The Benefits of Installing Cameras in Your Commercial Building

Security Camera — Des Moines, IA — A TechSurveillance cameras are essential for both small and established businesses. Gone are the days when business owners used to hire people to sit around and watch what goes on in the premises. This approach was tiresome, costly, and ineffective.

With the advancement of technology came surveillance cameras that have helped many companies enhance safety and security. This article highlights a few benefits of security cameras and shows why your commercial building should have them.

Reduce Crime Rates

Camera surveillance is an effective strategy to deter criminal activities in your company. Cameras can significantly reduce crime rates in your company because they enable you to monitor employees and visitors within the premises and take action to prevent crime.

Besides, most people are reluctant to commit criminal acts in businesses that are under camera surveillance.

Improve Customer Satisfaction

Customer satisfaction plays a vital role in business growth. However, you may not be around all the time to watch and ensure your customers are satisfied with your products or services. Fortunately, you can use camera footage to assess if your clients are satisfied or not.

For example, if you notice clients spend a lot of time in the waiting bay, you can hire more employees at the front desk to cut down the waiting time. Therefore, CCTV cameras can help you put adequate measures in place to ensure customer satisfaction.

Create a Safe Work Place for Your Employees

Not only will cameras protect your assets, but also they will protect your employees. You can watch their movements in potentially dangerous work areas and also protect their valuable assets, such as cars in the parking lot. These security measures will make them feel safe when they are on your business premises.

Protect Sensitive Information

Every business has a location to store sensitive information, documents, or valuables. These locations include safes in banks, warehouses in stores, recipe lockers in restaurants, and so on.

If an intruder gains access to these locations, your business can be severely affected. Cameras in such places are essential and can help protect valuable information and treasures 24/7.

Provide Reliable Evidence

In the event of legal action after a theft or other crimes in your company, you will need evidence to prove your case. You can use the footage from your surveillance cameras as evidence. The footage will reveal the location and time of the criminal action, as well as the face of the suspect(s).

Also, you can use this footage to gather evidence during minor internal conflicts or misunderstandings. For example, if an employee comes forward with a harassment case, you can use the footage to review their claims and create a safe work environment for all.

Your customers may submit complaints or compliments about how your employees handled them. You will need the footage in such a scenario to find out what happened before you can offer a solution. Thus, cameras provide evidence that can help you settle disputes effectively and serve your clients better.

Keep Records

You can also use the cameras as a record-keeping tool that you can use to check the arrival and departure time of staff or visitors, the number of clients you receive daily, deliveries made, and more. This means that you can use the tapes whenever you need critical information.

Improve Work Performance

Since cameras will monitor most locations, including the offices, you can monitor your employees’ work behavior and their work environment. This can help you identify sources of distraction in the workplace and any behavior that can affect performance.

For example, your employees may be uncomfortable with their chairs, which you may be able to corroborate as you see how they sit or behave. Thus, you can use this information to purchase comfortable ergonomic furniture and other supplies to enhance productivity.

Cameras provide a reliable way to protect people and assets in your business premises. A Tech helps design, install, and maintain security systems, including security cameras. If you need our services, contact us now.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
