Which Commercial Security System Features Are Best For My Business?

Which Commercial Security System Features Are Best For My Business?

Not all security systems are built the same. Different security companies will offer varying security features, and the solutions needed for your commercial space may require a combination of services. Commercial security systems can be customized to suit your business needs while also offering top-quality security features that are within your budget. To know which security system options are right for your business, consider all of the available features of security systems and their functions. Although you may not need the most advanced security system with every available feature, it is best to understand your security needs and possible solutions so you can make an informed decision when setting up a security system for your business.

Security System Features

Alarm Systems
All security systems will come with an alarm system. A basic security system set up will have an alarm that goes off when a door is opened and the security code is not entered within a set amount of time. Many security systems will automatically call the authorities if the alarm is signaled.

Glass Break Detection 
As a part of the alarm system, your security system should also come with glass-break detection. This way, if anyone tries to break in through a window or if they try to vandalize your building, you will automatically be notified.

Security Cameras
Security cameras are a vital part of commercial security systems. Cameras let you keep an eye on your business at all times and they can help prevent or catch thieves. Just seeing a security camera can be enough to deter some thieves or vandals, as they know they are likely to be caught. Some security companies also offer live video monitoring, so that a security professional is monitoring your property at all hours of the day. Not only does this alert you if anything suspicious is happening but some live video monitoring also comes with audio, so that if someone is approaching your business with malicious internet, the security professionals can tell them to leave, inform them that the police are on their way, or otherwise scare them off.

Environmental Monitoring
Not all threats to your business are external. There can be a variety of threats to the safety of your employees, your building, your company possessions, and more that all arise from accidents in the workplace. Environmental monitoring will alert you if there is a fire, a carbon monoxide leak, a burst pipe or flood, damage to the building (such as a caved in roof from a fallen tree), and other potential damages. Environmental monitoring offers many beneficial services that keep your business safe and running smoothly.

Access Control
This feature lets you manage who can enter which parts of your commercial business and when. Access control can offer different forms of access, including discretionary access, mandatory access, role-based access, and rule-based access. To learn more, read The Four Types Of Commercial Access Control. All of these forms of access allow you to place restrictions over exactly who is entering your building and when, while also allowing certain areas to be more restricted than others. Another benefit of access control is that you can see when anyone is going in and out of different areas in your commercial building since you can see when their access card was used.
