The security camera industry has changed vastly throughout the last 20 years or so. The cameras they retail have gone from recording grainy pictures stored on videotape to High Definition images that are stored on The Cloud or sent to a mobile phone. The immense change in a camera's capabilities has given property owners more choice than ever before when it comes to creating their ideal security infrastructure. One of these choices is thermal cameras.Ideal for large scale or unique outdoor environments(such as areas that have obstructions that make normal viewing difficult),thermal security cameras detect heat that is generated from an object or individual.

Security cameras are now omnipresent in society; protecting property and people from theft, damage and antisocial behaviour, they give us the opportunity to not just monitor and record what's going on, but they also provide a deterrent against incidents happening in the first place too.There are two types of systems used for video surveillance – IP cameras and Anlogue CCTV systems. Whilst both are used for the same basic purpose, they differ in the way they function in order to meet whatever the specific needs of the operator dictate.An IP (Internet Protocol) camera, is a digital video camera used for surveillance and is also able to capture images and transmit them over the Internet (via a fast Ethernet link).

Having a CCTV camera installation in place allows you to ensure that everything (and everyone) on the premises is kept safe. Aside from giving you the means of monitoring and recording what's happening, CCTV also works as a great deterrent, putting off would-be offenders from committing nefarious acts.The problem is that there are too many businesses out there that either aren't making good use of their security cameras or have allowed them to fall into disrepair (which is something that many would-be offenders pick up on). Falling behind the times is an invitation for them to do their worst, causing the business much harm; so when is the right time to upgrade CCTV?When To Upgrade Your CCTV Camera InstallationIf you're responsible for the running of a premises, whether that's a retail store, a pub or bar, gym or health club,school, college or any other type of public or private building, here are some signs to look out for when evaluating your current CCTV camera installation:CCTV set-up and configurationOne of the most obvious signs to look out for is the image quality that the camera is able to capture.

Whilst running your own retail business is often very rewarding, sometimes it presents difficult challenges that require much thought and action to overcome. Take shoplifting for example – accounting for much profit loss, incidences of theft can leave the business with a bad reputation that creates a poor in-store atmosphere and may even turn genuine customers away. So to treat the problem of shoplifting, retailers will put retail loss prevention at the heart of their operational strategy – but what methods do they use? Approaches To Prevent Shoplifting Whilst in an ideal world we'd love to trust everyone, the truth is that we do not know the intentions of everyone who enters through the doors of a retail store.

No matter where we go in public these days,it's fair to say that we'll be monitored by CCTV – in fact, it has become normal for us to expect any incidents that occur in public to have been captured on camera. No matter if it's on the street, in a shopping centre or the local library, it is automatically assumed that these places have cameras installed.But what about the places we don't automatically expect to have cameras? The use of CCTV installers in health clubs to create security systems may not immediately spring to mind – the data protection laws that restrict the use of cameras within 'areas where privacy may be expected' (such as changing rooms) is perhaps one reason why many people don't believe that cameras are omnipresent elsewhere in the building.

It has almost been a year now since the introduction of GDPR; the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, which came into force on the 25th May 2018, that safeguards the personal information of people. With so much attention focused on how websites manage the personal data of their users, it can be easy to assume that this regulation does not extend beyond the confines of the World Wide Web. Personal data comes in all forms, including the images recorded by IP CCTV Systems.Whether it's for security, health and safety or statistical reasons, the identifiable imagery that a business records is considered as personal data by GDPR.

As they think about how their security is handled, operators of public-serving buildings will understand that they will need to monitor all of the key areas at the same time.

One of the key areas that make a business successful (aside from offering great products and services, of course) is the customer service aspect. For many people, shopping is an experience and what they face will play heavily into how they perceive a business. Regardless of the quality or price of the products on offer, a bad experience will more than likely turn people away from a service.For the physical retailer, good customer service is how well the store is set up. Can customers find everything they need to? Is there staff around to ask questions to? Do they feel safe and secure in-store? For online retailers, a great customer experience is a quick,easy-to-use website that is able to display the product in great detail and offers a range of delivery options – options that are able to follow their order to the letter.
