Commercial Security – 5 ways to secure your business

Having a security system in place not only protects your commercial property, it also helps safeguard staff whilst in the workplace and after they have left for the day. For businesses up and down the country, we’d recommend working with a local security company who can find the best security solutions, with minimal disruption to you and your staff.

Whether you have had a security breach in the past or are looking to install a robust system into your commercial premises for peace of mind  White Horse Fire & Security have put together 5 ways to secure your business:

  1. Door access – Choosing a security system for your front and rear doors, basement entrances or reception is a simple but effective way of knowing exactly who is entering your commercial property and restricting unwanted visitors. There are a range of professional door security products and solutions available including: swipe card and toggle systems for staff and visitors allowing entry into an external or internal door. Keypad code access is commonly used and very effective when the codes are regularly changed. Staff personal identification products give a visual indication who is a member of staff and who is a scheduled visitor. New staff can easily be added to or removed from the system. Door security systems can be integrated with your current systems in place or can be switched over from your current provider.
  2. Intruder alarms – These are an audio device that start when one of the motion sensors detect movement within one of your secure zones. If an alarm is triggered, the main control panel will indicate which secure zone has detected movement. Alarms like these can be set up to alert a member of staff that a specific sensitive area has been entered and it can also alert you when an intruder has entered the commercial property, outside working hours. So what happens if the intruder alarm is triggered? For the ultimate protection White Horse Fire & Security can make sure when your intruder alarm is triggered, the local police will be at your commercial property in a matter of minuets.
  3. Commercial CCTV – is a well known and trusted way of helping keep an eye on your property. CCTV can give you great coverage from the boundaries of your property, garages, outside office space, car parks, lock ups, storage spaces and small internal spaces. White Horse Fire & Security offer a fully integrated app on your phone or tablet, giving you 24/7 surveillance even when you’re away on business. Work with your security company to get the most out of your cameras and images. When choosing a security company, make sure your cameras are all set up correctly and tested to meet your specific needs. For larger commercial premises, your CCTV system can be hard wired or managed centrally via a hub, so no need for miles of untidy cabling.

  4. Gates, barriers, turnstiles – each business has its unique business security needs to help keep commercial property secure and there are lots of vehicle security products on the market to help with this. Audio/ intercom systems and monitored gates have become very popular with larger businesses and those with many different buildings to cover. If you own a large commercial property, an automated gate with intercom system can give staff an efficient and effective way of allowing visitors to enter your property and at the push of a button staff can grant permission to enter. Vehicle registrations and daily deliveries are easily managed and tracked via these systems. Like White Horse Fire & Security, your security company should carry out 6 monthly maintenance checks on your security fixtures such as barriers and hydraulic fluid checks etc to make sure they remain in full working order.

Whatever your commercial security needs, a good security company can help protect your premises and help safeguard your staff.
