When you finish work for the day, do you rely on the last person out to close windows, doors, switch off the lights and lock the premises or do you go round and do final checks yourself? The truth is that making your business premises safe and secure overnight isn’t always easy, but there are things that you can do to alleviate some of the concerns over security issues. Let’s take a look.
Closed-Circuit Television or CCTV is a good way of protecting your property from any unwanted intruders. It might not stop them from entering, but more often than not it acts as a deterrent. In this day and age monitoring can be done remotely at a centralised location and can be carried out by security personnel. In addition real time pictures can also be streamed onto mobile phones meaning that the business owner can have one eye on the business, even when they aren’t there
On-site security officer
For larger corporations who have the money to invest in security, it might be an idea to have an on-site security officer. As well as acting as a deterrent for any potential break-ins or theft, they can control entry of people coming in and out of the premises, carry out perimeter checks, monitor CCTV, check that relevant areas are locked and secure and switch off lights where necessary.
For smaller businesses who simply don’t have the budget to employ a full-time security guard, then another way to keep up security measures is to employ a reputable security company who will operate a mobile patrol policy. Utilising mobile patrols, companies will periodically check your premises (at a frequency that suits you) to make sure that it remains secure.
Many reputable security companies offer keyholding services. In essence the security service in question will keep a set of your keys and when everyone has finished for the day, they will check to make sure that the premises are securely fastened and that no windows or external doors are left open. In the morning they can also entertain an unlocking service where they’ll de-activate any alarms and unlock the premises ready for staff to arrive.
So there you have it. 4 top resources that you can use in order to make sure your premises remains secure overnight.
