Understanding the Benefits of Business CCTV Cameras

As a business owner or decision maker, you understand that the safety and security of your facility and your employees is your responsibility. Not only that, but preventing theft is essential. A local licensed electrician in Perth, such as Hilton Electrical, can help you achieve both of those goals with a CCTV system.

What Is CCTV?

CCTV stands for closed circuit television. Essentially, it is a series of interconnected security cameras that are wired into monitors within your business facility. The feed from those cameras does not leave your property – thus the “closed circuit” aspect of the name.

How Do CCTV Cameras Work?

Most of the time, CCTV cameras must be wired into your electrical system, and they must also be connected with the rest of the security system via coaxial cabling. However, modern systems can offer better ease of installation and operation. Many systems today are wireless, meaning that they do not need to be connected physically to the rest of the system and can transmit the footage they record over the air instead.

Your cameras will connect to a set of monitors, as mentioned. These allow you to watch live footage from your security cameras, but also view playback if you have a recording system connected. Most businesses benefit from recording footage daily and storing it, either on the premises in a physical storage format, or in the cloud. By storing footage for a specific period of time, you ensure that it is available for viewing if necessary.

What Are the Benefits of CCTV Cameras?

The benefits of these security cameras should be pretty apparent. They allow business owners and decision makers to monitor their premises for threats and problems ranging from shoplifters to employee theft to bad actors. They can also be vital in prosecuting criminals and can help uncover criminal behaviour that would otherwise go unnoticed. Even the presence of these cameras can make your business less likely to be targeted by thieves.
