An incomplete security system is a bit like working on a puzzle with missing pieces. There are essential features that should be included in a comprehensive security system. Maybe you already have a security system installed at your business, but is it monitored? What good is a security system if no one, except those in the area, is alerted when the alarm goes off? Having a 24/7 monitoring service as part of your security system is crucial for the quickest response times. Surveillance equipment can also help deter employee theft which is, “the fastest growing crime in America,” according to the FBI. Employee theft costs businesses up to $200 billion each year. Installing surveillance equipment not only in the main customer space, but in offices, storage, and inventory spaces can help decrease chances of employee theft and misconduct.
Other areas that tend to be overlooked or under-protected are doors and safes. While a door typically locks, if it’s not sturdy and linked to an alarm, what’s preventing someone from kicking it in? To protect your entries, exits, and interior spaces be sure that your doors are not only sturdy and alarmed but protected by some sort of access control. Whether it’s a swipe card, key fob, passcode, or some form of biometrics, access control will help prevent unwanted entrants. Safes that are out in the open and easy to grab or crack open provide minimal protection for whatever is in it. If you’re going to store valuables or cash in a safe at your business be sure it’s secure either bolted to the ground or in a fortified room.
Inadequate protection from fire and carbon monoxide can be a killer for any business. Having detectors and alarms may not be enough if they don’t communicate with emergency services. It’s the same idea as the unmonitored burglar alarm, if no one is around to hear the detectors go off a fire could easily escalate to the point of no return. For the quickest response time, fire alarms and detectors should be linked to a monitoring service that communicates with emergency services. Proper fire alarms, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors should be an integral part of a comprehensive security system. Your business is likely your livelihood, protect it.
There are few certainties in life, but taking initiative to protect what you’ve built by installing a comprehensive security system is guaranteed to help. No two businesses are the same, therefore no two security systems will be the same.
