Every business owner strives to keep their employees, assets, and office space as safe as possible. We’ve worked years to build and maintain our businesses, and when you leave, you want to make sure that everything is protected from harm. There are several ways to help increase the security at your business; one of the most effective is to install a monitored security system.
Door and Window Contacts
Security Contacts are a simple, reliable form of security that can be installed quickly and easily. Security Contacts will sound an alarm when someone has opened any windows or doors while the system is activated. These contacts are installed on the connecting points of windows and doors – when they are touching, the alarm won’t go off, but when they are unexpectedly removed from each other, the alarm goes off.
Motion Sensors can be used to detect intruders, inside and out. You can connect them to lights on the outside of your building or to an alarm system so it will warn you when someone is lurking within the building. Special types of motion detectors are available for facilities with pets. Best of all, most of these motion sensors can be activated or deactivated at will – this means you can turn them off during the day, and arm them at night time before heading home.
Having access to your system from anywhere in the building is very important, and installing control panels throughout the site will allow you to access the system in multiple areas. Having the master panel in a place that is hard to reach for any intruder is important.
Most panels are installed with a two-way intercom that allows communication with the security company’s monitoring centre – this means that if your security measures activate, you can talk with a security specialist to explain the situation to them. This open communication provides you with the ability to get help fast, or explain to the security officer if the security system is engaged accidentally.
Most buildings have several areas on the outside and inside that are great hiding places for intruders. Installing cameras inside can lower the amount of hiding places an intruder will have to hide in, as well as deter customers and/or employees from theft or other inappropriate work behaviour. This is the ultimate form of security, and with integrated alarm and camera system monitoring services, you can rest assured that any suspicious activities or alarm signals are reported and dealt with quickly.
