Your business is as important to protect as your home. In addition to having inventory and office equipment, you may also deal in point-of-sale transactions, meaning you probably have cash on hand. But a security system is also important for protecting the safety and well-being of yourself and your employees.
When selecting a business security system that will be standing on guard for your business, here are the top things to consider:
- Remote Access. Smart security systems can link in a number of different things such as lighting, thermostat control, smart door locks, and the alarm itself. Being able to operate lights and lock or unlock doors remotely provides you and your employees added safety when entering the building in the morning and exiting at night. It also gives you the peace of mind to be able to double-check that everything is all sealed up for the night if you aren’t at the office to double-check it in person.
- Surveillance Cameras. External cameras that can provide high-definition video in both light and dark settings and are built to withstand all weather conditions. They can provide you with notifications if someone is lurking about that shouldn’t be there, and it can record their face and actions as evidence for the police. Internal surveillance can help record transactions between employees and customers. If an incident occurs, you can use the recorded footage to see what actually happened. You can also check cameras remotely to see if employees are becoming overwhelmed by customer traffic and need assistance from employees in different departments.
- Monitoring. Professional monitoring of your security systems provides you with 24/7 protection, 365 days a year. Monitoring can detect any smoke, fire, or water issues, as well as any break-in, and can immediately alert you and the proper authorities if something is wrong.
