When most people think of CCTV, they think in terms of security. Well-placed cameras are a boon to retail stores where they can keep an eye on customers and deter theft, or be used as evidence in the event of prosecution. But CCTV also has benefits outside crime. Here are some ways that CCTV can help you, that you might not have considered.
Protection from Litigation
Having CCTV means you aren’t vulnerable to false claims of accident or injury on your property. You have the evidence of what happened and can more easily determine fault.
Improved Employee Safety
CCTV acts as a deterrent to crime; simply having a camera in place makes crime less likely and that keeps your employees safer. It’s not just about crime, though; cameras also act as a reminder to staff that they need to adhere to your organisation’s policies and workplace health and safety practices. Knowing that someone is watching helps to keep everyone on their best behaviour, and that makes your employees safer all round.
Access From Anywhere
HD CCTV can now be accessed from anywhere in the world. You can check your feed from home, or from your mobile phone. Anywhere you have an internet connection, you’ll be able to log in and keep an eye on your business. This gives you the peace of mind to really enjoy your time away from work while not feeling out of the loop.
The same app that you use to check your CCTV from home can also send you an alert if anything happens while you’re away. If you integrate your CCTV with motion sensors or similar, then you can receive a message as soon as those are tripped; and your cameras can start recording.
Reduced Costs & Better Prices
When you reduce your losses to theft, you reduce the overall costs of your business. You can then pass this saving on to your customers and give yourself a price advantage over your competitors.
Whatever your business, it will benefit from the installation of HD CCTV. As well as the well-known security benefits, there are a whole host of ways in which CCTV will become an integral part of your business.
