What are the advantages of effective CCTV for commercial properties? 

There are a number of advantages and benefits to installing CCTV around your commercial property. These include:

  • Recording criminals– criminal activity can be incredibly costly to your business. Recorded evidence of any illegal activity can help you secure insurance payouts as well as press charges against the culprits.
  • Deterring criminal activity– visible cameras can deter criminals from targeting your business helping to protect both your property and your staff and customers.
  • Noticing suspicious behaviour- CCTV can help you identify and spot any suspicious behaviour which can help improve security procedures and practices.

How can you make your security system more effective? 

While installing professional and high quality level CCTV around the perimeter of your commercial property can help to keep your business safe, there are a number of other options that you can add to enhance your CCTV performance and your overall security system. These include:

  • Security lighting – illuminating any unusual activity with security lighting can help provide a better image for your CCTV when identifying any illegal activity. In addition, motion activated security lighting can even be connected to your CCTV so that once the motion lighting is triggered, the CCTV instantly begins to record. That can help you catch any criminal activity on camera with ease.
  • Alarm systems- alarm systems connected to your CCTV can be activated to deter any potential criminals in the area. These can be activated by proximity and movement or simply by attempted entry to your property.
