Protecting Pubs – Choosing the right mix of security


Pubs have such a great attraction for the ‘macho’ element in society to congregate within its walls its not difficult to guess that tempers will explode and fists start flying. It has also been solidly proven that in New South Wales alone, an estimated 85% of all armed robberies took place in pubs. It is the responsibility of pub owners to ensure the safety of its staff, patrons and property. One way of addressing the problem is by introducing a mixture of security strategies that includes CCTV cameras, virtual guards, monitored alarm and bottle tags that can be installed in the premise.

The most important security deterrent

The CCTV surveillance camera falls under this category and since it has come from people who have actually seen the changed results brought about by the system, there is no reason not to believe it. The cameras are simply marvellous and the footage they provide facilitates any follow up investigation needed. They are not overly costly and they provide excellent, clear video images of anyone captured by the camera lens including of course our dire enemies – the burglars. The rising popularity of the CCTV security cameras has resulted from the success it has enjoyed with users.

A very cheap system to operate

When the CCTV security system is integrated with virtual guard patrols, it becomes a less costly security system for the pubs. What actually transpires in this dual application is that guards are able to view real live video images captured and relayed by the cameras at their remote monitoring base. They accordingly mount patrols to respond to the level of urgency conveyed by the viewed footage and in doing so, they work in real time to monitor and conduct patrols to quell or pre-empt any anit-social event that develops in the pub.

The complementary monitored alarm system

One of the most amazing features of a monitored alarm system is it works perfectly in consort with a CCTV security system. This can be achieved with an established connection to a Back to Base monitoring alarm station. This functions in a similar fashion to the virtual monitoring centre that views security situations in the pubs that are connected to it. Similarly, the CCTV system alerts the guards at the Back to Base station who can respond very quickly to any incident.

Camera Invasion of the Market


I don’t know whether you’ve noticed the sheer volume of cameras that have flopped on the market lately, but that’s exactly what has happened. The latest CCTV surveillance cameras are so affordable, flexible and outstandingly effective, there’s no other way of describing the upsurge. They have literally invaded and swamped the market to such an extent it has been estimated that on average, a person is likely to have a picture taken of him or her about 15 times daily. And that’s no exaggeration given the array of gadgetry available and the love people have of getting their photos taken.

Not 100% but totally effective

The CCTV surveillance camera is one very reliable security camera system that has taken huge strides against the unwanted crime of burglary. The mere fact that these security cameras are able to monitor an area and take clear video shots of perpetrators, is in itself, a strong deterrent to the very act of committing burglaries. It will become a very daunting prospect for thieves once they realize that their clear video images can be used as evidence against them in any court of law. They are so versatile they can practically monitor any situation and provide security for people, employees and visitors.

Gone are the tapes

It is somewhat of a relief that you no longer have to spend countless hours playing a tape (without viewing the speaker), when ascertaining what had taken place. Because the CCTV security camera can be programmed to suit any situation, it is easy to select a certain footage simply by using the mouse to point at a certain date and time and the whole scene will be enacted on screen. The security cameras also feature high resolution video capable of capturing the minutest detail including the swift hand action of a pickpocket.

The future of the CCTV security camera

There is no doubting the capabilities of the CCTV security camera in helping entrepreneurs to safely operate their enterprises. To help boost their ongoing reliability and popularity there is now the integrated visual surveillance management technology that utilizes newly configured CCTV cameras that will have immense benefit to users. With it, businesses are able to obtain algorithm data from their cameras and use it to monitor customer behaviour and that will improve marketing decisions. The cameras can also be used to monitor employee movements for improving productivity and efficiency.
