Security Camera Basics in Healthcare Spaces: What You Need To Know

Protecting your healthcare space is essential if you want your business to run smoothly and successfully. You hopefully already have an alarm system installed, but have you considered security cameras?

There are certain things you should know about security cameras before installing them, including how they should be placed, where they should be placed, and where the information gathered goes. This guide will help you get started securing your facility to an even greater extent with watchful cameras.

Indoor or Outdoor?

If you have a storefront or people enter your building from the outside, security cameras will help you make sure that no one comes in who shouldn’t be. You can monitor every face when they ring the doorbell and never have to wonder who is going to walk through your door.

But even if you are in a larger facility or office condo, security cameras at your indoor entrances can double your peace of mind. You don’t know who is visiting other spaces in the building, so cameras will again make sure no one is entering your healthcare space without authorization.

How Should you Place your Cameras?

When it comes to security cameras, the most critical feature of visitors that you want to capture is their face. Having multiple cameras at the entrance to your healthcare facility means you don’t have to worry that you’re only seeing someone’s back.

What to do with your Information?

Security cameras can have multiple options for where the information goes. If you have full-time security staff, you may have someone responsible for monitoring the camera, and you might not want to record everything your camera sees.

On the other hand, if you’re worried about theft or other security concerns, retaining the information captured will help you identify and find culprits.
