A dependable CCTV system is a must for every business; Smillie can provide the ideal solution.
The security of your premises is no joke – closed circuit television (or CCTV) is a popular system used by many Melbourne businesses. It allows you to monitor all the comings and goings in your premises when you’re not able to physically keep an eye on it yourself.
CCTV installation will provide your business with a number of benefits, from records of any vandalism or robberies that occur to discounts on your insurance premiums. They can also deter opportunistic thieves who spot them and be used to monitor areas that are unsafe for people to enter (such as chemical plants).
Smillie Electrical Services can help you to select a CCTV system that best meets your needs, as well as install it. We can also handle maintenance and repairs should your system begin experiencing issues.
Ideas For Using CCTV For Your Business
CCTV is such powerful technology, that it would be a waste to use solely for security monitoring.
Other usage ideas include:
- Monitoring consumer behaviour. This can help determine friction points before purchase, popular areas, and more
- Improved management. By watching how your employees follow systems and processes, you can see where things break down and where improvement is necessary
- Peace of mind. Simply knowing that CCTV security in place can make your workers and customers feel safe and comfortable. They are worth installing for this reason alone.
Note: It is vital that you follow regulations such as having a sign alerting others that CCTV is in use. Contact us for more information.
How To Choose The Right CCTV
Any commercial buying decision is one that needs to be heavily considered. CCTVs are no exception. This is an investment that you’re making for your business and is one that will pay for itself many times over in the coming years.
But it can be difficult to choose the right CCTV. Especially when security isn’t your specialty.
So here are some considerations to help you make the right choice:
Location and placement
Additional features such as water, heat, and dust resistance can increase costs significantly (especially when you’re buying multiple CCTVs to cover a wide area). Take into consideration the location you intend for them to be placed and use this to determine what features are essential.
Purpose and goals
Depending on your goals, you’ll need to make a decision between several features. For example, an audio integrated machine will be necessary if you need to hear what is being said. A high definition camera will be required if you want to be able to zoom in and make identifications.
