If you own your own business, you’ll want to have a decent commercial alarm system fitted to your premises. This is particularly important, because if you don’t live on the premises you’ll want added value each night to know that your business equipment and stock are not susceptible to theft and are still going to be intact morning. These days, through wireless technology and internet applications, it is possible to control your commercial burglar alarm when you’re not at work. In addition, you’ll be able to monitor your premises through CCTV when you’re at home, for added safety.
A Matter of Security
Often, having your stock or office equipment stolen is not merely an impact on the profit and production of your business, but there could also be serious implications regarding data protection of your clients, and other business sensitive information. This is why it pays to install a burglar alarm and CCTV monitoring system. Businesses all around Britain have been upgrading their security systems to ensure that sensitive data of their clients is kept out of safe hands.
Upgrade to Outsmart
A recent Crime Survey of England and Wales, issued by the Office of National Statistics, showed that the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton are the least affected by break-ins; but this is because more and more businesses are choosing to install an updated burglar alarm system in Hampshire. That means if your burglar alarm system is not up-to-date, it could be much less effective against business break-ins during the current climate.
Safety in Your Hands
As well as a more traditional control panel affixed to the wall of the premises, you can now operate an updated burglar alarm system using an app and a touch-screen tablet. Not only is this convenient, but fairly useful for allowing the correct people in at the right time, and keeping the intruders out.
- Perhaps an employee needs to enter the premises out of hours? Rather than escorting them to enter the code to turn off the burglar alarm, you can do it from the comfort of your own home. And with a telephone call you can give them the go ahead to enter, without raising any unnecessary alarms.
- Did you leave a couple of lights on in the office, and forgot to switch them off before you turned on the alarm system for the night? No problem, you can control all of the lights of the entire building using the app on your tablet.
- If you have CCTV cameras installed, you’ll also be able to monitor these seamlessly within the app.
Step up to success
If you are in charge of the business premises where you work, then you can’t really afford to have an out-dated security system. These days, with data protection leaks occurring globally, it pays to prevent any unnecessary data loss. Modern burglar alarm systems are incredibly sophisticated, yet extremely easy to operate, and that is the beauty of them. Most building managers are much more satisfied with the modern security systems on offer because it offers them greater control, also with greater convenience.
