The R170 micro-dome is the smallest, most powerful cloud-native dome camera on the market today.
Unlike other security cameras, the R170 combines high-resolution video and intelligent AI analytics with a discreet micro-dome form factor. In this article, we’ll explore why that benefits restaurants, retail stores, hotels, and any business where aesthetics matter.
Video surveillance is one of the most common physical security solutions used to protect people, places, and assets. However, in some environments, the visual presence of security cameras can disrupt the décor and feel of the area.
The R170 is designed to let businesses preserve the aesthetics of their space. With a low profile and tiny footprint, it blends into the background of any environment.
Studies show that people behave differently when they think they’re being watched. Security cameras—especially bullet cameras—are associated with surveillance and can feel like a warning.
For some organizations, this association is an advantage. Bulky, prominent security cameras double as a deterrent to discourage illegal behavior like theft and vandalism.
However, many businesses want to avoid creating the feeling of surveillance. Even though security cameras are one of the most common ways that organizations protect themselves, they can be off-putting to customers, employees, and visitors.
The R170 provides security and coverage that is equal to or better than larger camera models in a small and unobtrusive form. Businesses can use it to reliably protect people, places, and assets while maintaining a welcoming space.
The R170 delivers industry-leading performance in a small footprint. Pictured left to right: R170, R200, R400.
Dining at a restaurant is about more than the food served; customers expect a certain type of experience when they choose where to eat.
Restaurants seek to create a comfortable dining experience and consider everything from building architecture, to dining room décor, to room lighting. Especially in high-end establishments, bulky security cameras are at odds with the ambiance.
The R170 minimizes this with its discreet form factor. Though small, it delivers full enterprise video surveillance and allows restaurants to address many pain points for managers and owners:
Everything in a store influences customer buying decisions, from the store’s ambiance, to music, to the placement of merchandise. Many retail stores are designed to create a state of comfort and flow for customers.
For some stores, the presence of security cameras can disrupt the shopping experience and discourage customers from spending more time in the store. In particular, cameras can make high-end stores feel less luxurious.
The R170 micro-dome is designed to provide powerful surveillance to retail stores without disrupting the customers’ shopping experience.
An aesthetically-pleasing office can be a huge benefit in the corporate world. It communicates a polished and enterprise status to employees, visitors, and clients.
To fit these needs, the R170 has a sleek and modern appearance that allows organizations to preserve their office space's aesthetics and brand image. As part of Rhombus’ enterprise physical security platform, offices are also able to:
For retailers, offices, restaurants, and other businesses where aesthetics matter, the R170 micro-dome is a perfect fit. It allows organizations to protect their people, buildings, and assets with industry-leading performance while maintaining a welcoming environment and an attractive space.
To further enhance security while remaining discreet, many organizations use IoT sensors to monitor their spaces. These unobtrusive smart sensors can detect motion, air quality, temperature, entry use, and even unusual audio. Users can view and manage synchronized sensor data from the Rhombus Console and get deeper insight into their spaces.
