Security Cameras for Business

May 17, 2023

Surveillance cameras are becoming increasingly popular across the world today. Businesses such as gas stations, restaurants, retail, offices, storage rentals, convenience stores, etc., and even parks and traffic intersections are installing security cameras at a high rate.

While an increasing number of businesses opt to implement robust security systems, theft and vandalism are on the rise. Worldwide, more than 25 million commercial security cameras are installed. It is suspected that over 67 percent of security incidents could have been prevented if video surveillance had been present. 

Installing cameras to help protect your business is an easy way to save time and money and can reassure employees and owners. Below are some benefits of installing security cameras on your company’s premises: 

  • Deter potential trespassers, thieves, and vandals.
  • Ensure client, guest, customer, and employee safety.
  • Protect business assets.
  • Lower legal liability.
  • Improve workforce productivity.
  • Ease stress.
  • Certify compliance.
  • Avoid employee theft.
  • Reduce security costs.
  • Oversee client purchases.

When installing security cameras on your property, it is important to follow these guidelines: 

  • Confirm the lighting is adequate.
  • Ensure there are no blind spots.
  • Use only outdoor/indoor cameras where appropriate.
  • Cover all hidden entrances.
  • Backup data on a hard drive or cloud storage.
  • Conceal all wiring (avoid using WiFi.)
