A Guide to Easy but Effective Small Business Security Solution
As a small business owner, you are always playing several roles: marketing, founder, even janitor, sometimes—just to name a few. Not to add even more to your role, but it is important for small business owners also to act as the head of security to ensure that your business is secure.
Providing security for your business can be tough if you begin to consider the cost of finding the solutions to guard your employees and critical assets. To help you utilize your time efficiently, we have put together some ideas of simple, practical solutions that will defend your business, without hurting your wallet.
It is important to consider buying a system that not only helps your employees feel safe and prevents burglars but also helps take your business to the next level. Security systems nowadays can do much more than just sound the alarm against destruction and theft. A tilt sensor ideal for protecting garage doors or camera sensors that can capture live snapshots when motion is detected, this video notification system is essential and provides everything you need to watch your business.
As a busy business owner, there are going to be hours when you are away from the organization, focusing on other things. For that reason, you will want to implement access control measures to assure that you know who has access to your building. Several companies offer advanced access control resources, but at Securo Security, our focus is to provide the most cost effective “smart lock automation” solution, enabling you to know exactly who has entered your office and when they left (in addition to many other customizable features that we will advise you on).
One piece of security that often neglected is that of employee monitoring. It is important to know what your employees are up to when you are not around. There are two ways to this; one; you can set up cameras to monitor key target spots, like a POS system or employee lunch rooms. Two, you can utilize cloud-based employee monitoring to assist with maximizing productivity and ensure employees are only using approved websites during the workday.
GPS trackers can be a cost-effective way to keep track of your investments. GPS trackers assist in tracking your shipments in real time so you can monitor them right from phone or PC. Most GPS trackers will offer geofencing features, ensuring you receive an instant notification alert when a device leaves a certain perimeter you have assigned. For example, if inventory was stolen and someone walked out of the store, you can set it up to be notified right away.
