CCTV Specialist: Business Benefits of CCTV

One of the many services we offer at Peninsula Locksmiths & Security is putting together CCTV packages for both companies and homeowners. We are CCTV specialists with a wealth of experience when it comes to CCTV installation. This blog entry will focus on the advantages that CCTV – i.e. closed-circuit television – can offer your firm. (Some of the points will also apply in the case of private residences with CCTV, though.)

Benefit #1: Prevent/Record Theft

Just the presence of a camera or sign(s) warning that a CCTV package is in use may be enough to deter a would-be thief. In cases where a crime is committed, the footage recorded by the system can be invaluable to police.

Benefit #2: Prevent/Record Vandalism

As with the previous point, you’ll likely find graffiti and other senseless damage on/around the workplace go down following a CCTV installation. No-one wants to stand and spray-paint a wall knowing they are being filmed the whole time!

Benefit #3: Prevent/Record Trespassing

There are a number of reasons to be wary of trespassers – industrial espionage, criminals casing the place, stickybeaks who might injure themselves on company property… Your friendly local CCTV specialist can assist you in deterring these unwanted intruders or at least capturing evidence of them for the authorities.

Benefit #4: Prevent/Record Improper Conduct

While the first three points relate to outsiders, a further benefit to businesses is that CCTV deters and, as we keep saying, potentially records improper conduct by insiders. This could take the form of workplace discrimination/harassment/bullying, unsafe behaviour, neglected duties, etc.

Benefit #5: Allow Everyday Monitoring

While we attempt to head off various worst-case scenarios, let’s not forget the extreme practicality of a CCTV package. A CCTV monitor can show you when to open the door for a courier, whether a truck is in the loading bay yet, and countless other useful things.

Benefit #6: Can Lower Insurance Premiums

There’s a distinct possibility that the amount you are currently paying for insurance could be lowered after a CCTV installation, given the increased level of security it represents. Doing work in certain areas, e.g. with armed forces or defence contractors, may even require you to have this added surveillance.

Benefit #7: Brings Peace of Mind

Knowing that they have a closed-circuit television system which has been designed and implemented by a CCTV specialist and is constantly recording (if not also being monitored by security staff) allows firm owners to rest easier. There will still occasionally be unfortunate situations, but at least you will be able to determine where and when they occurred, and who was at fault.
