sends a clear message to everyone that you are serious about safety and security.
Here are 8 reasons why you must install a CCTV camera in your business:
- Protects Property and Employees
Having security cameras installed will help protect employees as well as property. This includes computers, copiers, office or cubicle equipment, files, furniture or foodservice operations (like an oven). Everything that is valuable to the business is better protected by having installed security cameras.
- Stop Employee Theft & Misuse of Company Resources
Employees may think they are not being watched but installing CCTV surveillance cameras will make them think twice before they abuse their position or steal money or resources from your company. For example, employees might have thought that it was just an ordinary coffee break when they stole a cup of coffee from the company pantry by getting it for free. But because all employees have to clock in and out for breaks, those who do not pay would be exposed by the security camera footage.
- Helps Solve Problems More Quickly
Many companies that have installed CCTV cameras reported faster resolution of problems as well as fewer conflicts because of the security camera footage. For example, installing security cameras in the warehouse will help determine if damage to a product is caused by how it was handled or packed.
- Helps Reduce Insurance Premiums
If you are looking to save money on your business or commercial insurance premiums, having a CCTV surveillance system installed will help lower the cost of your policy. This is because businesses with cameras have fewer break-ins and theft claims. If you own property, installing security cameras helps protect against physical damage due to weather or vandalism. If you are a transportation company, having security cameras will help protect against cargo theft or loss.
- Helps Catch Crooks
Many businesses that have installed security cameras reported faster resolution of problems as well as fewer conflicts due to the security camera footage. For example, installing surveillance cameras in the warehouse will help determine if damage to the product is caused by how it was handled or packed.
- Have Proof for Insurance Claims
Without security camera footage as proof, your insurance company may not approve your claim if you have been burglarized. In some cases, without CCTV cameras installed as evidence, insurance companies might suspect that the incident is a cover-up to receive compensation from the insurance company while actually disguising a theft or break-in.
- Reduce Employee Turnover and Improve Productivity
Many employees feel safer when working in an environment where there is a CCTV camera installed. At the same time, having security cameras installed shows your employees that you care about their safety and want to protect them from any potential danger. And in the long run, reducing employee turnover can help improve productivity and ultimately boost your business’s bottom line.
- Helps Reduce Legal Liability
CCTV surveillance cameras help reduce legal liability by providing proof that you provided a safe working environment for employees and customers alike. When adopting this technology, companies must also ensure that they do not violate any existing privacy laws that are in place regarding CCTV surveillance.
Installing CCTV cameras in your business premises will help protect your employees and property. Not only does it discourage violent crime, but it also deters other crimes such as theft which can cost you thousands of dollars.
