Ensuring the security of your business is likely one of your top priorities, and for good reason. An effective security system can protect your building, your inventory, your employees and customers, and your bottom line.
As new technologies develop, more and more security systems arrive on the market promising to offer the best protection for your company. Here are our tips for weeding through the options to find the best security system for your business` needs.
How to Select a Security System For Your Business
Consider Your Risks
A key step in picking a security system is taking stock of what you`re trying to protect. Is loss of inventory from your large warehouse a concern? Does your business handle sensitive information, meaning a certain portion of your building needs extra security measures? Is vandalism prevalent in your area, necessitating extra outdoor precautions? Think of your business` unique needs, as these all must be addressed by your security system.
The type of security system you select depends on the layout of your building and the specifics of your environment. How many entrances does your business have, including service entrances? What is the lighting like around your building? Have you had break-ins or security issues in the past, and if so, where did these issues occur? Are there any environmental factors, such as exposure to the sun, rain, wind, and other elements, to consider? Be sure to factor all of these variables into your security system selection.
Consult Your Insurance Company
Some insurance companies issue requirements on what security system you can purchase. They may even reduce your insurance rates depending on what security system you choose. Speak with your insurance agent to see what specifications they have.
