Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) – The Benefits for Businesses

Closed circuit television (CCTV) security systems can range from simple systems comprising of a single camera and a monitor to very elaborate and complex arrangements, including hundreds of cameras, digital recorders and multiple operators.

The benefits that CCTV technology has brought to businesses are plentiful. Some are obvious, others less so. But companies utilising CCTV often report immediate and noticeable benefits after having a system installed. These include the following :

Deterrence – CCTV systems are a great deterrent to potential thieves. The thought of knowing that they are being watched and monitored often keeps would-be offenders away.

Safer working environment – CCTV not only helps to ensure adherence to health and safety policies, it can also prevent misconduct in the workplace and be a valuable tool used for staff training.

Fear reduction – Most people acknowledge that the presence of CCTV cameras makes them feel safer. Feeling safe gives peace of mind to business owners, employees and customers.

Detection and Prosecution CCTV evidence can be vital in the detection and prosecution of criminals. It is much easier to identify and initiate legal proceedings against offenders with visual evidence from CCTV footage.

Security and Surveillance. Strategically placed cameras can be both monitored and recorded 24/7, all year round. Digital recorders can record cameras for long periods of time, whilst remote monitoring systems allow watchfulness and vigilance of business premises from anywhere in the world via the internet using a phone or computer.

Increase Business Efficiencies and Profitability: In addition to providing a safer environment for employees and business owners, CCTV security systems can also improve business efficiency and profitability. Thieves and shoplifters are less likely to strike a business that is protected by closed circuit television cameras, thereby reducing retail and business theft.

Reduction in Insurance Premiums and Fraudulent Claims Installing a CCTV system can greatly reduce insurance premiums and, through its ability to record evidence, be helpful in the case of fraudulent or illegitimate accident claims.
