Free eBook: Choosing the Right Video Surveillance Solutions for Your Multi-State Cannabis Operation
This free resource is designed to help expanding cannabis operators find the right video surveillance solution to best fit their needs, and to understand both the financial and timesaving benefits of standardizing on one enterprise video system. It also aims to educate cannabis businesses on how surveillance video integrated with business intelligence and analytics can help improve operations and increase cannabis business profitability.
Security analytics powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) for cannabis
March Networks’ ME6 Series IP Cameras offer crystal-clear 6MP resolution and next-generation security analytics powered by AI for the most accurate incident detection. Available in dome or bullet options, the cameras’ built-in analytics can help detect unusual or suspicious activity like zone or perimeter breaches and loitering. The cameras’ AI models reduce false alarms by focusing only on people and vehicles.
Track and manage inventory
Many growers are using radio frequency identification (RFID) tags on cannabis plants to comply with seed-to-sale laws. Our Searchlight for Retail software integrates with RFID data, allowing for the tracking and visual verifications of inventory as it moves from cultivation to dispensaries. Searchlight’s advanced tools deliver total visibility, allowing for searches on a wide range of data in the RFID tags, including a plant’s ID code and its last detected location. In the case of an anomaly, such as missing inventory, users can quickly access the associated video footage to see exactly what time a plant was removed and its exact location.
Real-time notifications with video snapshots
Receive real-time visual alerts about your cannabis business. The March Networks Alert Communication Tool (ACT) delivers real-time notifications (alarms and actions) to third-party IoT devices including email, instant messaging on mobile, and smart lighting systems. If a motion alarm is triggered after hours, you can be alerted via an instant message, complete with an image of the situation. This allows you to quickly determine whether it’s a valid event (e.g., the cleaning crew), or something suspicious that requires immediate attention.
Monitor your cannabis operation in 3 key ways
Our Searchlight for Retail solution helps you monitor three key aspects of your business. Get loss prevention support with transaction reports and analysis, use the operations audit feature to monitor compliance and take snapshots from cameras at each of your cannabis locations, and gain valuable data on employee behavior and customer service with business intelligence tools.
Protect product in-transit
Keep an eye on your cannabis assets as they travel with our mobile video surveillance products. Our rugged RideSafe MT Series IP Recorders are designed specifically to capture video on mid-sized vehicles, with integrated power supplies, and solid state electronics. These all-IP devices integrate with vehicle CAD and AVL systems so you can gather GPS data, speed and other vehicle information. Add in our mobile cameras for sharp, high-resolution images.
