Safeguard your business against theft
One of the biggest factors that significantly impacts businesses is theft from their stock or cash-handling. As much as you may trust your staff to do the right thing, many businesses suffer from inventory shrinkage due to internal theft.
CCTV allows you to monitor and identify any staff or members of the public that attempt to steal from your business. By placing CCTV cameras around your property and advising staff about their whereabouts, it can serve as a deterrent against any potential theft and gives you video evidence if your business become a victim of this crime.
Safeguard your employees against threats
The staff in your business can become vulnerable to threats imposed on them from the public. Situations may arise in which customers threaten the safety of your staff – CCTV cameras document their actions, providing video evidence that can be used in court.
The presence of cameras in your business should also serve as a deterrent against staff members engaging in any threatening or unacceptable behaviour towards each other or your customers.

Vandals present a serious threat to your business. Damage to your property can result in unforeseen costs. CCTV surveillance can deter would-be vandals from damaging your premises by instilling a fear of being identified. The cost of installing CCTV systems that will thwart the activities of vandals can save your business thousands of dollars in potential repair costs.
