First type of crime when people associate retail shop with is theft. Shoplifting cases may have decreased in recent years but at a security stand point, it is best to avoid and have zero cases to deal with. Aside from theft crimes, there are also reported cases of outrage of modesty such as sexual harassment and unconsented photo / video taking (sneak pics) in changing rooms or disputes gone wrong.
Installing surveillance security system in your retail shop deters crimes of theft and provide evidence at the event any crimes were to take place. Crime actions aside, having security cameras integrated with video analytics is able to help you gain business intelligence such as monitoring customer behaviour by tracking their movements and how long they stay at a specific place. There is also a preference for you to understand the productivity of employees such as cashier, salesman, saleswoman while they are in the store attending to customers or even watch if they decide to sneak a few products home.
