How Can Your Business Benefit from Video Surveillance Systems?

From large corporations to small businesses, the importance of installing security cameras remains the same. You’ve invested your time, energy, and passion into your company. Now it’s time to invest in your peace of mind. 

Stop Theft and Other Crimes

Visible security cameras can cause criminals to think twice before stealing or damaging property. Even if a theft still occurs, CCTV can provide valuable evidence to law enforcement, increasing the likelihood that a suspect will be apprehended.

Increase Workplace Safety, Improve Business Operations

Security cameras can allow you to both improve workplace safety and reveal problems with staff. Security involves more than just protecting against theft—sexual harassment, violence, and injuries due to carelessness can be deterred with the use of a security camera system.
Some key areas to consider filming, once you do install security cameras, include any initial access points where card access control systems and/or photo ID cards are utilized, as well as parking gates, parking garages, and turnstiles.

Lower the Cost of Business Security with Wireless Surveillance Cameras

The cost of adding a CCTV security camera system with recording capabilities in your Milwaukee, WI, business - even one with wireless capabilities - is much lower than employing a professional security guard. Using security cameras on your commercial property may also help you earn insurance discounts. Not to mention, deterring crime can save you from paying for stolen or damaged property. 

Is it legal to use CCTV?

There are of course limitations to where you can record. But in general, so long as you are not recording in areas like bathrooms, shower areas, hotel rooms, bedrooms, locker rooms, or changing rooms, you are free to use surveillance cameras. It is also illegal in the US to record surveillance video or audio specifically for the purpose of malicious intent or blackmail. However, it is common and encouraged practice to survey your business.

Types of Video Surveillance Recording

  • Before we list characteristics of each type of security system, let’s break down & explain some of the differences & pros/cons of each type of camera. For example, DVR systems use analogue cameras, whereas NVRs use IP (or Internet Protocol) cameras. Also, DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder, whereas NVR stands for Network Video Recorder. 
  • The resolution feature in a DVR system is “frames per second (FPS). This refers to the number of still images per second of footage, which is important for identifying faces, lighting details, and changes to high-risk areas. The high-definition resolution, along with the number of frames per second, is in large part why DVR systems are often the security system of choice for many high security facilities.
  • When choosing a DVR system, you should consider the FPs speed, the size of area you need to cover, your needs for video resolution and clarity, and whether you will need to add more CCTVs (which may affect your system’s FPS potential). You’ll also want to consider the field of view of each lens, which could affect the clarity of close up images (as opposed to wide panning views). Lastly, consider whether audio is important, and factor in weather conditions too.
