5 Reasons To Install CCTV In Your Coach Fleet

If you’re thinking about installing CCTV cameras on your buses or coaches, you may be wondering what benefits they could bring. In this blog post, we explore five key reasons why you should install CCTV cameras in your fleet. From reducing fraudulent insurance claims to catching vandals in the act, CCTV cameras can be a valuable addition to any bus or coach company. Read on to find out more.

Security For Your Fleet

According to one study, crime decreased by 13% in places with CCTV, compared to places without it.

When it comes to your business, security is of the utmost importance. The last thing you want is for your livelihood – and that of your employees – to be put at risk because of a break-in or vandalism.

That’s where CCTV comes in. Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is a security measure that can be used to monitor and record activity across your vehicles. 

CCTV can be used both internally and externally and can be an effective deterrent against crime. Here are five reasons why you should consider installing CCTV in your coach fleet:

1. Deterrent to crime

CCTV can be a powerful deterrent to crime. If your coach fleet is targeted by criminals, they may think twice if they know their actions are being watched and recorded. This can help to deter opportunistic crimes such as theft and vandalism, as well as more serious offences.

Installing CCTV can also act as a deterrent to would-be criminals by making it clear that your coaches are not an easy target. This can help to create a ‘safe’ environment for both your passengers and you


2. Helps with investigations

If you're looking to step up your investigation game, then installing CCTV in your coach fleet is a great way to do it. Not only will you be able to keep an eye on your coaches at all times, but you'll also be able to review footage if something does happen. If a criminal is unaware of CCTV and proceeds with the plan to steal money or valuables from their fellow passengers, they will likely be identified and eventually caught by authorities. This can be invaluable in helping you to get to the bottom of any issues that may occur.


3. Live monitoring

If you're not already monitoring your coach fleet via CCTV, you're missing out on a range of benefits. Live monitoring allows you to see what's happening in real-time, so you can respond immediately to any incidents. It also provides a permanent record of events, which can be used for investigations and insurance claims. 


4. Automated alerts

CCTV surveillance systems can be programmed to send out automated alerts in the event of an incident. This means that you and your team can be notified as soon as something happens, allowing you to take action quickly. Automated alerts can also help to deter potential criminals, as they know that their activities are being monitored.

5. Encouraging Safe Driving

CCTV can also help to keep people safe. For example, if you have a fleet of coaches, you can use CCTV to monitor driver behaviour and make sure that they are adhering to safety regulations. 

There are many signals which can be tracked by the control room in case there is an emergency. Rash driving can occur on highways, and this is partly because inexperienced and reckless drivers assume they won't be held accountable. However, with a live surveillance system in a vehicle, drivers will know that any trespass will be recorded and can lead to their punishment or even dismissal.

There are sensors and video footage in place to monitor your driving. They pick up mistakes like speeding, being distracted on the road, and driving too aggressively.
