One of the most important factors in having a successful business is having the right security. Technology for building security systems moves so quickly these days that there are even more options when it comes to security and alarm systems for commercial buildings than there were a few years ago.
Seven Security Options to Keep Your Business Safe
Instead of just our top five security systems for 2019, we've compiled a list of the top seven security systems for 2019 you should consider.
1. Outdoor Security Cameras
It all starts with reliable outdoor security cameras. Often, the mere presence of visible outdoor security cameras can deter potential intruders, as they can see right away they are being watched. Make sure your security cameras include High Definition video, cloud storage and optimally, a connection to a 24-hour monitoring station, so you and the authorities can act fast should a break-in attempt occur.
2. Indoor Security Cameras
Unfortunately, criminal activity in your business doesn’t always limit itself to strangers or unauthorized intruders. If you operate a retail establishment, it is especially essential for you to know what is going on inside your building. Reliable indoor security cameras similar to the ones you have mounted outside can serve as a deterrent, as well as help you quickly and accurately identify those in your facility who are misbehaving.
3. Access Control
Access control systems allow you to have a much better grasp over who can and cannot get into various areas of your business at any given time. Many companies are moving toward a biometric model, where entry is keyed to an element that cannot be lost or copied like an employee’s fingerprint or retinal pattern. You can control exactly which individuals can enter which areas at which times and always know who has entered a particular area and when.
4. Intrusion Alarms
Intrusion alarms are among the most basic of commercial building security options, but they can still also be among the most effective. These small-business alarm systems monitor your building and in the case of unauthorized access, set off a loud alarm and alert local authorities. Simple, but an extremely effective deterrent to intruders.
5. Motion Sensors
For areas where a traditional burglar alarm is not practical, motion sensors can quickly and effectively alert you and the authorities when someone is present in a place or at a time in your facility when they should not be.
6. App Controlled Indoor Drones
A new security measure — and one that is quickly growing in popularity — small, camera-enabled drones you control yourself through a simple wireless app are another simple and effective way to keep your eyes on those in your building.
7. Outdoor Security Robots
There's no need for the expense of a human, fallible security guard when you can purchase one or more outdoor security robots to patrol your facility at the locations of your choice. These bots provide 360-degree views and real-time tracking to deter or alert you to any unwanted activity around your facility.
