5 signs you need to update your workplace security
When it comes to your workplace, we’re sure you have stock or equipment that you have invested in, as well as confidential information that has to be kept private. No matter what is kept in your workplace, from a retail store to an office, high-quality security systems are a must. You may already have one in place, but how much confidence do you hold in it? As experts in commercial security, here are 4 signs that signal it could be time to update your security systems…
- Your security footage is low-resolution
With the speed at which technology is improving, there really is no need to have a low-resolution CCTV or security camera at your workplace! Take advantage of the latest developments and introduce the same level of quality you’d see on your TV into your business. It really could be the difference between catching a criminal and letting them get away.
- When was your last update?
If you are struggling to remember when your last security update was, this could be your sign to welcome a new system. Chances are, your current system may now be out of date, exceeding any warranties or simply not having available stock for replacement parts. Keeping your security systems up to date is something which should be at the top of your to-do lists, ensuring that the protection around your workplace is paramount.
- Have you needed your key to gain entry recently?
In many workplaces, there is a common theme where doors are left on the latch, allowing trusted employees to gain entry faster than you may with a lock and key. However, the issue with this is that it won’t only be those trusted employees who are able to gain entry, but members of the public – or thieves – too. Door access systems allow only certified members of the team to gain access to any part of your workplace Best of all, they make doing so quick and efficient with the simple tap of a fob.
- The size of your team has changed
Whether it has enlarged or become smaller, a change in the size of your team can be reason for a security upgrade. With a smaller business, it can be simple to keep track of movements, but as your business grows, this will inevitably become more challenging. It is important to make sure that any keys and fobs are returned when someone leaves, and entry codes are updated. If you recall former staff members having kept their keys or you know that your codes have remained the same for an extended period of time, it could be time to upgrade your system and change the locks.
