"We got robbed just after we installed the Camera Security Now system. " Explains John Bower who owns 2 Dominos Pizza restaurants in Harrisburg, PA. “The picture was so good and getting it to the police was so easy, they caught the guy!"
"Making sure that people can see that there really are cameras in the restaurant is very important. Plus I have cameras pointing to every cash drawer. " said Emad Hamdan of who owns multiple restaurant franchises including Gold Star Chili.
Another recommendation is to use color security cameras instead of black and white for your typical fast food restaurant dining room and restaurant storage areas.
Using color cameras inside your restaurant is better because people will be more identifiable by the color of clothes they are wearing.
Color cameras, used in conjunction with the face shot at the entry point, provide you a record of people and activities in the key areas of your restaurant.
