At John Whitford Communications, we’ve worked with banks, credit unions, and other financial services firms throughout Atascadero, CA, and we take pride in providing our customers with the latest technology, protection and support in the security industry, at the best value.

Even if your Atascadero, CA financial institution already has a video security system in place, it’s important to review your system’s capabilities periodically. Most financial businesses in Atascadero, CA will find that they can benefit from a security upgrade. Recent advances in video security technology include multi megapixel resolution cameras, recorders with higher channel counts and advanced file compression technology, comprehensive central management software, remote management via mobile devices, advanced video analytics, and more. Here's a look at some of the numerous benefits that today's modern security systems have to offer:

Multi-Megapixel Resolution

The days of grainy, low quality security camera images are long gone. Today’s video security camera systems feature resolutions up to 8.0 megapixels (4K), for crystal clear high definition video images day or night. This makes it easy to identify suspects, and provides you with court admissible evidence that can be used to prove your case in legal proceedings.

Central Management Software

All video security systems installed by John Whitford Communications feature a user-friendly software app that’s loaded with powerful features to enhance your management and viewing experience, including drag-and-drop system and camera selection, customizable displays, device grouping, alarms and notifications, remote system management, and much more.

Mobile App

All video security systems installed by John Whitford Communications feature an iOS and Android compatible mobile app, with incredibly robust features. View both live and recorded video; view up to 16 cameras at once on your smartphone or tablet; take snapshots or record live video directly from your mobile device; store up to 16 devices at once; add, delete, or modify connected devices; digitally zoom in during live video or remote playback modes; and much more. The mobile app gives you complete freedom to monitor your Atascadero, CA financial services business anytime, from wherever you are – across town, or halfway around the globe.

Higher Channel Counts

Today’s security video recorders can support as many as 128 channels, providing an economical solution for large camera installations, and giving you the flexibility to “future proof” your business, should you need to add more cameras at a later date.

H.265+ Compression

The latest processor technology delivers up to an 80% reduction in bandwidth and storage requirements, enabling you to securely store months of recorded video footage.

24/7 Monitoring

Modern video security systems can be easily connected to 24/7 monitoring services. This allows your surveillance system to work in tandem with remote teams to keep a watchful eye on your business. If an incident occurs, the monitoring service can dispatch law enforcement authorities to your business within minutes.

Covert Cameras

Today's hidden cameras are more discrete than ever. They can be disguised as clocks, smoke detectors, and a range of other ordinary objects. While visible cameras are important for crime deterrence, it's also important to utilize hidden cameras, particularly to combat theft and employee shrink.

Vandalproof Cameras

Many video surveillance cameras are also tamper and vandal resistant, able to stand up to direct impacts from criminals attempting to disable the system. John Whitford Communications offers cameras with enclosures rated IK10 for impact resistance.


HD-TVI technology allows the latest high resolution HD video security cameras to be installed using your existing wiring, if you currently have an analog video security system. This can save valuable time and money during installation.
