Security is a top priority for business owners and it’s vital to make sure that your premises, staff and customers are as safe as can be. Having a CCTV system installed in your workplace is one of the best methods of doing so – here are just five of the ways in which CCTV can benefit your business.

Discourages criminals

CCTV is an excellent deterrent to would-be criminals. Your workplace could make a tempting target, but the presence of surveillance cameras is likely to make people think twice about breaking in, vandalising your property or committing other criminal acts on your premises.

Provides video evidence

Legal battles with stubborn lawyers and insurance firms can be frustrating and time-consuming, but the undeniable video evidence provided by CCTV can streamline the process and make your life much easier. This also applies to arguments in the workplace between staff or with customers, so disputes can be resolved quickly and easily without relying on hearsay.

Allows for remote monitoring

Leaving your workplace for the afternoon doesn’t have to mean leaving it vulnerable and unprotected. Some surveillance systems, such as our IP CCTV, allow for images to be monitored over the internet and therefore when you aren’t on the premises.

Business-wide coverage

Security personnel and other staff can only focus on one thing at a time, but a robust CCTV network eliminates potential blind spots and vulnerabilities and can provide cover for your entire business, including car parks and other areas.


Modern CCTV systems are highly capable but also affordable, so businesses of all sizes can take advantage of the security benefits. They require minimal maintenance and expenditure beyond the initial installation, so are an excellent investment.
