Security Cameras in Stores: Keeping Customers Safe

As the world progresses, security becomes more and more important. In stores, this means that security cameras are becoming increasingly common. Security cameras have many benefits, including deterring crime and providing evidence in the event of a crime. Overall, security cameras in stores help keep both employees and customers safe.

What are The Benefits of Security Cameras in Stores?

The use of security cameras in stores has become increasingly popular. There are many benefits to using security cameras, including deterring crime, catching criminals, and providing evidence in court.

Security cameras can act as a deterrent to crime. If potential criminals know that they are being watched, they are less likely to commit a crime. This is especially true if the cameras are visible. Cameras can also be used to catch criminals. If a crime is committed, the footage from the security cameras can be used to identify the perpetrator. This can help lead to their arrest and conviction.

Finally, security camera footage can be used as evidence in court. If a crime is captured on camera, the footage can be used in court to help prosecute the perpetrator. This type of evidence is often very convincing to a jury. Overall, there are many advantages to employing security cameras in stores.

Continuous Security Monitoring
Monitor security cameras in stores 24/7 feature of Verkada

Remote security monitoring is a process that allows security professionals to keep an eye on your property and assets from afar 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are many benefits of using remote security monitoring when you have security cameras in stores. Some benefits includes deterring crime, catching criminals in the act, providing evidence for criminal prosecution, and peace of mind.

  • Deter Theft, Vandalism, and Crime: Store security systems with remote security monitoring can be an effective deterrent to criminals. If potential criminals are aware that their activities are being actively monitored, their likelihood of committing a crime decreases.
  • Identify Criminals in Real-time: Remote security monitoring is an important security measure as it can help catch criminals in the act. This type of system provides a proactive approach to security by alerting security personnel to potential risks as they are happening, rather than after the fact.
  • Provide Evidence: Remote security monitoring can also provide evidence for prosecution in the event of a crime. This ensures that criminals are apprehended and prosecuted, and it may protect your mall from a repeat offense.
  • Peace of Mind: Remote security monitoring can provide peace of mind for business owners. Knowing that your property has round-the-clock protection in the event of an emergency can help reduce anxiety and stress levels.

Security Cameras in Stores: Access Control

Verkada Access Control Family to monitor employees

Another critical store security measure is access control. An access control system is a security measure that regulates who has access to certain premises. There are many different types of access control systems, but they all have one common goal: to keep unauthorized people out while allowing authorized people in. Furthermore, access control allows staff to move around quickly with keycards to maximize efficiency.

There are numerous approaches to controlling access to a building, and Monarch can assist you in determining which approaches to use for your store security system.

Verkada’s AC41 Door Controller

Additionally, you can easily connect your Access Controller with your cameras using Verkada Command to provide real-time video analytics on access-related events. Thus, you are able to not only view what is happening at the buildings’ points of entry, but also take proactive action for any significant occurrences. The door controller, then, is an essential for store security.

The SV11 Environmental Sensor

SV11 Environmental sensor to monitor health for store security

The Verkada SV11 all-in-one environmental sensor can monitor the health and safety of buildings, taking store security to a whole other level. The SV11 environmental sensor monitors 8 different aspects of the environment: the total volatile organic compounds (TVOCS), the air quality index (AQI), particulate matter 2.5 (PM 2.5), the temperature and relative humidity, noise levels, vaping, and motion. Overall, the automated situational awareness provided by the SV11 is key in improving safety and security.

The cloud-based sensor instantly connects to the cloud via Ethernet. This makes it easy to scale since there are no servers, databases, or on prem clients to manage. Moreover, since they are cloud-based, sensors are ready to use within minutes. You can then manage the sensors from Verkada’s web-based Command platform. This makes it easy and secure to remotely access on any device, anywhere. Furthermore, sensor security is maintained through continual, automatic firmware updates.
