Keeping a commercial building fully protected against security threats can be challenging, but it is well worth the effort to prevent break-ins, vandalism, and other potential problems. Here are four strategies to incorporate into your security plan to protect your commercial property.

Lighting
Outdoor lighting is a crucial part of every well-rounded security strategy. With proper lighting, you can keep many criminals at bay. Make sure that the corners of your commercial property are fully lit as well as entrances. Lighting also plays an important part in video surveillance so that the cameras have sufficient light.

Security Signs
Security and warning signs are an excellent resource that can alarm criminals to stay away from your property. Install signs near all openings and entrances to have your property fully covered. Once you have the signs, make sure that you take care of them. If they get faded by the sun or outdoor elements, it’s time to replace them. Tattered decals and faded signs are indicative of a disengaged security provider or an outdated system.

Alarms
Verified security alarms can be your best defense against a break-in. Verified burglar alarm systems are drastically different than the conventional systems you may be familiar with. Instead of faulty motion detectors that lead to one false alarm after another, video verification technology allows monitoring operators to determine what is actually going on. When an alarm signal is received from your business, our experts verify what is going on. If there is a break-in, our operators dispatch the police on a high priority call.

Video Surveillance
Video surveillance is an effective solution for commercial buildings and is a must for large properties. Knowing that you can retrieve footage of an incident at your property, even for something like as a missing trash bin, gives you a feeling of control over your space. On top that that, just the physical presence of visible cameras can prompt thieves to find another target.
