Viewing Video Surveillance as an Investment, Not an Expense
Adding or updating a video surveillance system is not another expense, it is an investment, and the return will be well over the initial cost. In the long run, you can save money, become safer, and obtain a higher net profit. Consider just a few numbers and ask yourself if you can afford NOT to install video surveillance.
A business can be vulnerable to over 1.2 million shoplifters and dishonest employees per year. In 2014, over $225 million in stolen product was successfully recovered by business owners with the help of honest employees, loss prevention personnel and a video surveillance system.
The average item stolen from a business in a theft is worth approximately $150, and the average dishonest employee can steal as much as $800 from a small business or store. (Source: Hayes International)
