Video surveillance acts as a deterrent, lowering the chance your business will be targeted by a break in. But did you realise that installing CCTV cameras in your workplace offers other advantages too?
Closed circuit television cameras, also known as CCTV cameras, are a common feature in businesses all around Auckland. Well known as an effective visual deterrent, there are also plenty of other benefits of installing video surveillance, including:
1. Increased Workplace Productivity
You can’t be there to watch your employees all the time. As the saying goes, ‘When the cat is away, the mice will play,’ and your staff may lower their productivity levels when you’re not around. By installing business CCTV cameras, you can always see what they’ve been doing and follow up when required.
2. Reduce Employee Theft
Employee theft is often opportunistic. It may be when cashing up at the end of the day or perhaps when unloading stock. When people know their actions are being recorded on camera, they are less likely to commit a crime.
3. Lower Shoplifting Rates
Shoplifting costs NZ retailers an estimated 1.2 billion dollars each year. Having CCTV cameras installed in your retail store not only lowers the chances of theft, but also helps with the easy identification and prosecution of shoplifters.
4. Collect Evidence
With your CCTV footage automatically saved for 30 days, you have access to evidence which can be handed over to the police or investigative authorities if a crime occurs at your workplace.
5. Monitor Entry & Exit Points
Stop your deliveries mysteriously disappearing by recording their arrival at your business. You can also keep track of who comes in and goes out, increasing the security of your workplace.
6. Track Workplace Health & Safety Practices
Keep an eye on your staff and visitors to ensure they are following the required health and safety practices. If an accident does occur, it will be recorded by your CCTV cameras, allowing you to adapt your practices to prevent any reoccurrence.
7. Improved Customer Service
When it comes to customer service, the customer is always right. By installing CCTV cameras, you give both your staff and customers the comfort in knowing that their actions are recorded. This helps clear up any miscommunications, as well as identify opportunities for staff training in areas where customer service could be improved.
