By Jon Benowitz on February 16, 2014 in Video Surveillance

There are many things that need to be taken into account when you are considering setting up video surveillance for your home or business.  Of course, there are all of the obvious benefits that come with video surveillance, including the fact that they allow you to keep an eye on customers and identify individuals that may have caused issues.  There are many little-known benefits to video surveillance security cameras that you may not have taken the consideration when you are looking to make the purchase.  Did you know that video surveillance security cameras can help solve employee disputes, catch employee theft, understand productivity, and identify suspicious customers?  Some of the more creative reasons that you should consider installing video surveillance equipment in your place of business include;

Solve Employee Disputes

By having recorded video of confrontations or arguments that may take place, you can review the video to get an idea of which side of the story appears to be the closest to the overall truth.  Solving employee disputes is a definite must for any employer, and there are many things that need to be taken into consideration in order to ensure that you get the best possible benefits overall.

Catch Employee Theft

Did you know that one of the largest forms of theft for any business is employee theft? Employee theft is a very big problem for many individuals and you need to make sure that you are in a position to keep employees from taking anything.  More often than not, individuals that work for a company are much more likely to steal than random customers.  This is not to say that customer theft is not an important issue, but employee theft is just as important.  Employees taking advantage of their employer is all too common of a problem and needs to be eliminated to the best of your ability.  Installing a security camera system is an excellent solution to help prevent theft.

Understanding Productivity

If your business has been having productivity problems, a video surveillance camera security system can help you to gain a better understanding of the problems going on. Understanding productivity through the use of video surveillance can help you in numerous ways.  Not only can you watch the recorded CCTV video to get an idea of how hard your employees are working, but you can gain a deeper understanding of why employees are turning their attention elsewhere. Perhaps the demands of a retail store are much more in depth than you had originally anticipated.  For these reasons, you need to make sure that you do your best to better understand productivity overall.  Video surveillance can help you to eliminate potential productivity issues, and gain a deeper understanding of the day-to-day issues that your employees face.

Identify Suspicious Customers

It is impossible to catch every individual that steals from a given location.  For this reason, you want to make sure that you are able to identify suspicious customers, as they are in the store. By having security personnel watch the video surveillance footage, they can watch for specific traits that many thieves exhibit when they are attempting to steal from a location.  Identifying suspicious customers will allow you to ensure that you can stop theft before it happens, and place a watchful eye on individuals that you believe may be looking to steal from your location.

Keep an Eye from Home

Another huge perk of video surveillance is the fact that you can keep a watchful eye on your business, from the comfort of your own home.  All of the  JSB Surveillance camera systems have built-in remote camera access so you can watch your business from your computer or Smart Phone.  There are a wide variety of different options available, and keeping an eye on your location from the comfort of your own home will allow you to ensure that you have a greater idea of what happens at your business on a day-to-day basis.  Video surveillance is a relatively minor inconvenience for employees.  But it will help you to gain a deeper understanding of valued employees, as well as the operations of your business as a whole when you are not present.  Keeping an eye on employees is one of the many reasons why business owners install video surveillance at their location.

There are many different reasons why a business may use video surveillance security camera systems.  Of course, the obvious is theft, however there are a variety of other issues that can be improved through the use of video surveillance equipment.
