Hotel guests like to feel relaxed and free from stresses of making sure that their valuables are in place and doors are closed. Hotel management wants to make sure that their guests are getting what they pay for. Since it is difficult to identify everybody entering the hotel, security cameras are required for monitoring, particularly in the main entrances of the hotel, elevator areas, lobby areas and staircases. Security cameras enable the staff to keep an eye on strategic areas for suspicious people.
The security system consists of a Network Video Recorder (NVR) or Digital Video Recorder (DVR), 8-port, 16-port or more and a choice of indoor and outdoor cameras.
Premises may be monitored remotely, particularly when the owner or manager of the property is away from the location. Remote monitoring also offers advantages for an area manager who is responsible for monitoring the daily operations of a number of sites. Systems can be managed, alarms can be received and surveillance footage viewed.
