Safety standards are the most important venue selection criterion, according to EventManagerBlog, noted by 56% of event planners. While some event managers rely on the security system already put in place by the venue they booked, mobile surveillance systems are becoming a popular trend for planners who want to keep an extra eye on their party guests, assets, employees, and facilities.
Security at events is a tough job in any scenario, but when you add high-profile guests, the stress level of ensuring their safety goes through the roof. Physical security guards are the industry standard for security, but when your event features politicians, athletes, movie stars, and other celebrities, you need an additional layer of security. Mobile security systems can be used to support your physical security guards. Your staff can’t be everywhere all the time – that’s where mobile security camera rentals come in. While the rest of your staff are walking about and monitoring entrances and exits, your cameras can be easily monitored by just a few security professionals. Read on to learn more about how security camera rentals can help increase safety standards for the well-being of your guests.
Enhance your physical security
Your mobile security system should support your physical security. While your security guards walk the floors and monitor entrances and exits, your security cameras serve as your eyes in the sky. Your cameras can be used to keep an eye out for suspicious activity, large groups of suspicious people, and to scan the crowd for signs of potential violence, while remote viewing on smartphones and iPads allows designated security staff to respond to issues in real-time.
If your event has a green room or backstage area for your celebrity attendees, security cameras can also help you keep an eye on who is coming and going in these areas. A visual record of who is in these sensitive areas will help your guests feel safer while offering video evidence in case an incident does occur.
More than 7 million property thefts, or larcenies, are reported each year in the United States. Visual security cameras and posted signage are a great way to deter crime and theft of your guests’ belongings or convention items. It’s also important to have the right mobile security system in order to have concrete video evidence of any theft or other crimes that may take place at your event.
Security camera for events of any size
Large gatherings are known to pose a number of problems for private security teams. Whether your team is busy managing foot traffic congestion, watching for theft, or tackling potential threats like fights, security teams can struggle to control their environment if the right security measures aren’t taken. A popular option for enhancing your event safety is a mobile surveillance system. With no need for a direct ethernet connection, these often temporarily-mounted cameras can be placed anywhere there is power. A wireless access point can stream your video feed to a nearby network video recorder which transmits live video footage to any connected device, like a smartphone or tablet.
No matter the size or remoteness of your event, there is a mobile security option to fit your security and safety plans. Our wireless networks are rated for long distances – our wireless devices are rated by the manufacturer for 50Mbps at 3 miles with plenty of bandwidth for smooth transmission of several camera feeds. As long as your location has power, we can meet all of your mobile event security needs.
Custom Mobile Security
Unlike fixed surveillance, mobile or temporary surveillance is portable. While you can view all of your temporary security cameras on a mobile device, in this case “mobile security” refers to the ability to bring the monitoring devices along with you wherever you need them.
These mobile security systems are perfect for conventions, festivals, and large gatherings as they can be installed almost anywhere.
The WASP Box, or Wireless All-in-one Security Package, from CameraSecurityNow.com, is a custom-built package that typically houses between 1 and 4 security cameras, along with a wireless transmitter and receiver pair. This popular option uses the wireless transmitter to send your video footage to a nearby NVR, which can broadcast footage to any connected smartphone, tablet, or computer.
One of the best features of the WASP Box is that it’s completely customizable. Any number or type of security cameras that can be physically mounted on one of our rugged security cases are an option. For example, you can have a pan-tilt-zoom, or PTZ, camera watching a large section, while smaller bullet or dome cameras are focused on smaller details — enhancing your physical security team without the need for hiring additional staff.
When you book a mobile security camera rental from CameraSecurityNow.com, you get more than just a surveillance package.
