Protecting your commercial space is essential if you want your business to run smoothly and successfully. You hopefully already have an alarm system installed, but have you considered security cameras?
There are certain things you should know about security cameras before installing them, including how they should be placed, where they should be placed, and where the information gathered goes. This guide will help you get started securing your facility to an even greater extent with watchful cameras.
Indoor or Outdoor?
If you have a storefront or people enter your building from the outside, security cameras will help you make sure that no one comes in who shouldn’t. You can monitor every face when they ring the doorbell and never have to wonder who is going to walk through your door.
But even if you are in a larger facility or office condo, security cameras at your indoor entrances can double your peace of mind. You don’t know who is visiting other spaces in the building, so cameras will again make sure no one is entering your commercial space without authorization.
How Should you Place your Cameras?
When it comes to security cameras, the most crucial feature of visitors that you want to capture is their face. Having multiple cameras at the entrance to your commercial facility means you don’t have to worry that you’re only seeing someone’s back.
What to do with your Information?
Security cameras can have multiple options for where the information goes. If you have full-time security staff, you may have someone responsible for monitoring the camera, and you might not want to record everything your camera sees.
On the other hand, if you’re worried about theft or other security concerns, retaining the information captured in data storage will help you identify and find culprits.

Are your patrons getting all of the information about your commercial bar that they should be?
With digital signage, you can keep both your employees and customers up-to-date on scheduled events, select notifications, and promotional opportunities. Create your own content to engage patrons while they drink and keep them around longer.
But beyond content related to your business, you can also use digital signage to boost your revenue with advertising dollars. With this kind of setup, you’ll work with a third-party advertising company to display ads on your digital signage. The downside of these advertising platforms is that you often won’t be able to control the content, which means your customers may not find them interesting.
Sticking with either of these methods exclusively can mean sacrificing your ability to keep everyone up to date. If you only have advertising on your digital signage, people may grow bored and ignore your signage altogether. But if you just have your own content, you’ll have to keep it updated regularly.
The ideal setup is typically to have a combination of advertising and business content, giving your customers relevant information promptly. You don’t have to spend as much time devising and uploading content, and you’ll have a fresh selection of advertising that helps promote other local spaces.
Finally, remember that you’re giving your customers something to look at other than their phones. TV stations and preferences vary, so giving people a new object to look at means they’ll stay happier longer. Use that to your advantage, and see greater success.
