How to Create a Surveillance Ecosystem for Your Cannabis Operation

Exactly what is a surveillance ecosystem when applied to cannabis operations?

We’re all familiar with biological ecosystems. A coral reef is a great example. Specific organisms and micro-organisms are present and interact in a manner to support the food chain. Also present are the mineral-rich, warm waters that coral needs to form colonies and survive.

A cannabis surveillance ecosystem is not that different. Substitute saltwater and marine life for a complex electronic network, one that also functions as an interconnected system.

The modern model utilizes surveillance cameras as more than a deterrent factor. Rather than a basic passive/reactive system your security cameras become amplified in a proactive approach of expanded usage.

Once end users stop viewing their security cameras as a passive system, the numerous applications for our professional-grade surveillance systems are quickly recognized. Integrating a few key components to a well-designed security camera system opens up valuable data access to every phase of your cannabis operation.

Benefits in time, dollars, and management begin the moment of installation!

All the right parts

Claims are easy to make. Every product, every company cannot be the best.

Our sincere claim at SCW is that we have gone to all lengths to secure and provide the highest quality components and the latest and best technology available--all for you. That means there isn’t a single weak link in the chain of security we offer.

Gain control of your facility’s accessibility

Your cannabis operation is considered a high-value target by criminals. The product is an irresistible enticement and the typical remote location adds incentive to attack. How can you counterattack this threat?

The goal is to keep the bad guys out while allowing easy access for employees and clients. Though that might sound difficult, there is a significant solution.

SCW Access Control is a reliable mobile entry system with scalable cloud-based software. Fast and flexible the integration capabilities are endless. Secure, touchless access offers convenience as you’ve never seen!

Our touchless access control and automatic door opening system functions with convenient mobile credentials and hands-free unlock configurations. It improves your security posture by using one IT-approved platform to securely authenticate across your entire business.

The system also adds an extra layer of security by leveraging biometric and multi-factor authentication built-in to the user’s smartphone.

The features and functions of SCW’s Access Control are impressive:

  • With a wave of their hand, users unlock the door without needing to take out their phone or open the app to unlock the door. Via its smartphone app and Bluetooth, the phone can remain in the user’s pocket, purse, or backpack.
  • Touchless door activation method keeps people moving through your facility without creating crowding entryways.
  • Choose which areas are accessible to specific employees or visitors--administrative areas, private offices, growing facilities, garage areas, shipment facilities, tool sheds
  • The fastest, most secure entry experience with patented
  • Triple Unlock technology--cellular, Wi-fi, and Bluetooth. Works even if the internet is down
    Mobile badge, Apple watch, encrypted key cards, and fob accessibility as well
  • Automatic entry detection makes it easy to unlock the right door
  • Activate Lockdown plans in the event of an emergency, all from the app
  • Instantly issue and revoke access from any device to adjust for personnel changes
  • Remote unlock lets users open doors from anywhere
  • Digital Guest Pass eliminates shared key cards and controls entry and exit times
  • Easy to install, and integrates with your existing security system
  • When it comes to maintaining federal and state-mandated security measures, touchless entry and automated door systems play a key role in creating future-proof spaces that are safe, secure, and adaptable at your cannabis grow operation.

    The eyes have it: without optics there’s nothing

    Your security system is only as good as the quality of video capture your cameras provide. And we feel safe in saying that you’re likely dealing with outdated or underperforming equipment. Maybe too few cameras, too little range, and a lack of well-defined resolution.

    Blurry images aren’t going to resolve liability disputes or solve crimes.

    “Value” is the word to best describe SCW cameras. It’s a term earned by performance, durability, and price. In the context of getting what you pay for, SCW cameras are a high-value purchase.

    We’re not bashful about bragging on our cameras! We think so much of them that we offer a free three-year warranty with your purchase. Or expand that to five years. That’s because we’ve combined durable construction with our high-tech optics.

    As a cannabis grow operation, you rely on your cameras to survive full-time exposure to the elements. You’ll find SCW products more than up to the task--none of that plastic housing commonly found on other cameras. Feel confident. Our super-tough aluminum and ceramic molding won’t crumble and decay like the plastic competition.

    From our sleek bullet, dome, PTZ, or panoramic cameras, SCW’s IP digital cameras all shoot in high definition (HD). Long-range models, audio input and output ability, as well as a person-detected activated strobe light with audio warning cameras, fit well with the demands of your operation. With resolution from 1080P to 4k (4x1080P), they each provide quality images that blow away the competition.

    Outstanding IR Night Vision capabilities are also built into every SCW professional-grade camera.

    Modernize. With a new SCW surveillance ecosystem, you will truly see the difference.

    Check out these standard features:

      • Motion detection, continuous, and event recording modes
      • Infrared night vision
      • Send Snapshot Emails
      • Commercial-grade aluminum molding
      • 1 click firmware update
      • Anti-reflective glass
      • Auto-grade LEDs
      • Headlight compensation
      • Auto defog

    SCW cameras perform to the highest standards. SCW cameras outlast the competition.
