Modern digital CCTV systems have some amazing benefits for businesses of all types. Not only can cameras be accessed remotely at any time of day, but they also deliver high-quality images that help protect premises, acting as a strong deterrent that is visible and highly effective.
At FutureTel, we’ve helped a wide range of businesses install state of the art CCTV. Here we take a look at all the benefits of installing a security system that delivers on your needs.
1. High Levels of Security
The major benefit of digital CCTV for your business is that it delivers a high level of security. Visible cameras around your premises will first act as a deterrent and mean that people are less likely to risk breaking in.
Theft or vandalism will cost your business money, of course. If you have cameras on-site you are less likely to fall victim either to outside actors who are looking to break in or employees who want to take advantage of your lack of security.
2. Monitoring Activity in Your Business
CCTV isn’t just about protecting you from people who intend to do you harm. It’s a good way of monitoring what is going on in your business. In some cases, it can also help improve processes and productivity by identifying areas where there are issues.
3. Maintaining Health and Safety
There’s no doubt you will be focused on keeping your staff and visitors to your business safe and secure at all times. Getting digital CCTV installed can certainly help you do this. For example, if you run a retail store, cameras will help you quickly identify problems if a member of staff is being abused or threatened by a customer.
Your staff will also feel safer and have complete peace of mind that they are being monitored and kept safe. In areas like warehouses or manufacturing industries, CCTV can ensure that health and safety protocols are being followed properly.
4. Making Accurate Records of Events
While it is an effective deterrent, CCTV does not mean you won’t be the victim of a theft or other nefarious action on your business property. The standard of digital CCTV cameras nowadays, however, means you will have an accurate and clear record of what has happened.
If there are disputes in your business, a record of events can also be tremendously advantageous.
5. Lowering Insurance Costs
With better security for your business, you should also expect that your insurance costs will come down. Essentially, you are reducing the potential for there to be a claim related to your property and that means insurance companies will be willing to offer discounts.
6. Flexibility for Your Business
Today’s high-quality digital CCTV packages deliver a lot for businesses. For example, you can store footage on a desktop computer and you have the option to access video footage via a smartphone app. That means you are always connected to your business, even when you are out of the office.
Today’s Network Video Recorders or NVRs deliver all the flexibility and quality that modern businesses are searching for. Cameras not only transmit over large distances but provide pin-sharp images and come with hi-tech solutions such as auto-tracking.
