We asked one of our clients to provide some insight into what he saw as the main reasons for having a high quality CCTV system in place. So in the words of our customer...
I have been an Operations & Security Manager for a little over 8 years in a Municipal Art Gallery in Dublin. I use our CCTV system everyday so I have a clear understanding of the many advantages of CCTV Systems. First of course is the fact that you can review what happened during a break-in, but that is very obvious.
Here is the sad fact, there are many more falls and trips than break-ins. For instance members of the public have come to gallery events with a few glasses of wine consumed before arriving at the reception. They don’t see the large sculptural artworks on the floor, even with a security guard standing in front of the artwork. And crash! Were you there to witness it? Of course not, you were busy sorting out a person stuck in the lift.
You cannot have eyes everywhere and even the best, most diligent security guard will not remember all the details. Was the member of the public wearing appropriate footwear or was there any evidence that they were not fully sober? Well, thankfully, in the cold light of the morning I can walk into my security office and use my CCTV System and carefully review a number of different camera views that don’t exaggerate or lie. Then I take one of my blank CD-RWs and burn a copy. A quick incident report and if a solicitor’s letter comes in the post, I am all ready.
Next fact, others are going to need your footage. The local Gardaí ask me for footage at least twice a month, because some of our cameras look out onto the street. Everything from bag snatchers, to bicycle thieves or even car crashes all caught on my CCTV. And on the very few occasions when one CCTV camera was down, it was like losing a limb. The amount of requests for that footage was huge. I have found that by helping others (with the proper authorisation) that when I need help it is always close at hand.
So make sure you have great CCTV Systems in your Dublin Business. Try to get HD CCTV, it makes a world of difference the crystal clear images for playback. Also invest in a great playback system. I can’t stress how crucial great CCTV Systems are for protection against fraudulent claims and capturing opportunists. Ireland is quickly becoming like the USA and UK with insurance claims, and I speak from bitter experience. There have been a few solicitor letters in the post, but thankfully I had kept the CCTV footage. So get in the habit of making use of the tools at your disposal.

“We moved our security requirements (CCTV, Fire & Intruder alarms and Key Holding) to RFC about 4 years ago. The service is excellent. We never have to contact them to schedule regular maintenance calls, the engineers just arrive when they are supposed to. Their Emergency and after-hours service is good. You are never left waiting too long if your alarm won’t set for any reason. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
“Abbey Court Hotel have being using RFC Fire and Security Services for over three years and have found them at all times professional in their dealings and also a rapid response for problems. Having used some of the larger recognised companies in the past I found using an Irish company with accreditation gave us a more personalised professional service.”
“RFC Fire and Security Services provided a competitive quotation to replace 16 analogue cameras with new HD Cameras. A comprehensive site inspection was carried out prior to quotation to ensure compatibility. Engineering staff that carried out the installation works were professional, efficient, polite and courteous. RFC Fire and Security Services have delivered a high quality state of the art CCTV system that will see us into the future.”
“On the 22nd/23rd Oct last at 3.30am I received a phone call. It was the alarm company. Intruder alarm has been triggered. Gardai have been alerted and will meet with your key holder. In years gone by that key holder was me. I had to drag myself out of bed, get dressed and go to work in the middle of the night and hope the Gardai were still there. If not, I always felt very vulnerable while I waited for them. I never risked entering the premises on my own. When everything was checked, I’d have to return home, often with the premises left with no alarm because of damage. Then get up the following morning as usual and face a day of tidying, dealing with contractors and insurers etc. etc. This time my key holder was provided by the security company. He met the Gardai, let them gain access, check that the intruders had fled and then stayed on guard outside until I showed up for work. An essential service provided by RFC and worth every penny. Security is peace of mind.”
