Most people only expect to use CCTV cameras to deter burglars and hopefully capture video evidence if a thief is brave enough to try to break in. What many people don’t know is that there are actually numerous other benefits of using a CCTV camera to record what goes on at your business.
Here are three additional reasons you may want to consider having a CCTV camera system installed in your business:
- Stop employee theft. No one wants to feel like they can’t trust their employees. Unfortunately, employee theft is a huge problem that costs businesses millions annually in the United States. Statistics show that the average business loses 5% of its annual revenue to employee fraud or occupational abuse each year. CCTV cameras are a great way to provide peace of mind and keep an eye on your cash registers or any tempting merchandise.
- Record natural events that cause property damage. Most business owners are concerned about theft, but many forget that Mother Nature can cause enough expensive damage to rival any thief. CCTV cameras are a great way to keep an eye on your property and catch things like storm damage, flooding, falling trees, and even earthquakes. You can then use the recorded footage as vital evidence for your insurance claim.
- Deter vandals and property destruction. Not all business loss comes from burglary. Vandalism is as much of a crime as theft is, and cleaning up after it is both time-consuming and expensive. CCTV cameras can help you capture valuable evidence that you can share with law enforcement to help catch vandals and prevent them from defacing or destroying your property and business.
