Use Sonitrol Integrated Verified Security TechnologyProtecting your business should be one of your main priorities. So where do you start, and what steps do you take to install a security system that will really work well for your business?

Here are four security strategies to employ to ensure your business is kept safe and secure at all times. 

1. Combine CCTV Video Surveillance & Audio Detection

CCTV and internet-based digital video technology are the most common ways to secure your business premises, via access to video monitors and your mobile phone. But what makes a business security system even more effective, is the combination of audio and video surveillance. This formidable security technology combination provides a significant boost to the security of your business, and should be considered by businesses of all types and sizes.

Audio detectors can be installed all around your facility, in the most vulnerable and strategic locations, where burglars are most likely to enter - doors and windows, even through walls and the roof.

The audio detector senses a variety of sounds that might signify a potential break-in. The goal is to give criminals far less time to do what they came to do, and of course, to try to stop them before there’s any theft, or property damage.

For example, when using a Sonitrol audio and video security system, when an audio alarm is triggered, our 24/7 monitoring station is immediately alerted. This is not only very proactive in terms of having verified audio proof of an actual break-in actually happening, we hear them as they are attempting to gain entry. The police are then notified and because of the priority response local police departments give to this type of Sonitrol verified alarm, the police will be at the scene within minutes and they usually quickly make an arrest.

SonaVision is Monitored video that is primarily used to monitor exterior compounds and construction sites. Once an intrusion is detected, Police are then dispatched to the scene.

2. Fire Detection Business Security Strategies

Unfortunately, fire can be more common than you think. Regardless of your insurance coverage on the building, you may not have the resources to replace everything you lose. You need an integrated security system that not only senses smoke and heat sensors, but also monitors water flow, temperature and ducts.

3. Access Control Business Security Strategies

Standard locks will certainly keep out a variety of people, but having a managed access security system with secure access cards helps speed up the authorized movement of people around your business, while keeping it safe and secure. This increase in convenience can cut down on expenses and increase efficiency.

Our Sonitrol managed access system, monitors the comings and goings of your employees at all hours of the day and alerts you when there’s a breach in security, so you can rest assured your company is safe even when you can’t be there to personally see to it.

4. Combining These Security Strategies Into One Integrated Security System

Finally, for total safety, security and protection, you will need a security solution that is fully integrated, with all the technology talking and listening together.

When 98% of alarms triggered are false, it inevitably leaves police officers and firemen without that sense of urgency. Our Sonitrol alarm systems are fully integrated to verify all threats before actually calling the authorities, which means on average, a Sonitrol verified alarm system gets a response time within 3 to 4 minutes - and that's what security is all about.
