5 Reasons Every Business Needs CCTV


Making sure your business is secure and safe is important. Whether your business has been a victim of crime in the past or you just want to keep an eye on what’s going on, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras can help you prevent crimes through monitoring, recording and transmitting images.


Here are 5 ways CCTV can help keep your business safe and secure.


  1. Deter crime


Anyone planning to carry out an illegal activity on your property will be seriously deterred by CCTV cameras as the presence will let them know that they are being watched and recorded.


  1. Monitor activity


CCTV enables you to remotely monitor and view what is happening at each location you have a camera installed. This means that even when you are not on site, the security coverage can be streamed directly to your smartphone so that you know exactly what is happening and where.


  1. Cost-effective


Unlike security guards, CCTV won’t take a day off. Instead, it provides a 24/7 surveillance which operates on its own. By installing CCTV on your business premises, this may also reduce your insurance premiums.


  1. Settle disputes


Whether it is a feud or an altercation between staff or customers, CCTV footage can help settle these issues. Cameras never lie so by referring to CCTV footage, you will know the truth.


  1. Keep records


CCTV isn’t just for crime prevention; it can also help your business operations to run smoothly. For example. It is always a good idea to keep records of when your staff are clocking in and out of your site or when deliveries or visitors arrive. By keeping footage of this, it may be useful to refer back to.
