Deploying a security system is not a guarantee that your business is protected. Criminals are getting smarter by the day and thus, are able to find loopholes in your security system. Therefore, it is important to consult an experienced security systems provider such as I-Tech Security to help you design foolproof Business Security Systems that are tailor-made to fit your needs and budget.
The Elements of An Ideal Business Security System
1. Reliable Power Source
Your business security system requires a reliable and secure source of power in order to be effective. A power source that is easily accessible can be dismantled by criminals and in effect, deactivate the security system. As such, many security systems are designed to allow the power source control panel to be secured within a server closet. Securing the power and access panels ensures that only a limited number of people are able to access and arm/disarm the security system.
On the other hand, an unstable power source leads to major security lapses since the security system will keep going on and off. In addition, constant power fluctuations may lead to the security system malfunctioning. For this reason, the best Business Security Systems are equipped with backup batteries, which enable the system to keep operating even when the mains power goes off due to power outages or when cut by criminals.
2. Threat Detection
The best Business Security Systems come with sufficient mechanisms to detect a wide range of security breaches. Usually, the systems consist of different kinds of sensors including motion-activated sensors, vibration sensors, magnetic contacts, acoustic receivers, and smoke/fire detectors, etc.
3. Response Mechanism
An effective business security system should offer an appropriate response mechanism that either alerts you of the imminent/on-going breach or triggers a preventive mechanism to eliminate the threat. For instance, you should opt for a monitored business alarm system that warns you and/or the emergency response center of the impending danger, who can then alert law enforcement. At the same time, you want a system that responds by letting the proverbial hell to break loose - including strobe lights, and exterior or interior sirens.
