CCTV is a great addition to any business; it offers a range of benefits without an extortionate price tag. Cameras are installed into your premise and signals are transmitted to recording devices and monitors. Advancements with security technology mean that many CCTV solutions now offer remote access which allows the operator to monitor live and stored footage anywhere.
More and more businesses are choosing to install CCTV to protect their stock, property and staff. It is estimated that in the UK there are now more cameras than people. Businessowners are opting to integrate CCTV solutions with access controls and intruder alarms to maximise security.
There are a range of benefits that come with CCTV including crime deterrent. The physical presence of a camera alone can deter thieves from illegally entering or vandalising your property. The camera reminds criminals that they are breaking the law. In the unlikely event that a burglar should ignore CCTV and break-in, the recorded footage will help law enforcement to conduct a criminal investigation.
CCTV allows you to monitor activity across your office, site or store to monitor storerooms, monitor staff and monitor footfall. This can be used to deduce helpful data to increase store spending, staff productivity and more. IT can also ensure that health & safety procedures are being followed at all times to limit the risk of injury or property damage.
Typically, business owners choose to install cameras at entrances and exits, blind spots and key locations such as receptions, tills, waiting rooms etc. It is cost-effective to install CCTV in multiple locations as the cameras require minimal upkeep and maintenance. They will need occasional cleaning to keep the lens and housing clean and it is recommended that annual maintenance checks are completed by a professional company.
