Convention Surveillance Camera Risks
Privacy Control – Maintain surveillance within those key public areas such as convention halls, meeting rooms, and entrances to ensure the privacy of your vendors, guests, employees, and speakers.
Vandalism and Theft – Anytime you have surveillance cameras that are visible and out in the open they are susceptible to being targeted by thieves who want to conceal their identity to avoid being caught. A damaged or stolen camera will cause a break within your recorded surveillance footage and can lead to your event or convention be susceptible to theft. It is important to maintain a backup security system in the event your cameras are disturbed.
Surveillance Camera Configuration at Conventions
Events and conventions vary greatly – music festivals, professional conventions, fan conventions, security conventions, academic conferences, TV show, and sport team conventions, and comic conventions all require security of different types to maximize protection of their guests, attendees, speakers, and performers. We suggest you consider the following when looking to purchase and install a surveillance camera system:
- Do some of your events require heightened security?
- Auto shows and high-tech trade shows are often targeted for potential crime and theft and may require higher security measures.
- What is your biggest security threat or problem?
- Has there been security problems or theft in the past?
- What security system do you currently have in place?
- Do you currently employ physical security at your venues?
Convention Security Setup Advice
- Install cameras at all open areas such as ballrooms, reception areas, lobbies, dining rooms, and meeting rooms. It is ideal to get a nice comprehensive view of the rooms and place fixed surveillance cameras in key sensitive areas to enhance your security.
- All exits and entrances should be monitored and recorded so you may get a crystal clear picture of every visitor that exits and enters your event.
- Key areas such as administrative offices, cash registers, and valuable displays should have cameras covering them to help protect cash and sensitive merchandise.
