Security systems that cover large buildings, multiple points of entry, and specific interior inventory and equipment areas, are understandably more complex. We’ll cover some of the basics here. Our best advice is to work with a professional, do research, and thoroughly vet any security company you are considering signing a contract with.
Businesses with shift workers or a large staff may want to start with an access control system that provides control over who can enter your facility and tracks the movement of employees in and out of the building. In some cases, it’ll be important to restrict access to different areas within a building. You can accomplish all of this with one integrated system. These systems are available as standalone systems or as fully-integrated solutions that connect to the rest of your security infrastructure. You can also choose from a wide range of options including proximity cards, smart cards, and even biometrics.
Video Surveillance is always a good idea for industrial businesses and warehouses. Video cameras and CCTV systems that provide high resolution video day and night are one of the best first-line defenses and your best tool for investigating crimes and recovering losses. Be sure to work with a professional when installing a CCTV system. Placement is important to make sure coverage is sufficient, but also to ensure that your systems aren’t vulnerable to perpetrators who may try to disable them.
If you’ve got multiple sites or disparate systems that need to be connected, consider working with a security company that provides management services which may include hosted services, on-site or dedicated security staff, and other internal and external resources.
