What kind of Cannabis business do you have? Maybe you have a small retail space or a massive grow facility with various distributors. No matter what type of company you have within the marijuana industry, they are all impacted by a rapidly thriving industry requiring a significant amount of organization, operation, and security.
You already know the number of legal regulations you have had to meet to even consider growing or selling Cannabis, and how strictly the industry enforces their policies and laws. Whether a business is located in Texas or California the one thing these states (and all states) have in common, is they are required to have video surveillance operations. These systems have to monitor the facility at all times, 24/7.
In this article, we are going to discuss the challenges and reasons why video surveillance is crucial to your marijuana business operation.
The threat of security breaches is genuine and not uncommon within this industry. From theft and robbery to employee complications and transport of product. Here are the most common security threats that video surveillance can prevent or alleviate.
There are requirements that businesses have to adhere to, from a quality and data standpoint. For example, the cameras have to be able to capture 15 frames per second and offer a 1280x720 pixels resolution. The system also has to provide a minimum of 13 GB of data each day. You’ll want to purchase a high-quality network to meet the regulations and protect your business.
You have options in choosing the right control systems and software to manage your Cannabis business. What you’ll want to make sure is that it meets the proper regulations and offers you the best “view” of what is going on during the day to day operations. Here are some features of a quality video surveillance software system.
