Security is a prime concern to all business owners, and finding the best CCTV package is essential to ensure peace of mind. Adding CCTV to your security system ensures that you can have ‘eyes’ on all operations, internal and external, day and night. Well placed cameras can record movement throughout any business premises. Better still, what the camera sees the camera records in precise detail, and the CCTV system stores all data for later review. No security system manned by guards can deliver the same. People are not able to monitor any area exclusively, and human memory unintentionally distorts or misinterprets information.

CCTV will enhance security in many areas of your business, and you can choose where to place cameras to get maximum protection. A vulnerable point in most businesses is access. Having a security guard placed at the entrance to your business is a move in the right direction, but once the guard is engaging with someone, he or she becomes vulnerable to attack and so does your business. Placing CCTV cameras at the entrance give the security guard the opportunity to screen visitors first, and better protect your business by restricting access to unknown people before engagement.

Criminals list the visible presence of a CCTV surveillance system as a major deterrent. Employees are also less inclined to try to steal from companies or slack-off when they know that their actions are being recorded.

CCTV footage makes disciplinary procedures quicker and objective because it cannot be disputed.

CCTV is much more than surveillance

With the right CCTV package, your business can benefit. By matching a CCTV system to your business’s unique requirements, you can ensure the safety of your business, staff and assets, and gain pertinent data to improve your systems.

Many CCTV systems come with software that offers analytical data. The system can track customer or staff location and walking patterns in your store or premises. It can identify hotspots and build profiles on brands or lines of stock on the floor. With this information at your fingertips, you can identify vulnerable brands or stock and floorplans.

Knowing which products or stock items are susceptible to theft will allow you to secure them better by placing them in a less vulnerable spot. Also knowing which floorplans make pilfering easier will give you valuable insight into how to plan a more secure floorplan.

CCTV can similarly identify potential safety hazards. Early detection of safety hazards is essential to prevent significant loss or harm. By knowing what you are dealing upfront with, you can take informed evasive action to minimise loss.

Accidents and injury on your business premises will be recorded by well-placed cameras, allowing for a quick response. In the event of insurance claims, recorded CCTV footage will ensure that the facts of any event are presented, eliminating the chances of claim disputes.

Finding the right supplier

Deciding to enhance your businesses security is not to be taken lightly, and finding the right supplier is crucial. A cash investment to improve the security of your business is an important decision. Unfortunately, many supplies make promises before they make the sale, but once the money is in their bank account, there is little backup service available.
