Six ways that a Commercial CCTV System can help your business
Have you ever thought about installing a CCTV camera system at your company premises? Today’s systems are designed for maximum convenience and provide high resolution images that are so clear you can see even the smaller details well. Commercial CCTV cameras can be an important way to protect your business and improve security and here are some reasons why...
CCTV cameras are an excellent deterrent to potential offenders. Locate them where they can easily be seen along with signs warning that criminals will be prosecuted. They’re more likely to target businesses that have poor security and knowing they could be caught on camera could well make them think twice.
Unfortunately the presence of cameras might not put every criminal off. But
if they’re caught on CCTV there’s a far greater chance of detection and
ultimately a prosecution thanks to the footage. It may also assist you if
you need to make an insurance claim. Sadly employees might occasionally be
guilty of criminal activity too, so having CCTV cameras strategically
installed in particular areas can help you spot any issues and deal with
CCTV camera footage can also help protect your business from fraudulent insurance, personal injury and misconduct claims. Unfortunately some people do make false or exaggerated claims and CCTV evidence can help preserve your business’ reputation and finances.
A CCTV camera system provides an extra layer of security and that can feel reassuring to your employees. It can help deter aggressive behaviour and assaults towards them. If an employee is working on their own a CCTV camera can assist with putting their mind at ease about their personal security.
The presence of CCTV cameras can help deter aggressive and problem employees from failing to stick to health and safety policies and not attempt any shortcuts. They can also be useful in emergency situations. For example, a CCTV camera system can help you react quickly to a fire breaking out and guide you in deciding the best course of action to protect lives and prevent excessive damage, or if there’s an accident it can mean a faster reaction time in getting help to where it is needed, particularly to lone workers.
There was a time when you had to be on site to monitor your CCTV cameras (or go
to the expense of paying someone else to monitor them for you).
Moreover you would only be able to use footage to find out what
happened after the event. But now business CCTV systems offer remote viewing
on tablets and mobile phones. That means you can keep an eye on your
premises 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world. Spot any suspicious
activity and you can take immediate action.
Even when your premises is occupied, you and your employees can’t be everywhere at once. An app on your phone lets you continually monitor all areas, inside and out, to make sure there are no security concerns anywhere on your site.
To achieve the best possible security, you can have your CCTV system integrated with other parts of your security system like intruder alarms and access control. The moment another part of the system is triggered, you are notified, and can check on your premises immediately via CCTV.
