Cox Business has upgraded its Cox Business Security Solutions (CBSS) with additional integration features and management functionality to boost detection, automation, device integration and surveillance capabilities.

The platform updates are intended to let business owners manage, monitor and protect their business locations anywhere, anytime through a single dashboard. Functions include detection, surveillance, energy management and, soon, access controls.

CBSS provides multiple customizable detection options, as well as around-the-clock surveillance. Commercial-grade HD cameras allow business owners to check in via livestream or go back and see recorded content. The system also sends weekly reports.

"Business owners can be confident that they're in control and in the know about their business operations at all times," said Steve Rowley, executive vice president, Cox Business. "With the new updates to CBSS, our customers can protect, monitor and optimize their business with comprehensive detection and surveillance."

CBSS detection packages deliver 24/7 professional monitoring, battery and cellular network backup, customized notifications via email or text, mobile app management, water and flood monitoring, light and thermostat adjustment, along with the ability to monitor multiple locations. Business owners can store content in the cloud or on-premises, receive email alerts, customize camera views and view live or recorded video.

Currently, Cox Business Security Solutions' enhancements are available in Baton Rouge, LA, and Macon, GA, and will soon be available in most Cox Business markets.
