5 Reasons To Upgrade Your Commercial Security System

July 26, 2016

You may be wondering if upgrading your property's security system is necessary or if you can push it off a little longer. Although saving money is key, an outdated system can cost you more if an incident were to occur. Read this article to learn the top 5 reasons why you should upgrade your commercial security system. 


Benefiting From The Latest Technology

Your security systems may be fully functional but as technology advances, the technology around your business should advance too. More security risks arise over time and businesses should be prepared to prevent any security incidents from happening. To stay one step ahead of the criminals it’s important to keep up with the latest advancements in business security. Utilizing the latest technology will not only enhance property safety but also make visitors feel safer as well. This helps grow your business and keeps everyone safe.  

Better Monitoring Capabilities

Every area and access point on your commercial property should be effectively monitored inside and out. Outdated security cameras may not capture certain angles, leaving blind spots where criminal activity can occur. With security cameras placed in optimal locations, you’ll be able to monitor all activity in and around the property. A lot of properties still have outdated cameras that commonly experience technical difficulties or have blind spots increasing safety risks. Installation of new cameras and other monitoring technologies or even updating old camera systems will allow for security improvement.

Improved Control And Convenience

New devices have easier access and control than ever before. With new or upgraded card readers and access control systems you can conveniently monitor your business even if you’re not on the premises. For example, with an upgraded system it would be possible to let a delivery man in and then relock the building from a different location.

Save Money In The Long Run

Old security systems can often need maintenance but when fixed, still don't provide optimal quality. Working with a company that can not only provide the latest technology but also enhance and utilize older technology will save your business money and ensure you have what you need to keep your facility protected. Newer systems that are easier to use also save time and money when new employees need to learn how the technology functions. Additionally, maintaining the most technologically advanced security system may result in reduced insurance premiums and deductibles.

Deters Criminal Activity 

Security systems are meant to protect and therefore deter criminal activity. However, an outdated system stands out and is something criminals look for. The good news is an upgraded system also stands out and will not only provide better technology but help deter criminals just by being there.
