Why You Need a Commercial Security System
Regardless of what type of service or business you are, if you have valuable products, a well-rounded security system is essential. Although burglaries happen more often in residential homes, the value of stolen items is much higher in businesses. Your business’ assets are not just products and equipment, they are also your customers’ information and your confidential documents. Intrusion prevention systems monitor networks and systems for malicious activity. Here are some of the major benefits of installing a commercial security system for intrusion security.
Vandalism can easily cost your business thousands of dollars. Additionally, with acts of vandalism, it is more difficult to identify the culprit because of how quickly the crime occurs. A security system that includes surveillance cameras, alarms, and 24/7 monitoring can help scare off vandals and help authorities identify these vandals afterward. You will be able to catch anything that happens on camera and can turn the footage in for evidence. These alarms provide the latest intrusion security equipped to secure your facilities and protect your buildings’ integrity.
Shoplifting and Employee Theft
According to Alarm.org, 38% of inventory shrink can be attributed to shoplifting, and 34.5% to employee theft. As much as you would like to trust your employees, your business cannot always take that risk. Employee theft typically goes undetected for longer periods of time. This loss can be devastating for some businesses. Shoplifting is the number one reason for the loss in revenue. A high-quality surveillance system can help decrease shoplifting with your business. Additionally, these cameras can help detect people from unauthorized access. Many businesses have specific areas where only some people have access, such as an area that houses dangerous equipment or files with sensitive information. With a security system, you can ensure no one is going where they are not supposed to.
The last benefit is one that may not be thought of as often. Commercial security systems can come in handy if your business is faced with a lawsuit. For example, a customer or employee may make a false accusation about your business regarding things like treatment, products, or the store itself. You can prevent false accusations and claims against the business and its staff by being able to provide evidence to dispute these claims.
