In 2020, more than 10,450 crimes occurred in American restaurants, making the sector the eighth-most likely place for attacks. Moreover, according to the Unified Crime Report by the FBI, businesses that lack a comprehensive security system are 4.5x more likely to be targets of theft and burglary. In fact, the report found that if an alarm is present at the business, then about 60% of burglars sought out an alternative target. If you are a restaurant owner, then you should take the appropriate measures to protect your restaurant against property crimes. At Monarch, we’re here to help you build a security system with security cameras that works for you and your restaurant.

Keeping an Eye on Your Restaurant: The Benefits of Restaurant Security Cameras

With the restaurant security cameras offered by Verkada, you can help protect your clientele, staff, and property. After all, restaurant security cameras help to reduce unauthorized access to your property. It is one of the most visible deterrents a restaurant owner can use to help protect their company from prevalent crimes such as theft, robbery, and dine-and-dashes. There are countless more benefits to restaurant security cameras. Consider the following advantages of restaurant security cameras:

Deter Theft and Robbery

Since the pandemic first began, restaurants have become a popular target for criminal activities. Often, criminals target cash and go straight for the restaurant’s safe. Thus, restaurant security cameras allow one to deter crimes such as robberies, employee theft, dine-and-dashes, vandalism, assault, or other malicious behaviors. Additionally, security cameras help your restaurant security personnel identify suspicious activities both inside and outside the restaurant. Overall, restaurant security cameras ensure the safety of staff and clientele.

Reduce Emergency Response Time

In the case of an emergency like a burglary, you can dramatically reduce the authorities’ response time by sharing the live feed of your surveillance cameras via SMS. You can rest assured that your people and your assets are safe and secure with this feature.

Evidence in Case of Crimes

Restaurants often find it challenging to provide substantial evidence in a case that can be considered indisputable. Any court case can be complicated by the constant back-and-forth between witnesses and persuasion techniques of a lawyer. What cannot be contested, though, is a clear and concise video depicting an action – criminal or not. For this reason, many restaurant owners depend on Verkada security cameras. Rest assured that our restaurant security cameras capture 24/7 footage that is accessible on the cloud anywhere, anytime.

Evidence to Quickly Resolve In-House Conflicts

Although it is less than ideal to have in-house conflicts, it is a reality that many restaurant owners face. These conflicts can range from simple spats and arguments to full blown violence. Such conflicts, particularly those involving harassment, can be very difficult to resolve. So, even though one hopes that using footage from security cameras to resolve a conflict won’t be necessary, it is comforting to know that one has a conclusive record of employee interaction in case a “difference of opinion” arises. Moreover, Verkada restaurant security cameras and environmental sensors that detect noise levels can even help restaurant owners identify a potential issue before it even arises.

People rarely decide to start a fight with a coworker out of the blue; instead, animosity often festers over time and eventually bubbles to the point where someone is hurt or worse. With Verkada’s restaurant security cameras, you can keep a watchful eye on your employees – even when you’re not at your company – so as to prevent any serious in-house conflicts.

Improve Employee Productivity

For example, Verkada environmental sensors let you know when there is crowding going on. You can then look to your security cameras – on the very same platform – to assess the situation. Overall, Verkada’s restaurant security cameras and devices can help you be sure that you’re maximizing profit.

Nowadays, restaurants are looking for ways to provide a sense of safety for their employees and customers. You can give your restaurant a sense of safety and credibility by installing security cameras. As mentioned, cameras can help deter crime and can also be used to identify criminals.

Cameras in your business can also help improve response time in the event of an emergency; this may help employees feel safe in their working environment. Overall, you can keep your staff and clientele safe with Verkada cameras and devices.
