LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR COMMERCIAL SECURITY SOLUTIONS
commercial security services you need for your business
Whether you’ve recently opened a small business or been running a successful large-scale enterprise for some time, it makes sense to protect your investment. Too often, business owners may not consider the security of their commercial property until something goes wrong. Thinking about how to protect your assets and your employees now can save you time, expense, and heartache down the road.
Security for your business, however, can be very different from the kind of security your home requires. And every business is unique, with commercial security concerns that are related to industry specifics, site location, employee needs, and building configuration. With so much to consider, how do you determine which commercial security services your business needs? Let’s begin by understanding why security is vital for your business.
Why Invest in Commercial Security Services?
There are a few obvious and not so obvious reasons to secure your business property and assets. While the business location may be a motivating factor in your decision to consider a security system, there are many other reasons to invest in a comprehensive approach to security. All of the following considerations are a helpful way to think about the value your business will receive from investing in commercial security services.
Protect Your Property
It’s not just the equipment and money you lose in a break-in or the property damage your business may sustain. It’s also the things you can’t measure, like the time it takes to file insurance claims, waiting for replacements, and all the valuable work you may lose in the meantime.
Keep Insurance Costs Down
Having a security system for your business can mean more affordable insurance rates, especially if you choose services and systems that are professionally monitored and provide video surveillance. Video footage can also be an asset in the case of false insurance claims against your business.
Employees are your greatest asset, so protecting the people who work for you should be a priority. Securing your property means they’ll be able to go about their work safely, assured that they’ll have the help they need when an emergency arises.
Being able to check that your front door is secure from your smartphone may be something you’ve taken for granted at home, but it’s revolutionizing the security industry. In addition, the convenience of controlling access for employees remotely can be a lifesaver when you’re in a difficult situation.
Logically you know this, but it bears repeating. Criminals avoid businesses that have visible security. 60% of burglars say they specifically avoid targets with video surveillance. Commercial security services can also to help to deter employee theft.
Commercial vs. Residential Security
While commercial and residential security services have some things in common, there are also quite a few differences. Commercial properties can be quite extensive, with needs for both outdoor and indoor surveillance as well as multiple entry points. In addition to worrying about keeping the property and building secure, business owners also must consider employee safety, access, and surveillance.
Which Security Services Does My Business Need?
The kinds of services your business requires will be unique to your building or property, type and size of business, and the location. It’s likely you’ll need some combination of the following security services and protocols to keep your property, assets, inventory, and employees safe.
This control panel acts as the brain for your home security system, allowing you to disarm or arm your system with the touch of a button. We’ll choose a spot that makes sense, typically near your primary entry and close to a power source.
At a minimum, we’ll suggest placing sensors on all your major entries like the front or back door and the garage. For optimal security, we may advise placing sensors on every perimeter window or door at ground level
Being able to lock or unlock the door, get a live view of the property, or investigate an alarm via video are important resources for business owners that want to keep their commercial property secure.
Having a monitoring station on standby 24/7 to respond to alarms, review video, and to coordinate emergency response is a vital component of any business security solution
Fire Alarm Monitoring
Fire detection systems are tricky things to install, service, and maintain, so it makes sense to have a commercial security service work with local authorities to keep your property safe from fire, flood, and other disasters.
Having the ability to review video to verify an intruder, substantiate a claim, or investigate a tripped sensor can save the cost and embarrassment of having authorities respond to a false alarm.
