Whether you are looking to make your home safer, your business safer, or both, video surveillance and security cameras a great idea to improve your overall security.
Home and Business Alarm and Camera Systems are two of the most popular measures home and business owners make to feel more safe and secure. Here are some primary reasons why.
Security cameras increase overall safety
Security cameras positioned throughout the interior and exterior of a business or home help prevent crimes and break-ins by a massive margin.
This may be especially important for businesses as they are four times more likely to be burglarized than a home.
That being said, when it comes to home break-ins, the likelihood that your home is broken into drops by a whopping 300 percent if you have cameras.
Security cameras improves perception of concern for customer safety
No matter what industry you are in, it is always good to make your customers and clients know that they are cared for.
The presence of a good security system including security cameras show your customers that you care about their safety and security and cam improve the overall way that they see your business.
It improves 24/7 peace of mind for your employees
Happy and comfortable employees are productive employees and a sense of safety can certainly encourage them to work more efficiently and productively.
On top of that, the fact that cameras are on the interior of your business ensure that your employees will not get lazy on the job. Even if they aren’t recording 24/7, employees with potentially lazy intent will feel like there is always a superior watching over them, encouraging them to work hard and stay on task.
Can help avoid legal claims and fraud
For a business owner, one of your worst fears is being sued. Whether it is an accident, injury, harassment or other similar legal issue, having a security camera may offer video evidence that can prove what actually took place.
Protects packages and shipments
Whether you are having items shipped to your home or business, you want to be sure that those shipped items will not be lifted off your front porch or entryway.
Over 10 million U.S. homeowners experience package theft each year, and having a camera pointed directly at the place where your packages are left can help make sure that you will not suffer a similar fate.
Beyond that, even if you do have your packages stolen, you can reference your video recordings to try to catch the neighborhood thief or to prove to the sender that your item was stolen so that you can either receive a new shipment or refund for your purchase.
Video surveillance can actually increase business profits
This might be something of a shock to you but one study proved that businesses with camera surveillance saw a 22 percent drop in theft and a sever percent increase in profits. That amount is certainly enough to rationalize the purchase and installation of a state of the art video security system.
