Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) has introduced SmartOffice, a video surveillance solution designed to improve efficiency for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). The business services solution is intended to let SMBs record, store, access, and share surveillance video on a 24/7 basis to oversee their organization. It provides cloud storage and access via mobile devices, and is professionally installed by Comcast Business and offers 24/7 customer support.

SmartOffice is available now in selected markets, with plans for future expansion throughout the Comcast service areas. It provides video surveillance to a range of companies and industries that require video images to be continually recorded in order to monitor customers, employees or other third parties on the business premises.

SmartOffice features include:

  • 720p HD surveillance cameras with flexible zoom, wide view and night vision
  • Up to 30 days of cloud video storage, with permissions for up to four employees to access and retrieve footage
  • Mobile access to live or recorded footage via smart phones or tablets with the SmartOffice Mobile App or from a desktop

The first camera is included with the service, and additional cameras are available for a monthly charge.

"The growing trend for building 'smart cities' will lead to the rise of connected devices across the private and public sectors, and our SmartOffice solution can provide video surveillance to organizations that want to monitor their locations more closely," said Christian Nascimento, executive director of premise services at Comcast Business. "This new service aligns well with our high-capacity Internet and Ethernet offerings and allow SMBs to use the cloud for easy access to, and sharing of, video footage, which can benefit a business in many ways."

As part of the installation process, experienced Comcast Business technicians will work with SMBs to identify critical areas at their location where video monitoring is appropriate, and all camera maintenance, repairs and replacements will be provided by Comcast.
