How to burglar-proof your business
Whether you are running a large or small enterprise, you cannot afford to have burglars breaking into your place of business. Therefore, you must invest resources into ensuring that your business is protected at all times.
Here are five steps that you can take to burglar-proof your business
Conceal the wiring outside of your business premises
Intruders will often cut cables outside of a building to try and disable surveillance and other security measures. Therefore, ensure that you conceal all external wiring in your business premises using cable conduits or a mounting base.
Invest in a safe for your cash and valuables
If you deal with high-value items such as jewellery or keep cash on hand overnight, ensure that these items are safely stored away in a safe. Consider investing in a commercial-grade safe for small things and strong locked doors with access control partitions for bigger items.
Illuminate your business
One of the best ways to deter burglars from breaking into your business is to ensure that you install adequate lighting both inside and outside. Make sure that each entry point is flooded with light, including the parking lot. This will help your cameras get a clearer picture of the intruders as well as their vehicle’s plate number.
Install a CCTV security system
Investing in a sound security system increases your chances of preventing break-ins and apprehending the perpetrators. There are different types of CCTV cameras, so consult a professional on which kind of camera is best for your needs. Dome CCTV cameras are best for deterring intruders because the dome-shaped casing makes it difficult for the burglar to tell which way the camera is facing. For areas where you want more coverage, consider getting bullet or C-mount CCTV cameras. Also, ensure that you get cameras with IR night vision.
Install an alarm system
In addition to installing CCTV cameras, invest in an alarm system. It should alert you and the authorities as soon as there is a security breach so that they can act promptly. A good alarm system will also help protect your business against other disasters such as a fire.
