We all know how important security is to any business. The main reason for security is theft, thefts account for almost a 70% of revenue losses, and the considering the size of the business; it could result in a total shutdown of one’s business. To combat this now, people have started using surveillance cameras, these cameras are placed in planned locations, and they survey and record the footage. The footage is under observation by a security officer, and the culprits are often nabbed red-handed. What about thefts that take place at night. The answer to that are night security cameras.
What Are They?
Night security cameras or night vision cameras are cameras that can record even in absolute pitch darkness. These are infra-red cameras, and have in-built light enhancers that provide vision by capturing heat of the objects that are in front of the camera. The cameras are based on the latest LED technology, so they need very little power.
Invisible Security Guards
Night vision cameras are secretly placed in locations to capture video footage of the area. This footage is being constantly recorded, or if the store has a security guard, he too is given surveillance of the feed. The camera records in pitch darkness, so if the burglar is breaking, and entering from a blind spot, he will be captured on video.
Need for Night Security Cameras
Though, one may have CCTV cameras for the business store running in the day time, this will only give protection against thefts that take place during the day. At night, even if the CCTV’s are running burglaries can take place, unless you have a night guard.
Burglaries usually take place in pitch darkness, and more often than not many times, it is someone you know who is involved. Normal cameras can cover only a well-lit area, which means you have to keep the light running at night, which is again not feasible. Night vision cameras can be hidden away in small nooks and corners, and they can record in total darkness providing great vision.
Many times, cases have been left unsolved due to unsatisfactory footage. Either nothing is seen in the footage, or the video is too grainy because of the lack of light. Hence, these special cameras are required as they provide perfect vision and cameras. Having the proper footage will help in catching the thieves and more importantly, it will also help in claiming insurance, in case the goods stolen are not recovered.
The first features of these types cameras is the portability factor. Night vision cameras are bullet-shaped and small in size. They have can be placed in any place of your choice, which will make them impossible to see by the thief. But do not wait for the theft to take place for you to know which the right place to keep your camera is. Study your place, and keep the cameras at the best possible location.
Night vision cameras are the next step towards total and complete security against thefts.
