I See You!
Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched? That’s the premise behind many movies and television shows; but chances are, it happens more than you may think! More and more commercial and residential spaces are utilizing video surveillance as a security measure – and for good reason! There are many benefits to adding security cameras as part of your home or business security systems including acting as a theft deterrent, monitoring activities, and serving as evidence for any crimes committed.
If a potential thief sees you have video surveillance, they are far less likely to pick your house or place of business as a target. They know that the chances of them getting caught are increased, and they will move on to an option much “safer” for them. This also works internally. If your employees or home contractors are aware that you have cameras installed, chances are good they will resist the temptation to steal from you.
Beyond warding off potential threats, a camera surveillance system can serve multiple uses while you are away from your residence or business. If you are gone on vacation, you will be able to see what is going on in or around your house. While you are not physically at your business facility, you can still see what your employees are doing in all areas of your space (even from your tablet or mobile device). This helps not only alert you when theft or vandalism is occurring, but helps you keep an eye on pets, employees, and other liabilities and interests.
Should a crime be committed despite a surveillance system being in place, the good news is that you can use the images collected as evidence. Countless times, footage taken from security cameras has been exactly what was needed to identify and convict criminals, whether it was theft or another crime committed on personal or corporate property.
All these reasons and more are why you should consider investing in a video surveillance system to accompany your other security measures.
