Small businesses are started on almost every corner, as well as in small rental areas in malls, on a daily basis. All business owners want to make sure that their investments are protected against losses from the public and their own employees. Security systems, security cameras, and burglar alarms are one of the first things that business owners invest in while starting up a business.

Below are some of the benefits that you can get in using a Security system for your small business.
A properly installed security camera can become a huge deterrent to employees to decrease employee theft. This can easily be caught with the use of strategic placement of security cameras in the business. Additionally, the camera system can increase employee productivity and help with customer service. Remember, employees will think they are always being watched so their performance will improve. The system must be used pro-actively so the employees feel that the business owner is always watching or reviewing the video.
Professionally installing a camera system in your business can also deter shoplifting. Placing a Spot Monitor showing customers as they enter your business will go a long way in reducing the amount of shoplifting that goes on in your business. When customers enter your business and see themselves on a spot monitor at the front of the store, they will be less likely to shoplift.
Another obvious purpose of using a security system for your business is to prevent unauthorized entry in your facility. Burglars are always looking to get their hands into your assets. Some burglars simply look for cash left in your register, while others look to steal your inventory, depending on the nature of your business. In rare cases, there are some people who may break in to your business for no added reason at all, other than feeling the thrill. A good burglar alarm, installed by a reputable security company like I-Tech Security can protect you from this activity.
Installing a security system by a licensed installer such as I-Tech Security, can possibly reduce the cost of your insurance premium. Most insurance companies require that businesses install some form of security in their facility. They may provide great discounts on monthly insurance payments to those who have security systems installed.
Additionally, there are also many people who make fraudulent claims against businesses. These claims can be made by both customers and by your own employees. With a visible CCTV security camera system there is less likelihood that such a false claim will be made. By using surveillance cameras correctly, you will be able to check the validity of any claim made against you.
Small business security systems improve the overall business operations, efficiencies and profitability of a business. It will also give you, the business owner, Less Stress and Peace of Mind!

  1. The point that you made about how installing a camera system can deter shoplifting. It sure seems like there are a lot of benefits that come with a commercial security system. I will have to ask my boss to add these services to our office to keep the premises safer.

  2. I think that every business should have a security system of some sort. The three obvious benefits I thought of were detering shoplifting, break-ins, and employee theft. However, you have even more great benefits! I hadn’t even thought about how it would reduce insurance too.

  3. I didn’t realize that installing a security system could lower the cost of your insurance premium. It is a way of reducing risk which would definitely help your provider have more confidence that they wouldn’t have to pay you for any damages or theft. Maybe we’ll have to look at installing a security system, especially considering the rise in crime we have been seeing around our neighborhood over the past few months.

  4. I liked that you pointed out how insurance companies require businesses to have a system in place and discount businesses that have them. Insurance can be expensive, and getting a discount for having security would be a great bonus. If someone was thinking of starting a business, I think getting a security system would have multiple benefits.

  5. What I appreciate the most was how you said that proper installation of security cameras will surely reduce the chances of employees stealing for the company. That’s something that really caught my attention because last week, my brother talked me about a theft that occurred in his business. He was suspecting that one of his employees did it because the main and backdoors showed no signs of forced entry. I think having a security system installed will help him a lot in the future. Thanks. I’ll tell him about this.

  6. I thought it was interesting that most insurances require business to install a security system, and that they provide discounts for having one. My friend is working on starting up a small business and wants to learn all he can. I think this article would really help him prepare and save money.

  7. I like how you said that with a security system in place it will be harder for people to claim things. Being able to know with absolute certainty that your business will be a safe place for you and your customers would be invaluable. That would also do a lot to help you save some money as well because you wouldn’t have to worry about getting sued or something like that.
