Choosing the Right Security Camera System


Are you looking for new security camera technology or to enhance your current solution? Overwhelmed by the plethora of options and not sure where to start? In this article we compare the three basic types of video surveillance cameras; Standard Analog, High Definition (HD) Analog, and IP security cameras. Review the relative pros and cons of each to help you choose the camera technology that best matches your current needs now and for the future. Whether you’re looking for a system with the latest integrated video surveillance technology or the most affordable installation costs, Envysion can help you find the solution that’s right for you.

Analog Security Cameras
Analog cameras are the original in security camera technology and remain the most established and popular camera choice. It’s estimated that up to 70% of existing security camera systems currently in use are analog. These basic cameras deliver standard definition video (640x480) over coaxial cabling with a direct connection to a DVR box. Installation for analog security camera systems does not require complex network infrastructures, giving these systems a lower entry price than IP solutions.

How to Catch Employee Fraud at your Restaurant

Unfortunately, employees defraud their employers from time to time. How can you spot this behavior and what technologies can help? Quick service restaurants (QSRs) are particularly vulnerable to employee theft and fraud because of their very nature. It is challenging to spot small amounts of money or product loss in a retail setting where thousands of point-of-sale transactions happen each day. As a franchise owner or QSR manager, you simply don’t have time to audit every transaction.

Here are some of the most common ways that employees commit theft against QSRs and how to detect incidents faster, gather evidence and prevent thefts from happening in the future.


Fixing Errors at the Register

There are many causes of loss at Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs), ranging from improper preparation of product to employee theft. But one of the most invisible forms of loss for a QSR can occur in the most visible position in the entire store, namely the cash register - where point-of-sale transactions occur. From simple math errors to outright fraud, not having clear and transparent visibility into each and every transaction can cost a QSR thousands of dollars over even a short period of time. In just one recent case at the Kohl’s clothing chain in Santa Clara, California, the chain had to pay a $409,000 claim for overcharging customers.
