An “eye in the sky,” “big brother is watching,” “under surveillance.” Common phrases that refer to video surveillance systems, CCTV systems (Closed Circuit Television) or IP camera systems.
A well designed professionally installed camera system provides many benefits including protecting your assets as well as the hard working employees that are vital to the success of your operation. The technology of today’s digital equipment provides recorded crystal clear images with greater coverage areas and the ability to be accessed remotely, even by police in an extreme situation.
The presence of cameras on the exterior of your business deters crime. Criminals and vandals will avoid facilities with cameras, greatly reducing the risk of burglary and vandalism to your property. We will help you determine the best type of cameras for your application. Variables to consider; weather rating, low light/night vision, cold weather, field of view (range), motion activated, wireless. Placement of each camera is key to assuring desired areas are covered and provide the optimum view without obstruction. Properly marking the exterior area with signage and door and window decals is an important element of the overall security camera system.
Camera systems inside your place of business keep employees honest and encourage appropriate behavior. Monitoring your assets, sensitive material, and vulnerable areas of your facility will help prevent wrong doing. If something should happen, recorded video will prove the culprit. Combined with an access control system, cameras provide the visual evidence needed for proof.
If your business deals with the public, cameras help protect your employees while at the same time, give the customers a sense of security. Cameras also prevent false injury incidents/reports. The recorded images are proof of someone doing something wrong, or trying to “fake” an injury on your property.
