Business owners who want greater control over transactions that take place at cash registers may want to invest in additional security cameras in addition to the ones they currently have to conduct surveillance.

Business owners who want greater control over transactions that take place at cash registers may want to invest in additional security cameras in addition to the ones they currently have to conduct surveillance.

Unwanted cash loss can be the result of mischievous employees pocketing cash register money when they think the cameras aren’t looking. According to Camera Surveillance Now, one-third of U.S. corporate bankruptcies are employee theft-related, and it’s estimated that in the average U.S. company, 20 percent of every dollar is lost to employee theft.

Installing a point-of-sale security camera can help prevent unwanted loss from taking place. This additional pair of eyes can let owners view real-time transactions at their places of business, along with giving them the ability to watch items that are being purchased or ordered via a computer screen.

These POS security cameras have the capability to zoom in on receipt information, as well as every button on the register that the employee pushes and the dollar amounts of every bill taken out. This added layer of security can act as integral evidence later on if an employee suspected of theft denies the claim.
