Do you own a store here in the garden state of New Jersey? It does not matter if you are in a strip mall or in a large enclosed mall your store needs security cameras. Security Cameras are needed to help deter crimes. When a possible thief sees they are being filmed they will move on to their next target in most cases.
Today more than ever security cameras in shopping malls and stores are needed to help keep the public safe not only from small shoplifting crimes but from threats to the shopping malls as well. Video surveillance is often used as an aide today for the proper authorities to actually see what is taking place once a treat is called in.
Shopping malls use a wide variety of cameras to monitor shoppers throughout a shopping mall. These cameras are used to reduce theft and to improve the overall safety in the shopping mall. Cameras also, help store owners keep an eye on their employees. Store owners often install cameras in areas not only to watch the merchandise but to also watch employees on the cash register too. Cameras with remote viewing are a great way for the owner to watch their store even when they cannot be there with cameras that can now remote view from anywhere in the world. Owners can view their stores remotely from almost anywhere in the world that has internet with the use of their smart phone, tablet or lap top.
Most malls use CCTV security cameras to monitor common areas in the mall, these are areas such as the walkways, food courts and various halls in the mall. The crimes that happen in malls are typically shoplifting; menacing behavior involving juveniles and thefts. CCTV cameras are often watched by a central station monitoring station that will alert mall security or the proper authorities if they see something in the mall that has a safety concern.
Parking lots around the malls are another key area to a mall to make sure they are protected. Security cameras used in parking lots are often dome cameras. Dome cameras are not always easy to detect unless you are looking for them. These cameras because of their dome shape are also hard to know or see where they are pointing. Dome shaped cameras feature dark colored glass that often helps prevents them from being seen. Bullet cameras are used in parking lots as well; these cameras are made to withstand the weather outdoors and are hard to be tampered with. Bullet cameras can see large areas and many parking lots use PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) Bullet cameras so security can zoom in and move the cameras with a joystick to get the views they need. These cameras are often instrumental in finding licenses plate numbers for the authorities.
In Malls with elevators cameras will monitor the people coming and going and the actions that they are doing in the elevator. In most malls the biggest crime that takes place is often vandalism. Now with cameras in place these vandals will be caught.
