Employee theft can be hard to prevent in many NY businesses, but it can be done.
The main point to keep in mind is that employees don’t steal when they know they are being watched.
As a business owner, you can’t expect to be everywhere all the time (even though everyone expects you to be).
This is where the right type of surveillance camera system will make a huge difference.
Imagine being able to look around you business from your office, when you are on the road or even while on vacation.
With the right security camera system in place, you can see exactly what is happening in your business from any internet connected device. This will help you prevent employee theft.
Many times, unscrupulous employees will throw perfectly good merchandise in the dumpster.
Then either they or an accomplice will pick the merchandise up after hours.
I bet you wondered how some people on eBay and Amazon could sell merchandise for so cheap.
With a free source of merchandise, it is all profit to them, but it hurts businesses tremendously.
To keep this from happening to you, you will need to have a surveillance camera that connects to a digital video recording device.
Make sure the camera you use is motion sensitive so that it will only record when motion is detected.
Now when you come in to your office you will know if someone was in the dumpster during or after hours.
Another thing you can watch out for is dumpster diving.
In NY, dumpster diving is big business.
Dumpster diving is when someone trespasses on to your property to search through your dumpsters for something of value.
This can lead to a golden opportunity for you.
It can make you aware of garbage that you throw out because you think it has no further value to you.
Remember that one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure.
You can capitalize on selling the merchandise yourself to the junk man, scrap yards or wherever your trash will fetch a good price.
This is just one of the ways that a surveillance system can not only pay for itself but also make you a profit.
As a NY business owner, you know that a penny saved is a penny earned.
Make the investment in a security camera system today with motion alert technology and remote monitoring.
You will be well on your way to a life of less stress and a protected business.
