Benefits of CCTV with the housing sectors:

  • Enhanced Security: CCTV can help to deter crime and make residents feel safer by providing constant surveillance of common areas and entrances. This will also increase the overall security of a housing complex. It will also help to identify and track down suspects in the event of a crime being committed.
  • Improved Safety: CCTV can provide an additional layer of protection for residents, particularly for those who may be vulnerable. It can also help to ensure that emergency services can quickly locate and respond to incidents.
  • Enhanced Privacy: Some social housing residents may be concerned about the privacy implications of CCTV. However, CCTV can actually help to protect privacy by allowing residents to monitor who is coming and going from the housing complex, and by deterring unwanted visitors.
  • Enhanced Community Cohesion: CCTV can help to foster a sense of community among social housing residents by promoting feelings of safety and security. It can also help to build trust between residents and housing authorities.
  • Cost-Effective: CCTV can be a cost-effective way to enhance security and safety in social housing, as it requires minimal maintenance and can be monitored remotely.
  • Monitoring: CCTV can be used to monitor the behaviour of residents and ensure that they are following rules and regulations.
  • Improved Maintenance: CCTV can help housing authorities to identify and address maintenance issues more quickly, leading to a better overall living experience for residents.
  • Evidence: CCTV footage can be used as evidence in legal proceedings, such as in the case of a crime being committed within the housing complex.
  • Reduce/Control Fly Tipping: Visible cameras and clear signage does often deter people from illegally dumping waste in areas that they shouldn’t. In the likely event that illegal waste is dumped, the clarification of the CCTV cameras will always help in bringing to justice those perpetrators that were responsible.
  • Control Waste Management: Clear signs and cameras covering communal bin stores does place more of a tighter control on the general house hold waste placed into these bins. It also hugely discourages any waste from non-tenants of a block or even the fly tipping of waste into these areas.

Overall, CCTV is an extremely valuable cost effective tool for enhancing security, safety, and community cohesion in social housing. If you’re interested in a bespoke CCTV system, get in touch with I-HT to discuss your requirements.
