Key Benefits of Security Cameras for Retail Stores
Department Store Security Cameras Risks
Privacy – It is widely accepted to have cameras installed throughout public areas of department stores. Employee bathrooms, dressing rooms, and break rooms are commonly considered a breach of privacy.
Vandalism – You must consider the fact that surveillance systems may be vandalized or tampered with. You want to make sure that you have security measures in place in case this occurs.
These are just some of the things you should consider when determining the type of security video system your department store requires:
Is shoplifting a common problem at the store?
Have you had numerous incidents with employee theft?
What is the store’s inventory shrinkage for the last year?
What security systems do you currently have in the store?
Are security guards present at all times during store hours?
Has there been crimes committed at the store’s parking lot?
What type of items and merchandise do you currently sell?
Are there specific areas within the store that are more likely to be targeted?
Is your stores neighborhood prone to vandalism or theft?
Install security cameras at all entrances and exits of your store to monitor the flow and traffic of your customers. This will capture video footage of all your shoppers entering and leaving your store.
Ceiling-mounted security dome cameras offer comprehensive views of your store sales floor and individual product aisles.
Install cameras by your cash registers so you may monitor transactions, and help protect employee cashiers from theft, robbery attempts and customer service incidents that involve inappropriate customer conduct.
Storage rooms, as well as supply areas, should also have cameras installed to curb employee theft.
Parking lots, as well as garages, should not be left of your installation.
