At Verstech, we understand the complexities of feeling safe. We’d all like to rest easy in the knowledge that any rational individual wouldn’t break into your business or home. Yet, it does happen. So, to allay any fears, you should install a deterrent. We deliver first-class CCTV installation services to Southampton and beyond. Our advanced security systems are bespoke and quoted to fit your budget.
We’ll set the scene:
Your shift is over. Your staff have headed home. You lock up and follow suit. Yet when you return in the morning, you discover something’s not right. There’s glass on the floor. The door is open. Someone’s broken in and stolen anything worth stealing. Computers, monitors, sensitive information – all gone – and why? Well, there could be a number of reasons. Let’s explore the three different types of commercial burglary:
These thieves lack any clear planning and are impulsive. They scope out and pick on soft targets –businesses who don’t go to great lengths to protect their shops. These shops may not own expensive goods, yet these thieves will break in to take what they can carry. They seldom try to override alarm systems and will levy their way in through vulnerable points – such as an old door or window.
Smash and Grab
This is the most common type of burglary. It’s premeditated and characterised by two key things: speed and violence. Thieves will smash their way into the property – in a brutal and obvious capacity – and be out in a manner of minutes. The amount of damage caused by this burglary often prompts expensive physical repairs. That’s on top of lost goods and business hours for clean-up purposes.
These tend to be the ones that heist films are made about. They’re not only premeditated crimes but they’re expertly carried out. Thieves unobtrusively avoid alarm systems via external observation or internal information. Some remove high-value stock – like entire safes – and make their getaways with their crew in toe.
How can CCTV benefit your business?
- 24-hour recorded surveillance
- Assists insurance claims
- Protects staff and customers
- Supports health and safety
- Theft prevention
Any form of burglary can play havoc with insurance claims and – more importantly – peace of mind. Time is a key factor in most burglaries. As a business, you not only want to slow them down, you need to be able to “rewind time”. This way you can prove culpability to the court. If a would-be thief sees the risk of breaking into your premises too much, your property is safe for another day. Delay the risk before it occurs with our Southampton CCTV installation service.
The key components of CCTV are:
- A NVR (network video recorder), DVR (digital video recorder), or a hybrid NVR (a combination of the two)
- And of course . . . the installation itself!
This is where Verstech comes into our own as we have years of installation experience. It can be tricky getting all the gubbins to talk to each other but our team have the necessary skills to get you all set up. We can recommend the best coverage – both indoors and out – for your cameras and effectively calculate the cabling that would be needed. Our experienced engineers will securely connect your CCTV to your internet router too. This is imperative if you want to remotely view your property via something like a mobile phone app. It might sound complicated but this is second nature to us and we can rig it all up in no time.
Our team are more than happy to supply and install your CCTV systems. We can do this at any stage – so if you’ve had a crack at the installation and something’s not quite working out, don’t worry!
