How CCTV Can Help You

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is an asset at any home or business. At Security Surveillance Systems, we understand that you live a busy life and cannot always be there in person to make sure everything is running smoothly. CCTV lets you monitor your property remotely from your computer or another connected device, and it is one of the best ways to keep your building safe. Here are the top 3 benefits of installing a CCTV system in and around your building.

Prevent Crime

Have your cameras installed prominently so everyone who comes to your door knows that your building is protected.

Respond Immediately to Crime

If an intruder is detected, for example, your security system will notify your security company, who can call the police right away. This way, even if you are not personally watching your building all the time, it will still be under the watchful eye of someone 24 hours a day.

Monitor Your Employees

A study by fortune.com reported that employee theft in the United States adds up to about $18 billion per year. However, if your employees know that they are being monitored by CCTV, they will be much less likely to risk stealing from the company.

CCTV also gives you the opportunity to watch your employees as they work to make sure they are living up to your standards. You will be able to give more effective feedback to your team if you know exactly what happens when you’re not there. Cameras also cut down on the amount of time employees spend slacking off, boosting your company’s productivity.
