Why You Should Install a CCTV System on Your Store Premises

cctvThe use of CCTVs has become common practice over the years. It’s standard to see these CCTV systems installed in public places in Dubai; outside of buildings, in train stations, and even in commercial establishments that are densely populated. Shopping malls, restaurants, convenience stores. You name it.

There are probably CCTVs everywhere that there are television shows and movies that are centered on how they are used as the eyes of supercomputers, aiding secret agents in completing their missions. Even more interesting, conspiracy theorists claim that through CCTVs and hidden cameras, Big Brother is watching your every move!

Fiction aside though, there are still store owners and business people who neglect to get one installed. Truth be told, there are several reasons to install a CCTV system on your store premises. Here are three of them:

Your own safety

More than anything else, you should prioritize the safety of your store. That is to say, the safety of your employees as well as your products. You can never predict when a robbery can happen. Having a CCTV system installed is an added layer of security that will help you identify the perpetrators and even get justice.

Helping the community

A crime or an accident may occur outside of your store, and by accessing the footage recorded by your CCTV system, the authorities can pinpoint key factors in the incident or simply pickup clues they might have missed during their initial investigation. By installing a camera outside of your store, you are able to help the community when needed, and sometimes even assist in upholding public peace.

Personal Entertainment

You can never tell when someone will do something stupid and get caught on camera. The funny thing is that it sure does happen a lot. In fact, there is an insane amount of such footage available on the net. Many of the videos are shared on social networking and video streaming sites, while a fair amount of them are even reported by the news. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to catch something on your cameras. On a particularly bad day and when you need a laugh, you can always return to the footage and get a good laugh.
