IMPORTANCE OF CCTV ON YOUR PREMISES
Having security is essentially important across all walks of life to ensure the overall safety and possessions of all individuals are broadly protected. Having a fence and keeping your doors locked may is no longer enough to keep you and your home safe from intruders.
Although security guards provide an element of protection in most homes and companies, their eyes and ears are not extensive enough to provide an over watch of the entire premises. This is where cameras within CCTV security systems play a crucial role.
The following are some of the concerns both home and business have and to why CCTV systems are crucial and extremely necessary for businesses today:
Reduce Cost and Risk
CCTV security systems prove themselves as the best investment as soon as they are installed. Full view of your premises and real-time recording as well as remote online access by owner/manager lowers the risk and prevents costly incidents such as burglary, fire, vandalism, etc.
Prevent and Deter Crime
Criminals target buildings and facilities when they see there is no monitoring or watchdog. The very presence of CCTV cameras on an installation is enough to deter potential criminals and prevent their action at the outset.
A well-designed CCTV infrastructure is practically impenetrable and can provide 100% coverage. Multiple cameras keeping an eye on each other’s blind spots in addition to keeping an eye on the most vulnerable areas of the property, full monitoring is not hampered by human errors such as the guard being on shut-eye or being busy with something else.
Keep Your Employees Honest
CCTV cameras on the outside prevent break-ins by outsiders, but if installed inside the facility to monitor sensitive materiel, goods, and assets, as well as vulnerable areas of a facility, it will prevent wrong doing by company employees.
Encourage Good Behaviour
CCTV cameras help in creating discipline among employees and customers alike. CCTV cameras encourage employees and buyers to be on their best behaviour alike.
Prevent Safety Incidents
CCTV cameras can be installed in high-risk areas of a business facility or establishment. These high-risk and accident-prone areas include locations where fires can break out as well as locations where a potential danger to the building and personnel exist.
Assist Law Enforcement
CCTV recording of the scene of the crime, allow law enforcement agencies to use the footage and release photos and videos of the culprits to the public. A picture or a video record of the suspect can make a huge difference when it comes to making an arrest and getting dangerous criminals off the street.
