IMPORTANCE OF CCTV IN YOUR BUSINESS
CCTV in full is CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION.
CCTV surveillance has proved to be beneficial in many ways for both home and in business premises. For business owners, they are a key asset for keeping an eye on your businesses while you are away.
In Kenya, surveillance cameras have become popular with the rising interest for workplace remote monitoring technology. But apart from monitoring, do the CCTV cameras have any more benefits to businesses?
Let us look at some of the benefits of installing CCTV in your business.
PREVENT CRIMES WITHIN YOUR BUSINESS PREMISES
With the rising cases of criminals targeting business premises, CCTV cameras are a key security tool that can help to eliminate such incidents. Cameras capture all activities happening within and around your business premises, which makes them a good deterrent for scaring off criminals who may want to invade your business. This can help you reduce the risk of theft and damages arising from such crimes.
CAPTURE AND PROVIDE EVIDENCE FOR INVESTIGATION
CCTV cameras are a perfect tool for gathering evidence. In case criminals target your business, cameras can capture their activities, which provide material to help in the investigation. We have seen cameras that have captured faces of criminals and helped the police in identifying and apprehending them. In addition, they can record activities within the workplace that can help to resolve business disputes that arise.
IMPROVE EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY AND PERFORMANCE
While some argue employee monitoring is unnecessary and uncomfortable, it is still paramount in assessing employee performance and behavior. Surveillance cameras within your premises can encourage employees to work to their fullest capabilities boosting their productivity and company output. They also encourage good behavior in the workplace, which is critical to the success of your business.
HELP IN MITIGATION OF SAFETY INCIDENTS
Safety incidents such as accidents in the workplace can happen anytime. However, with surveillance cameras, you can mitigate some of them and reduce the damage costs. They allow you to monitor the workplace, identity safety risks, and fix them before the worst happens. You can also detect incidents such as fire and respond in time to prevent a full-scale disaster that can cost your business millions.
If you have not installed CCTV surveillance cameras in your business premises, you lack an important risk mitigation tool that can help you keep your business safe and more productive. However, we can help you get a robust surveillance system to keep watch of your business while you are away.
