Tips for Keeping Your Commercial Property Safe
Imagine you’re heading into work one morning and you see that the front window of your business is smashed in. You step inside and see that the place is trashed. Laptops are stolen, important and confidential documents are missing, and you have no idea who the culprit could be. To make matters worse, when the cops arrive and ask for any security camera footage to help them find the person or persons responsible, you have nothing to show them. That feeling of hopelessness and despair is not fun, but thankfully, there are some steps you can take to make your business more secure.
- Consider Installing a CCTV or Security Camera System
- Install High-Security Locks or Electronic Locks
- Keep Valuables Locked Up in a Safe or Other Limited-Access Area
The great thing about a CCTV system is that it allows you to see what’s going on inside and outside of your business. If funds are missing from the cash register or supplies are missing from a supply closet, you can roll back the tapes to find the culprit responsible. Alternatively, if someone breaks into your business, you can catch a glimpse of who it was and possibly even a license plate.
Another benefit to CCTV systems or other security camera systems is that even the sight of them alone can deter criminal activity. The bad guys don’t want to get caught and if you have cameras throughout your facility, they may skip on to the next.
Installing high-security locks or electronic locks are another way to keep your business safe. High-security locks cannot be picked and must be drilled, which is a big deterrent to criminals. In addition, electronic locks and access control systems allow you to control who goes in and out of your business with access cards or FOBS, and adds yet another level of safety.
Another important safety feature is a safe. You should always store valuables in a secure safe. In addition, you should also consider locking file cabinets if your business houses sensitive data and information. At RBM Lock & Key, we have experience installing safes and other locking mechanisms to keep your valuables and documents safe.
