Posted on: 8 July 2021

If you just purchased a new building for your business, you need to make sure you make it secure. This is important because the last thing you want to have happen is for someone to break in. There are many things you can do, two of which are listed below.

Use Commercial Video Surveillance

A commercial video surveillance system protects your business in many ways. For example, it will protect your business from someone breaking in, as well as protect your building from floods and fires.

There are different types of cameras that are used for this type of system. One type is known as an Internet protocol sytem, and another is analog.  Internet protocol cameras are digital cameras that work along with your IP network. The camera receives audio and video and sends the footage to the network, as well as to a television screen, tablet, smartphone, etc. The only thing you need with an Internet protocol camera is a computer network.   

Analog cameras are still being used, but Internet protocol cameras are becoming more and more popular. Analog cameras sends video that is captured to a DVR tape instead of to the computer network. The only record you will have is the actual DVR. 

You will find different features are available with this surveillance system. You can find cameras that have night vision and others that can move in a variety of directions. Some will monitor movement when someone gets into a certain range. Some cameras have alerts they send out 24/7. Some cameras are weatherproof, and others are not. 

Hire a security company in your area to help you choose the type of commercial video surveillance system. They can then install the system for you and show you how everything works.

Install a Security System

Along with commercial video surveillance, you should install a security system. Hire a company to install the system for you. Purchase one that connects with the security company. This way if an alarm goes off, the company will be notified immediately and can send the police, a firetruck, an ambulance, etc., to your place of business.

The security system can give you added protection because if someone tries to break into your building, an alarm will go off. The security company can install monitors at all entry and exit points, including on all doors and windows. 

Along with a security system, the company can install security lights. These lights will automatically come on when someone gets close to your building. These are known as motion lights. Often, when the lights come on, the intruder will leave.

These two tips should help you and your employees feel secure while you are working. Contact a company that offers commercial security surveillance services to learn more.
