EPB announces launch of EPB Hosted Camera

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:

  • Live and recorded high-definition video is viewable and accessible anytime, anywhere and protected from unauthorized access by Microsoft Azure, a cloud-based program which is more secure than premise-based storage.
  • No upfront equipment costs and affordable monthly subscription options for one or multiple cameras.
  • Video storage and recordings are kept in triplicate in the cloud for seven days to ensure greater protection. Customers may also upgrade to keep all recordings for 30 days.
  • Unlimited Vault Storage - Customers can bookmark important video clips and save them to Unlimited Vault Storage. Review bookmarked video by date, time or description and store clips in Unlimited Vault Storage for as long as you want.
  • 99.5% uptime guaranteed over our area’s only 100% fiber optic network.
  • The system automatically records video so past events can be investigated and video can be bookmarked to review by date, time or description.
  • Customers can monitor multiple video feeds at multiple business locations from anywhere with the mobile app for Android and iPhone.  They can view live video feeds and recorded video, control cameras and use digital zoom to get a better view – all from a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
  • Choose from standard or advanced camera packages. Features include indoor and outdoor cameras, with a choice of lenses, resolution, built-in illumination, night vision, sun shield casing, and vandal resistant options.
  • Since EPB Hosted Camera is powered by the world’s fastest internet, captured video recordings stream faster when seconds count.

“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.”
