The best definition that most people give to a security system is some machinery that will help protect facilities from intruders and unauthorized persons from entering it. But if this is only how people look at function of security systems there is an important aspect of security that is left out that is very valuable to a facility. With the introduction of video surveillance, there has been a broader meaning given to the word security. For today when we speak of security, we mean “allied security”. Security, therefore, does not only mean protecting your goods, but it is of being covered by it. Here is an explanation to this.
Being covered means that someone is keeping an eye around a particular area. When an area is being covered then there is 24 hour continuous observation of the place to see what is going on within its line of view.
A person being covered by the security system will allow him to monitor the place remotely. This means that even if you are physically absent in a place, your presence is still there monitoring remotely. When you are covered, it means that you workers who would likely be lenient when you are not there, would then do their duties well since they know that the video surveillance cameras records what is going on in the workplace. This video surveillance is a deterrent for shop lifting, stealing, and other crimes that can happen inside your facility.
Another value that a video surveillance covers you is when some incident occurs within your facility and someone within the vicinity will try to exploit that circumstance for personal or financial gain. With video surveillance cover, the evidence will be shown and will protect your business from false allegations.
Aside from being covered in enabling workers to be more productive, it also takes the ramp in monitoring consumer’s habits and trends to help your business create friendly policies and practices to enhance customer experience.
Before security systems were simply to protect our material possessions so we find devices that block passages, then it became alarm systems that drive offenders away, to electronic security systems that can be accessed remotely, and now being used by a lot of people, the inclusion of surveillance cameras maximizes the full potential of keeping places security, and not only the material possessions but also the intangible possession that are important to use.
As importantly as getting the whole shot of what is going on, all contraption that includes the surveillance camera can act as a comfort blanket. It gives you the freedom to get on with your life or business, confident that your properties, physical and virtual, are being watched.
It is great to make use of new security technology in order for you to have great peace of mind about the security of your property.
