Moving into a new business space or looking to upgrade your current office’s security measures? From adding more lights and an improved security alarm system to installing new locks and smart access, these four tips will help you create a safer workplace in no time.
1. Light Up Your Business
A happy burglar is a burglar who can hide. Oftentimes, these criminals seek out dark places. Warehouses surrounded by darkness or shops that turn off the lights after closing can be inviting to intruders. Establishing well-placed lights can deter criminal interest, and motion sensitive lights have proven especially effective.
2. Install a Security Alarm System
A security alarm system provides a direct line to help even when you are not on site and acts as a deterrent for intruders. These systems have a wide array of options, including features for monitoring a business from the safety and comfort of your own home.
3. Update Your Locks
If you have recently leased or moved your business into a new building, change the locks immediately. The former occupant may have copies of the keys, or an ex-employee of the previous occupant may have kept a key. Since you do not know who may have a key, always update your locks as soon as possible.
4. Install Smart Access
Technology is a beautiful thing when it comes to security. Thanks to security alarm innovations, there are smart lock systems with extraordinary features. You can restrict or change access with just a few keystrokes. Want to know who entered certain areas of your business and when? Many of these systems make that information available. You even have multiple access options when it comes to smart access systems.
