Since the introduction of CCTV in the 20th Century, its growth has been astronomical and can now be found in a high proportion of commercial premises. Even with the rapid growth of the ‘off the shelf’ residential camera market, there is still a great deal of advantages that can only be found with a bespoke installation.
Find our top 10 benefits of a bespoke CCTV system in the list below.
1. Crime prevention
Having a complete system covering your property gives a larger visible security impression which repels potential criminals. An imposing security presence, whether is it an intruder alarm, CCTV, or access control, has been shown to reduce criminal activity.
2. Securing visitors
The security of CCTV adds reassurance to all those who attend your property, a trusted system from a certified installer gives an additional peace of mind to your visitors, whether this is for shoppers in a shopping centre, employees in a workplace, or guests to your home.
3. Provides evidence
You may be called on to provide evidence or footage to support the prosecution of a crime, having a bespoke CCTV recording several angles at once, will give a clearer and unbiased version of the events that transpired during the incident in question.
4. Real- time monitoring
Although continuous monitoring will not be required for all, for those who must enlist continuous surveillance, it can be a vital tool in alleviating potential threats and reducing risks to them and their property.
5. Reduced insurance cost
Most insurance providers will ask whether there is CCTV and the quality of the system at the property, taking this into consideration when pricing your policy. By having an active system, installed, and maintained by an NSI Gold approved company could reduce your insurance costs.
6. Resolve Disputes
CCTV can help to determine the cause of a dispute before proceeding with a more formal investigation, this work particularly well within a work setting, where you may find employees, managers, or other personnel engaging in a disagreement.
7. Peace of mind
The presence of a camera can provide peace of mind, especially for those who live alone or within an remote property. The knowledge that the property, its contents, and the people within, have a continuous security presence installed by expert engineers provides peace of mind. Regular preventative maintenance checks ensure the system in always working to its full capacity.
8. Cost effective security
CCTV can be a cost-effective choice for incorporating security into your home or premises. If you opt for a stand-alone camera, with playback functionality you can obtain a security presence without a costly investment. Although all installations are carried out by expert engineers with market leading products, we endeavour to provide a cost-effective service for all.
9. Retrospective reference
CCTV systems can provide the facility to review retrospective dates, giving you what might be much needed insight into an recent event. Our CCTV systems will include playback features, which can allow the operator or engineer to recall a period of time remotely.
10. Compliments other security
Your property could already have an intruder alarm, access control system, or parameter gates. Introducing a bespoke CCTV system in addition to existing security measures will bolster your overall safety and create a more encompassing security presence.
