Does your business have a security system?
If not, what’s holding you back?
If you’re like many business owners, you may be hesitant to take on the added expense. With all the demands of inventory, shipments and customer service as well as the costs of maintaining your business, a security system can seem like another hassle.
Rest assured that this is not the case. A business security system is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your future.
Here are five wonderful reasons your business needs a security system.
1. Deter Burglars
The biggest benefit to installing a security system is keeping burglars and other criminals away from your property.
Burglars like easy targets, and a business without the proper video surveillance is considered such. By installing a business security system, you keep burglars off your property from the start.
Be sure to place security cameras and security system decals in visible places so that criminals know your property is protected, and customers and employees know your business is safe.
2. Professional Appearance
To establish your credibility and provide your customers with peace of mind, a business security system says it all. Customers and employees notice when businesses have video cameras in and around the property, and it makes them feel more secure. It also shows them that their safety is important to you, too. This is especially important if your business works with sensitive information.
3. Emergency Response
If your alarm system is activated, the monitoring company will be alerted immediately. From there, you will be notified that your alarm has gone off and so will the local authorities. Within seconds, your business will be given the attention it needs. Best of all, your business is protected even when you can’t be there.
4. Save on Insurance
Want to save money off insurance? A business security system can put more money into your pocket.
Contact your insurance company and ask if they offer discounts for having a security system installed. Many insurance providers offer discounts for businesses that have security systems and fire alarms installed.
5. Liability Claims
Did you know that having security cameras installed can help with liability issues?
Though many businesses only think about the security side of things, business monitoring can come in handy for more things. For instance, if your business is blamed for something by a customer or employee, you can look back at your security cameras to get the true account of what happened.
In the end, cameras can help determine if your company was responsible.
