It is becoming more natural and sensible to use digital technologies to enhance the security of goods and people, and to obtain accurate information about places of commercial or living activities.
When it comes to protection and deterrence, the surveillance camera system is one of the most powerful tools to be put in place, in your home or workplace. In addition to the wired or wireless alarm, its use offers several possibilities to:
- Track operations and activities in real time or offline
- Store and view previous video recordings
- cover large areas for controlling the flow of goods and people on a construction site, in a store, or a warehouse…
In short, it is time to discover, in detail, the benefits of this surveillance system.
Remote large spaces management
To monitor large areas of operation, it can be tedious to organize a security team efficiently and reliably. The surveillance camera system allows, by a simple strategic positioning, to crisscross an extended area with excellent angles of view from elevated observation points.
Thus, a simple technical surveillance room where the images captured by the cameras are centralized is enough to see suspicious movements in real time and ensure better interventions by the security forces. These may be shops, places visited or occupied by a host of people, museums, supermarkets, educational institutions or training institutions, penitentiaries, or a large, multi-room home.
You can monitor your home, store and other spaces by sitting comfortably behind your smartphone or computer screen.
Automatic and real-time alerts
Some installed cameras have alarm systems linked to motion sensors to trigger alerts in the event of an anomaly. Thus, a person will be quickly reported when they enter unauthorized hours in a protected area. They can alert the homeowner even when he is away, allowing him to set off the alarm if necessary and alert his security team or law enforcement.
The owner is able to follow visitors to his residence, the times of exits and arrivals of people and products or goods that circulate in the area in detection, and this, at all times, since the CCTV cameras run continuously. This system is therefore a major reinforcement to thewireless alarm or a conventional wired alarm.
Energy and financial resource savings
There is also the ability to trigger video recordings and alarms, only when motion sensors report suspicious activity. This makes the device economical in electrical energy consumption and image storage compared to systems and devices that record 24/7. You will also be able to select only the sequences or these movements have intervened, making it easier for the recording viewers to work.
In large equipped areas, the workload of security personnel decreases, because instead of a large patrol force, a screen monitoring team and a field team are sufficient to manage the space, even if extended. The intervention phase can also be entrusted to an external company or law enforcement for great speed and efficiency.
Reducing cases of assault, and accurate information when they occur.
As the law requires users of such equipment to report the presence of cameras to potential visitors, this system deters several unprepared burglars either before or during violations when they discover the video protection device. Studies have shown that the surveillance camera keeps more than half of burglars away, who fear leaving too obvious clues about their identity.
The recordings do identify a significant amount of information about intruders, making it easier for investigators to define and arrest suspects’ profiles.
In the event of anaccident or a crime,it is also the tools to absolve the responsibilities and prove the innocence of individuals wrongfully charged with theft or offences. This gives the owners of the premises a better peace of mind and serenity, as well as the users of the monitored infrastructure.
The various places to install the surveillance camera to enjoy it
In a residence
In a residence,video surveillance encourages occupants and staff to be more rigorous and strictly against the rules. This assesses the effectiveness and actual working time of maintenance teams or other tasks. If your building is far away in the countryside, monitoring specialists will be able to continue to monitor your property even when you are hundreds of miles away.
On a construction site
On a construction site,or long-term activities, this deters the possible theft of equipment and products intended for operations on the site. When they do occur, the checks lead to a quick understanding of the perpetrators of these acts. In the event of an accident, the recordings allow us to better situate the faults or responsibilities. Insurance premiums are also lower for space covered by video surveillance.
In a store
In a store or in a store protected by thesedevices, shoplifting and burglaries are becoming rarer. In addition, visitors and clients avoid causing violent disturbances and incidents or physical assaults to avoid being caught red-handed. Warehouses become safe places where your belongings are safe, and violations are more easily prevented or punished.
Precautions to ensure effectiveness and sustainability

They will have to optimize the investment because of certain considerations. Indeed, the network of cameras must be positioned as best as possible, to remain out of the reach of reckless aggressors who could physically destroy them.
