How surveillance system can save your business time and money

Are you a business owner? If so, we understand the importance of maximizing “your bang for buck” or rather, maintaining low operating costs to maximize your return on investment. One way to save your business costs is by investing in a security surveillance system. Below we have detailed 5 ways which demonstrate why this approach can be one of the most powerful approaches to saving money.

Crime Deterrence

The mere presence of an outdoor camera can deter criminals. Similarly, the installation of seasonal “virtual guards”, can detect and deter an incident before it occurs. However, it is unlikely that a dummy camera will be as impactful as they can be so easily identified.

In the unfortunate event that your business is a victim of a burglary, cameras will record the incident and help in a prosecution. This will keep your assets safe and assist you in avoiding any liabilities.

Insurance Benefits

When an incident occurs, you are likely to make an insurance claim due to vandalism or theft. With footage from cameras it becomes far easier to document the event and validate your insurance claim.

Workplace Safety

With reliable security cameras overseeing entrances, exits and parking lots a safe and welcoming environment is created. Good employers make provision for their employees when it comes to safety and security and this is just as important as protecting assets. Peace of mind for your employee and an efficient workplace is likely to be the result.

Employee Theft

Theft from employees occurs more frequently than many business owners realize. The only definitive way to mitigate this is to catch them in the act via the use of a security camera. The mere knowledge that security surveillance is in place holds employees accountable and causes them to think twice.

Workflow Monitoring

Your employees may be working productively but it is also as important to ensure that the protocols you have instituted, safety or otherwise, are being adhered to. This also helps business owners monitor staff levels and productivity. Just two minutes of video will reveal much about a company’s operational model.
