If you own a business, you need to have closed-circuit security cameras installed on your premises. CCTV cameras allow you to keep your business secure at all hours of the day regardless of where your business is located. If you do not have security cameras or surveillance systems in your business, there are many advantages of CCTV installation that you should consider.
1. Deter Criminal Activity
Did you know that most crimes that impact businesses are crimes of opportunity? What that means is that most would-be criminals choose to trespass or steal when they feel that there is an opportunity to without the fear of being caught. But that happens less and less when there are visible security cameras that deter those same individuals from committing crimes.
2. Actively Monitor Your Property
Other advantages of CCTV include monitoring your property. Being able to see and monitor the activity around your property can make your employees and visitors who shop at your business feel more secure and comfortable knowing that they have an eye in the sky keeping a watchful eye over them.
3. Collect Evidence of Incidents
Every now and then— hopefully not too often— you may encounter situations where you will need to call on the video surveillance footage in order to gather evidence for law enforcement or the insurance company. This footage may be related to an incident that happens in your store or you may be asked to provide footage for an incident that simply happened in the line of sight of your security cameras. Either way, it’s a good thing to have!
4. Inform Decision-Making Processes
As a business owner, you may be put in a situation where there is a dispute between employees or even customers, and you are called on to make a judgment. But if you were not there to witness an incident, how can you make an informed decision?
Having video footage to look back on can help you make decisions and judgments based on the surveillance footage that you can now see with your own eyes, even if you missed the original interaction.
5. Accurate Record Keeping
When you’re running a business, keeping records is an important practice that can help you makes sure that you always have all of your i’s dotted and t’s crossed. With a CCTV installation, you will be able to keep an accurate record of when your employees clock in and out, when deliveries are made, and who enters the premises, and at what time. All of this information will ensure that you have your back covered in any situation that may arise.
