You do not have to be a big corporate company to invest in security. As much as you want your business to grow, security has to be in top of your checklist. Apart from keeping your assets safe, your employees and customers should also have a peace of mind while in your business premises.  Security is important and also saves you money. You can prevent an incident or security breach from taking place. Below are some of the aspects you should have in mind.

Make your security cameras visible

Unless there’s a specific activity you want to catch a person doing; don’t hide your security cameras. Most burglars consider the presence of security cameras when selecting a target and avoid businesses where they might be caught in the act. The presence of the CCTV cameras simply act as a deterrent. Initially, you may end up spending on the security cameras installation but the long term results outweighs the initial cost.

Secure more than your front door

We are aware that the place that has more traction in your business, is the front door. As you will be able to monitor those entering and leaving your company, however you should consider that crime can also take part inside the business premises.

You should also cover less obvious places on your business premises. Back doors are a common entry point for intruders, since they’re more likely to be left unlocked.

Motion Detection

We understand that it’s impossible to keep an eye on your security footages 24/7. However this can be simplified by investing in security cameras with motion detection. Some cameras allow you to set certain spaces in your camera’s field of view to monitor for motion. So, for example, you can get alerted when something comes to your door, but not when a bird flies through your yard.

Access control

Ensure that you have a plan and technology to provide secure access to the right people in the right areas of your buildings. This helps prevent unauthorized personnel from accessing your business premises. Moreover; just like you would test your smoke alarms in your home to make sure they are working when and how you need them, be sure to test your access control system too.

Invest in a security company offering surveillance monitoring solutions.

Companies like Opticom offer cost efficient security solutions for your business. By providing you with surveillance a system not only aids in monitoring theft, but increasing staff safety and confirming incidents. With the knowledge that they’re being protected, employees are more likely to feel safe. The surveillance system is also valuable for confirming incidents such as theft, work place violence, property damage and vandalism. This information is essential when suing for damages or reporting to law enforcement.
