Secure your Assets: Install Commercial Security Cameras Today
Break-ins cost Canadian businesses millions of dollars each year, and too many businesses leave themselves vulnerable to both external and internal theft. In fact, businesses lose more money to their own employees than to shoplifters, leading to serious negative effects on their profitability. According to the Retail Council of Canada, employees steal on average $2,500 in cash or goods before they are caught, whereas customers steal $175. Stanley Security offers tailored video surveillance solutions to keep your business safe. A critical component of a comprehensive security strategy, cameras are an effective crime deterrent and a key tool for documenting security breaches on your property.
Security camera location is everything
According to TechRepublic, camera placement is the most important aspect of your surveillance system. Outdoor cameras are an important deterrent for thieves and help you identify suspicious individuals around your business. They can also improve apprehension rates recording incidents or thefts that have occurred in the past. Indoor cameras also act as a theft deterrent and let you keep an eye on the inside of your business, including monitoring employees during work hours. They allow you to supervise certain zones that are high priority for protection, especially where cash or valuable goods are held. Our cameras also have the IR technology for both indoor and outdoor needs, to monitor any unlawful activities in the dark.
What kind of security cameras work best for business?
With so many types of cameras available you may be unsure of how to choose the best camera system for your business. We have partnered with Alarm.com to offer you a minimum of 3,000 video clips stored in the cloud before they overwrite old files, with more independent storage options available to keep your files forever if needed.
The live feed of the cameras and the stored clips can all be accessed from a smartphone or a computer.
Wifi cameras are the most economical option and best for small businesses.
POE cameras which use an ethernet connection, are best for small or medium businesses with some vandal-resistant options available.
CCTV cameras are best for medium businesses requiring four or more cameras. The CCTV cameras have high-quality 4MPX cameras with WDR that help balance lighting to create one clear image and are ideal for recording areas such as store entrances, where the contrast between indoor and outdoor lighting can make image quality a challenge. For added security, consider adding a recorder.
Dome cameras are encased in a protective plastic dome, which makes them highly resistant to vandalism as well as dissuasive to potential thieves. High-resolution and varifocal, dome cameras are a popular choice for many business types including hotels, restaurants and retail stores.
Wedge cameras feature de-warping technology and are also vandal-proof.
Bullet cameras are high-resolution cameras known for their distinctive bullet shape. Ideal for outdoor use and have de-warping technology.
PTZ cameras are high-quality motorized cameras offering pan & tilt options and optical zoom.
Stream Video Recorder
Available options from Stanley Security include the stream video recorder for WiFi and POE cameras (Alarm.Com App) and the Network video recorder for CCTV cameras (Stanley Security App). Once you’ve selected your system, you’ll also want to choose the best camera type for your business surveillance needs.
