There are various causes; the start of seasonal sales, the release of new limited-edition products, high value stock, but retail workers are often the victims of violence and theft. Few outlets can afford permanent security guards which means there remains only one, genuine deterrent against criminal behavior- high resolution CCTV.
Fire is also a persistent threat. Stockrooms and warehouses, particularly those storing flammable goods such as clothing need advanced smoke and thermal detection to prevent disaster.
What does the retail/commercial sector need from CCTV?
- Crime Prevention- Theft and the threat of violence are amongst the primary concerns for retailers. Cameras through the facility and at each POS station producing high-quality video, images, and facial recognition act as powerful deterrents.
- Compensation Prevention– Retail sites are often busy and can become cluttered depending on the type of product being sold. As such, there is an increased risk of accidents. This creates a need for CCTV to provide clear evidence in the event of an incident involving either a customer or employee.
- Fire Surveillance/Monitoring – Stockrooms and warehouses, particularly those storing flammable goods such as clothing need advanced smoke and thermal detection to prevent damage to the facility and inventory.
- Coverage– To prevent instances of theft, retailers need CCTV with full site coverage that provides 24/7 monitoring and high-quality output.
