As a business owner, your top priorities should be the security in your business to ensure you are secure, your property, and all those who are working for you. You also need to make sure anyone accessing it is safe. You have to do everything possible to defend your business against threats of intrusion and any other calamity like fire and anything else that can affect your business. 

Whether you are running a small business or a large one, security systems are not only for the mighty in the market but also for any operating business. If you are running a small enterprise, here is a list of available commercial security systems to cover small businesses.

Video Surveillance System

Video surveillance is a standard small business security staple that works in several ways to ensure better security for your business. Installing video surveillance and CCTV system is one of the best ways to keep your business under surveillance 24/7. The CCTV footage will give you a clear picture of what took place. 

When you install the surveillance system, intruders will shy away from your business because they know that it is easy to trace the happenings even when they visit your business premises at a time when there is no one in the office. CCTV and video camera installation are a good deterrent to any intruder.

If you run several offices in multiple locations, you can protect all of them using a centralized system. Installing surveillance cameras at each site ensures ultimate security on all the sites, and you can monitor all of them by viewing footage from your CCTV on your laptop or Smartphone. CCTV and video cameras will serve you in three different ways:

  • Provides 24/7 protection via the CCTV cameras
  • Providing evidence to prosecute the suspected offenders
  • Deterring criminals from attempting to vandalize your business premises
  • Providing a safe environment for both customers and staff

The best thing is that the system is customizable, and you can customize it to fit your business, whether small or big. All you need is to talk to the experts and get the right system fit to keep your business secure.

Intrusion Detection

Intrusion detection is an alarm that will go off when something strange happens at the business premises. It is the best way of alerting you of any possible problem so that you can apply the best solution before something goes wrong. For example, the alarm will warn you of any movement, broken glass, smoke, or heat at your business premises so that you can find a quick solution before it becomes a big problem.

Once you get the alarm, you can use the CCTV footage to know what was happening to take action as soon as possible. Even when you do not get the intruders there, you will have evidence of what transpired to prosecute the perpetrators. Also, the footage will help you in your insurance claim because it will be there as evidence of what happened.

Alarm Monitoring

Alarm monitoring is a system where you have someone readily available to act as soon as the alarm is triggered. It is one thing to have the alarm and another thing to act fast. The alarm will alert you of many things, not necessarily about people breaking into your business. It may be that your business is catching fire, and if you do not act fast, then the alarm will be of no use. That is why it is important to have a 24/7 alarm monitoring system if you are to be sure of the security of your business.

Also, installing environmental detection system will keep your business from environmental calamities like floods, smoke, and carbon dioxide. For example, the alarm system will warn you when there is a possible flood. With the proper alarm monitoring in place, you can save your business from great losses from floods and other environmental factors.

When the system detects any threat, it sends that alert to the central monitoring station and forwards it to the appropriate personnel. That will help you to take the necessary action to prevent possible property damage. If you do not take the right measures, you may end up experiencing costly damage and eventually downtime that will affect your business. Besides preventing property damage, you will also prevent possible injuries to your staff, customers, and even guests.

Access Control

You need to monitor who accesses different parts of your business and protects your business in different ways. Access control can limit customers from accessing areas they are not supposed to access and staff from accessing areas with sensitive information. 

Installing electronic locks with key cards or biometric scanners is the best way to prevent unauthorized entry. The best thing is to customize the system to fit your business needs and get alerts when unauthorized access to the building is detected.

Roller Doors

Installing electronic roller doors will help you keep unwanted visitors away from your business. The door opens electronically at a touch of a button. It is not accessible from the outside of your business and therefore provides total security to the business. Therefore, no intruders can access your business unless they have express authority. Also, roller doors provide security in that it keeps your business from privy eyes and only gives access to those you allow to enter the premises.

Security Cameras

It is important to work with an experienced New Jersey Security System Company to install your business security system. You also need to know whether the company you choose is conversant with different security systems. That is because you may need a combination of security systems depending on the size of your business and the different operations. 

For example, if you are handling sensitive information or you are involved in dealing it cash, you will need to beep up your security. Therefore, you will need to secure different sections using different security systems, including CCTV surveillance and video cameras, electronic access control, among others.

An experienced security installation company will help you in choosing different security systems that are necessary for different departments. They have the experience and will advise you on what to choose and when to choose it.
