21 Business Uses for CCTV

Whether a single camera or a fully networked system, CCTV can be a powerful deterrent to intruders and theft. But how else can you benefit? The following list contains 21 great business uses where our own customers have said they get financial benefit:

  • Accident analysis

  • Monitoring the length of the checkout queue is not too long
  • Encouraging a manager to not sit in his office when the business is busy

Can you add to this list of uses for Closed Circuit Television? Please do let us know!

To do all this though, you really do need quick and easy access to the footage, possibly from many different locations. Picaw customers can access their videos at any time via the Internet and as part of our continually improving service, all of our customers have the option to access both live and recorded video footage using our great new iPad/iPhone app.

"We're the experts in remote video systems!"
