Security For Businesses – Knowing What To Invest Into

By Jon Benowitz on January 30, 2014 in Business Security
There are many different types of security camera systems for businesses.  Researching which type of system is best for your business is the first important step.  Many factors play a role in the decision making process.  Some of these may include the type of business, the amount of time and effort required to install the equipment, and the amount of money that the business is willing to invest.

Here at JSB Surveillance, we work hard to offer the best possible products for a variety of different purposes, ensuring that we always go the extra mile for our clients.  Take a look at your premises, determine whether or not you require additional security, and budget the amount that you would like to spend on your upgrades.  By taking small steps, you can greatly deter theft, and ensure that you are able to properly protect your premises.

Basic Security

Basic security systems are significantly better than no system.  We have 4-channel DVR packages starting as low as $600.00.  Even the most basic systems will record security cameras at a high digital resolution, provide motion detection recording, and have built-in remote access.  Our entry system can be viewed via your Iphone, Ipad, and Android device.  Our starter system even has a built-in 500GIG hard drive which will provide months of recordings.

One benefit of investing in a basic security camera system is the fact that it is going to greatly reduce the amount of time and effort that you have to put into securing your premises, and will not require you to make a large investment in the process.  These basic systems can easily be installed by yourself.  JSB Surveillance offers free unlimited phone tech support with all system purchases.

Installation is definitely something that needs to be considered when investing in a security system.  Most basic security systems are simple enough for business owners to install themselves, but we are always available to help you throughout the installation process as well.  Also, there are many guides online for different security systems, which can help you to install security system if you are having problems.

Professional Business Security Camera Systems

Higher-end business security camera and alarm systems are going to be a bit more expensive, usually costing hundreds to thousands of dollars.   Something to consider with the larger systems is the fact that you are going to need to train management and staff on how to use the system.  We offer free staff training with the purchase of any security or alarm system.

On Site and Remote Surveillance Monitoring

One thing that needs to be taken into consideration when you are looking at different security systems is going to be whether or not you would like an on-site security team, or if you are going to choose to go with off-site monitoring.  There are many things that need to be taken into account throughout the process in order to ensure that you are able to make a smart decision, and do what is right for your business.  On-site security provides a number of advantages, but is going to be several times more expensive.

An on-site private security team is able to conduct foot patrols, and keep a special eye on the blind spots on your campus.  However, there are situations in which off-site monitoring through surveillance systems and closed-circuit television systems can be a great way for you to monitor the situation and also ensure that you were going to be able to get the best possible surveillance for your property.  A common tactic among thieves is to create distractions for on-site security, and attempt to get into the facility.  So while on-site security is still fallible, it usually results in tighter security overall, especially when combined with surveillance.

Boosting Loss Prevention

Loss prevention is an important part for any business, but especially important for businesses that have a large amount of high dollar items. You want to make sure that you are able to limit the opportunity for theft, and prevent losses to the best of your ability.  Identifying problem areas of your business, and ensuring that you are able to properly secure those areas is essential for bettering your security.  Many businesses conduct a risk reward analysis, which can be an excellent idea for individuals that are not quite certain how much they need to invest, and would like to identify the potential risks for their business.
