While many companies focus on using their VoIP business phones to increase productivity, the technology also has a practical application when it comes to securing an organization’s physical office space. This can be another costly expenditure for businesses, especially if the company operates nationally, and as a result needs to invest in Chicago phone systems as well as other similar services in New York and Los Angeles.
According to the technology news provider TMCnet, just like video conferencing, video surveillance is expected to become a booming industry. Tech experts expect it to be a $41 billion industry by the end of 2013.
“As you will see, demand for media phones will only increase as we deliver even more fresh real-time media and content to the device,” Khris Kendrick, the senior director of business development at Grandstream Networks, which provides VoIP phones with video capabilities, told the news outlet.
For example, video surveillance technology can work with VoIP telephony services to provide easy audio and video streaming for business owners looking to reduce their security expenses. Products like Grandstream’s GXV3140 allow this form of media to easily be seen on desktop video phones and cellular devices, TMCnet says.
Video surveillance technology can be perhaps best linked to other building systems with low-voltage wiring. This is helpful when business owners are looking to integrate this system with their access control panels, smoke detectors and infrared alarms, CRN reports.
Even though this type of installation can be learned in a workshop, business owners may be hesitant to devote this kind of time and resources to the endeavor. To reduce the amount of time they need to invest to pull off the integration, these individuals can look to an experienced provider of VoIP products that can handle low-voltage wiring.
