Commercial Security System Requirements

Your business requires special attention when it comes to an alarm system. There are additional considerations beyond what a residential security system requires. Click here to find out the best security system installation for your business.

Your business may have some or all of the following additional considerations:

  • Assets stored outside of your building
  • Business Hours are 24/7
  • High amounts of cash on hand
  • High priced, physically small items
  • Small Business operated from home
  • Multiple Users
  • Assets Stored Outside of your Building

If your business requires items to be stored outside of a locked building then you will need to have additional security devices installed to protect your property. These items may be:

  • Contacts located on a gate
  • Beam Detectors along your fence line
  • Motion Detector installed to focus on a specific area
  • Security Cameras to detect and record intruders
  • Business Hours are 24/7

If your business never closes you may think that you do not need an alarm system. You may not need some of the traditional monitoring for a conventional business but there are other considerations. A business that is open throughout the night is more susceptible to a hold-up.

If your business uses a high amount of cash transactions you should have a hold-up switch. In the old days, these switches were located by the cash register. With wireless systems now available you can have panic switches located anywhere in the building or worn by key personnel. This provides extra protection for your employees.
