Today, CCTV (closed circuit television) is used globally to monitor and transmit video surveillance of specific areas. The advantages of this monitoring are numerous. Here is a look at the principal benefits of installing CCTV cameras in the home, business, motorways, train stations and congested areas such as airports.
Advantage #1 of CCTV: The Ability to Protect your Employees and Customers
As a business owner, you are responsible for looking after both your customers and those that work for you. The use of CCTV will allow you to protect anyone present on your premises. This is especially important if you, or someone on your premises, are assaulted. The presence of CCTV also acts as an effective deterrent as the chances of being clearly identified are high.
Advantage #2: The Ability to Protect your Business from Lawsuits
CCTV can also protect your business from people looking to make a quick payday. Customers have been known to put objects in their food to get a free meal or strategically pour water on the floor causing a slip and claim compensation. CCTV allows business owners to monitor any fraudulent activity and prevent any false accusations and legal claims.
Advantage #3: The Ability to Monitor Employees
Employers must trust their employees. This is essential for any business – sadly no business is safe from theft, fraud or conduct that is not befitting a professional environment. If you’ve encountered fraud or theft before then you’ll understand the annoyance, frustration and deflated feelings that result in the action. In some cases monitoring employees is the right course of action. An additional bonus is that you’ll be able to keep in the know of the goings-on in your business and monitor productivity.
Advantage #4: The Ability to Eradicate Crime Altogether
As mentioned earlier one of the primary benefits of CCTV is that it’ll completely eradicate any criminal activity in your workplace. Indeed, no matter if you work in a restaurant, retail store or office environment, the employment of security cameras will allow you to identify the perpetrator clearly and deter anyone considering commitment an offense.
Advantage #5: The Ability to Monitor Traffic and Public Areas
CCTV is employed frequently to monitor traffic and areas of public congestion. This monitoring is especially useful in identifying hit and run accidents if the perpetrator has fled the scene. CCTV can allow you keep a close eye on areas too big to monitor on foot.
