Retail stores, whether they are kiosks or supermarkets, have in fact been a classic field of surveillance camera applications. Theft is always carried out where the goods are available, and the record of these crimes has always been important in order to be able to convict the offender. The “manual way” is to use a detective from a department store and have access to the behavior. The quasi-automatic method is to use a video system for recording. By the way, they are often used in combination here: department store detectives usually also use appropriate video surveillance to extend their range. However, the recent mobile phone jammer devices on the market are really a headache, it can easily stop the camera monitoring.
In theory, catching up with pickpockets sounds easy. You put it behind the cash register and then empty it. What was obviously not stolen was stolen. However, under normal circumstances, there are significant differences between theory and practice. How do you plan to prove that the goods were not in the suspect’s pocket when they entered the store? The ambition of the police and investigating authorities to elaborate on this is directly proportional to the value of the stolen items. No one should expect that a stolen bottle of wine or a pair of sneakers will cause widespread investigation.
However, if the evidence is clear, the willingness to investigate smaller issues will definitely increase. Here, powerful video surveillance can make a decisive contribution. Ideally, the camera image seamlessly tracks the culprit from inserting the goods to crossing the checkout counter. If you bring the suspect and return the goods at the same time, this situation can also save you from embarrassment. If you can even give the videotape to the police in the future, because not only the real-time image is transmitted, but also the audio recording is provided, which will make the work of the investigative agency easier, but we should prevent criminals from using mobile cell phone jammer, so that our surveillance There is no effect, so we try to install the camera in a relatively hidden place, which will reduce a lot of our expenses.
Obtaining meaningful real-time images from surveillance cameras is not only helpful. No one can fully monitor the area of medium or large supermarkets. Too many “blind spots” are hard to see, so they are used exclusively by thieves to make items disappear. Offices in the back of a store are usually great for setting up a monitor with real-time switching images, or (for a better overview) setting up multiple monitors at the same time.
We can only urgently suggest that you provide a recording unit to save the video for evidence collection. It can be recorded on a network storage device (NAS), a separate video recorder, or locally on a computer equipped with appropriate software. Facts have proved that network storage devices or recorders that can withstand the continuous load of continuous recording are effective. If the police collect evidence at the door, the video data can usually be exported very quickly (for example, to a USB memory stick). As data protection regulations become stricter, it is recommended to delete records that are no longer needed regularly. For safety, we would like to point out a mandatory sign at the entrance of your store where the video is being recorded.
