Personal security is an area of increasing concern for Australians, and Castle Security is here to provide state-of-the-art security systems to address those concerns. CCTV security systems are amongst the most popular products in our inventory. Available in a range of styles and sizes, these systems are ideal for homes and businesses, alike.
There are plenty of reasons for business operators to consider installing a better (or more comprehensive) CCTV system on their premises. In this post, we’re going to look at six of the most compelling:
1. CCTV systems are a powerful deterrent to crime.
When a would-be intruder sees a security camera looming in the area, they’re going to have to think twice about whether or not they want to proceed with the crime. After all, if there’s any chance that their likeness is going to be caught on camera, then getting away with it is going to be much more difficult. The payoff is unlikely to be worth it.
2. Cameras also make employees think twice about stealing from the company.
Theft at the hands of employees may not be a major threat to businesses (this study claims employees account for 5 per cent of retail theft by value). But it’s still something that employers need to protect themselves against. When employees are aware that their actions are being recorded, they’re more likely to be on their best behaviour.
3. CCTV cameras can be used to solve crimes in the community.
These days, CCTV security systems are more ubiquitous than ever, which means that law enforcement are able to use them to solve cases. In that sense, CCTV installation can accomplish more than merely protecting your business and property. It could also be used to get to the bottom of criminal cases that take place in your community.
4. Keep an eye on operations.
Whether you want to be able to survey the production floor from time to time or you’re concerned that a particular task isn’t being taken care of, the fact that you have set up a CCTV network means that you can easily keep an eye on any and all aspects of your operations.
5. Clients, customers and employees feel more comfortable.
If crime or vandalism have already surfaced near the place where you operate your business, then your clients, customers and employees may actually feel ill at ease when they are in the area. Functioning CCTV cameras can help encourage everyone to rest a little easier.
6. Monitor high-risk or accident-prone zones.
If a particular area on business grounds is at an increased risk of fire or accidents, then cameras can help your security staff keep a closer watch on that area. This, in turn, means that you’ll able to respond more quickly to accidents that do occur – shortening response times and reducing the inherent risks.
