There is significant importance placed on cybersecurity for businesses, and rightfully so. Protecting your data networks is vital to the success of your business, and suffering a breach can signal the end of your business. Often overlooked, but equally important, are surveillance systems to monitor your physical place of business. Surveillance systems provide numerous benefits for your business, from increased employee safety to deterring theft.

There are many reasons your business should have a surveillance system in place. Here are the top five:

  1. Prevent Theft and Vandalism

    The most important reason to have a surveillance system is to deter theft and vandalism. The presence of cameras will keep most criminals away from your business. It will also prevent any graffiti from appearing on the exterior of your building. If a burglary does occur, you will be able to review your security footage to figure out who the criminal was and stop the person from committing more crimes in the neighborhood.

  2. Employee Productivity

    If your employees know that they are being monitored, they are more likely to stay on task. You'll want your employees to know that you trust them, but having the ability to track their movements when you are out of the office is a benefit, and will likely increase productivity in the workplace.

  3. Improve Customer Shopping Experience

    With a surveillance system in place, you can monitor your customer's movements throughout the store. This ability will allow you to strategically place products to better assist your customers. Customers will also feel safer in your business, knowing there is a security system in place that will deter negative behavior from occurring.

  4. Reduce Overall Security Costs

    Having a surveillance system installed will negate your need for hiring a security guard to monitor your property overnight. Security companies tend to be more expensive, and if your cameras are placed correctly, your business will have complete coverage. A security guard can't be everywhere at once, leaving opportunities for criminals.

  5. Protect Your Employees

    Your employees will feel safer knowing security cameras are installed. Security cameras can make workplace harassment easier to pinpoint, and you will no longer need to rely on "he said, she said" moments since the interaction will have been recorded. You'll be able to review the incident and accurately assess what happened. Additionally, employees who are walking to their car at night will be safer since criminals will be less likely to loiter around your business.
