CCTV, also known as Closed-circuit Television or video surveillance is the use of cameras in a specific place to keep an eye on what’s happening at a specific business or place. CCTV cameras allow you to view events live or view recorded archive footage.
What are the advantages of using CCTV cameras for your business?
1. As a crime deterrent
When you have a CCTV system installed at your business it immediately acts as a serious deterrent to anyone thinking of carrying out illegal activity on your premises. The sight of a camera is often enough of a deterrent to significantly reduce the risk of crime.
2. Monitoring activity
Camera surveillance also allows you to keep a track of what is happening on your premises where they are installed. This also means you can have total peace of mind because you can track the activity of workers and who is visiting your site.
3. Collecting evidence
In the unfortunate event where a crime takes place at your business, having a CCTV system in place means that you can begin to build and collect evidence. Cameras allow you to figure out what happened, or piece together what occurred, and perhaps even identify who. Crimes can be solved more easily with CCTV acting as additional evidence in the case.
4. Decision making
There comes a time when disputes may need to be settled, if you have footage from security cameras then this can be very important. By referring to CCTV footage, you’ll know the truth when it comes to employee feuds or alterations between staff and/ or customers.
5. Keeping records
It is always important to keep records of staff and visitors coming and going at your business location as this allows you to check everything is running smoothly.
