All manufacturing facilities have sensitive areas where access is restricted, and certain procedures must be followed. Areas surrounding high voltage or automated equipment, high-value inventory storage areas, 5S red tag areas, and areas housing sensitive data or infrastructure, such as server rooms, all need to be monitored with manufacturing security cameras or cameras for process improvement.
Are all of the proper safety procedures being followed in lockout-tagout areas? Is high-value inventory kept locked up at all times, and only retrieved by authorized personnel? Who is going in and out of your server room, and how often? Are workers taking quarantined material out of the 5S red tag area without authorization or notifying the red tag area supervisor?
Without a camera system at your manufacturing facility, you can’t truly know the answer to these questions and are instead stuck relying on reports from workers. Even if your workers are entirely truthful, they can’t possibly be as vigilant as a camera system, and human memory is far trickier to investigate with than recorded security footage.
All camera systems from Camera Security Now include video playback and remote access to a live view, requiring only a smartphone or computer connected to the internet, with no additional monthly fee. This gives you the ability to view the most sensitive areas of your plant, at any time, from virtually anywhere with internet access.
