A remote security camera system can be a valuable part of your security plan. Thoughtful placement can also make you a valuable part of the community. In the right place, video cameras might be useful in helping prevent or solve crime that’s not even associated with your business. Consider a robbery that occurs outside your storefront or a hit-and-run accident. Your cameras can identify essential elements in each of those situations that can help bring justice or resolve disagreements.
Protect Your Neighborhood
Perimeter security can protect your exterior, including parking areas and entranceways. It can prevent criminals from accessing your building as well as the surrounding businesses or residences. It provides a second set of eyes on local properties. If enough companies in the area have perimeter security, it can prevent blind spots anywhere along the street.
Help Law Enforcement
If your neighbor is robbed and the criminal passes by your building and is captured by the video cameras, you might be able to identify the perpetrator if they didn’t have cameras of their own. On the other hand, if everybody in the neighborhood has perimeter security, there will be no place to hide, and the criminal can be followed all the way down the street. This can give law enforcement more to work with and help them track down the perpetrator.
Visible perimeter security can help reduce crime in your area. Being located in a low-crime area can increase trust in your brand and raise its status. It can increase your property value and give people confidence in patronizing your business. A sense of security can add value to your business and the whole area.
Perimeter security cameras can also protect people. The cameras could “witness” an assault or robbery. If the cameras are remotely monitored, law enforcement can be notified. They can also provide evidence that can help prosecute the crime when the time comes.
Reduce Property Crime
Visible perimeter cameras can discourage vandals or trespassers. They’ll move on to a location where their activities will not be captured or perhaps give up on their mischief entirely – at least for the day. You can also resolve disputes, such as fender-benders or other disagreements.
