Protecting Your Business with a Commercial Security System

August 23rd, 2019

One of the best decisions you can make for your business is the decision to invest in a high-quality commercial security system. Not only does it provide your business with that security, but you are also offering your employees protection and safety as well. 

The Benefits of Commercial Security Systems

When people feel safe and secure in the workplace, they are more likely to be more productive. A commercial security system offers each employee peace of mind so that they can rather concentrate on the job they are there to do instead of worrying about their safety and potential dangers that may be lurking.

Another significant benefit to investing in a commercial security system comes in the way of insurance premium savings through your insurance company. They may lower your premiums because of the security system, which saves you money in the long run.

Your Security Needs

So, what are the specific security needs for your business? Each business is unique and has its own set of needs. Knowing this will help you determine which security options and features will be best for your business.

Many security companies offer video monitoring, access management, access barriers, and even fire detection. So, once you have analyzed what your business needs, you can choose any of these options or a combination of them to provide your business with the best protection.

Access Control

This is a good way to monitor who is coming and going. It allows you to issue access control cards to your employees, and these will be required to gain entry to the building or any other restricted areas they are authorized to enter. They simply swipe their access code to enter the building, and you will also have a record of the dates and times they arrived and departed.

If you terminate an employee, it is easy to disable their access cards, so they no longer have access to the building. It is much easier and safer than hoping that they return any keys they may have to the business.

Access Barriers

These include security doors, keypad entry points, swipe cards, and remote access. Each area of your building can utilize a different type of access barrier, depending on the employee's security level. It is a good way to protect any sensitive information there may be and can keep unauthorized individuals out.

Fire Detection

This is a commonly overlooked feature of some security systems. Fire poses a significant danger, so early detection is important to protecting your employees, your building, and your other assets.

Video Surveillance

This is one of the best ways to keep your business safe. Video surveillance for your commercial security system allows you to monitor your property, including the interior and exterior as well as surrounding buildings and restricted areas you may have.

If something does happen, you will have access to the stored video surveillance footage as well, which will provide you with the evidence you need. Ready to discuss your commercial security system options for your business?  Contact ECHO Technologies today for more information.
