Commercial businesses lose millions, if not billions, every year on break-ins, employee theft, inventory shrinkage, shoplifting, and property vandalism. Even if you have not yet experienced massive loss from one of the above, it’s bound to happen during your time in business. You can prevent huge monetary loss by installing a commercial security system in your business.
Commercial security systems can deter theft, catch thieves in the act, prevent vandalism, and help you solve issues related to inventory shrinkage.
They can also help you prove theft, prove vandalism, and help you in other situations where proof of misconduct is required to pursue legal action. There’s a lot of peace of mind to be obtained from using a commercial security system.
Below are some of the best benefits you’ll enjoy with a commercial security system:
Deterred Vandalism and Theft
Having a security system can deter those who wish to do your business harm. Having cameras in obvious spots, a security system sign outside, and a keypad to access the building after hours will deter break-ins, acts of vandalism, and theft inside the building from those visiting. If they know they’re being watched, they’re less likely to do something illegal.
Reduced Workplace Incidents
The security system isn’t just to keep people out, it’s to prevent incidents within. Cameras and other monitoring systems will help prevent vandalism, scuffles, fights, and employee theft by monitoring the building and offering you a body of evidence if you believe wrongdoing has occurred in your building.
Proof of Incidents
If you believe an employee or patron has been stealing or otherwise vandalizing your building, you can obtain proof with a security system. Security systems allow you to track movements, know when doors open and close, and can even offer video feed of incidents or movements leading up to incidents. You don’t have to blindly guess or accuse without proof again.
The cost of a commercial security system can be out-weighed by how much you’ll save in avoiding inventory shrink, theft, and cost of damages from vandalism. You’ll improve your bottom line by protecting your business.
Peace of Mind
One of the best all-around things a commercial security system can offer is peace of mind. You will have 24/7 monitoring of your business and instant alerts to incidents. You can go home, eat, sleep, and enjoy life outside of work, knowing your business and livelihood is protected round the clock.
What Is an Integrated System?
Integrated security is one of your options and a great one for businesses. It utilizes multiple components of a monitoring system (such as audio monitoring, cameras, pressure sensors, and others) to work in tandem to offer you a secure view of your business at all times.
How Much Does This Cost?
A commercial security system for a small to medium sized business can be as much as $2,500 when all is said and done. The more components you purchase, thee more expensive it will get. Prices vary depending on the type of system, so make sure to shop around and make sure you are getting exactly what you need.
