The hope of patrolling perimeter boundaries, loading bays and monitoring rows and rows of racking and internal storage areas using manual techniques to guard against the threat of intruders, theft and other security risks are more or less impossible.
Installing CCTV surveillance systems enables warehouse and distribution centre operators to protect against the risk of fire and theft and reduce cost by removing the need for a physical security presence on site.
As well as recording and monitoring activity on a 24/7 basis, CCTV can augment other security measures with additional features such as facial recognition, people counts, audible warnings and line crossing triggers.
The use of CCTV is growing in demand, yet so is the perception that it is becoming an invasion of privacy and perhaps too ‘big brother’. The fear that systems will be hacked by cyber criminals and data leaked for commercial gain has also become a growing concern.
These issues can be resolved by ensuring that an SSAIB approved company installs and maintains the CCTV systems and camera’s monitoring your commercial premises.
Using encrypted passwords and maintaining a close control of access procedures together with appropriate data protection policies will ensure system integrity remains secure.
