By improving the quality of work processes, reducing costs, and reducing errors, continuous improvement allows your business to run more efficiently and be more cost-effective. You don’t waste resources in your daily production operations, and you shouldn’t when it comes to your security systems either. By thoroughly evaluating your existing system, identifying any deficiencies in that system, and developing a plan for incremental improvement, you can easily apply continuous improvement principles to your security camera system. Consider performing a security kaizen with these helpful tips!
The core principle of the continuous improvement process is reflecting on the processes your company utilizes. This means turning a critical eye to your current security system and identifying any issues. Do you have gaps in your coverage? Are you storing videos for long enough? Are any of your cameras or video storage devices faulty or outdated? Reflection provides you with a starting point for what issues need to be addressed and allows you to assign priority statuses to those issues.
Would additional security cameras allow your physical security to focus on areas that are of greater importance or reduce the area they have to travel during their shifts? Could you reduce costs allocated to physical security by better positioning or utilizing your security camera system? Answering these questions can help you ensure that your surveillance cameras are being used at peak efficiency for your business.
The purpose of the continuous improvement process is the identification, reduction, and elimination of suboptimal processes. Identifying weak points in your security system and addressing those weaknesses is an important step in security kaizen. You and your employees work hard to ensure that your business runs at peak productivity each day. Don’t let gaps in security put your hard work at risk.

Security cameras can also pull double duty by providing data to management that allows for the identification of areas for improvement.

You can also identify machinery that isn’t running at optimal speed or employees that aren’t following established procedures.
With continuous improvement process’ emphasis on continual, incremental steps forward rather than giant leaps, a strategic plan for your security camera system is vital. After reflecting on your potential weaknesses and studying the efficiency of your system (and how it can impact your overall efficiency), the next step in your strategy should be action.
