If you are reading this article you would be wondering why does an office need CCTV Camera? From an employee’s point of view, you may feel that it is unfair or even a violation of your privacy. In a surveillance society, everyone is being watched not only by a CCTV Camera but through our internet browser. This term is referred to as “Panoptic Power”. Foucalt, a psychologist came up with this ideology that people will be well-behaved for fear of being watched. Nonetheless, it is important for a business to ensure that the overall safety and possessions of all individuals are comprehensively protected as well.
Commercial properties such as office buildings and retail outlets require careful consideration of an integrated security solution. As their vicinity is more accessible, there are usually security guards that are on 24-hour surveillance however their eyes and ears are not extensive enough to provide an over watch of the entire premises. This is where CCTV Cameras play a vital role in the daily operations of a business.
The technology behind CCTV Camera is so advanced that it is able to zoom in to record license plate numbers and even specific features of a face.
In the retail industry, while staff are attending to customers, theft might go unnoticed but with a CCTV Camera, the footage would have been recorded and it would be easy to catch the culprit. This would instill fear around people who visit the store and it will prevent future possibilities of theft.
