Have you ever considered security cameras for your business? In this day and age, odds are, you have. But do you know where the optimal camera placement would be for your business? Here at Security Essentials of Lexington we can help. We’ll show you the best places to put the cameras, professionally install them and provide realtime monitoring to keep you, your employees and your business safe.

Start with the Obvious

So where exactly should the cameras go? Well, every building and business is different, but the most obvious beginning is the entrances and exits. Most trouble will walk right in the front door. By having a security camera you and your staff know right away when someone comes in, even when you may be in a back room. Add monitors in clear view of the entrances and exits to alert customers to the presence of security cameras. Security cameras can be a major deterrent to shoplifters and others who mean to cause trouble or harm.

Blind Spots

Inside and outside, blind spots and hidden areas are a prime place for HD security cameras. Dumpsters, loading areas and the far reaches of the parking lot are a thief’s and vandal’s favorite places. Keeping these areas well-lit so your cameras can do their job is also important. Inside hallways, near restrooms or fitting rooms, far corners of the store and behind large displays are a shoplifter’s dream. If they know they can be seen and that someone is monitoring the camera, again this is a major deterrent.

A Delicate Issue

No business owner wants to think or believe that their employees could or would steal from them. Unfortunately, that is not the reality. So while you need to focus on the possibility of theft or mischief from outside sources, you need to do everything you can to mitigate the possibility of it coming from within. Your employees have access to every, or almost every, area of the business premises. If you have an office they have access to storage rooms, breakrooms and copy rooms. At retail locations they are dealing with money at the cash register, inventory in the stock room, breakrooms and possibly an office. Having cameras focused where your employees spend their time goes a long way to helping them stay honest.
