What to look for when Installing a CCTV System at your business premises

Posted by Luke Lewis-Rippington on Dec 12, 2017 1:28:45 PM

Whether your business involves storing stock, handling cash, or using valuable equipment, maintaining a high level of security at your premises is vital. Steps you might need to take in order to achieve this can include installing a state of the art alarm system, fitting high security locks, or reinforcing doors and windows.

Increasingly, however, business owners, site managers and security personnel, alike are reporting that the most important tool at their disposal when protecting businesses from opportunistic thefts, break-ins and vandalism is a high quality, properly installed CCTV system.

There are many reasons behind this, not least that only CCTV technology has the ability to provide an advance warning that a crime could be about to take place at your premises, and record the evidence to ensure a successful prosecution. Criminals themselves are often aware of this, which means CCTV also acts as an effective deterrent, and because monitoring can often be handled by a single operator or off-site, running costs can represent remarkably good value for money.

However, ensuring that this potential to deliver affordable, optimised security at your business premises is fully realised requires careful attention to detail at every stage, from the selecting the right CCTV equipment, to installation, right through to deciding exactly how your system should operate once in use.

With that in mind, we've put together a brief guide detailing the major factors you need to take into consideration when installing CCTV for the first time at a new property, or renewing an existing security system.
