Geelong CCTV installation can help protect your retail store

February 28, 2017

Shoplifting and burglaries can take a heavy toll on retail stores in Geelong so it’s worth considering CCTV installation to improve security at your business.

Bustling retail stores, with their constant stream of customers, require an extra layer of protection to stop thefts from occurring every day. Theft, be it food, clothing or other items stolen, costs Australia’s retail industry billions of dollars a year. That’s right, billions. In fact the National Retailers Association puts the figure at a whopping $4.5 billion.

So it’s no wonder concerned retailers are asking us at Geelong Monitoring Services for an effective solution to the problem of theft and even vandalism.

As Geelong CCTV installation specialists, we know that CCTV and IP systems can be a real deterrent to shoplifters and dishonest employees looking to swipe stock. They can also play a part in stopping would-be burglars from breaking into your business and stealing expensive products.

These systems, especially when linked to quality security alarm systems such as the Hills NX range of products, help retailers in a number of ways including lowering the theft rate and improving profits. They can make staff and customers feel better protected and may even assist in reducing your insurance premiums.

Geelong Monitoring Services will consult with you and carry out a free assessment of your premises before designing a system that’s customised to the individual security needs of your business. And then we’ll carry out a quality CCTV installation in Geelong for you, taking great care with camera placement to ensure you get the surveillance coverage you want.

Some retail stores might opt for extensive coverage of their store including cash register areas, entrances, exits, any blind spots and specific areas where prized or popular items are displayed. Perhaps you want to concentrate on the sales floor or maybe you just want cameras covering the service desk and the front door.

For CCTV systems ranging from a couple of cameras to more than 16, we’ve got you covered. We can also monitor the cameras 24/7 from our sophisticated monitoring centre. We also offer maintenance and alarm response services too.
