According to the FBI, a burglary occurs in the United States every 14.6 seconds. That means by the time you are finished reading this, multiple burglaries will have already occurred. Securing your business with a professionally installed security system will put your mind at ease knowing that you have every possible avenue covered. The following are some of the many benefits to a professional business security system.
1. Protection from Intruders
Burglars know that nights and weekends are the most vulnerable times for your business. They love that they can get in-and-out without anyone around to notice. You can stop intruders in their tracks with a professional security system that will alert the proper authorities and you immediately after a break-in.
2. 24/7 Monitoring
Having a locally monitored alarm system not only means that your security system will sound when your alarm is triggered, it will also alert the authorities as soon as an alarm is tripped. The 24/7 monitoring service will know exactly where and when someone was on your property and the police will be dispatched in a matter of minutes. Wherever you are, you will also be alerted via phone call whenever suspicious activity is detected.
3. Reduce Your Insurance Rate
While this is not always the case, sometimes insurance companies will offer discounts for businesses that use professionally installed security systems. Check with your insurance provider today and see if they offer any discounts as well as what you would need to qualify.
4. Protect Your Business from Fire
It takes just minutes for a fire to catch, potentially leaving your business in flames. Most commercial security systems now have smoke detectors built into the monitoring system, meaning as soon as there is smoke detected, the fire department will be notified and your business could be saved from rubble.
5. Prevent Unauthorized Entry
Knowing who comes and goes from your business is essential to effective business security. With a professionally installed security system, you can track and monitor who is coming and going with a state-of-the-art access control system.
