As a business owner, you want to make sure you are doing everything you can to keep your building safe and secure. Because you have a great deal of valuable equipment, supplies, computers and other items inside your company, you are understandably concerned that business theft can sometimes be an inside job. While you trust your team overall, The Atlantic notes that employee stealing is pretty common — everything from basic office supplies to purposefully breaking a smartphone, knowing the company will provide a new, fancier model. And according to recent news reports, thieves in your city have broken into a number of businesses after hours and made off with all sorts of items.
Fortunately, you do not have to be a victim of theft. There are a variety of innovative and state-of-the-art security technology devices that are ideal for your high-traffic business as well as your large warehouse. For example, consider the following options for 2020 and beyond.
HD Analog Security Cameras
One of the most effective ways to improve security technology in your business is with a high-tech HD Analog security camera system from Lorex. The video signal of an Analog MPX camera can go as far as 800 feet with just one run of RG59 cable; this means if you have a large amount of business property, you can rest assured that your HD Analog security camera system is monitoring a huge portion of, if not all of the outside area. In addition, you can program an HD Analog system to send you “push notifications,” so you will be alerted if motion is detected on your property. Depending on this size of your business, you can opt for a wired or wireless hybrid system; either way, this type of security camera will give you remote viewing and outstanding quality HD video.
HD IP Camera System
Another solid option for keeping your business more safe and secure is an HD IP security camera system. Digital IP HD cameras iare fully waterproof, so they can be mounted outside to monitor the perimeter of your company without any worries. HD IP security cameras come with a professional-grade network video recorder (NVR) that can store weeks or even months of high-definition video, which you can access at any time and if necessary, show it to the local police. This video can also be accessed remotely, so if you are taking a well-deserved vacation you can still keep tabs on what is happening at your company. HD IP cameras also feature long-range night vision. So if thieves are trying to figure out how to break through the fencing on the far perimeter of your property, the camera will capture their actions.
A Secure Fence With an Alarm
Speaking of fencing, if your business property does not have what is technically known as a physical security perimeter (PSP), now is the time to invest in one. As ISHN notes, entry points along the PSP should also include state of the art alarms to alert you when someone is trying to break in. Gates along the PSP should ideally feature a checkpoint where a security guard can ask people for proper ID to get into the property. The PSP can go all around your entire property, or focus mainly on the parking area and warehouse. If you store valuable machinery or other equipment on a back lot, the fencing should definitely surround this area as well.
High-Traffic Areas Can Become More Secure With Technology
You have invested too much money, time and energy into your business to watch it fall prey to thieves. By taking advantage of the security technology that is currently available and going with a solid combo of a PSP with an alarm, along with an innovative security camera system, you can rest assured that you are doing what you can to boost the safety and security of your business and all of its valuable contents.
