We’re continuing our series this week on the why of business security cameras. Here at Experience Audio Video we can talk all day about the what (which brands we offer, what features they have) and the how (expert installation from our experienced team). But we thought it’d be good to take some time to look at the why, too: why bother installing a security system at your business?

This week we’re looking at one of the most prevalent and perhaps obvious reasons to install business security cameras: video evidence.

Business Security Cameras Provide Video Evidence

One of the most important reasons to install business security cameras in your place of business is to have a video record of events that have transpired. There are numerous scenarios where you might want to have video evidence. Here are a few.

Video Record of Criminal Activity

First, a security camera system gives you a video record of any physical criminal activity that takes place in your business. Vandalism, robbery, theft, assault and more— you’ll have a video record of any visible criminal activity that takes place in view of your cameras.

Once the police get involved, your video footage of the event will prove helpful in moving forward.

Video Record of Suspects

Not only do you capture a video record of the criminal activity itself, you capture a video record of the people engaged in the activity. This, too, can be of tremendous use to law enforcement in establishing identities for suspects. It can also clear your own personnel of suspicion of wrongdoing or complicit behavior.

Video Record of Suspicious Behavior

Last, a quality security system can give you a video record of suspicious behavior. By catching suspicious behavior before it turns criminal, you can save yourself hassle and even loss down the road.
