I’ve always been a firm believer that when it comes to choices, it’s better to have more of them than not. However, sometimes too many choices can bring the decision-making process to a sloth-like slog. Anyone who has been overwhelmed by a large restaurant menu or stared at a box of assorted chocolates carefully debating which one to pick (please don’t be a fruit cream one) knows how a seemingly innocuous task can suddenly feel extremely weighty.
Forrest Gump famously said, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” And while that notion of uncertainty alone can slow down your decision-making process, when it comes to choosing the right enterprise security system for your business, the thought can be downright paralyzing.
To help you make sense of the abundance of choices out there, this blog will break down why LVT stands apart from the pack, so that unlike that box of chocolates, you know exactly what you are going to get.
FIVE DIFFERENTIATORS OF LVT
1. LOW-POWER CONSUMPTION
When it comes to mobile security solutions, they are only as good as their reliability. LVT Units use half the amount of power as other units on the market. That means continuous protection for your business, on less power, for longer periods of time which leads to greater peace of mind. In fact, LVT mobile surveillance units boast an industry leading average uptime.
Part of that can be attributed to LVT’s solar technology. The units harness the energy of the sun to maximize clean renewable energy sources which minimizes its reliance on more traditional power supplies like hardwired electricity. It not only minimizes the impact on the environment, but it minimizes financial impact for clients. By shifting reliance from traditional energy sources to more renewable energy sources, the long-term cost savings can be significant.
One of the benefits of LVT is that it is an all-encompassing and self-contained turn-key system. This also extends to LVT’s own private cellular network which puts a premium on keeping your data secure and protected. Many competitors use encryption to safeguard your data, but LVT ups the ante by ensuring that your data never travels on a public network where hackers or potential breaches look to wreak havoc and infiltrate systems. The outcome: eliminating one more entry point for cyber criminals, ensuring you can gather, transfer, store, and allow playback of your surveillance video to any authorized users of your choice with confidence and peace of mind.
Security systems are comprehensive systems designed to deter, detect, and act against potential threats. And while the systems themselves can be quite complex, they don’t need to be complicated for the end user. LVT’s enterprise security systems allow for multiple units to be linked together and interact seamlessly into a larger fully integrated and sophisticated system. Any additional units can join and “talk” to your existing network to provide extra support or to close any newly discovered hot spots that need reinforcement. This allows for flexible scaling to meet the changing demands and growth of your business and ensures that there is no downtime or interruption to your security needs.
When cameras capture images and record them to video, that is the very lowest rung of the surveillance ladder. What happens next with that video is where orchestration takes place. LVT’s system integrates with a variety of other IoT devices, and with the help of artificial intelligence, automates directives so that the unit can initiate actions based on the potential threat. For example, when an LVT Unit detects a suspicious person or activity, it can automatically activate strobe lights or an audible alarm to thwart or scare away any unwanted individuals. If the threat isn’t deterred or if the situation escalates, the AI can determine if the system should send the client a notification so they can assess the situation, activate more deterrents, or escalate and alert authorities.
5. LOW-DATA CONSUMPTION
LVT’s mobile security solutions are designed to use significantly less cellular data than other competitors. Low data consumption coupled with LVT’s private and secure cellular network that means more reliable data with less cost passed down to clients. Many competitors eat up and transfer copious amounts of data which may mean additional fees passed onto the client for large data plans with additional charges for overages. Other competitors may require additional hardware or software to handle and maintain the capacity of the large amounts of data being used. LVT ensures you have all the data you need included in the subscription plan. No surprises and no limits to the amounts of data you use so you have one less thing to worry about.
When it comes to our businesses, we are faced with thousands of decisions a day. Some necessitate an immediate answer and others can be more painstakingly deliberate. Both require an informed understanding of the situation to make the best choice. When it comes to the security and protection of your company’s personnel and assets, the stakes are extremely high to make sure you find the right fit for your business. And with numerous mobile security systems out on the market, it can leave one uncertain if not overwhelmed by the choices. However, not all surveillance systems are made equal and LVT offers clear advantages that can make the decision-making process easier. LVT can work with your business to come up with the best mobile solution to satisfy your security needs which makes the choice a no-brainer.
As for those assorted box of chocolates, you are on your own.
