Why your business needs a CCTV system even before it begins trading

HD CCTV is a remarkably efficient tool for monitoring business premises and sites. It deters prospective criminals, while generating crisp, clear images that make it easy to identify intruders. They are suitable for newer business and well-established ones and can be deployed by both small to medium enterprises and large corporations with equal efficacy. But should you invest in them if you’re still in the process of setting up a business?

Here at I-HT, we think that new businesses should install security cameras before they even open their doors. We believe that it’s never too early to start investing in your business’s security. Today, we’ll explain why.

1. Protecting your assets

Long before your business starts trading, you are likely to move valuable physical assets into your offices and other premises. For example, you may set up IT systems and other office equipment in your offices or move essential apparatus into warehouses. The fact that your business isn’t open yet won’t stop criminals from trying to steal these assets. Installing CCTV cameras as early as possible is the best way to protect them.

2. Preparing to open your business

Once your business starts trading, it will become harder to track potential intruders and disruptive influences. After all, more people will have legitimate reasons to enter your offices and other premises, making it easier for intruders to hide in plain side. You may also be too busy to have CCTV cameras installed. We therefore recommend installing HD CCTV cameras before your business begins trading. This will make it possible to keep on top of potential threats and spot would-be intruders, while also saving yourself time and effort later on.

3. Sending the right message

Even before your business starts trading, you should start sending the message that you’re serious about security. If you wait until your business is ready to open its doors before you install CCTV cameras, criminals may see you as a soft target. In contrast, installing a HD CCTV system early can permanently deter them, just by sending the right message.

At I-HT, we sell a variety of different CCTV products that are suitable for a spectrum of different business. If you’re in the process of setting up a new business, contact us today and let us help with your security requirements.
