Telecom company rolls out business surveillance system
A telecom company is rolling out a video-monitoring system for businesses in West Michigan.
Comcast Business said last month it launched SmartOffice for small- and medium-size businesses in Grand Rapids.
The service records and stores video for businesses, which can be accessed and shared 24 hours a day with cloud storage and mobile accessibility.
The first camera is included in the service, with more at a monthly cost.
“This new service aligns well with our high-capacity internet and Ethernet offerings,” said Christian Nascimento, executive director of premises services, Comcast Business.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan attributed some of a drop in crime to the use of SmartOffice for 120 high-definition video feeds from businesses.
"Without the complete video technology system Comcast provides, Project Green Light would not be the success it is today," Duggan said. “Enrollment is growing at a rapid pace, and we are seeing improvement across the city."
