Let’s assume you’ve got your IT system secured against the rising threat from cyber-criminals, but what about your tangible assets? Just as protection against malware has become ever more sophisticated, so have surveillance and security alarm systems. The fact is, these ‘hardware’ systems have had to evolve because the boots-on-the-ground criminals have become more tech-savvy too.
Each year, Australian businesses lose millions of dollars due to break-ins, robbery’s, employee theft, vandalism and stock shrinkage. Preventing these issues could be as simple as installing modern surveillance and security alarm systems. So, what are you waiting for?
A Cost/Benefit Analysis that’s a no-brainer
We’re not suggesting you should turn your business into an embodiment of Huxley’s Brave New World, far from it. But a sensible deployment of no-invasive cameras to keep an eye on things is a good idea. With a video record of daily events in and around your business, you’ll be reaping the little-known benefits of well-designed surveillance and security alarm systems.
Prevention is better than the cure
Firstly, should a liability claim, dispute, theft or act of vandalism occur, you’ve now got access a definitive record of events. Secondly, an alarm system that’s rigged to detect break-ins or vandalism 24/7/365 via vibration, movement and even humidity changes, brings a great deal of peace of mind. In addition, it also enables a pretty clear record of staff movement. Finally, you’ve created a reason for crime prevention, which is surely the best of all benefits.
The icing on the cake is that your insurance premiums will probably go down too.
How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?
Surveillance and security alarm systems have become a combination of high-quality, high-resolution hardware conveniently coupled with Wi-Fi usability. These days, it’s easy for managers and business owners to view multiple camera feeds on a smartphone wherever you are. In addition, you’ll receive instant updates if the cameras or alarm system detect any change or movement.
