11 Best Security Cameras For Businesses

Small Business Security  |  Video Surveillance

Did you know that retailers lose about $50 billion every year due to theft? National chains can afford expensive security systems, but what about a small retail store?

Perhaps you don’t own a store, but you’d still like to have a security system to deter crime. While it might seem like “spying,” business security systems can help protect your bottom line.

The question then becomes: which system is best for you? We take a look at the best security cameras for business.

Best Security Cameras for Business

Finding the best commercial security cameras starts determining your needs. Ask yourself a few questions:

  • How much space do I have?
  • How scalable should the system be?
  • What capabilities do I need?
  • How sophisticated does the system need to be?
  • How many cameras do I need?
  • How will footage be recorded and stored?
