Keeping an Eye on Your Bottom Line: The Power of Video Surveillance in Business

Video surveillance solutions can provide a sense of security, promote workplace safety, and increase peace of mind for customers, employees, and property owners within a business environment. Even in a more remote work world, physical security is as crucial and prominent as ever.

2024 Surveillance Statistics

Let us put that into perspective with some stats gathered by Security Magazine and the Security and Surveillance Market 2024 Research Report.

  • The average person is recorded over 300 times on video surveillance systems every day – this can range from home surveillance, retail surveillance, traffic cams, etc.
  • The worldwide surveillance camera count is around one billion
  • By 2025, the global security cameras industry is expected to reach $9.7 billion
  • 54% of SMBs have installed or updated their security cameras within the past year
  • Surveillance cameras have been used over 110,000 times in criminal investigations
  • On average, SMBs lose close to $50K in a year due to scenarios like vandalism and theft especially in high crime areas

The Proven Advantages

Camera surveillance in a business environment offers multiple advantages, providing a sense of security for both employees and customers. By having an extra set of eyes on the premises, these systems can significantly enhance safety and efficiency.

Prevention and Protection
One of the main reasons people choose surveillance cameras is the prevention of situations ranging from vandalism, break-ins, and theft which can include retail and non-retail theft such as company property theft and intellectual property theft.

Cameras themselves are a deterrent and when they are seen, they discourage criminal activity to some degree. They also allow a veil of protection around both the physical property and its employees. While not all the sight of a camera might not always deter crime, cameras allow any instances of suspicious activity, vandalism, theft, abuse, or harassment to be captured. These videos can be used as evidence against the antagonist.

Increase in Productivity
If you decide to use cameras inside your business, you will likely see an increase in productivity. It has been found that employees are likely to remain productive and on task when being recorded. Now this surveillance is not just for watching employees to ensure they are staying on task but also can help determine job performance areas that need improvement, ensuring safety rules are being followed and maintenance employees can even use it to detect equipment that is not operating correctly and needs to be repaired.

Real-Time Monitoring
Another huge benefit of surveillance cameras is live footage that is available at any time and can be accessed from anywhere including a computer, cellphone, or tablet. This means 24/7 monitoring whether you are at the location or not, allowing greater peace of mind that your business is safe and running efficiently.

Cameras also allow accountability for employees and customers when it comes to any claims or complaints, allowing leaders to check and verify what happened immediately so that facts are not misinterpreted, and sufficient proof is provided.

Cost Reduction
Compared to traditional sources, camera surveillance is a cost-effective means of security. Commonly, security is actual employees which means dealing with additional payroll for round-the-clock security officers. With cameras becoming common and more reliable, organizations can have that security at a fraction of the security-related costs you would be spending otherwise.
