Are You Neglecting Security At Your Business Premises?

Even if your business is only small or medium sized, and you believe that you don’t need to increase the security at your premises, there are many reasons why you may be wrong. Catching would be criminals, preventing fire damage and having more control over who enters your business premises, can only be achieved with a functioning and efficient security system, or indeed, several, and here are just a few reasons why neglecting security could prove bad for you and your business:

 

Without video surveillance, you may not be as efficient:

Business security camera systems help you to keep a close eye on the comings and goings at your premises and make identifying those who may not be working efficiently enough, that much easier. Being able to see exactly who is entering your business premises every day can, of course, help alert you to intruders, but the long-term benefits of such surveillance may be far wider reaching and could help your company do better.

Security systems can help prevent theft:

It’s simple when you think about it; the better a business’s security systems, the less appealing it will be to criminals and thieves. No criminal, no matter how desperate they may be, will want to risk being caught on camera or risk alerting the authorities to a break in by triggering an alarm. Even if they could get past your exterior security system, breaking and entering should be virtually impossible if you’ve ensured that your entrances and exits are securely fastened with top of the range locks.

A good security system should be just as powerful a deterrent for employee theft, too.

Fire damage could be much worse without an alarm system:

As terrifying as it may be, a fire can arise from anywhere within a building, with the causes ranging from faulty wiring to human error. Aside from some items at risk of being destroyed in a fire, even those that have merely been surrounded by the fire and not engulfed by it, will likely need to be replaced, as smoke damage is notoriously difficult to remove. In fact, the damage caused by a workplace fire can be devastating for the company involved – with or without commercial business insurance – making it even more essential to try and prevent a fire from occurring or spreading, in the first place. A good fire protection system is vital for any business and neglecting this element of security is extremely unwise.

If you can’t remotely protect your business, who will?

Modern security systems enable you to see what’s happening at your business 24 hours a day, and from wherever you happen to be. If a security system has triggered an alarm and you’re alerted to a potential threat or hazard, then you can quickly manipulate intrusion alarm systems for windows, loading doors and emergency exits, giving you the ultimate protection from every possible angle.

If your business means anything to you, you should ensure that it’s adequately protected round the clock, whether the premises are occupied, or not. The cost of having a security system installed is nothing compared to the costs you may incur in the event of a hazardous event, natural disaster or burglary, that you failed to spot or prevent.

If you suspect that security at your business premises is not quite up to scratch, then why not contact your local security retailers to see how it can be improved before it’s too late.
