Hi everyone I need some advice. I will be working at an optical retail company's security department in three months and I've been doing some research to prepare myself. According to my manager, my team's main task would be re-checking theft issues and focusing on internal loss prevention . However, it is quite challenging since we have more than 300 stores. There was an incident back in 2018 of an employee stealing that took the team 3 whole months looking for evidence via video playback! I've proposed to my manager that we could try using video analytics softwares and after browsing through security magazines and vendor lists from international security exhibitions, I have some of the software manufacturers in mind. But I would like ask for some suggestions and comments here first so that I have a clearer picture of what our team is looking for. First of all, are there any trustworthy VMS companies that you have heard of or perhaps worked with.? And is it possible to analyze a particular person by his/her clothing and quickly find this person within just a few seconds? Also, what is the usual price for a single channel? Last but not least, do you have any advice regarding working at a retail company or being a part of the security department? Thank you all in advance!
