Make your restaurant a hot spot, not an easy target for crime.

Security for restaurants and nightclubs can pose special security challenges due to high employee turnover, large customer counts during peak hours, perishable inventory and tight profit margins.

CameraScan designs, installs and maintains custom video surveillance systems that protect your operations and provide business intelligence that can maximize profits for your restaurant business.

  • Reduce employee and customer theft and fraud
  • Ensure employee and customer safety
  • Watch registers and cash handling
  • Monitor exteriors to prevent security issues
  • Identify areas for process and customer service improvement
  • Monitor kitchens for food handling and safety compliance

Here are more key ideas to keep in mind when considering video surveillance for your restaurant:

Monitor employees the ethical way.
Statistics show that approximately 80% of all restaurant theft is committed by employees, accounting for up to $6 million in loss across U.S. restaurants. Installing security cameras in stockrooms and other critical areas in the business can allow you to keep tighter control over the stock that is vital to running your day-to-day business. Cameras can even be designed to be installed in coolers and docks where the environmental conditions may make monitoring inventory more difficult than normal. Read more.

Monitor operations anytime from any device.
Restaurant owners need to keep an eye on business—and they can’t be everywhere at once. Remotely monitor operations, even when you are off premises. We will help you establish links between cameras and your Internet devices. Read more.

Install cameras in key areas.
CameraScan technicians will work with you to install cameras in key areas of vulnerability, including: common areas (dining room/lobbies), kitchens, cash registers, bars, storage areas, entries/exits and parking lots. A large number of security cameras fail to provide adequate protection simply because they only capture a small portion of the business being monitored. Cameras capable of covering 360-degree views are ideal for complete coverage without any time lapses in vantage points. Read more.

Quality equipment that works in restaurant atmospheres.
Many cameras under-perform or fail to work correctly under conditions of low light. Having equipment in place that is specially-designed to work in near darkness can prove to be extremely beneficial for restaurants. Infrared cameras provide security when light is absent after normal hours of operation. The sophistication and megapixel-capability of the equipment that you use can be critical when it comes to protection and prosecution after crimes have been committed. Cameras in business settings can also be equipped with face-recognition capabilities for a competitive price as well.
