There are various causes; the start of seasonal sales, the release of limited-edition products, high-value stock on the premises, but retail workers are often the victims of violence and theft. Few outlets can afford permanent security guards which means there remains only one, genuine deterrent against criminal behaviour – high-resolution CCTV.
Fire is also a persistent threat. Stockrooms and warehouses, particularly those storing flammable goods such as clothes need advanced smoke and thermal detection to prevent disaster.
What does the retail/commercial sector need/expect from CCTV security?
- Crime Prevention – Theft and the threat of violence are amongst the primary concerns for retailers. Cameras at each Point of Sale producing high-quality video and images and facial recognition act as powerful deterrents.
- Compensation Prevention – Retail sites are often busy and can become cluttered depending on the type of product being sold. As such, there is an increased risk of accidents. This creates a need for CCTV to provide clear evidence in the event of an incident involving either a customer or employee.
- Fire Surveillance – Stockrooms and warehouses, particularly those storing flammable goods such as clothes need advanced smoke and thermal detection to prevent disaster.
- Coverage – To prevent instances of theft, retailers need CCTV with full site coverage providing 24/7 surveillance and high-quality output.
