Try to take a three-fold approach to deter, detect, and delay, all with a security camera system from RuggedCams. 

Deterring criminals always starts with some good locks and solid entry points, but it also includes things like having plenty of alarm signs and stickers placed at access and cashpoints. Having an alarm system may not stop criminals from breaking in, but it does make them change their plans to a hurried “smash-and-grab” type of an operation because of the minimal time at the site with a blaring alarm going off. 

Make sure that there is two or more camera watching vulnerable areas or cash points from different angles. If a criminal knows that they will be recorded on one camera while attempting to disable or vandalize another, they will move on to an easier target. Hiding some cameras is ok, but you want to be sure that criminals notice the camera you want them to see. 

Detect them with motion lighting, alarms, and motion-based camera systems that can notify you if a particular door is open or even if the alarm is triggered. 

Delay them with hardened entry points and high-security locks. The longer they think it will take to breach your security and get out, the more they will be inclined to move on to another business that looks like an easier target. 

Here at RuggedCams, we can help with some of the how-to waylay the criminals. Our camera security system not only gets you an explicit video of what or who, but they have smart analytic. Some of these features include 2-way audio communication, motion detection, line crossing, face detection, camera tampering, scene change, camera tampering, and alarm notification. So as you can see, not only can you get video in our camera security systems, you can have an alarm system.
