote zooming capabilities, built-in microphones and intelligent compression that saves recording space by optimizing video performance. All of these features can help you avoid employee theft as well as outside theft.


Some 4K and HD IP security camera systems have a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network that uses a single Ethernet cable to connect a recorder and a camera. The cable can power the camera and transmit video at the same time, giving you the flexibility to install more security cameras at an affordable price. Cameras with PoE can also save you time because it takes less time to install than other security camera systems.

Camera systems with a PoE network can transmit video up to 300 feet; if you need more distance, you can always use a PoE switch. If you use a router, you can minimize wires and cables for larger installations and extend the reach of your security cameras, making installation a breeze. So if you want to expand the visibility of your warehouse security cameras, this would be a great option for you. However, wired camera systems are better for high-traffic areas because they’re always recording, whereas wire-free camera systems are motion-based and only record when there’s activity.

Finding the Right Security System for Your Business

IP security camera systems come with advanced features that help you monitor high-traffic areas as well as warehouse facilities. If you want the most innovative technology in 2020, you need a security camera system that offers clear, crisp video quality so you can capture the smallest details day or night, as well as some of the above-mentioned features. Compare 4K and HD IP security camera systems today to determine the best one for your business.
