Compared to residential buildings, commercial properties experience the most break-ins and cases of theft, because you know, that’s where the money is.
But do you really want to be worrying about such things when you could be working on getting more clients and impressing the existing ones?
I don’t think so.
Also, sometimes the threat is not just external, rather from the employees. For instance, those who try to access places that they are not allowed to.
What’s the solution?
Now, you may choose to install CCTVs to monitor every movement of outsiders getting in and your employees.
True, this is one of the effective ways to ensure you have control over what’s happening in your business. But CCTVs can only do as much as show you who did what but not actually prevent that person from doing it.
What if you found out there are other commercial security systems that hugely complement the CCTVs and go the extra mile to prevent trespassing and unauthorized access?
Well there is, and they include:
- Access Control Systems
Take these as the replacement of traditional keys. They can come in the form of a card with an access code or just a code without the card.
These allow employees to access physical rooms or systems of the company.
You can have the technicians program them in such a way that each card has a clearance level. This way, even the employees can only access the things and systems they are authorized to.
- Physical barriers
These are just basic features like locked doors and turnstiles. They prevent outsiders and sometimes employees from accessing rooms or areas in the business premises that they are not allowed to.
- Biometric Scanners
These are very advanced security systems and they come in different types and advancement levels.
They work by scanning human features like the face, the eye, the fingerprints among others. They use the information to determine if the scanned person is authorized to access the specific areas or not.
If they are, then access is granted but denied if the person is not authorized.
- Facility Alarm Systems
These are designed to go off if/when an individual accesses an area without following the right protocol or giving an access code
Other Commercial Security Systems To Consider
- Smart devices for advanced security systems
- Visitor Management System
- Intrusion Detection for burglary prevention
- Among others
With these systems installed on your building, you can rest assured your business will be safe from threats both within and outside.
