In our line of work, when a security system is designed properly, most business owners forget that it’s there. But as a fellow business owner, you can use your security system in a way to make your bottom line tighter.
As you look towards budgeting and looking at upgrades, here are some of the main variables when it comes to a full operating system.
Cameras: Your second pair of eyes
They are your second pair of eyes to make sure your employees are acting properly. How you strategically place your cameras, like at the register, can help you see if your employees are present when clients walk in and providing superior service or otherwise.
Remote Control: Know the workflow of your office
You can opt to get a notification when your alarm is turned off. If you notice that notification doesn’t happen till 8:15 am instead of 8:00 am; that means that there could have been potentially missed calls. Cameras can also help by letting you check to see if your employee did arrive on time.
Card Access: The keys to your kingdom
Your card access system allows you to control who comes in and out of your building from your employees to your cleaning crew. Having a process that is easy to use and up to date is important so that when someone leaves the company, their access is turned off. This can lower the risk of a security breach.
If you have these three main pieces, then fantastic but is your system as efficient as it should be? Some things to consider:
How new is your equipment?
With technology advancing in leaps and bounds you want to make sure your system is well protected and can provide you with the quality images that you need.
Are they all talking together properly?
We understand that it’s very costly to implement a brand new system overnight but you want to make sure the new is playing well with the old. Having a trained and expert technician come out and manage the implementation can save you from a hassle of headaches.
Do you have procedures and systems in place to operate these?
