Video Monitoring: 3 Reasons Why Your Business Needs It


As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. But the same can be said about video, right? With the rising popularity of business security and smart automation, video cameras are an excellent way to help strengthen your protection with crystal-clear footage of your entire property.

But you may be thinking about all the factors that go into installing a security system. What features are important? Where should you place your cameras? How many cameras do you need? All these questions are important to consider when taking full advantage of your security system.

Let’s put it into perspective. On average, burglaries happen around every 12 seconds in the United States. With over $3 billion in property and personal losses annually, burglaries have the potential to set business owners back considerably in repair damages and replacing stolen assets.

Furthermore, according to FBI data, 60% of business burglary attempts occur after working hours. Advanced security systems, on the other hand, never take a break. Video cameras paired with 24/7 monitoring can provide evidence for law enforcement to use to track criminals. To get a better idea about what security cameras and video monitoring can do for your business, let’s discuss three important reasons why your business will need these features.

1. Use video analytics to deter criminals.

Video analytics is a technology that was virtually unheard of a few years ago. This new technology uses your camera system to alert you of trespassers. The system will also avoid false alerts from falling leaves or wild animals. You can see what’s happening with intelligent, helpful alerts and important activities. Sophisticated business security systems today use video analytics and 24/7 monitoring to help deter criminals and support law enforcement by identifying criminals caught on camera.

2. Plenty of camera options to choose from.

Today’s technological advances provide a variety of products of which to choose. From video doorbells to crystal-clear night vision cameras, today’s products deliver excellent video quality with footage that adjusts to sunlight and other external light sources. And, the sleek, stylish design looks great, no matter where you mount it.

Additionally, multiple cameras help to develop a security system that gives you a full view of all areas of your property. You can keep an eye on the more vulnerable areas of your business while also assuring the safety of you, your employees, and your facility. Video surveillance also eliminates human errors from compromising your security measures, making it a compelling case to get them installed.

3. Keep high-risk areas monitored.

From working with hazardous chemicals and materials to safeguarding institutions like a bank, some businesses need proper security in place where movement and access are restricted. By installing video cameras, you can not only significantly increase the level of security but also closely observe what’s going on in your business in real-time. Plus, not only do video cameras help you monitor movement, access control for businesses can secure restricted areas like vaults or rooms with high-value merchandise.
