A top-tier security system is a smart investment for any business, as it can provide several unique layers of protection over your operations, employees and products.

Let’s look at some of the most important ways a security system can protect your business.

1) Theft Prevention and Detection

An alarm system can prevent theft because employees and customers who know you have strong security will be reluctant to steal from your store. At the same time, such a video surveillance system can help you catch burglars, shoplifters, and pilfering employees by recording what goes on and identifying suspects.

Moreover, the security camera system will help you catch theft immediately, even if you don’t spend much time at your business. This is important as estimates indicate that employee theft can go undetected for an average of two years. Additionally, shoplifters who discover you are an easy target are almost certain to return regularly, leading to long-term, ongoing losses for your business.

2) Damage Prevention and Limitation with a Security System

Fires or flooding can cause a lot of damage to your business, mainly if damage occurs when you’re not in town or the business is closed for the weekend or holiday season. A security system can monitor your premises when you’re not around and alert you and relevant authorities so the damage caused by a natural disaster will be limited.

At the same time, a system equipped with security cameras can either deter would-be vandals or record the damage they cause, enabling law enforcement officials to identify suspects and them.

3) Limiting Access to Restricted Areas

Estimates indicate that one out of three business bankruptcies can be attributed to employee theft. Access control is one good way to protect your business’ valuables, as employees would only be able to access designated areas directly about their job duties. If something goes missing, your access control system can provide a record of where employees were at the time.

4) Ensuring Employees are Safe and Following Best Practices

It’s important to ensure employees comply with company guidelines and best practices at all times. Mistakes can result in damaged products, sub-par service, or computer breaches that enable cybercriminals to gain access to valuable business and personal data. In serious instances, failure to adhere to company guidelines can result in injury or even death. A security system can help keep tabs on employees who aren’t under the direct supervision of a manager to ensure they are following company guidelines at all times.

More importantly, alarm-system detectors for smoke, fire, gas and other hazards will ensure that employees are promptly alerted to any dangers while they’re on the job. (And with alarm monitoring, the proper authorities will be swiftly dispatched by the monitoring center).

5) Protection from Lawsuits

Lawsuits are common and can put a tremendous financial strain on a company. Thankfully, security camera systems can prevent many such suits by exposing false accusations or instances involving a misunderstanding rather than malicious conduct. If a lawsuit is brought against your firm by an employee, former employee, customer, or business partner, security footage will clearly show if the suit has merit or not.
