Remote IP security cameras for your 24 hour gym or fitness center

Remote IP security cameras

 

If you want to have a second option for security cameras for your gym, here’s one that allows you to be able to watch whats going on in your gym over any internet connection, through your internet connection, and even on a cell phone with a downloadable app.

The cameras have to have an electrical connection and an internet connection, they have their own IP address, so they don’t use your computers IP address.

Learn every detail of how to open a 24 hour fitness center gym at www.how2ownagym.com

I have google android cell phone, and there are a few apps that are very cheap to buy, I think I paid $3.99 for mine, that you download from the app store, the iphone has apps also.

 Then the app, once started ask you for info like the ip address,  admin, and password, that’s on the camera.

Then you can view that camera on your phone or computer. I’m sure you’ve seen some websites that say, “see live view”, like most beach front hotels have now.

One concern I do have with a web cam is that someone can hack into the system and view your webcam in order to rob your business. You wouldn’t want to do like hotels and let anyone have the access info, you only want it for your use for security.

You can buy these cameras anywhere they sell security equipment, just search for “Wireless IP Cameras” or “Remote IP Cameras”.

Here’s a link to a camera on ebay with all the info.

How to Start and/or Build a 24 hour Fully Automated Fitness Center, Gym, or Health Club from scratch, including quality exercise equipment, tanning beds, gym software, 24 hour access system, security system, and office equipment, just like I did

Learn from Shannon Cook, a current gym owner, former general contractor, commercial building landlord, and Fitness Marketing Consultant, how to go from your IDEA to the Grand Opening of your Fitness Center.

Also, how to convert an existing gym into a 24 hour fitness center by installing a 24 hour automated door access system, 911 system, and security cameras, and if that’s not enough, the gym door access system comes with a gym and fitness center management software system

 I’m so positive you will know everything about how to start a gym form scratch after reading this book, that i’m giving you 182.5 days, that’s 6 months to try it, and if you don’t like it, return it for a full refund

Why listen to me?

Because I did everything wrong before I did anything right. Fortunately I stuck with it and found some very successful businessmen to guide me, then innovated by turning my gym into a 24 hour fully automated gym, then spent over $15,000 to learn marketing the old fashioned way.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

First off, I’ll teach you how I took my gym from 50 members to over 300 in less than 3 months and exactly what I did and still do to make my little back woods gym one of the best known in my town.

Then you’ll learn;

If you want to know all the wrong things I did, here they are;

  • When I opened I picked the wrong location
  •  used the wrong subcontractors
  •  bought exercise equipment from the wrong people and also bought the wrong equipment
  •  finished my concrete floor with too little sealer
  •  painted some rooms the wrong colors for the right psychological effect (which you’ll learn)
  • Made the tanning bed rooms too small
  • Offered childcare when I wasn’t set up for it correctly
  • Hired the wrong employees
  • Hired the wrong personal trainers
  • Installed the wrong size air conditioner
  • Signed contracts for phone lines that I could have negotiated for a lot less
  • Used the wrong lighting
  • Got sued for $190,000 because of a contract that really didn’t exist (here’s where I made the biggest mistake in believing lady justice is blind, really justice has one eye open, and she’s looking for $$$ not justice), so learn what not to do.

I then turned my business around completely and figured out on my own what no one else would tell me, and I don’t blame them, after all, they learned the way I did.
