4 Reasons your Business needs Surveillance and Security Cameras

By Higher Information Group on November 28, 2022 | Technology Solutions

Your business security is important, and there are a few ways to make your buildings and facilities secure. Video surveillance and security systems are wonderful tools to ensure your company offices, storefronts, and buildings are protected. If you’re not currently using a security system, read on to dive into reasons and benefits of utilizing business security systems!

1. Proactive Crime Prevention

Preventing crimes in and around your business is simpler than you might think! According to a 2021 report by the FBI, 60.5% of the overall 8.9 million crimes reported in 2020 were crimes against property. These types of crimes including theft, burglary, vandalism, and arson cost businesses $17.2 billion each year. Studies show that the presence of cameras, floodlights, signage, and security systems deter these types of crimes.

According to research from UNC Charlotte, 60% of the burglars who were interviewed stated that the presence of an alarm would cause them to seek an alternative target altogether. Among the burglars who spent a significant amount of time planning their crimes, the presence of security systems was especially taken into consideration. It was also found that if burglars discovered there was an alarm during entry, many would stop the attempt to carry out a crime.

The presence of a security system may be all you need to prevent a crime! This is one of the simplest measures you can take to protect your business.

2. Protect Customers & Employees

Another aspect of security is ensuring the protection of your customers and employees. If a crime happens, you want to have evidence and helpful information to report to the police. Security cameras and surveillance systems provide customers and employees with a sense of security. This protection goes both ways to ensure that you can view your employees, and customers actions in and around your office and buildings. You never know when an incident will occur, and having footage of any instance will expedite the investigation and resolution necessary to get back to your daily operations.

3. Affordable to Adjust to Fit Your Business Needs

Security cameras and surveillance systems are some of the most affordable and scalable solutions you’ll ever purchase for your business. If you are growing, or downsizing, you can easily add or remove cameras, or aspects of your systems. Typically, installations are quick, simple, and affordable. With all the current options and features of modern security systems, there is one to fit any business.

4. Peace of Mind

Peace of mind is priceless! Knowing that you are able to monitor your business, reduce the chance of crime, and provide valuable information if a crime occurs puts your mind at ease and allows you to enjoy your time away from your business.
