Gyms have a constant flow of members coming and leaving the health club. This makes them an ideal candidate for video security. Exclusive gyms and country clubs often attract thieves because the members perceived wealth. This makes members and the property easy targets. A well-installed security camera system will help keep your staff, members, and company assets safe from vandalism, theft, and possible violence.
Gym CCTV System Benefits
Theft and vandalism prevention – Well placed security cameras and monitoring warning signs will help prevent vandalism and theft to your property and your members’ automobiles.
Easy install – HD Digital cameras are much easier to install and configure. Many of these newer HD cameras can be set up where you need them in minutes and can easily be reconfigured without professional help.
Protecting members – Surveillance cameras, especially in parking lot areas, will help to protect vehicles owned by members and staff and help to prevent break-ins.
Image Improvement – Having surveillance systems present coupled with security guards, helps to bolster your business image and gives potential members a good impression. Current members are assured that their visit to your facility is safe and secure.
Health Club Security Camera Risks
Privacy Concerns– Protecting the privacy of your staff and members is very important. CCTV cameras should only be installed in public areas. Keep cameras out of break rooms and locker rooms.
Power Outages – Power outages and electrical surges can easily damage your surveillance system or even disrupt your video footage. Though rare, these damages do occur. We suggest you properly protect your camera investment and also have a backup security plan in the event your camera system goes down.
Weather damage – Wind, bad weather, rain and even falling branches are just some of the things that can easily damage your outdoor security cameras. We suggest you use properly sealed cameras and housings when installing cameras outdoors.
