Benefits for Business Security Cameras and Video Surveillance

In order to protect your Southern California business, including the overall safety and security of all employees and visitors, video surveillance and security cameras are a must have these days.  We have the ability to monitor and record all things happening when we in and out of the office- so if you can name a reason not to, here are a few benefits of video surveillance and compelling reasons why.


  • Increase Overall Safety

    Our team will place your security cameras in and around your business to prevent crimes and break-ins. Businesses are 4x more likely to be burglarized as a home, as they typically have multiples of equipment to take.

    Put a Stop to Shoplifting & Theft

    Once the crook sees he is on camera, it can help deter the theft from occuring. Small businesses lose $25,000 to $33,000 every minute to shoplifters- not you.

    Bye Fraud

    A typical business can lose up to 5% of its revenue to fraud, so let’s see what is going on behind the scenes.

    Prevent Employee Theft

    80 percent of thefts happened in organizations with fewer than 100 employees, and over half had fewer than 25 employees so let’s get some cameras up to stop this.

    Protects Against Burglary

    60.5% of burglaries are forcible entry. Many people believe that burglaries are simply “crimes of opportunity. However, statistics show, the majority of burglaries are actually forcible entries (breaking windows, picking locks, kicking in doors, etc.). A good security system, including surveillance security cameras, can be a great deterrent for these types of crimes

    Improved Perception of Concern for Customer Safety

    The presence of a good security system including security cameras shows your customers that you care about their safety and security and can improve their overall perception of your business

    Improves Outside Security for Customers and Employees

    Video surveillance security cameras protect your employees both directly and indirectly. When installed in company parking lots and outside the physical building they can record the suspicious activity and allow company security officers or others to ensure employees reach their vehicles safely.

    Violence, Rioting and Vandalism – No More

    Business owners pay directly and indirectly for vandalism. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, a single incident of vandalism costs on average $3,370. Conspicuously placed cameras have been proven to reduce threats of violence and vandalism at businesses dramatically.

    Increases Sales

    Video cameras can also help you sell more products from your retail store. How? They make it easy to track customer traffic patterns throughout your business. This allows you to move inventory and adjust stocking so that you’re taking full advantage of “natural” high-traffic areas.

    24/7 Peace of Mind

    Continuous real-time monitoring – IP remote surveillance allows authorized employees to monitor critical business areas continuously, 24/7 in real-time from almost anywhere.

    We will post more reasons why, in the near future, but those are just a few- off the top of our head for now. Contact us to discuss your options and schedule an appointment for us to come on out and get started on your security.
