You’ve invest­ed a sig­nif­i­cant amount of time and resources into your com­pa­ny, so it’s impor­tant to ensure your busi­ness has a lead­ing-class secu­ri­ty sys­tem in place around-the-clock to pro­tect your busi­ness assets. Most busi­ness own­ers don’t have a very com­pre­hen­sive expe­ri­ence select­ing from the lead­ing office secu­ri­ty sys­tems options and so with­in this post, we will pro­vide five tips for select­ing an office secu­ri­ty sys­tem that is just right for you.

  1. Choose a Sys­tem with Smart­phone Com­pat­i­bil­i­ty. It is impor­tant that the sys­tem you choose pro­vides you with direct infor­ma­tion via your smart­phone. The lead­ing office secu­ri­ty sys­tems now present busi­ness own­ers with a real-time stream via their smart­phones, as well as send­ing alerts when secu­ri­ty events occur. This can help ensure that you remain in con­trol of your busi­ness’ secu­ri­ty even when away from the office.
  2. Ensure the Sys­tem Mon­i­tors All Entrance Areas. The sys­tem you choose should have the capac­i­ty to mon­i­tor all areas of the prop­er­ty, par­tic­u­lar­ly entrance­ways. This will help ensure that a poten­tial secu­ri­ty breach is spot­ted before an event occurs. Mon­i­tor­ing entrances will also allow you to deter­mine whether lock-up pro­ce­dures are being fol­lowed accord­ing to com­pa­ny guide­lines.
  3. Con­sid­er Access Con­trol Care­ful­ly. With­in your office build­ing, you like­ly have sen­si­tive equip­ment in areas that must be pro­tect­ed. The secu­ri­ty sys­tem you choose should allow you to con­trol who has access to these areas. Access con­trol sys­tems can include card-scan­ning tech­nol­o­gy and video cam­eras to high­light activ­i­ty tak­ing place with­in iso­lat­ed areas of the office build­ing.
  4. Dis­cuss Main­te­nance Costs with Providers. Before agree­ing to the instal­la­tion of your sys­tem, dis­cuss all poten­tial sys­tems main­te­nance and repair costs with your provider. Some com­pa­nies charge a month­ly fee for man­ag­ing your sys­tem and for ensur­ing that emer­gency pro­fes­sion­als are avail­able should an event occur. Find out about all costs upfront to ensure you are not over­spend­ing on your secu­ri­ty bud­get.
  5. Make Sure the Sys­tem is Scal­able. Your secu­ri­ty sys­tem should be designed to be built upon over time. You might begin with cam­eras over entrance points, and then add options such as mobile alerts and night vision tech­nol­o­gy at a lat­er date. Ensure the sys­tem you choose can be upgrad­ed as your busi­ness needs change in the future.
