Reasons a Business Should Have Remote Surveillance Monitoring in Place

June 28th, 2019

As a business owner, you are well aware of the big time commitment having your own business entails. It is a lot of work with sometimes very minimal reward at the beginning, but you move forward knowing that soon enough, all that hard work and dedication will pay off.

Well, sometimes things come up, and you can't always be at your business. For these times, it is essential that you stay up to date with what is going on while you are away. To do this, you will need to have the advantage of remote surveillance monitoring for your business.

Reduce Employee Theft

With a remote surveillance system in place for your business, you can keep tabs on everything from anywhere on your mobile device as long as you have an internet connection. It has been proven that this type of system can drastically cut down on instances of employee theft. This is because the employees are aware of the cameras and know that when the business owner is away, they are still watching.

Improve Productivity

It ensures that employee productivity levels improve, and employee theft is reduced. There will be lesser instances of underproduction, no more extended breaks, and no inappropriate behavior. However, you may find that having the security system in place still just isn't enough.

Deter Crime

A remote surveillance monitoring system can also help prevent armed robberies, break-ins, and burglaries. Sometimes just having the cameras visible is enough to deter a criminal. They don't want to run the risk of being caught on CCTV footage committing a crime. 

Security System Features

Your business will be protected 24/7. If anything happens while you are away, you will receive a notification. For example, if any of your cameras detect motion while your business is closed, you will be immediately alerted. 

You will also receive an email or text alert notification as well along with an image of the motion and a short two-minute video clip of what was happening on the camera that detected the motion. It will give you a clear idea about what  is going on and what needs to be done. The security company and the authorities will also be notified.

Inform Your Employees

You need to make sure they are aware of any and all advanced features your surveillance system has as well − including the capability of remote access monitoring. Let them see how quick and easy it is for you to log in and view the cameras when you are away. This will also give them the opportunity to see how clear the images are and how easy it is to recognize each person.

Taking this kind of approach and letting everyone know about the surveillance system and the remote access feature will cut down not only on employee theft, but vendor theft, false liability claims, and more.

At the same time that it increases productivity levels, it will also improve the quality of your customer service and give you the peace of mind you need as the owner.
