Chattanooga, TN (Mar. 10, 2021) – EPB is offering a new business solution, EPB Hosted Camera – a security product for commercial customers with no upfront equipment costs.
“For many small businesses, it can be financially difficult to purchase, install and maintain camera equipment which can cost thousands of dollars,” said Kennard Yamada, EPB Director of Sales. “Instead, they can lease the cameras from EPB and our team will professionally install and maintain the equipment as well as help businesses expand the system as they grow.”
Companies can protect their businesses with a scalable, secure, camera solution powered by EPB which they can manage from anywhere.
“While protecting companies with security cameras can seem daunting, EPB will keep it simple with a cloud-based video monitoring system that’s easy to use,” said Yamada. “Business owners can self-monitor their properties with indoor and/or outdoor cameras over our fiber networking infrastructure.”
Some of the key features include:
“EPB Hosted Camera is a way companies can keep an eye on their business locations 24/7 to ensure operations are running smoothly and everything is safe and sound,” said Yamada. “They can watch for suspicious activity, monitor specific locations like cash registers, and get a better understanding of how their employees are interacting with customers.”
EPB Hosted Camera is backed by our local, 24/7/365, award-winning customer service.
“Businesses will receive all the help they need from a site survey and installation, to product training and maintenance,” said Yamada. “Our EPB tech support staff is available any time, day or night, including holidays.”
