One of the best ways you can increase security at your business is by installing a closed circuit television (CCTV) system. A CCTV system allows you to monitor your business remotely, 24/7. It is also a great way to deter thieves and shoplifting in your business. Plus once you make the upfront investment, it is very easy to maintain a CCTV system.
A CCTV system is composed of a series of cameras. You can work with a CCTV system installer to determine the best location for installing cameras in your business. New internet protocol (IP) CCTV systems have high image resolutions. You can even purchase an HD IP CCTV system. The images produced on new IP CCTV systems are crystal clear and will allow you to easily view what is happening at your business. You will be able to easily identify people’s faces and actions with an IP CCTV system.
Another advantage to an IP CCTV system is you can access the video feed from anywhere. With older systems, you have to have a closed circuit television system set up on site to view videos. Now, you can view live video feed from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. You do not have to be on site to monitor your video feeds.
Having video cameras up also deters robbers and shoplifting. When people are looking to commit a crime, they do not want to get caught. They are looking to steal from stores that do not have security measures in place. If you have security cameras in visible locations in your businesses, people will not want to steal from your business. After you install a CCTV system, you should see a decrease in shoplifting and theft in your store.
It now costs the same to install an old analogy CCTV system or a new IP CCTV system that you can monitor from any location. Installing a CCTV system requires an upfront investment in the system. Once your system is installed, it is easy to maintain and does not require continuous financial investment.
