6 reasons to install CCTV at your business premises
1. Get increased peace of mind with CCTV coverage that never sleeps.
CCTV cameras be installed to monitor all areas (including blind spots) of your premises and immediate surrounds, and with real-time remote video surveillance you really are covered 24/7. A CCTV system never sleeps, so it boosts the efficacy and reliability of security personnel and in certain cases can replace or reduce the need for security guards, thus saving costs.
2. Lower the risks of shoplifting, break in, burglary and vandalism
With a full view of your business premises plus real-time recorded footage, and the option of remote online access via smartphone, computer, tablet etc., you can react immediately to any risk or danger and enhance the safety and security of your employees, customers and of course your business.
3. Motivate excellent staff practices.
CCTV allows you to monitor the behaviour of your staff, while recorded footage provides valuable evidence in the case of any disputes or disciplinary issues, in that it not only provides proof of wrongdoing, but it also serves to prevent false accusation. It has been shown that knowledge of a CCTV presence is likely to have a positive effect on both staff and customer behaviour.
4. Early fire and flood warnings save lives and money.
Early fire detection of fire or flooding caused by a burst pipe or geyser means rapid action can be taken to minimise loss of life, injury and damage to premises.
5. CCTV provides evidence to back up insurance claims
CCTV footage is invaluable when trying to submit an insurance claim for an accident or event, particularly where no witnesses were present.
6. Catch criminals in the act and increase the chances of conviction
CCTV recorded footage at a crime scene can be used as evidence when arresting and convicting criminals, and getting them off the streets, thus increasing not only your safety and security, but the community’s at large.
CCTV’s are becoming increasingly important for the protection of your property, assets and business. Would-be criminals are often deterred by the presence of CCTV cameras, and footage provides valuable evidence and or information which can result in arrests, prosecution and conviction.
