Surveillance Cameras: Do I Need Them?

Do I Need Surveillance Cameras?

Surveillance cameras are an excellent resource for your home security and are an invaluable tool for commercial businesses.

Why would I use surveillance cameras in my home?

We find that many families feel safer with a surveillance camera installed, especially for families with kids arriving home from school or for homes that are often left empty for large amounts of time. These cameras can be used inside and outside of your home to cover all areas of your property. It is a great way to keep up with the activities on your property and secure your home.

In the past, surveillance cameras were usually so expensive most homes could not afford to install these cameras. Now, these cameras are made in affordable options with fantastic screen resolution. These connect with your smart phone or smart tablet, which is ideal for monitoring your home while on vacation or checking in on a babysitter or house keeper.

Commercial Application

Surveillance cameras are invaluable as far as commercial applications go. If you own a business you should have a camera system. They will pay for themselves.

While these cameras can be used to look at past incidents or the activities in the store or business, one of the great things about our system is it can be used to check on employee performance. It is just a fact that we all work harder when someone is watching. When employees know they are being watched, employee performance goes up, worth ethic is increased, and everyone works faster at getting the job done. It also helps to encourage your staff as you can monitor employees who are always going above and beyond and give them the recognition they deserve. This is a great way to get the most bang for your buck without having to hire additional employees.

Additionally, surveillance cameras can also help businesses with employee compensation. Having record of an unfortunate incident or an employee misuse’s of equipment can help save businesses money in terms of worker’s compensation.

Of course, surveillance cameras can be used for traditional security purposes such as break in’s or alerting the owner if an employee is in the business’s premises after hours.

Churches

Churches also find many great uses for surveillance cameras. Many churches use surveillance cameras for additional security, especially churches with large campuses. One of the great features about our surveillance cameras is that they can connect to a iPad so that a volunteer or security officer can view the church campus and activities without having to roam all rooms and hallways.
