Security cameras for fast-food outlets, cafés and restaurants

You don’t often hear cappuccino and security camera in the same sentence, but when you run a business that serves some of the best coffee in town and you want to make sure you protect your business, your staff and your customers, they kind of go together!

CleverLoop provides security for small-business owners working across surprisingly wide variety of sectors. But food hospitality in particular has a lot of CleverLoop users, with restaurants, cafés and fast food joints all using CleverLoop video camera security systems to good effect.

This post is a quick look at one such place, Floyd’s Café (a favourite of some CleverLoop staff), which fitted a CleverLoop system to secure their business and staff.

Floyd’s wanted to enhance their existing security measures by using video security. As well as allowing the owners of the café to keep tabs on what’s happening during their occasional days off, they had a few other requirements in mind when they started looking for a video security system.

  • Protect cash registers – Keeping a close eye on cash transactions is really important for any business. Clear, high resolution video footage makes dealing with any missing cash, or disputes about the amount of change that is owed easy to resolve. You can make things even easier by making sure your staff get in the habit of making notes clearly visible to the cameras.
  • Record footage during the day that, if anything out of the ordinary takes place, you can look back through -When you work in the food hospitality industry strange things can happen on your premises. Getting stored CCTV video footage from the different areas of your site, both public and private, might not useful on a day to day basis, but does give you extra peace of mind.
  • Receive real-time alerts with video footage if someone enters the café after-hours – Alerts let you know whenever something important happens on your premises after you’ve closed up for the day, and let you see the details as well. No more costly false alarms call outs and you get full control of your own security.

Dane, one of the owners of Floyd’s said “Thanks CleverLoop, you’ve really added to the security of our café! It’s given us peace-of-mind knowing that if something unusual happens then we can check it out on video. Even better because there are no ongoing fees”
