Video ??

Here is an off the wall idea (or maybe it is a mounted on the wall idea) I got at CES.

Video survelence cameras have changed dramatically. They are now cheap and easy to set up with wireless technology. It is now cheap and easy to record months of activity off the cameras with digital recording and high capacity hard drives.

These systems are designed to be used to record activity after hours or to be monitored by a security guard in a room somewhere. But we could use the same technology in a completely different manner.

How about a camera in each treatment room focused on the chair. We could monitor who was in each room. If they were ready for treatment. How the staff was funtioning. We would have liability protection from some types of claims.

We could monitor the reception (waiting) room to see who arrived, when and what they were doing.

In other words now that this technology is inexpensive and easy to set up and use it could be used for a lot of things we would never have imagined. It doesn’t have to be used just to catch bad guys it can be used and an everyday extension of our eyes to see what is happening in the office.
