Important Tips & Considerations
System Configuration – When setting up a video security system for your retail store, there are several key considerations:
Privacy Protection – Always install your security cameras in public areas, such as the sales floor, the customer service desk, or warehouse/inventory rooms. Avoiding areas such as bathrooms and employee break rooms will maintain the privacy for your employees and customers.
Disruptions – Power surges or outages can lead to damage or disruptions in your video surveillance footage. While these risks are not common, you should consider having an alternate power supply and/or security system in place should this occur in your store.
Theft and Vandalism – Cameras and recorders are often a target for thieves looking to disguise or protect their identities. Always keep your recording solution in a safe & locked location, and supplement your security system with covert cameras to capture video evidence should your traditional cameras be disabled.
