When people visit your church you want them to feel safe. The same goes for those who work and volunteer there. Sadly, churches have become something of a target for a few unfortunate individuals, since there are items of value to protect within your establishment. This is why it’s essential to have professionally installed and integrated church surveillance.
A church surveillance system is more than a system for detecting break-ins; although that’s a big part of what it does. A complete system includes:
- Internal and external cameras and a network video recorder
It’s important to review your surveillance needs and prioritize where attention is required. Then engage a professional surveillance systems installer/integrator to get the protection your staff, congregants, and buildings deserve.
HANDLING CHURCH SURVEILLANCE THREATS
Many churches are dealing with vandalism. Some have suffered repeated break-ins. Other problems include a lack of personal safety and surveillance on church grounds, as well as in the building itself.
Parking lots are a common concern; especially in winter when it gets dark earlier and stays dark longer. There is also the fear of an unstable/unpredictable visitor. You want your church to be a welcoming place of sanctuary, but have a plan in place to monitor the areas as needed.
Our cameras have the ability to check surveillance remotely via an App on your smartphone if there is a problem.
Surveillance cameras are a specialized part of building surveillance. Systems are available for inside and outside monitoring. A major benefit of church surveillance cameras is their deterrence value, so they should be placed where they are visible, but out of normal reach.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PROFESSIONAL CHURCH SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM INSTALLATION
Church surveillance cameras are especially challenging. These should be placed where they can’t be tampered with, yet have a good view. You’ll want to avoid blind spots, and choose weatherproof equipment for outside installation. Additionally, you may want to consider lighting that improves camera picture quality.
