17 Jan 3 ways to monitor business entrances
Security for your business doesn’t end at the front door, but it certainly begins there. An effective business security strategy starts at your building’s entrance. Monitored entrances create a safeguard between your business and potential intruders. Not taking into account all the ways there are to protect any retail inventory, we can at the very least keep your business safe by using the right equipment to properly monitor everyone that enters and exits your space.
- Install Surveillance Cameras This one almost feels like a given, but there’s no better insurance policy than a clear image of those coming through your front door. In the event of an incident, you’ll be able to refer right back to these recordings. You can also keep an eye out for suspicious activity from anywhere with mobile monitoring solutions. This mobile-compatible technology allows you to check in on your security camera live feeds from your tablet or smartphone, no matter where you are.
- Utilize Door Alarms After hours, keep doors secure with monitored alarms, which sound an audible alert when the front door (or other point of entry) is breached. The most effective alarms link to a monitoring center, which triggers an operator to call you and dispatch emergency services.
- Integrate Access Control An access control system uses advanced technology to give certain people access to designated areas. Employees can gain access to building entrances automatically with a number of different products, including access cards, biometric readers, access via smart devices, and intercoms. Access control systems are an efficient way to keep employees moving in and out of your building, while vetting guests with an extra security layer.
Protect every entrance to your business with these tips and you’ll gain comfort knowing that your assets are secure.
