Looking for a way to enhance your security to deter crime and keep employees honest? Have you considered added a video surveillance system?
If you’ve ever experienced theft or a security breach, then your first thought (after checking for damages) was likely to consider what you could in the future to prevent this type of incident from happening again.

Before mounting a camera on an office wall, discuss the logistics with a professional. There are state and federal laws that govern where employers can place cameras in the workplace. For example, a surveillance system in the restroom is a no-no.
The laws do vary by state, and we have experience in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, so we’ll be able to advise you in those areas.
Another reason to consult with a professional is to determine the type of camera you need and how many. While the concept of “you get what you pay for” is generally true, you might not require an expensive camera at your location. The type of camera and the quantity you should get depends on the level of detail you want for images, the size of your location, and your industry as a whole.
If you’re still on the fence, consider the fact that having a surveillance system can also reduce your insurance premiums. Depending on the system you choose, your cameras could potentially pay for themselves!
In this digital age, security is increasingly focused on hackers and data breaches. Unfortunately, this means that they often neglect physical security. It’s worth mentioning that all the effort you put into your cybersecurity is meaningless if a thief decides to rob your office of its computers.
Even though the cost of electronics has come down, imagine adding up the replacement fees for all of your equipment. Another panic-inducing moment is when you think about lost files and productivity as you try to retrieve everything from the cloud… and then bang your head in frustration when you realize you exceeded your data limit four years ago.
Small and medium-sized businesses sometimes think they can’t afford a security system. We’d respond that you can’t afford not to have one.
Give us a call, and we’ll find a solution that fits your needs and works within your budget.
