Whilst CCTV camera’s are becoming a more common and accepted part of daily life, their use means compliance with data protection laws in order to protect the privacy of those being filmed.
A well-maintained system will ensure compliance with security regulations and also ensure you achieve high reviews for how safe and secure guests feel whilst staying at your hotel.
Despite its benefits, CCTV can be viewed as an intrusion so it is important to ensure the benefits and rationale for installing CCTV is communicated to those it is intended to protect. This includes strict guidelines for usage and storage of any data that is captured.
Typically, when CCTV surveillance camera’s are installed in lobby areas, bars, restaurants lifts and lifts they are recording behaviour. Therefore, the quality of image is important, such that, should any untoward behaviours occur, they can be reported quickly and evidenced.
Our approach is to work with hotel management to identify the key areas that require surveillance. Typical examples include surveillance of car parks, hotel corridors, fire exits and areas where guests may be left alone, such as the swimming pool.
Effective and well-maintained CCTV systems and fully trained users are essential elements of ensuring hotel feel safe and secure when they sleep at your hotel.
If your current CCTV System is older than 3 years then it would be well worthwhile taking a look at the huge improvements that have been made in CCTV technology in recent years including advancements in picture quality, hard drive storage and connectivity requirements.
A well installed and correctly positioned CCTV camera system will act as a deterrent against theft or other damages. It also can provide the evidence of what was stolen or damaged and who was responsible.
Surveillance cameras can be used to validate many things, from validating deliveries to tracking people movements. Correctly installed CCTV can be used provide visibility on activity areas such as entrances, corridors, gyms, restaurants, bars, meeting rooms, kitchens store rooms, as well as what is being loaded into or off loaded from delivery vehicles.
The environment within a hotel can be very busy which means it can be hard for managers and supervisors to monitor activity. CCTV can be used as an investigatory and health and safety management tool as it provides visibility on things that would ordinarily go unresolved or unreported. Surveillance systems can be used to investigate incidents thoroughly and help to prove or disprove their occurrence and/or cause.
Installing CCTV systems can increase productivity can stop employee time wasting as they are aware that their behaviours are being captured in CCTV. The footage can also be used as a training too to teach the right behaviours.
