Companies spend a large portion of their budget on maintaining their security and surveillance systems. But, they may be able to spend less if they opt for a fiber optic security system instead of the traditional copper-based system. So how can fiber optics enhance a security system? Read on to find out what these advanced technologies can bring to company safety.
An Improved Surveillance System
By using high-speed Internet supported by fiber optic cables, security operators can remotely access and monitor their business security anytime, anywhere. Digital video surveillance systems make it possible to view real-time monitoring inside a facility even when you are not there. A fiber optic security system is advantageous because fiber allows for connections across long distances with low attenuation. This means that your surveillance video is clear and does not suffer from lag.
Clear Imaging and HD Video
Utilizing fiber optics in your security system also helps your security cameras record clearer video. This means that your security footage is reliable and easy to understand, without requiring enhancements that may still not produce a very clear image.
Uninterrupted Data Transmission
A fiber optic security system will significantly benefit from fiber optic cables that provide ample bandwidth and accommodate large data transfers. The smooth and fast transfer of data makes sending and receiving critical information an efficient process. Additionally, fiber optic cables are less vulnerable to interference from events like lightning strikes, short-circuiting, and changing weather conditions.
Protection Against Cybercrime
Anyone who may want to attack your company system or illegally gain access to your Internet typically uses wire-tapping to invade copper-based cabling systems. However, the fiber-optic Internet can only be penetrated by having the fibers physically cut. Because of the resistance to easy hacking, fiber optic cables are considered better for a company’s cybersecurity.
Integration of Multiple Devices
With a fiber-optic security system, business owners can integrate mobile devices, tablets, cameras, and more into their security systems. This requires more bandwidth but makes remote monitoring easier and more convenient. By using high-speed fiber optics, your security team can monitor your facility and security in real-time while communicating with each other in an instant.
