Shaw Communications (TSX:SJR.B) has launched SmartSurveillance, a managed video surveillance solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

"Until now, the market has been dominated by off-the-shelf surveillance systems and expensive corporate offerings, with no high-quality solutions designed to meet the needs and budgets of small and medium-sized businesses. SmartSurveillance changes that," said Ron McKenzie, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Shaw Communications.

The new business service is designed to let owners track and record their businesses throughout the day and night, and also provides features and applications that previously have only been available to large businesses, including:

  • Motion search analytics
  • Heat mapping analytics
  • Integration into "Smart" dashboard
  • Video wall
  • Cloud Management
  • Encryption on all local and remote video streams
  • Hardened outdoor cameras

"Shaw already offers one of the most compelling cloud-managed SMB solutions in North America, and adding video security to their dashboard of Cisco Meraki services makes that offering even more robust," said Todd Nightingale, senior vice president and general manager, Cisco Meraki. "Our technology is built on the concept of simplicity. With our line of cloud-managed security cameras, we're making it easier for Canadian SMBs to monitor and address security issues, protecting their assets, employees and customers."
