Tips to Improve Your Commercial Security
No matter how big or small your business is, it’s important that you ensure that its security is your number one priority. With hundreds of burglary cases happening every day in America, more and more insurance companies are creating boundaries when it comes to business theft claims.
We understand the risk of having to put up your own business. Unfortunately, many insurance companies now do not cover small-time establishments. If you don’t want to experience a break-in on your business, it’s vital that you put up and improve your commercial security.
Here are some tips on how you can improve the security of your establishment:
Install Digital Video Surveillance
One of the many things that a business should have is digital video surveillance that is properly positioned to monitor all the footwork inside and outside of the establishment. As the business owner, you’ll not only monitor the performance of your staff, but you’ll also be able to use the recorded videos as evidence in case something happens inside your store.
Install Door Entry Systems and Intercoms
Another crucial element that a business owner should put inside their establishment is door entry systems and intercoms. Intercoms will allow you to directly contact the employee that you want to talk to without the hassle of going to their cubicle.
Door entry systems will also protect all the areas of your building with doors because it will require people to either have an ID, code, card, etc. to access certain areas of your establishment.
Having these two combined will put additional security to your business because people would be required to identify themselves before they can go in or out of your establishment.
Perform Threat Analysis
All businesses should perform threat analysis at least once or twice a year to check for any malfunctioning door systems or locks. This should include all the entry and exit points in your establishment, as well as all your windows, cash drawers, and cabinets holding valuable items.
Do Regular Maintenance
Make sure to also check your fire alarms, fire extinguishers, CCTVs, etc. if they are all positioned correctly and are in good condition. Also, it’s best to consider upgrading your commercial security system from time to time to ensure that you’re well ahead of innovative thieves.
