The Benefits of Having a CCTV System for Your Business

There are thought to be more than 5.2 million CCTV cameras in the UK! To put that into perspective, it is almost as many residents as there are in the whole of Manchester.

In 2022, there were 606,282 crimes against UK companies, with break-ins and trespassing high on the list of offences. CCTV systems are a great way of keeping business premises safe. Not only does it allow every inch of a corporate area to be monitored, but it also sends a clear message to criminals that you are not someone they want to target. Continue reading to find out the top benefits of installing professional CCTV systems.

Why Should You Install CCTV for Your Business?

  1. Higher chance of deterring criminal activity.
    CCTV legally needs to be advertised as being operational when installed. This means that it is clear when cameras are covering an area. Furthermore, seeing the cameras and associated alarm systems will signal to criminals that your business is protected. This doesn’t just stop break-ins but also vandalism to the areas surrounding a company making for better overall safety levels.
  2. Lower insurance premiums.
    If your business shows that it takes crime prevention seriously, financial benefits will also be received. Insurance companies will prefer it if CCTV is in place as it deters criminals and ensures that evidence is available should any issues arise. This is because your property is seen to be a lower risk. In this sense, a CCTV system can effectively pay for itself.
  3. Monitoring of staff activity .
    CCTV also allows businesses to keep closer tabs on their teams. It means that safety is enhanced so you can ensure that no one is at risk when on your premises. CCTV may also be used to track the time employees arrive or ensure they carry out their requested daily tasks. It is hard for companies to keep an eye on everybody, especially as companies start to grow. However, you can monitor an entire business from one location with CCTV.
  4. Ability to streamline security spending.
    CCTV systems also allow companies to spend more efficiently on security measures. Instead of having multiple people protecting a company, they can have a reduced team but enhance technology to do the job for them. This offers advantages to companies of all sizes, meaning that anyone can strengthen their security measures no matter the available budget.
