5 Ways A Security Company Can Help Your Business

The purpose of a security company is to help you protect your staff, customers and assets by using the best safety and security systems available.

  1. Intruder Alarm System
  2. Most business will require a burglar alarm to be installed at their business premises to protect their stock and equipment from theft and vandalism when they are locked up for the night. Your local security experts will be able to advise what is required at your business. They will have local knowledge about how thieves are targeting businesses and what type of businesses are being targeted. They can use that knowledge to advise you on the best type of system for your business.

  3. Security Cameras (CCTV)
  4. Unlike a burglar alarm, CCTV can be used 24×7, even when your business is open. Not only is it a great burglar deterrent but CCTV footage can be used as evidence in Court and is extremely useful for helping the Police to capture thieves or vandals.

    CCTV also provides security for your staff and customers.  Yes, it can be used to check your staff aren’t stealing cash or stock. However, in most cases, businesses will use it to protect their staff.  People are less likely to be aggressive to your staff if they know they are being filmed.

  5. Fire Safety Systems & Emergency Lighting
  6. Fire kills and causes vast amounts of damage! Scotland has strict laws in place regarding fire safety which must be adhered to. Your local security company can install the best fire alarm systems along with emergency lighting that meets the current standards required.  Modern systems will include remote monitoring and can include fire brigade signalling systems.

  7. Access Security Systems
  8. Access security systems can be used for the whole building or just an area like an office or storeroom that you don’t want customers to get access to. Electronic access control provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your business’ building and assets. Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again. Once an access control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or registered with access privileges is unable to gain access.

  9. Health Protection Systems
  10. In the last year we have seen how illness can temporarily close down a company. Even when COVID-19 lockdown restrictions were not in place, a business could be shut down for deep cleaning if a COVID outbreak was found. If your staff work in close proximity with each other or your business gets lots of customers, installing thermal body screening CCTV at your main door can prevent people with a temperature entering your business and potentially spreading an illness such as COVID-19 or flu.
