CCTV-Reasons

We know that security is paramount for companies and individuals. And, while we all face an unprecedented number of security concerns these days, there has never been a better time to improve the security of your business.

Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) systems can play a key role in safeguarding your business against theft, fraud, and a host of other threats with a typical 4 Camera solution starting from only £599.

Increased Deterrent

It’s always preferable to deter crime in the first place rather than deal with the aftermath. CCTV systems are a fantastic deterrent to potential thieves and the very presence of CCTV cameras on your premises sends out a powerful message to would-be crooks and, if they still choose to commit a crime anyway, there’s obviously an increased risk they will be caught and identified on camera.

Safer Workplace

CCTV doesn’t just protect your business against crime. It also gives you greater control over day to day business operations. The presence of CCTV cameras can help to ensure your team adheres to important health and safety policies – and any footage you gather can be invaluable in staff training. Businesses also have a duty of care to ensure their staff are safe and protected. CCTV can help with this by preventing discrimination, bullying, assaults and also safeguard staff from false claims of misconduct which is why it is ideal for schools and hospitals.

Remote Monitoring

CCTV lets you view and control all of your cameras from anywhere using mobile phones, tablets or laptops\PCs etc. providing you have sufficient internet bandwidth. This is one of the main reasons for implementing CCTV at home given the concerns people have about burglary when they go on holiday – just being able to check your cameras is a great reassurance.

Receive Alerts

With our CCTV systems you can be alerted to activity by email or texts so that you can quickly check what is going on and if necessary inform the police before or during a crime has been committed.

Increased Professionalism

CCTV can help encourage a high level of professionalism among your team. It can also double up as a staff training tool for real-life examples of best practices and habits to avoid.

Reduce Insurance Premiums

More and more insurance companies are incentivising businesses to install CCTV solutions through lower premiums.
