Ensuring there is adequate security in place is an essential requirement for all business owners. However, if your budget is tight, it can be tempting to make compromises. This can leave your business exposed to theft or crime such as vandalism. Thankfully, a number of budget-friendly and highly effective solutions are available, with options suitable for businesses of all types and sizes.
Choosing the best security systems for your business can feel like a daunting prospect. So, with this in mind, setting out a security plan is a great place to start, whilst helping you ensure you don’t waste money on unnecessary systems.
Security planning for your businesses
The first step you take should be to take an inventory of any security systems you currently have in place. Include everything related to security including alarms, CCTV cameras, security lighting and locking systems.
The next step is to prioritise potential security threats to your business. For example, if your business premises is open to the public, is theft a recurring problem? Is employee safety a concern? Is your business premises used to store valuable stock or equipment? Is vandalism a problem? Does your premises have vulnerable access points, such as loading bays, which would benefit from additional protection. All businesses will have at least some physical security needs, so take time to think about your priorities.
Once you’ve compiled an inventory of your existing security equipment and identified your to priorities, you’ll be able to start developing a security plan. At this stage it’s important to consider installation. Whilst installing new equipment yourself can, on the face of it, seem like a great way to cut costs, professional installation is the best way to prevent equipment from malfunctioning and when a fault develops, you’ll have to arrange professional repairs, or invest in a new system.
