Is your small business protected from the risk of crime?

Security solutions for small businesses

If your business is small but perfectly formed, the chances are that you’ve invested an awful lot of your own time, energy and money into ensuring it’s a success. However, even though you’ve gone the extra mile to ensure your business gets off to a good start, it’s important to think about whether you’ve done everything you can to prevent criminals undermining all that hard work.

With this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at some of the ways small businesses can protect themselves from the risk of crime:

  • Take control of access: Being broken into is probably the biggest security concern for most small businesses. Replacing stolen stock, personal belongings and office equipment can easily add up to a huge bill. Making sure all windows are protected by robust locks is a good place to start, whilst you should also keep a careful record of who has keys. If yours is the type of business which doesn’t rely on customers walking in, an access control system can prove highly beneficial. A range of access control systems are available, with options to suit all budgets. Not only does access control provide you with increased security, managing keys becomes a thing of the past!
  • Make sure you’re visible: Security lighting offers a cost effective way to protect your business. The sight of security lights is often enough to deter criminals and will help to draw attention to your premises if a crime is taking place. It’s important to make sure that your security lights wont affect your neighbours though so it’s important to plan their locations carefully.
  • CCTV offers an unbeatable way to protect your business premises, with camera systems suitable for interior and exterior use. CCTV can be used to prevent and detect crime, whilst also providing valuable evidence should the worst happen. Small businesses often only need a couple of cameras and we’re happy to offer advice on the best system for you.
  • Monitored alarms: Monitored alarms help to deter intruders from attempting to enter a property and if a break in happens, will ensure the police are on the way. It is important that an alarm system is designed, installed and maintained by a specialist security company such as FirstEye and again we are always happy to provide our customers with advice.
