Because of your rigorous planning and plenty of hard work, your business is doing great. But like any proud owner, you want it to get better. Adding a security system can bring all kinds of perks to your enterprise for you, your employees and your customers.
Relying on a security system typically involves installing cameras that are visible in the private and public spaces of your enterprise. These devices automatically make your business look professional by signaling to visitors that you’re in it for the long haul and that the safety of people ranks as a top concern.
One perk of a visible security system is prevention. Thieves who spot your cameras are less likely to steal because they know that their actions are being recorded, increasing the chances that they’ll be caught. Employees come to the same realization, making them less likely to steal from you.
Many insurance companies will discount your premiums when they know that you protect your business with a system. They appreciate that you’re less likely to file claims because you become less of a target for crime. If someone does throw a false claim at you, such as a customer who pretends to fall and get hurt on your premises, you can simply show a recording to reveal what really happened.
The more obvious perks of having a security system are what they do in practice.
You can define programs that set up specific entry points, such as to the warehouse or back office, that only certain people access by swiping a card or keying in a passcode. Security cameras can show you what’s happening both inside your business and outside in the parking lot, keeping employees, suppliers, and customers from harm.
Even if you’re not at your enterprise, many systems can send you an alert via smartphone or email. You can also check your cameras and entry records by remote using your smartphone or a secure website. If an incident does occur, systems can also alert first-responders or security agents automatically. They can send help immediately even if you cannot respond, such as if you’re unconscious or incapacitated.
A professional response team like Boyd & Associates not only installs the state-of-the-art security hardware but offers 24-hour/7-day/all-year monitoring of both small offices or multi-building facilities. We can analyze your location, identify weaknesses, and recommend fixes. We also provide trained security officers that can deliver the visibility and interaction that only people can. Only a person, either by remote or on-site, can accurately distinguish between a minor incident, such as a stray dog triggering an alarm, or a security issue, such as a burglary, and react accordingly.
