Unfortunately, business owners sometimes fall into a false sense of security after they have a simple alarm system or camera set up in their building. While having this equipment installed is a great way to start protecting your business, you must continuously monitor your overall security to ensure that is effective.
Have you considered the effectiveness of your business security system lately? Use these questions to see if your system is up to par.
- Are each of the entrances to your business or building secure? – While you most likely have security measures in place for the main entrance to your building, are your other exits and entrances monitored? Be sure that they are secured with an access control system to allow employees in and out, as well as a monitored alarm and camera. An access control system will also help keep any unwanted visitors from gaining entry to your business.
- Are each of the security cameras in the right position? – Although simply having a security camera present is enough to deter some criminals, you need to ensure that all doors and windows are being monitored with recorded video. Also, have cameras installed indoors near break rooms or storage to keep employees and property safe. The best way to utilize your security cameras is with a professional video monitoring service and cloud video hosting. This will allow you to view your video feeds from anywhere using your wireless devices.
- Do you know what kind of crime is most prevalent in your area? – It is best to know what kind of crimes are committed the most in your area so that you can address them with your security system. For example, if breaking and entering is a common near you, you should let your security professionals know so that they can recommend the most effective systems for your situation.
