Commercial Security Systems
Your business has important assets that need protection day and night. Whether you’re a small business or a booming corporation, commercial security system installation can give you the safety and assurance that you’re protecting your business assets, your computers, and all of your valuables.
In this day and age, there are types and features of security systems that may or may not be necessary for your business security needs. Here, we’ll discuss security system types and options so you can choose which features fit your business – and your budget.
Video surveillance systems let you see what’s happening in and outside of your business at all hours. That means that you can watch both your customers and your employees, and keep a record of their behavior if need be. The only video surveillance systems worth their salt these days are those that let you watch your business on your computer or mobile device, so you can check in whenever you like.
A do-it-yourself video surveillance camera and operating system can be found for cheap, but you want camera systems to fit your company’s infrastructure, not the other way around.. A company that will install and monitor your security on a per-month basis will cost more, but may be worth the investment.
Detection alarms are useful when you need to protect your business from vandals or burglars. There are lots of different detection alarm systems that can protect your business, including entry sensors and motion detectors. You don’t want to monitor your detection alarms all the time yourself, however. Instead, you’ll also need to hire a company that will set up your detection alarms and monitor your business 24-hours a day.
Monitoring costs usually change depending on the size of your business. If you have a small business, your monthly monitoring costs likely will be somewhere in the hundred-dollar range, while if you have a large office your monitoring costs could range into the thousands.
Electronic Access Control
Electronic access control systems only let certain individuals into particular rooms, so they’re useful if you want to block employee entry into certain office spaces. You’ll get the peace of mind knowing your company assets are only accessible to approved personnel and employees. Most often, electronic access control systems consist of keypad entry for one or more doors or a system that requires authorized individuals to use access cards to gain entry.
These card, keypad, and biometric systems don’t usually require monitoring, but a door usually costs at least $1,000 for a restricted-access keypad, with each door requiring additional fees for installation.
Bottom line: the business security company you choose should give you the right balance of up-to-date technology, affordability, and personalization.
