5 Tips for Business Security Systems
Your business deserves the best possible protection, with guaranteed installation and service and industry-leading customer satisfaction. Here are 5 things your commercial alarm system needs to ensure your commercial assets stay safe, sound, and secure.
1. Security Camera Systems
The first thing people tend to think of when they envision business security systems are CCTV surveillance systems, but few know their true potential – there’s a lot more to it than a grainy black-and-white video feed.
A full security camera system should include low-light or infrared imaging and cover the whole premises in addition to the inside of your office or retail space. Blind spots, interference from light or EM sources, or improperly focused lenses are all things you should consider when having your cameras installed.
2. Access Control Systems
Access control systems include everything from intercoms and door buzzers to biometric fingerprint scanners, keypads, electronic card readers – anything that lets you manage the entry points of your business.
Your access control systems should match the kind of business you run. An apartment complex might not need anything more than a card reader or PIN pad, while a business managing sensitive data should use two-factor authentication and biometrics to restrict access.
3. Alarm Systems
We’ve covered the day-to-day security needs of your business, but we haven’t considered how your business will be protected against the unexpected. For that, you’ll need an alarm system.
To protect your business from unforeseen emergencies like fires, floods, or other damages as well as forced entry or attempted criminal activity, an alarm system is your first real line of defense. With a properly configured suite of sensors and redundant backups to the connection and power supply, you know your most precious assets are never left unguarded.
4. Proper Planning and Installation
All these security features are meaningless if they’re improperly implemented. Investing in a state-of-the-art security camera system only to find out something was misaligned or you didn’t get enough cameras to cover all the entry points would be an embarrassing waste of time and money.
