When you think of surveillance systems as part of a business, hotels may not be the first establishments that come to mind. Even so, anyone who has ever stayed in a hotel has more than likely seen security cameras placed in hallways, doorways, recreational areas such as gyms and swimming pools, and at the front desk. In fact, you’ve probably seen security camera monitors that allow guests and staff alike to see what is going on at given moment in the hotel, right there at the front desk.
When guests check into a hotel, they want to know they can trust the staff to provide them with an overnight stay that is as comfortable and secure as their own homes. The more effort you put into proving your hotel’s safety to your guests, the more competitive you become and the more business you attract. Visible cameras are one of the easiest and least expensive ways to to earn trust, a positive reputation, and repeat business. Not only will a quality Security Camera System give your guests peace of mind, but they will keep them safe, as well.
Let’s face it. Crimes such as vandalism, theft, and assault are on the rise in cities all throughout the United States. Not only do visible security cameras make would-be criminals think twice about committing their crimes, but in the event that a crime does occur, footage from security cameras can help law enforcement agencies identify and track down a suspect and can even be used as evidence to eventually prosecute a suspect in court. Cameras placed around entrances and exits allow hotel staff and law enforcement to get a good look at every single hotel guest and any other people who are entering the building.
Safety and security aren’t the only ways surveillance systems can help keep your hotel running smoothly. Cameras placed behind the scenes, in areas such as storage rooms, supply closets, and maintenance areas, will allow you to keep an eye on your employees. Every manager would like to think they’ve hired the most trustworthy people to work for them, but sometimes someone is able to slide through the cracks and sometimes good people use bad judgment. In the event of an accident or any type of dispute, whether it’s an employee or guest, a security camera system may help determine what exactly happened and who is to blame.
