We have a multi-use commercial building client for whom we have conducted a security risk assessment and recommended among other things, a video system for limited deterrence, forensic purposes as well as to serve as operational support to view people who will be remotely admitted through electronically controlled doors. The client is fearful that they will not reduce their risk but actually incur liability because the camera system will not be monitored "real time" by security staff. I am well aware of the weaknesses in humans watching video for extended periods of time. I am not aware of any successful litigation against an organization that has an unmonitored video system and in fact know where video has been used to negate frivolous claims (e.g., slip and fall). Thought I would float this out to the IPVM community to see if there is anything additional to add here. Thank you.
