Important Tips & Considerations

System Configuration – When setting up a video security system for your retail store, there are several key considerations:

  • Position cameras at all entrances and exits (preferably at eye level or above) in order to get a clear identity of each person who enters your store.
  • Place surveillance cameras in stock rooms and storage areas to prevent employee theft and track your merchandise.
  • Focus additional cameras (consider hidden cameras) on areas where valuable merchandise (jewelry, electronics, pharmaceuticals) is stored or shelved.
  • Always consider using a networkable video recorder (NVR) to manage your security footage. NVRs record and store video locally, and enable you to broadcast your security footage via the Internet – allowing you to monitor your retail store(s) from anywhere, at any time.
  • Outdoor cameras in your parking lot can help reduce theft of customer cars, shopping carts, and help to reduce store liability in the event of accident.

Privacy Protection – Always install your security cameras in public areas, such as the sales floor, the customer service desk, or warehouse/inventory rooms.  Avoiding areas such as bathrooms and employee break rooms will maintain the privacy for your employees and customers.

Disruptions – Power surges or outages can lead to damage or disruptions in your video surveillance footage.  While these risks are not common, you should consider having an alternate power supply and/or security system in place should this occur in your store.

Theft and Vandalism – Cameras and recorders are often a target for thieves looking to disguise or protect their identities.  Always keep your recording solution in a safe & locked location, and supplement your security system with covert cameras to capture video evidence should your traditional cameras be disabled.
