How Will Cloud Surveillance Ensure My Cannabis Business Maintains Compliance?

July 10th, 2023

If your customers operate a business within the cannabis industry, they should use cloud video surveillance to comply with the myriad of security regulations that govern their industry. Whether they own a cannabis dispensary, growing operation, or retail store, cloud video surveillance offers direct-to-cloud, off-premise storage, and easy-to-use features ideally suited for cannabis operators. 

24/7 Protection Against Theft and Break-Ins 

Between valuable product inventory and large amounts of cash-on-hand, business owners are easy targets for criminals. Many state regulations require 24/7 video footage stored off-premise with specific coverage on the security hardware itself in case it gets stolen. Cloud VS provides the perfect solution by sending video directly to the cloud with triple-redundant backup, so it is always there when an incident or state regulators request proof of video compliance. 

Multi-Site Security

As their business grows, Cloud VS allows them to multiple locations with one easy solution. Your customers can easily add cameras onto the same account, and customize camera views based on location, room, or area – by using their computer or mobile device. Deploying a cloud-based solution like Alibi Cloud VS results in a dramatic reduction in maintenance, hardware, and resources. With Cloud VS, you just have one – as opposed to multiple – dashboards for multiple sites. Since it’s an off-premise cloud-based solution, there’s no hardware to maintain. You eliminate the risk of damaged recorders and the need for internal resources to manage your system. Everything is automatically done for you in the cloud. 

Scalable Storage 

Cannabis business owners must meet strict retention laws that vary depending on the state, ranging from 45 days to two years. Failing to comply with state-mandated storage can result in the surrendering of licenses, prison time, or expulsion from the industry altogether. For example, in California, violating compliance regulations can cost as much as $5,000 in fines – which is four times as much as the license itself!  

Compared to a traditional system that requires you to add a recorder in every location, Cloud VS stores, and securing your data evidence off-site, providing unlimited users and con-current streaming from a centralized location. With Cloud video surveillance, your customers have complete flexibility to scale up (or down) on the storage based on their operational requirements.
