5 Security Features to Consider for Your Business

Security for your business is not the same as what you install at home. Your North Carolina business needs to be secure not just from outside intruders at night, but at different times during the day, or from different people. Secur-Tek, Inc. can design a security system customized for your needs, with both wired and wireless options available.

Here are five features to consider to keep your business secure:

  1. Limit Access – You might want to limit access to a certain area, such as a supply room. Security systems can be set up to partition an area without affecting other areas.
  2. Front Door Access – You can limit access to the entire building. Some businesses do not have customers coming in and out and therefore can have extra security with badge-only access to gain entry. Your employees will also feel safer knowing that they are protected from uninvited characters.
  3. Access Tracking – Want to know who is accessing those areas and at what times? Set up opening/closing reports. These reports can include who arms and disarms the system each day.
  4. Limit Open/Close Times – This feature will notify you if the system is disarmed outside specified hours. You may want to limit your morning opener only to a window of time from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Preventing 24-hour access — even for trusted employees — is one more way to secure your business.
  5. Video – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that about 30 percent of all business failures are traced directly to employee theft. B2C business owners should consider installing video cameras to monitor both customers and employees. Systems today can be monitored from a smartphone or tablet.

Bonus: Fire Security

Keeping your business secure against burglars and theft is critical, but it’s also important to consider other hazards that affect your business, such as fire. Fire is a big disaster for a small business. Fire detection systems allow for affordable and reliable protection that complies to stringent fire codes.

Fire protection systems can include:

  • Automatic and manual activation
  • Supervised smoke detectors
  • Waterflow supervisory systems to prevent water damage

IP Video Surveillance—A Step Above CCTV

IP CamerasWhether for your home or your business, knowing that you have the right security in place will help give you peace of mind. CCTV systems are one of the preferred security measures for both residential and commercial use and may be set to operate continuously or for a specific time period, with the video feed(s) can be controlled from one central location.

CCTV systems have been used in such applications as crime prevention and traffic monitoring for motor vehicles or for people (such as in schools or office buildings). Studies have found that the use of surveillance systems has a definite impact on negative activity.

With technology ever on the move, surveillance systems have changed for the better. IP video surveillance is one of the newer types of surveillance systems available to residential and commercial users.

What is IP Video Surveillance?

Like CCTV systems, IP video surveillance records events. However, IP video surveillance is completely digitized, using an IP camera with the video distributed over an IP network. Benefits of an IP surveillance system include:

  • Easy installation and user-friendly
  • Better quality images than standard CCTVs
  • Easily distribute recordings via email
  • Easily store video contents
  • Viewable, storable and manageable via mobile applications or web applications, from anywhere, anytime

To learn more about how your home or business can benefit from using an IP surveillance system, contact Secur-Tek at 919-387-1800.
