What are the advantages of CCTV monitoring?
There are many benefits to choosing a monitored CCTV system to help protect your business or property, such as;
- Proactive CCTV security means that not only is it a deterrent for potential intruders but signage and the visual presence of the system lets them know that they are being watched and that if they enter the site then they will be seen, tracked and recorded
- Helps to spot and monitor suspicious activity or potential threats as they occur
- Reduces the cost of security when compared to things such as onsite security guards
- Higher chance of catching perpetrators by quickly notifying key holders, security personnel or police
- Audio intervention means that intruders can be addressed over speakers to deter them or alert them they are being watched
- Can be fully integrated to work alongside other security systems such as access control and security alarms.
Where can CCTV be installed?
CCTV can be installed on most commercial or domestic buildings as long as the relevant guidelines are followed. The placement of the CCTV cameras will depend on the type of property, it’s size, usage, layout and any vulnerable or high traffic areas that need covering. Key areas to install CCTV include;
- Entrances and exits including front, back and side doors
- Driveways or car parks
- Reception areas
- Server rooms
- Stock rooms
- Restricted access points
- Loading bays
- Off-street windows
- Back gardens
- Outside spaces such as seating, social or smoking areas
It is also important that the cameras are not too low that they can be easily reached and interfered with or too high that they result in poor quality images.
