Do you need a security system?
- 30 Dec, 2020
For most individuals, the safety and security of their family and home tops all other concerns. The beauty of a security alarm system is that it has immense deterrent value – most burglars and robbers will steer clear of premises that have a security system or burglar alarm conspicuously installed.
If the worst case scenario does happen to occur and you find yourself the victim of a crime, video recordings and their time stamps make it a lot easier for police to identify and trace the criminals and your possessions. This means that you are more likely to retrieve the items that were lost and more quickly, too.
Residential security systems allow you to observe the actions of the people to whom you voluntarily give access to your home. The nanny, babysitter, cleaners, gardeners and pool maintenance staff can be monitored via basic or hidden cameras.
With our interconnected range of residential home security systems, you can monitor any part of your home from any room in the house, at work or even from halfway around the world.
Offices and Retail Stores
For many business owners, theft by customers and even staff members is of prime concern because they cut deeply into their businesses’ earnings.
A combination of overt and covert cameras can help to identify problem areas, shortcomings in company training or policy, and unsuitable staff. They can be a great tool to boost productivity and combat slacking and theft.
Monitored premises are also less likely to be burgled or vandalised by miscreants. Cameras that monitor the surrounding areas discourage undesirable individuals from gathering in the vicinity and indulging in activities that hurt the image of your business.
Together, these advantages will help pay for the purchase, installation and maintenance of the security system itself very quickly.
Educational Institutions – Schools, Pre-schools and Tertiary Education Centres
It is virtually impossible to find an educational institution today that does not have a security system installed on its premises.
From cameras that cover the boundary walls and monitor access gates to in-class ones that act as a tool to promote better behaviour from both staff and students, a security system can make an immense difference to your reputation. Recordings can play an important role when allegations are made to verify or refute them quickly and effectively.
A reliable security system goes a long way in convincing parents that your premises are safe and secure, capable of providing the positive environment in which their children will be able to learn and grow effectively.
Unmonitored and Semi-Monitored Areas – Vacant Lots, Carparks and Abandoned Buildings
Unmonitored areas quickly become a gathering place for society’s undesirable elements for the isolation and freedom they offer. Semi-monitored areas like large carparks with gate attendants can also pose the same problem.
Our range of affordable security systems lets you cover every inch of your premises with overlapping arc of observation. This lets you monitor all areas with multiple cameras to ensure that no act or crime goes unseen.
As with other locations, prominent security equipment is a very effective deterrent and prevents problems from arising in the first place.
Do I Need a DVR Security System?
What is a DVR Security System?
DVR is the acronym for Digital Video Recording. DVR can capture high-quality images (and also sound) from a camera and keep the recordings for access later.
A DVR Security System uses one or more cameras to monitor a location. It stores the captured data on a hard drive similar to the one in your PC for easy access for you. These recordings can be shared or reproduced by police and other agencies if the need arises.
Better Home Safety and Security
As a deterrent to criminals, Cheap Home Security attaches prominent signage to any property where we install a security system. Unfortunately, there are occasions where this tactic does not work.
In these cases, a DVR Security System can be invaluable. Police investigations are greatly aided by the presence of clear, time-stamped recordings of the events. It allows authorities to pin-point the actions of the intruders, their method of entry and escape, and even to aid in determining their identities.
Such recordings also significantly simplify the resolution of any insurance claims you make.
A Better Environment for Your Family
Perhaps the nanny, maybe the cleaning staff or was it the painters you hired? Sometimes, loss or damage in the home points squarely at someone who was voluntarily given access to the premises. There have also been numerous cases of hired staff behaving inappropriately or criminally with family members, pets or each other.
A DVR Security System ensures that everyone you welcome into your home conducts themselves in a befitting manner and abides by the rules that you have set in place. As with intruders, DVR recordings can assist with successful prosecution and quick resolution of matters.
Improved Workplace Efficiency and Loss Prevention
Are you struggling with a loss prevention problem? Are you unable to identify whether customers or staff are responsible? Do you believe you employees are slacking too much when you are not around?
A DVR Security System is the ideal solution for all of these problems. A combination of prominent and covert cameras can help isolate the source of previously-inexplicable loss and simultaneously encourage your employees to work harder. They help greatly with successful prosecutions.
Best of all, these targets can be achieved without your constant personal presence on the premises – the DVR recordings can be accessed and reviewed at your own leisure.
Insurance Fraud Prevention
Cases constantly come to light where individuals try to fake an injury or manufacture a claim for harm or damage to force a business or organisation to pay compensation.
If you would like to discourage such behaviour on your premises or protect your reputation and that of your business against spurious claims, a DVR Security System can be an irreplaceable asset. You have a choice of hidden cameras and prominently-displayed ones to help you achieve the outcomes you desire.
And remember, our DVR Security Systems are compatible on all popular platforms – Android, iOS and Windows users will be able to access and monitor the action from multiple devices anywhere.
