GRANGE SECURITY SYSTEMS CCTV
Whether you’re running a business or simply trying to protect your own property, it’s important to invest in quality security which both deters criminals and helps to identify perpetrators after an event. When it comes to business or home security, Our systems offer some of the best protection out there. Setting up CCTV on your property means round the clock surveillance that criminals recognise and avoid. CCTV can help you to protect your assets, your family, and yourself.
What is CCTV?
CCTV is a video surveillance system which can be used by both business owners and homeowners to monitor property and premises in the hopes of both deterring and catching potential thieves, vandals, and trespassers. CCTV systems can be used to offer 24-hour surveillance, and modern CCTV systems are both high quality and cost-effective. CCTV stands for Closed Circuit Television, which refers to the fact that the television recorded on CCTV isn’t broadcast anywhere. CCTV systems consist effectively of a camera which captures the footage, a monitor which displays the footage, and a recorder which records the footage for future use.
Why have CCTV?
CCTV installation is of huge benefit across both the residential and the commercial sectors. CCTV can effectively deter criminals, maximise the chances of catching criminals when crimes do take place and improve onsite safety on business premises. For homeowners, properties with CCTV cameras set up are much less likely to be targeted by thieves, vandals, and trespassers. Many such crimes are opportunistic, and thieves will choose the easiest and lowest risk targets around – not the homes with CCTV cameras set up. In the event that a crime does occur, CCTV footage can be replayed to identify the perpetrator and provide evidence in court, making it that much more likely that offenders are both caught and punished. Not only does this mean safer streets, but it also means victims are much more likely to recover stolen goods and other assets.
Surveillance for Business
For businesses, the benefits of CCTV are tenfold. As in the case of homeowners, businesses can install CCTV strategically to deter criminals and prevent crimes from occurring in the first place. It also offers an efficient and economical way to monitor multiple areas from a single dashboard, because multiple CCTV streams can display from one monitor, meaning businesses needn’t hire huge numbers of security staff to patrol each location. CCTV can also be used by businesses to improve clarity when settling disputes between employer, employees and stakeholders, and it can also be used to boost employee and visitor safety. It’s important, when running a business, to make an effort to ensure that both staff and customers are safe while on site. CCTV can be checked not just in the case of criminal incidents, but also if sexual harassment claims are made or an employee is suspected of stealing from work. Grange Security can offer businesses an economical way to monitor business premises, and also gather evidence which can be used in court if necessary. No matter how trustworthy your security personnel are, CCTV footage of a crime taking place will always trump the word of any witness. There really is no replacement for the peace of mind that CCTV can give.
