Small business owners can get the idea that installing a security system is easy. They may slap an IP camera pointing at the door, another at the register, and download an app to monitor everything. Now they think the store is completely secure. Here are a few talking points when it comes to helping small businesses see the importance of a professionally installed security system.
Professionally Selected Equipment
A vendor is in a much better position than a small business owner to evaluate security needs and select the appropriate equipment so that those needs are met fully. Sometimes a business owner may not even really understand how to use the features of a camera that was purchased online or what the app that runs camera does. As a result, the system may not do everything that is needed. Your company is in a better position to provide all of the right tech to keep a small business secure.
Positioning of Equipment
When it comes to sensors and cameras, the technology is only as good as its placement. Otherwise, an observant criminal can skirt around the security measures with ease and make off with a big score. Security professionals know what works and what doesn’t. That means cameras point where they need to point, and sensors get placed where they will detect illegal activities. It helps to minimize how much equipment a company needs to be well protected and also boosts the benefits of that equipment.
Installation, Maintenance, and Monitoring
Incorrectly installed equipment can easily fail when a business needs it most. And professionally maintained equipment is sure to be tested on the right schedule. Plus, monitored security means the boss doesn’t have to be glued to a grainy image on a smartphone 24/7.
