The Benefits of a CCTV System for Businesses

The benefits of installing a CCTV System in your business is an effective measure to increase the security of a business site and also to improve the efficiency and performance of a business’s operations.

Benefits of business CCTV:

  • Deterring theft
  • Deterring vandalism
  • Providing camera footage for evidence
  • Monitoring staff performance
  • Monitoring staff safety
  • Giving you visibility of the entire business premises
  • Helping you claim on insurance
  • Reducing insurance premiums
  • Providing peace of mind


CCTV – Deterring Theft

Installing a CCTV system will instantly act to deter criminals and theft. Intruders look for easy targets that will draw little attention to themselves. Seeing a CCTV system installed at your business site will encourage them to move on to a new target, as they will not want to be caught on camera.

Effective for both external and internal security, CCTV cameras can deter internal theft by leaving no area unmonitored.

Having the cameras visible inside your premises will also show the intruder that your business is serious about security.


CCTV – Deterring Vandalism 

Vandalism can also be deterred by the presence of a CCTV system. Criminals don’t want to be caught, so are likely to move on to a new target if they think they will be caught on camera committing a crime.

Make sure that your CCTV cameras are visual and cover the key, if not all, areas of your site for maximum protection against vandalism.


Provides Camera Footage for Evidence

Your business CCTV system can help to identify criminals and bring them to justice. Capturing your intruder or suspicious activity on camera is worth more than just sounding an alarm.

Whether you invest in a HD or IP security camera system, the footage gained can be used in evidence when prosecuting criminals.


Security systems can help crimes to be solved more easily. The evidence provided from your CCTV footage includes:

  • The time the incident took place
  • The location inside or outside the premise where the incident occurred
  • Audio and visual evidence such as faces, clothing worn, etc.


Police or relevant authorities will be able to use camera footage for evidence as well as help to identify wanted criminals


Monitoring Staff Performance

Keeping track of your employees’ performance is a great benefit of installing a CCTV system on your business premises. You will be able to monitor their timekeeping and attendance, a useful tool for when you are not on-site yourself. A CCTV system also allows you to see if your staff are behaving appropriately and professionally. You could even use the footage for customer training purposes, to show how, or how not to behave within the workplace.


Monitoring Staff Safety

Monitoring the safety of your staff is a great benefit of installing a CCTV system. Not only can you check they are following safety procedures, particularly when you may not be present, but the footage can also be used as evidence if there did happen to be an accident and a claim was made.


Visibility of Entire Business Premises

It is impossible to be everywhere at once. Use a CCTV system to be your extra pair of eyes. Once your CCTV system is set up to cover your entire business premises, you will be able to have an overview of your entire site from one device.

Feel more in control of what’s going on day-to-day and improve your business management. By seeing the happenings of your business premises via CCTV, you will most likely be able to identify areas for improvement, which will increase business efficiency and productivity.
