Protect Company Assets

  • Video cameras discourage criminal activity from happening in the first place. If a potential thieves see a camera, they will be less likely to continue their plans.

  • Unfortunately, break ins can happen no matter what precautions you take. Having video footage can help cops with their investigation and allow you to get a picture of the suspects.

  • Surveillance can help protect against loss prevention during office hours. With customers, vendors and other contacts in and out of your business all day, it can be difficult to monitor each and every person who enters and exits.

Protect Employees

  • Employee protection is one of your biggest responsibilities. Cameras can allow company security to see that employees safely reach their cars

  • If there is a claim of employee abuse or harassment, viewing surveillance to review the incident can help employers take the necessary steps to fix the issue.

Monitor Employees

  • As a business owner or manager, you put your utmost trust in your employees. However, sometimes it is necessary to review actions if there are claims someone may be being dishonest.

  • Cameras can help track when your workers are in and out of the office. If someone forgets to clock in or out, just check the footage.

  • Video cameras are a good way to monitor productivity. If you have a question as to whether an employee is keeping up with his or her work, it is easy to check footage for a particular day or week.

Video surveillance tactics may not be for every business. Weigh the pros and cons, and contact your state’s labor department for laws concerning video surveillance.
