Closed-circuit television camera systems (better known as CCTV camera systems) are universally used to transmit video surveillance camera signals trained in certain areas to monitoring systems in other areas. There are many advantages of having CCTV cameras in your home, business or in public places such as traffic intersections, major highways, train stations, and airports. Here are five advantages of CCTV cameras.
1. Protect Customers and Staff
When you own your business, do you know it or it is now your responsibility to look after your staff and your customers. With CCTV cameras you can help protect employees and clients/customers in various ways. The main way is to protect them physically. If they are attacked inside your building, you can submit an attack video to the authorities to help them find the attacker. CCTV can also stop crime from happening (see below) and can clear misunderstandings if money or merchandise is lost. 24/7 CCTV Camera System and Video Security Installation in Sydney offers a complete range of CCTV solutions for all types of needs.
2. Protect Your Company from Lawsuits
On the other hand, CCTV cameras can also help you protect your company from customers. We've all heard the story of customers deliberately putting glass or pests in their food to get free food, or deliberately spilling water and sneaking into it to sue the company. With a CCTV camera video surveillance system, you can monitor any fraud that occurs, and prevent you or your employees from being accused of false accusations or false lawsuits.
3. Monitor Employees
Just as you want to say that you truly trust your employees, there is always one bad apple that destroys the group. Unfortunately, it's usually necessary to monitor your employees and make sure they don't steal from your company – whether its office supplies, confidential company information, client lists, merchandise stores, free extra food or food, or cash from cashiers. With CCTV you can not only make sure your employees stay honest, but you can see your staff work most efficiently and give them the appropriate rewards.
4. Fully reduce or stop crime
As mentioned above, CCTV cameras can prevent crime by just being there to identify suspicious activity. Whether you use it in your home, restaurant, shop, or office building, by recording the crime that happened, you can help catch the culprit, and get the criminal out of the way, helping reduce crime not only in your area but in your city or county as well. In addition, most criminals hesitate to engage in illegal activities if they know they are being watched or filmed, so you can help stop the crime altogether.
5. Monitor Traffic and Public Areas
Last but not least, CCTV can be used to monitor traffic, identify traffic jams and record car accidents. CCTV is very useful in hit-and-run accidents where the driver must be identified. CCTV cameras are also beneficial for public safety because they keep a close eye on large crowded areas, such as airports, subways, train stations, etc., which are too large to be monitored by the authorities on foot.
