Cutting Corners With Security Equipment to Try and Save Money

 

 a.) Thinking video surveillance is too expensive.  Ponder the cost of a lawsuit by a visitor or employee who says he slipped, then sues you.  How about employees systematically stealing from your company over the long term?  Or when a thief actually breaks in and steals expensive equipment or invaluable items such as files.  All of a sudden, the cost of an effective CCTV system doesn't see so expensive.

  • Not only can you use recorded footage as evidence to prove your case, but the cameras and systems themselves can act to PREVENT many potentially debilitating events.

Having your perimeter sufficiently covered with video is a must

b.) Buying analog cameras to save money.  Analog cameras are satisfactory in many cases and have saved companies time and money with countless security incidents.  But with today’s advancements in technology, there are more and more affordable cameras on the market that provide much more clarity and other features, such as covering more viewing area--these are megapixel and IP cameras.

  • With analog cameras, sometimes the thief’s or employee's face or other identifiable features are not distinguishable enough to prove it’s a certain individual.  Megapixel cameras for instance, allow you to zoom in closely on a certain area, and not see that “grainy” quality footage.  The image remains clear, even when you need to zoom in on the person’s face, for example.  *This is vital for evidence in court or for your loss prevention department.

c.) Doing just enough to satisfy insurance requirements.  If you’re going to install a system specifically for insurance reasons, please, take the opportunity to do it right the first time.  Consult with your security company: to ensure you’ll be covered for intrusion through doors, windows and other entrances; to have essential fields of view set to record on motion if someone enters those fields; to have proper fire protection and to maintain strict access control which provides an “audit trail”.
