Benefits of Installing CCTV in Your Warehouse
What does CCTV mean and why would you want CCTV installed in your warehouse? CCTV stands for Closed-Circuit Television. CCTV involves installing video cameras which can then be viewed by security personal from another location. Everyone has been in a commercial building that uses CCTV. These video cameras, sometimes hidden under domes, are often found along the ceiling throughout the building. You will find them in stores, hotels, banks, office buildings and countless other locations.
Why do you need to install CCTV in your warehouse?
Not every business wants to justify the expense of having a personal security guard patrolling the warehouse. Even if you do decide to hire a security guard, they can only be in some of the places some of the time and not every place all of the time.
No business, big or small, is going to justify the expense of having an entire team of guards monitoring every isle of their warehouse. This makes complete monitoring of your warehouse impossible without CCTV.
With a CCTV surveillance system in place, a single security guard can sit inside a control room and monitor every inch of your warehouse in real time. You security guard can now see if property is being damaged, stolen, vandalized or if any other crimes are being committed.
CCTV video surveillance systems also serve as second purpose to prevent criminal activity. Even when the CCTV monitors are not being viewed they help prevent crime. The possibility of being watched or recorded on camera works as a deterrent. A person is less likely to commit a crime when they know they could be caught immediately or that hard evidence would reveal them in the act of a crime.
Best of all your CCTV system is working to protect your 24/7. This benefit not only protect your property but can also save you money on insurance premiums. Many insurance companies will allow you to negotiate a lower rate when you have constant monitoring through a CCTV system.
