areas such as dining rooms, lobbies, offices,kitchens, drive-through
lanes and cash registers.
Theft and Vandalism Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Potential thieves will often times
target security camera before a theft by vandalising the cameras.
Cameras that are damaged or even stolen can cause gaps in your security
video footage and can leave a restaurant very susceptible to crime or
theft. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s important to have a backup security plan so you may protect
your customers, employees, and the restaurant in the event one of your

cause a great deal of problems to your surveillance system. Even strong
storms or wind gusts can cause damage to your security camera system.
This can lead to interruptions in your security recording. Always take
precautions when installing your cameras to make sure you have proper
backups and surge protection.
Fast Food CCTV Considerations
There are many factors when considering the security needs
for a fast food restaurant. We suggest that you strongly consider the
following when looking to install your surveillance system:
Consider your biggest security needs and build your system around it.
How many times has an incident occurred and you wished you had caught the incident on camera?
Over the past year have you had any problems?
How is your restaurant currently set up?
Do you provide a seating area such as a dining room and drive-through service?
Do you only offer a Drive-thru service?
How is your neighborhood? Does your location contribute to your overall security?
What are your working hours? Are your hours extended or all-day hours?
If your business works around the clock consider that
employees working those night shift hours (12AM-8AM) may possibly need
more stringent surveillance due to heightened security risk of crime and
Setting Up Franchise Security Cameras Ã¢â‚¬â€œ
Install cameras at all open areas such as lobbies, kitchens, dining areas, drive-through lanes, offices and cash registers.
All entrances, exits and drive-thru lanes should have fixed
cameras covering them so you may record clear picture of every visitor
or customer that exits or enters your restaurant
Cash registers and administrative areas should also have
fixed cameras installed covering them. This will help protect your
assets and employees
Security cameras should also be placed outside ( perimeter
cameras, parking lots, etc) to help protect your outdoor play areas,
dining areas, and parking lot.
