Many times we are confident that our business is safe during business hours since we are clearly there to take care of it, and there is security around that can vouch for us, but what happens when we leave?
There are a couple of systems you can implement in your business if you want to make sure everything will be okay while you’re gone, and we’ve compiled them here for you to research and consider on your own. Are you ready?
This is a basic thing that any business should have, but we’re not talking about residential locks that have anti-bumping systems, but real security locks that are electric, respond to biological stimuli such as ocular, fingerprint or auditory identity confirmation, that are connected to other devices such as security alarms and cameras, and that cannot be easily breached or activate the other devices quickly.
These types of systems are easy to install and there are several that are accessible to any type of economic level if your business is just starting, but the important thing is that you have one and that it is fully functional.
What do you mean, you don’t have any external security? That’s too bad. Even with a deadbolt lock, you should have a system of bars that is secured with a padlock and can be removed the next morning by moving them up or sideways so you don’t have to experience a broken window or other inconvenience. Don’t negotiate the security of your business just because the “Neighborhood is safe”, prioritize what’s important and you will win.
If you have very large windows, you’ll want to invest in sturdy ones or ones with bars or window locks that prevent outsiders from gaining access even through the highest windows of your premises. Never underestimate the ingenuity of thieves, always be one step ahead of them.
Do you trust your staff, but want to implement a little more security on who enters and exits your business? With the installation of an access system you will be able to have the time and identification of each person who has passed through it, which is very useful to identify internal theft.
Do not trust, always doubt, always have alternatives that keep you safe not only you but the people who will work there with you. Remember that investing a little money could be the key to not losing your most precious investment: Your business. Always keep your feet on your head, and look for the best professional to implement any of these methods!
