Everyone knows that protecting inventory and preventing theft are among the most important benefits of surveillance cameras. Just the sight of a surveillance camera is enough to make the average shoplifter nervous because the evidence it collects can lead to conviction on charges of theft. Despite that, some business owners may be reluctant to install surveillance cameras because they feel the risk of someone stealing their products is low. Learning about the other benefits of security cameras may make them reconsider. Here are some advantages of security cameras that go beyond scaring away those with sticky fingers:
- Lowering insurance premiums — No matter what industry you’re in, you may be able to enjoy reduced insurance premiums by installing a security camera system in your facility. Your insurer is likely to be impressed by the effort you’ve put into protecting your property and staff and should be relieved to know there’s a smaller chance it will have to pay out on a claim.
- Protection from liability — One of the key benefits of surveillance systems in a warehouse or distribution center is keeping employees honest. That extends to more than preventing in-house shrinkage, however. Obtaining video evidence also can be extremely helpful in situations such as workers’ compensation claims. If there’s proof the employee was negligent or reckless on the job, you may be able to use it to your advantage. Retailers, restaurants and other public-facing businesses also could protect themselves from false claims filed by customers.
- Improving efficiency — You and your managers can’t be everywhere at once, but with a quality security solution in your building you may not need to be. You’ll have a bird’s eye view of your production floor, showroom, retail space, dining room or kitchen, so you’ll be able to see what your employees are doing at all times. If there’s any slacking or misbehavior going on, you’ll discover it. You also might be able to spot any inefficiencies in your processes that, once addressed, could boost your ability to serve customers.
- Building confidence — Cameras may make criminals anxious, but they also can give your regular customers greater confidence. If they feel safe while they’re in your business, people will be more likely to spend money and return again and again. Having a highly visible security system can put them at ease and let them know you’re genuinely concerned about their safety.
