Installing POS, Wi-Fi Cables During Construction Saves Restaurants Thousands of Dollars

Restaurant construction is one of the most demanding tasks for restaurant owners. To streamline the process, we recommend having trained experts install the necessary cables for Wi-Fi, security cameras, audio, TVs and your POS system while the walls are open during the construction process.

The Importance of Early Installation

Low voltage cabling is the wiring infrastructure within your restaurant’s walls that provides a lifeline for your business. When construction contractors are in the midst of new construction or a restaurant remodel, LittleGecko Technology Consultants are able to complete the wiring process without additional construction costs.

Early Installation Can Save You Money

Unfortunately, many restaurant owners overlook startup costs associated with digital technology while the restaurant construction company’s work is underway. It’s only after the restaurant construction crew closes the walls that it occurs to restaurant owners that wiring is needed for Wi-Fi, audio, the POS system,TV and security systems.

At this point, the cost skyrockets, as restaurant technology contractors must fish cables thru the closed walls, adding to construction costs. Keeping this in mind, it’s imperative that restaurant owners prioritize wiring from the get-go, and make construction management aware that technology consultants will be installing the needed systems before the construction crew closes the walls.

Keeping the Lines of Communication Open is Key

Restaurant owners who need a contractor should make the contractor and restaurant construction crew aware of the installation plan from the start. Working as a contractor is simplified when restaurant owners keep the lines of communication open, so it’s important that all parties are aware of construction and wiring plans.

Construction project management will be impressed by your initiative, thus ensuring a positive relationship and reputation for your restaurant business.

Why Use a POE Security Camera System in Your Restaurant?

PoE Security Camera System

What is Power over Ethernet (POE)?

It is a technology that allows the network cables to carry electrical power.

For example, a digital security camera in your restaurant requires that two connections be made when it is installed:

First Connection: A video connection to stream the video recording and display equipment at your business place.

Second Connection: A power connection that will deliver the electrical power the camera requires in order to operate.

Note: If your restaurant is PoE Security Camera System enabled, only the network connection needs to be made, as it will also receive its electrical power from this cable.

Why Use Power Over Ethernet?

Specifying POE brings many advantages to an installation at your business:

Time-saving and inexpensive – It reduces the time and cost of having a POE system electrical power cabling installed. Installation of network cables does not require a licensed electrician and it can be located anywhere.

Flexible – You can easily relocate and reposition an electrical outlet and devices such as wireless access and IP cameras whenever required.

Security – Power Over Ethernet is intelligent. It is specially designed to protect network equipment from underpowering, overload, or any kind of incorrect installation.

Reliability – Power Over Ethernet powers itself from central and universally compatible sources rather than a collection of those distributed wall adapters. It can be controlled to easily disable or reset devices or backed-up by an uninterrupted power supply.

Scalability – If you have power available on your network at your restaurant, that means installation and distribution of the network connections is simple and effective.

Devices That You Can Use With Power Over Ethernet

POE can be used with many applications, but the major key areas are:

VoIP phones – If you’re using VoIP phones in your restaurant, this is an original POE application. Using POE means phones have only a single connection to a wall socket, and it can be remotely powered down like older analog systems. Note: They’re easy to operate!

IP cameras – POE can be found everywhere now on networked surveillance cameras; POE enables easy repositioning and fast deployment.

Wireless Devices – Wifi access points are commonly POE compatible to allow remote location away from AC outlets and relocating site surveys. Note: POE can be used with wireless devices as well.

4 Benefits of Using Power Over Ethernet Camera

If you’re considering a new video surveillance system for your home or business, the options can be overwhelming. Little Gecko Technologies can help you choose the best system for your needs and help to take advantage of the newest tech advances. One surveillance option to consider is a PoE security camera system. Unlike traditional cameras that require two cables to connect, PoE uses only one cable and is a smart, cost-effective way to keep your property secure. Here are a few reasons to consider this type of surveillance system:

Ease of Installation

Little Gecko will perform a quick and seamless installation of your surveillance system. One benefit of PoE cameras is versatile placement. Since the power to the device flows through the Ethernet cable, there is no need for an AC power source, meaning the cameras can be installed virtually anywhere. Additionally, if you find the need to relocate your cameras, this can be done without hassle. Whether you want obvious or discreet placement, a PoE camera system offers versatility.

Cost-Effectiveness

PoE system installation costs only a fraction of traditional camera installation. Since PoE doesn’t require an AC outlet, this means fewer supplies and labor costs for extensive wiring. Contact Little Gecko for a consultation and price quote.

Reliability

PoE cameras are backed by an uninterruptible supply of power. Even in power outages, the camera will continue to function.

User Friendly

The advent of PoE has greatly changed the way surveillance video footage is monitored. Now, you can remotely access the PoE cameras using an app and even download the footage to your laptop or mobile device. Find peace of mind in knowing your property is secure while you conveniently monitor from afar. Little Gecko will walk you through the use of the camera and apps and make sure you feel comfortable self-monitoring.
