Stay Safe with State-of-the-Art Office Cameras

Office that has implemented security cameras for safety

Cameras are now commonplace in offices and other workplaces. They’re used to deter crime, provide evidence, improve the sense of safety, and monitor employee activity. But with so many options available, how do you know which office camera is right for your business? Here’s what you need to know to choose the best camera for your office.

Benefits of Office Cameras

With office cameras offering business owners many benefits, there is no reason not to invest in them. Some of the advantages offered by office cameras include:

Crime Deterrence

One of the most obvious benefits of installing office cameras is that they act as a deterrent to outside criminals. Additionally, by knowing that they are being monitored by security cameras, employees are less likely to engage in criminal behavior or theft. Overall, this can lead to a decrease in crime rates in the workplace and improved safety for employees and customers alike.

Evidence Gathering

When a crime does occur, office cameras can be used to collect video evidence that can help with investigations and lead to the apprehension of perpetrators. Additionally, cameras can provide useful footage in other types of legal proceedings like insurance claims or workplace disputes.

Increased Safety

Office cameras can also play an important role in increasing the overall safety of a workplace. In addition to deterring crime, they can help identify dangerous or illegal activities happening in the workplace before they escalate into something worse. For example, if someone was attempting to harm others on company property, footage from security cameras could be used as evidence to prosecute them criminally.

Employee Monitoring and Training

Having office cameras installed in your workplace also allows you to monitor employee activity. This can be especially helpful if employees are engaging in activities that could pose a risk to the company, such as theft or abuse of company resources. Additionally, cameras can provide valuable footage for training new employees and helping them become better at their job.

Features to Look For In Office Cameras

When it comes to choosing office cameras, there are a few features you’ll want to look for. Here are some of the most important:

Tamper-Resistant

If you are looking for a durable and tamper-proof model with you should prioritize obtaining an office security camera with a vandal-proof rating of IK08 or higher, preferably IK10. Many tamper-resistant office cameras will have high IP and IK ratings, allowing them to withstand impacts and inclement weather.

Night Vision

Another popular feature of office security cameras is their night vision. For enhanced indoor and outdoor nighttime security, office security cameras should have built-in night vision. By employing an infrared (IR) illuminator that emits infrared light, these surveillance office cameras can adjust their recordings for low-light and nighttime conditions

Weatherproof

Additionally, many office security cameras are weather-resistant, which can be important for businesses that have outdoor areas like parking lots and open fields. Thus, if you’re looking for an outdoor, weatherproof camera, consider office security cameras with a waterproof IP67 or IP66 rating. Moreover, some models of office security cameras even have built-in heaters and temperature gauges to ensure proper operation in either extremely cold or extremely hot climates.
