As the weather continues to get warmer and we start heading into the summer season, many commercial businesses will also begin to experience a surge of customers and visitors. More customers equal more business, which is great news for business owners! Unfortunately, more people also means more potential for problems. For some businesses, it might be time to consider upgrading their commercial security systems.
Analog or Low-Res Systems
If your business is still using old-school analog or low-resolution systems, it has been time to upgrade your security for a long while, and now is as good a time as any. Analog and low-res systems just aren’t doing your business any favors. They lack the capabilities of modern digital security and surveillance systems, and a low-resolution feed isn’t going to provide any pertinent information in the event of a security issue. Many incidents will likely go entirely unnoticed until it’s too late if your business is still rocking low-resolution systems.
Digital systems have access to many more important capabilities that make commercial security monitoring easier than ever, with additions like AI-based analytics and various levels of security automation and alarms.
Lack of Remote Capabilities
Remote security capabilities make everything about managing and maintaining your commercial security as easy as possible. In many cases, you can now control modern security systems from a single phone or tablet. It allows you to stay on top of your security needs from pretty much anywhere. In fact, thanks to modern security and surveillance, you can get security alerts on your mobile device any time there’s a potential issue, allowing you to respond immediately—even if it takes place during off-hours.
No Integration Options
Modern security systems are bringing more to the table than just remote capabilities (although those are really awesome). Security integration has come leaps and bounds in a short amount of time, allowing business owners and security professionals to monitor not just security systems but other important safety systems present in the building. Integration can allow a single person to monitor various security systems, such as access control and video surveillance. In addition, they can also monitor life safety systems, such as fire suppression and carbon monoxide detection. The ability to keep an eye on all of these systems in one place and have them properly integrated in order to utilize complex digital monitoring creates a strong security web that protects your business around the clock without the need for excess manpower or human intervention.
The cost may seem steep up-front, but the protection that modern systems offer is unparalleled.
