Surveillance systems in Houston have been a major factor in not only protecting businesses from theft but also from employee/customer related lawsuits. This saves businesses a significant amount of money each year. In a two year study of one of the largest retailers in Houston, showed that losses due to theft, customer lawsuits and workers compensation claims, was cut by over 80% after a professional surveillance system was installed.
Additional studies also showed that surveillance cameras and security systems also reduced the amount of incidents involving assault (both instigated by employees and the general public), as well as vandalism (destruction of property).
The graph below shows the most recent survey, conducted by ICS, on which areas Houston based businesses are most vulnerable. Installing video surveillance cameras, in key locations, within the buildings and the outside property owned by a company, can reduce these vulnerabilities significantly.
So, one question that’s always asked is: How much does a professional Houston surveillance system cost? We’re glad to report that the cost has become increasingly more affordable in the last few years, mainly due to increased production and lowering cost of technology related products used to create the system itself. So the cost has gone down but the quality has actually gone up. The system itself can be set to record 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or rules-based programming can be implemented to record specific events. These pre-set recordings can be automatically emailed to emails specified by the business owner. Some Houston surveillance systems can even be monitored remotely via select smartphones and PDA’s.
If you have been considering installing surveillance cameras in your Houston location, there’s never been a better time to do it. ICS will help you design, install and manage a surveillance system that will give you peace of mind and protect you from loss.
