Of course, winding the clock back, this wasn’t always the case. Security personnel had to continually monitor a small screen or screens which usually displayed a grainy or blurry image. Scrolling through archived video footage to identify essential details was often difficult if not impossible. And it was far too easy to tamper with the security camera. In addition, old video surveillance technology generally failed to immediately notify stakeholders about the in-progress threat.
The bottom line is this: adding valuable security measures to your office, your facility, or any site that requires monitoring is now easier and incredibly effective. Whether your organization’s security needs are basic or robust and elaborate, it is vital to implement a video surveillance system.

Still on the fence when it comes to video surveillance for your business? There is much more to it than monitoring inventory theft. In fact, there are excellent benefits built into commercial video security.
6 Reasons You Need Today’s Video Surveillance System:
Improve Accountability Throughout Your Organization
While the mere awareness of at least one video camera present and monitoring activity doesn’t just help prevent theft; it can also help to ensure your employees’ accountability. No employee should feel he is under a microscope; however, the presence of a security system emphasizes your surveillance of both your inventory and your property.
Not only are you safeguarding your inventory and your property, but you are also essentially, saving valuable employee time and increasing your all-important productivity ratio.
Lower Insurance Premiums, Assure Legal Protection
Many insurance providers offer policies that benefit from the installation of a functional and approved video surveillance system. Though you need to check with your insurance company, many businesses enjoy lower premiums if they have a video security system in place that has been installed by a reputable security camera provider.
In addition, in today’s often-litigious society, a video surveillance system offers undeniable, time-stamped proof of what did or did not occur on your premises.
Prevent Theft Before It Occurs (And Catch It in the Act)
The most effective way to recover from a loss due to theft or other criminal activity is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. It’s no secret that video surveillance often deters the would-be thief from the crime scene, but the new, sophisticated surveillance systems allow you to clearly identify the suspect.
In short order, security personnel, law enforcement officials, and other stakeholders quickly identify the suspect(s) at hand. And powerful artificial intelligence systems (AI) can efficiently sort through footage based on specific objects, human profiles, or other important filters.
Remote Monitoring: Peace of Mind When You Are Close or Away
Whether you operate a small business or possess around-the-clock security staff dedicated to monitoring security video feeds, there is a solid feeling of reassurance that accompanies reliable security surveillance. Such reassurance is invaluable, and you don’t need a large security detail on your premises. With today’s most sophisticated video surveillance systems, it is easy for you to access surveillance through a specialized application on your phone.
A Safer Environment for Employees and Customers
Naturally, retail businesses have much to gain from video surveillance, but any busy operation with moving parts and employees will greatly benefit from video security surveillance – protecting valuable assets and inventory.
Effective Response Times
The sooner your company flags an unwanted person or criminal activity, the sooner law enforcement officials can appropriately respond to the situation. In fact, proactive incident alerting with advanced video surveillance systems even allows you to react in real-time. Of course, you can implement additional anti-theft measures such as bright lights, loud alarms, and on-site employee response, but your advanced video surveillance system is your first responder alert.
Most all businesses, whether small or large enterprises, acknowledge the importance of proactive security measures – so where to start?
