Why Invest in a Security System as a New Business?
4 Reasons to Invest in a Good Security System
Securing your new business and assets is an important part of the business set-up process. Your business is a valuable asset, but unfortunately, too often, security is way down on our list of things to do. So, to make sure that you set your business off on the right path, here are 4 reasons why you must make sure to invest in a good business security system from the outset.
Reason 1: Security for you and your staff
To feel comfortable at work, one needs to feel safe. And that’s one of the things that a good security system offers – the feeling of security and safety.
Safety – knowing that if a fire breaks out, you will be notified so you can evacuate the building. Safety – knowing that CO2 monitors are installed to protect from carbon monoxide poisoning. Plus, the feelings of security are certainly enhanced when you know that burglar alarms and CCTV cameras are installed to protect you.
Reason 2: Securing your property and contents
The loss of your business assets could be devastating and set you back. Every appliance and equipment in your business, no matter how small, serves a function and should be protected. Once they are lost, it means having to find money to invest in new ones.
Secure your company’s property and contents with a good security system. First, a good camera system can help to deter theft or at the least identify who may have stolen your items. Secondly, if you had your system professionally installed, it may come with fire alarm monitoring. This is essential in protecting your business assets from fire.
Reason 3: Reduced insurance premiums
With a good security system, you can often have leverage to discuss insurance premiums with your insurance provider. Because your system will be designed to actively deter criminal activity as well as provide some level of protection from fire, etc., you can negotiate lower rates on insurance premiums which makes having a security system a win-win in more ways than one.
Reason 4: Reduce fraudulent claims from unscrupulous individuals
Finally, a sound security system can help you avoid fraudulent insurance claims from unscrupulous individuals. Security cameras can be used to verify claims ranging from sexual harassment to claims of injury while on your premises.
So, when you’re in the process of setting up your new business, keep a commercial security system at the top of your list as an essential item you must have before starting to operate. You will be more than glad you did.
