Video Security Monitoring for Cannabis Growers and Dispensaries

Cannabis business owners and personnel know the challenges of launching and maintaining a business as a grower or dispensary. There are many regulatory hurdles, especially relating to the need to maintain your cannabis growers’ or dispensary license. There are the general struggles of running any new business – especially one based on a product that must be grown according to strict regulations and mandates and which is subject to changing laws. And beyond these challenges, there are significant security concerns.

Theft is an issue for cannabis cultivation facilities and dispensaries. This includes the casual shoplifter, all the way to more serious break-ins and robberies. Marijuana plants carry a high value, magnifying the problem of product diversion for cultivators. The need to stop theft at dispensaries is amplified by the attractively packaged products, many of which are small in size and may be very tempting to shoppers and employees.


Cannabis security compliance is another major consideration. From needing to provide a sitemap detailing security, to ensuring the various locations are properly setup for video monitoring – compliance regulations are tedious, evolving quickly and may vary from state-to-state, county-to-county. In cultivation operations, video surveillance cameras are required throughout, assigned to plants and specific areas within the manufacturing facility. It can be a challenge for growers and sellers to keep up with the changing laws and regulations.

Additionally, there is a need to protect a cultivation facility or dispensary from criminal action and liability. Some cannabis businesses may be targets for a variety of different types of crime, whether inside the facility or simply on the premises. With high levels of footfall in and out of dispensaries, it is important to be protected from claims.

Lastly, cost is always a factor when it comes to the success of business operations. Requirements mandate guarding services, but those can be augmented through proactive video monitoring saving you tens of thousands of dollars year over year.
