Safety and security are a big concern and priority for South African industries, businesses, residential homes and complexes. More than 450 000 private security guards monitor and patrol homes and businesses 24/7, all year round.

Office buildings and residential properties also benefit from additional security measures such as,

· Electric fencing
· Electric gates
· Alarm systems
· Panic buttons
· Closed circuit TV (CCTV) monitoring
· Security beams.

Security experts agree that CCTV monitoring is crucial for business as they can prevent up to 67% of burglaries.

Purpose of CCTV cameras

Developed to prevent crime and improve safety, CCTV cameras are installed in public and private spaces to,

· Monitor and detect illegal activity
· Deter vandalism
· Contribute to public safety and security
· Protect people and property
· Investigate crime
· Monitor staff safety
· Reduce business insurance premiums
· Use footage as evidence in court cases.

Here are six ways your business can benefit from world-class CCTV cameras and monitoring.

1. Prevents shoplifting and theft

Criminals often look for easy targets, that attract as little attention to themselves as possible. CCTV cameras and monitoring are an excellent deterrent. Criminals don’t want their crimes on camera.

2. Records evidence of criminal activity

When a crime is committed and captured on CCTV camera, police can use the footage as evidence, making it easier to solve and identify suspects.

3. Monitor staff performance

Employees are ambassadors for any business, and how they act while on duty directly impacts an organisation. With CCTV monitoring, it’s easy to see if employees act appropriately and professionally. Companies can also use footage of unprofessional office behaviour for induction programmes to show new employees how best to behave in the workspace.

4. Monitor employee safety

Workplace accidents happen. With CCTV monitoring, businesses can monitor and review footage to ensure all employees adhere to company safety procedures.

5. Extra eyes to monitor premises

Use CCTV cameras and monitoring to keep an eye on all areas of the premises at one time. Businesses can also look at this footage to see which areas need security improvement.

6. Reduce insurance premium

Insurance companies appreciate when businesses take extra measures to secure their premises. CCTV cameras and monitoring makes businesses a lower security risk, thus monthly insurance premiums can be reduced.
