Professional Commercial Security Camera Installation in Portland OR

Your business is more than your livelihood. You put your heart and soul into developing a thriving enterprise that has become an important center in the lives of your employees and customers. As a Portland business owner, one of your core responsibilities is ensuring that people feel safe while on-premises and that your critical assets have 24/7 total protection.

The Portland area has seen a rise in crime during the COVID-19 pandemic, along with longer police and fire response times. Though emergencies can strike a commercial property at any time, these recent events show the importance of a robust security system that includes custom-installed security cameras.

The Benefits of Custom Installed Cameras from Paramount Security Solutions

Today’s surveillance cameras offer benefits that keep even the most sophisticated criminals at bay while protecting against other emergencies, such as fires and natural disasters. To get the most from its security system, your business needs to select the critical features that fit within its budget. For this reason, only a customized security plan crafted specifically for your business can provide the armor-plated resistance you need.

Paramount Security Solutions’s consultants make careful inspections of our client’s properties to determine the ideal system configuration. Then, they recommend solutions based on the needs of the business. For example, if a property is located in an isolated part of Portland’s Northwest Industrial area with little nighttime activity, vandalism proof, day/night cameras with high visibility are an excellent choice.
On the other hand, if a business has multiple employee shifts but shrinkage has become an issue, covert and overt indoor cameras offer deterrence and provide evidence that identifies culprits.

Paramount Security Solutions integrates surveillance cameras with other security devices to reinforce every vulnerability.

Types of Security Cameras & Video Surveillance Systems

Commercial security cameras run off of one of three types of technology: IP (internet protocol), IP cloud, and analog. The right choice depends on which features and benefits your company needs.

E

IP

IP security cameras run on your company’s internet. Because they are linked to your server, you gain access to high-level features. For example, IP cameras offer high-resolution images, motion detection, thermal imaging, temperature reading, person counting, and night vision. Many IP security cameras also provide advanced analytics options, such as detection and exclusion windows, object tracking, and response to audio events.

E

Analog

Analog technology has been around longer than IP, but it still secures commercial properties through effective surveillance and special advanced features. These cameras run on closed-circuit televisions (CCTV) and record footage to a DVR. In addition, some analog cameras are as small as a pinhole, perfect for covert surveillance.

IP Cloud-Based

IP cloud-based cameras can save installation and update expenses. Plus, if your server goes down, your IP cameras remain active. These cameras offer the advanced features of IP cameras, but they run off the cloud rather than your internal server.

Access Control Integrations

Many businesses need to control access to their facility and specific areas within. Camera and access control integrations vastly improve the effectiveness of these checkpoints. For example, a surveillance camera makes it more convenient for authorized persons to enter an area while making unauthorized access due to stolen credentials impossible.

Many other security apparatuses work in tandem with surveillance cameras. For instance, security alarms and surveillance cameras can function as part of a unified system. When a security camera detects movement during the night, for example, it can trigger the alarm. In addition, when an alarm activates, surveillance cameras record the cause.

Security equipment that works with cameras to create a unified system include the following:

    Z

    Security gates

    Z

    Access control systems

    Alarm systems

    Paramount has gained my respect on multiple levels. Recently they installed a security system throughout our new business. At the time, we had some issues with bringing in the necessary coverage from our local provider and ended up having to switch companies in the middle of setting up. This situation could have proved to be a disaster, but Paramount was on top of it from day one. I was impressed with how they took the initiative to assist me in working with the provider so that things were handled correctly and that we were given the coverage that supported our security needs. During the process, they made sure that all issues were addressed and handled immediately.

    Paramount made my job a lot easier and gave me peace of mind by responding promptly, and listening effectively. I observed them time and again going above and beyond to take care of their clients.

    It is my pleasure to highly recommend Paramount. The quality of work they provide along with the level of Customer Service they deliver is first-rate. Paramount Security Solutions is superb!

    Low voltage electrical and data networking customer from Tualatin, OR

    Working with Paramount was 5 Star Service from the first phone call! All team members were very professional and ‘gracious’. I’ve felt ’taken care of’ in the most gracious of customer service ways. I’m really pleased to have a trusted gate repair resource I can call and know that I will be okay.

    Gate Service and Repair customer from West Linn, OR

    Paramount’s concern and service to us here have been impeccable, companies that stick with it and put their customers first are a dying breed as I have seen over the years. It is refreshing to deal with a company that not only takes ownership in resolving a situation but does it with concern for the customer’s budget as well. That truly sets you and your company apart from others. Thank you both very much for going that extra mile to make our business run smoother and taking the best care.
