Business security systems have to address access, surveillance and response
In the old days you probably did not need much more that a lock and a key to secure your business. Things have changed since then and today’s business security systems are much more advanced. That is because they need to be. A lock and key won’t keep you, your business or building safe anymore. Coastal Empire supplies and installs advanced business security systems throughout Beaufort SC, Bluffton SC and Savannah GA.
A lock and key system alone won cut it anymore for some obvious reasons and some less obvious ones. Keys can be misplaced, get lost or be duplicated. It also easy for some criminals to pick a lock. A key and lock system does not capture or provide any useful information. A door with a lock is not only way someone might gain entry into your business or building. A key and lock system is not likely to deter a determined criminal.
Proper business security systems need to address various aspects and concern. The fist important role of security is to deter and prevent. By simply making it too risky and difficult for someone to commit a crime, you prevent it in the first place. The second level is that of alert, response and action. Should an intrusion or unwanted event occur, then you need to be alerted and the security company needs to be alerted. That way rapid response can be triggered. The third level is that of recording and evidence. You need evidence about an event so that appropriate action can be taken.
Modern business security systems should therefore address the areas of access, surveillance, response and information. That is the kind of building security that will keep you, your workers and your assets safe. They say if you so something you may as well do it right. That is especially true when it comes to critical things such as business security systems.
