Four Ways To Protect Your Business From Burglars

by Tara Pena

If you own commercial property, there are probably times there is no one on the premises, which means there is a chance unwanted visitors can come onto your property, and even break into your building. If you want to ensure something like this never happens, here are four ways to protect your business from burglars.

Security System Installation

It's popular these days to get a security system for your home, but while you're at it, you might as well get one for your business, too. Some of the most popular features when it comes to a security system for your business include:

  • Video surveillance
  • Electronic access control
  • Remote monitoring

In addition to these features, you can also have a system that automatically places a call to first responders, which can increase the chances of catching the burglar.

Commercial Gate Installation

You may want to consider installing a commercial gate on your property. Besides offering another barrier of protection for your place of business, a commercial gate also offers the following benefits:

  • Can make your property look better by helping to hide unattractive buildings like warehouses
  • Besides keeping out burglars and other unwanted guests, a gate can keep out solicitors
  • Allows you to better control the access to other locations on your property

Besides offering added protection and security, getting a commercial gate installed is a great way to add privacy.

Lots of Light

Burglars usually strike in the dark, which is why you should have plenty of lights installed on your commercial property. It is especially helpful if your point of entrance is flooded with light. You can also choose to keep some lights on onside as well. Of course having these lights might cause your electric bill to go up, but if they can protect your business from getting burglarized, it is well worth it. Motion-activated lights are also a great option.

Security Guards

If you really want to make sure burglars are going to stay away from your business, you may want to consider hiring a security guard. Before hiring a security guard, you will have to decide whether or not you want an armed guard or an unarmed one. Some questions you'll want to ask before hiring a security guard include:

  • Are they licensed?
  • What type of training do they have?
  • Are they monitored?

Whether you choose to install a security system, a commercial gate, lots of lighting, or hire a security guard, your business will be well protected from burglars.
