As criminals grow craftier, security technology must also grow stronger. This has led to an assortment of security cameras with new, cutting-edge features, some of which connect with a surveillance app to send you alerts if any suspicious activity is caught on camera. How can this help you?
Let’s say a fire ignites at your place of business while it was closed up and no one was around. Once something unusual is detected by the cameras, an alert can be sent to your email. This alert prompts you to pull up a live feed of the footage to check on the source of the security breach, and you see the fire blazing on screen. You are then able to call the fire department and the fire is put out before it could destroy the building and interrupt daily business operations.
Another example of how security cameras can save your business is that they record things—from fires to theft—which can help when it comes time to file an insurance claim. The more proof you can show your insurance provider while making a claim, the better your chances of getting the appropriate payout in a timely manner to cover the damages/losses.
While it takes some upfront capital to install these camera systems at your workplace, the cost may be well worthwhile if you can avert the worst of weather damage or catch a thief and restore your inventory. Cameras can also help you identify potential problem areas or even fraudulent employees.
Every business should have a plan for risk management, and security cameras are a solid choice for reducing risks. However, while they can lessen the impact of an unfavorable incident, cameras can’t always prevent disaster. Unfortunately, nothing can. Which is why it’s also important to protect your organization with a comprehensive business insurance policy. The right coverage helps fund the expenses associated with a disaster, so you won’t have to fork over your business’ savings just to stay afloat.
