If you're the owner of a small, local storefront here in the Pensacola area, it can be easy to think that the more intimate and personable nature of your business means you would have to worry less about theft, but sadly, this isn't the case.

As a business owner, it's important to stay vigilant and keep your business protected, and one of the best ways to do so is with video cameras installed inside and around your building. To highlight several of the reasons why installing new video cameras around your small business is a wise investment, our team of skilled security system installers have taken the time to put together this short list.

Watch Your Employees

While it might be difficult imagining your employees stealing from you, especially those who've been working with you for any length of time, things happen sometimes and people make bad decisions. By having security video cameras installed around your cash register, you can help to deter this theft from happening, or catch evidence of it to use as evidence.

Watch Your Customers Inside

Many would-be criminals actually like to target smaller mom-and-pop stores because they think they aren't likely to have cameras and it will be easier to get out the door with stolen merchandise. As a business owner, it's impossible for you to be everywhere at once, but with high-definition video cameras in place, you can always keep an eye on the various areas of your business.

Watch Your Customers Outside

While it's important to keep an eye on your customers while they're inside your store, it's also helpful to keep an eye on them outside as well. Having cameras covering the outside areas of your business can be useful for catching license plates of people running out of your business without paying, or those stealing merchandise located along the front of your business.

Watch Your Backroom & Vendors

While not all stores have a large backroom, most businesses still use these backroom areas to store overstock merchandise. No matter how big or small your backroom might be, this can be a popular spot for thieves to pocket merchandise, especially if you receive backdoor deliveries or vendors move merchandise to your backroom for storage.
