Top 7 Benefits of Commercial Security Systems in Your Business

In the United States, one in every seven businesses has an alarm system, which is specifically designed to give warnings to the owner of the business in cases of security issues.

However, it has been consistently proved that commercial security has a considerable number of benefits, some of which have been discussed below. 1.

However, a commercial security system such as an advanced alarm system will deter the thieves away even...

3 Places Retail Stores Should Install Security Cameras

Retail stores often have business plans in place to ensure their sales increase, their marketing efforts are successful, and their brand gains recognition. However, one important factor that should be included in every retail business plan is security. Theft is all too common at retail locations, but integrated alarm systems can help. So where exactly should security cameras be installed? Let's take a look at a few important places for cameras.   Doors and windows: Some of the first places that should get security cameras are doors and windows -- anywhere someone could enter or exit the building should be equipped with commercial camera solutions. This is especially true for larger buildings where managers may not be able to always have an eye on the doors. Having security cameras at entrances and exits can help store owners identify people who stole and deter people from stealing in the first place.   Warehouses and storage areas: Unfortunately,...

3 Advantages of Verified Business Alarms

Alarm systems can be found in one out of every seven businesses. However, the majority of these systems are equipped with a built-in delay before your monitoring company is contacted. The length of the delay can range from 30 seconds to as long as three minutes. Verified security systems have changed that, and Sonitrol describes three advantages of choosing verified alarm systems for your business. 1. False Alarm Reduction. Between 94% and 98% of all alarm triggers are false alarms. By offering two unique types of verified alarms (audio intrusion detection and live-monitored video), the number of false alarms is greatly reduced. Unlike conventional burglar detection systems, verified alarms are closely monitored by trained specialists. By carefully listening and watching, they're able to use this technology to distinguish between a false alarm and a burglary in progress at your business. 2. Valuable Footage of Events. Verified video systems provide video footage of events before and...

You Might Install Products Improperly Alarm systems, video surveillance, and other essential components of any office security system should be installed by the professionals.
