If you become the victim of malicious or criminal activities such as theft, burglary, or types of property destruction, you should never feel you are to blame. Any malicious or criminal behavior is the fault of the criminal.
What you can control, however, is how easy it is for a criminal to harm you and your business. The harder you make it, the harder it will be for you to find yourself or your business victimized.
Especially in the case of protecting your business, it is up to you to ensure that your work and livelihood don’t suffer disruption or loss. The best way to do that is by prevention and the best way to prevent malicious or criminal activities is by deterring criminals with a quality security system that is designed according to your business’ needs.
Regardless of your business’ size or sector, the following types of security systems are necessary to have in order to minimize risk of theft, burglary, and malicious behaviors. If you don’t have one of those types of security systems or you don’t have a security system at all consider acquiring them as they are considered essential for your safety and your business’ integrity.
1. Access Control
Access control systems have sensors and other hardware and software which allow you to control who can enter or leave the premises of your business. Depending on how detailed you need access control to be, you can have systems that automatically allow a preset list of employees to come and go or give you alerts so you can do it manually.
With Access control you can limit the access of your employees only to the rooms where they are authorized to be, have a log of their comings and goings, and keep people without authorization from even entering the premises.
2. Alarm System
Security alarm systems are connected to sensors and other hardware that alert you when there is a break-in attempt. These sensors can be anything from window and door detectors to motion and glass break detectors.
Depending on the needs of your business these systems can be very simple or very sophisticated and form the solid basis of your workplace’s security.
3. Video Surveillance (CCTV)
Video surveillance systems have cameras and other hardware and software designed to monitor and record all activity on your business’ premises.
Having cameras at your workplace works as a deterrent for crimes of opportunity such as burglary and theft. These systems also allow you to surveil activity on the business premises when customers are present in an unobtrusive way and provide necessary information for authorities in the event of malfeasance.
4. Fire alarm
Fire alarm systems can be manual or automatic. They usually are mandatory for businesses for safety purposes, and they have sensors that can detect smoke, flame, or even harmful gases. Some alarm systems also have a fire extinguishing system installed and others simply alert the authorities and the owner for fires and other hazards.
5. Remote monitoring
Remote monitoring systems are essential in order to make any security system even more secure: they allow the owner to monitor via phone or computer. Also, they can be connected to professional remote control centers that monitor the premises around the clock. Such monitoring is essential to ensure immediate response to any alarm and the maximum level of prevention. Special AI programs are also equipped to send notifications preemptively when unusual activity is taking place, making prevention more efficient.
6. Redundant power system backups
This system is what ensures that your high-tech, reliable security system remains so even in the event of a power failure. That way even when power is cut to your security system (either intentionally or by accident) it will remain operational.
No matter how elaborate or lean you choose your security system to be, make sure you have one professionally installed at your business’ premises. Consult Krypto professionals to ensure that all your business’ needs are met so you can continue working with peace of mind and real security at all times.
