Securing Hospitality: Why You Should Consider CCTV for Your Venue

24 January 2024

Securing Hospitality by A Plus Security

In the dynamic world of the hospitality industry, where experiences unfold and memories are made, ensuring the safety of all staff and guests is non-negotiable.

Consider elevating your venue's security with a CCTV system for the following reasons:


As a venue owner or manager of a restaurant, hotel or bar, you’ll already know that it’s impossible to be everywhere all at once. CCTV cameras, when strategically placed across entrances, exits, common areas, and behind-the-scenes spaces, put a watchful eye in every corner, 24/7, allowing you to get on with the day-to-day running of your business.


The presence alone of a CCTV camera sends a clear and powerful message – a commitment to security and a proactive stance against crime and other undesirable activities. It acts as a visual deterrent, discouraging potential troublemakers and helping all staff and guests feel secure.


In the unfortunate event of an incident, having a detailed record of occurrences is invaluable for investigations. CCTV footage serves as an objective witness, offering an accurate account of events. This transparency is crucial in resolving disputes, providing evidence for legal proceedings, and aiding law enforcement.


CCTV isn't just about recording events, it's about real-time incident prevention. With advanced analytics and monitoring capabilities, suspicious activities can be identified promptly, sending alarms for immediate intervention. Whether managing unruly behaviour, preventing theft or addressing potential safety hazards, CCTV facilitates a rapid response.


In an industry where reputation is paramount, the perception of safety is a key component of a positive guest experience. CCTV contributes to this sense of security and the venue's reputation as a safe and trustworthy establishment.


CCTV in hospitality venues isn't just about security, it's a tool that enhances operational efficiency. From monitoring crowd flow during events to managing staff based on real-time observations, this dual functionality makes CCTV an integral part of venue management, contributing to both security and overall operational success.

What our
clients have to
say about us

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth. Apart from that, the fact we never had to chase them for anything was a very nice surprise!

International Group of Schools

We chose A-Plus Security to carry out the upgrade of our electronic security systems for our 9 colleges and they have far exceeded our expectations in their approach to the projects. We are a UK wide organisation where the planning and mobilising of these major project around term times is time critical and A Plus Security have been nothing short of fantastic in the communication, there design proposals, openness to last minute changes, pre and post-sales support and their management of 3rd party companies and IT services. We would highly recommend A Plus Security to any organisation who are looking to install or upgrade their systems.

Nationwide Groups of Colleges

A Plus Security exceeded all expectations, following a late award of the contract due to a different contractor pulling out. All fire and security works were completed when requested and signed off on finish, with no issues noted. We have continued working with A Plus on following projects and would fully recommend them.
