Security solutions for small businesses, your business is your life, and unlike a large corporation, you can’t afford to be the victim of a security breach that could set you back hundreds, or even thousands of pounds. We’ll take a look at some simple solutions that could help you avoid, or mitigate, a security breach.
Defending the perimeter
Your first line of defence is your perimeter, and it’s where any criminal will enter your premises. As a small business, you might not be able to afford a security guard, but with the latest technology you can locate and track intruders 24/7 and in all weathers using RADAR perimeter defence. Modern cameras can track moving people and objects, so there’s no need to operate manually, and you can guarantee you’ll catch every event for use by the police later. It also doubles as a tried and tested method for detecting and reporting dangers of all kinds, from traffic accidents to industrial accidents, in case of liability claims down the line.
Capturing that data is one thing, but managing it is also a challenge. You don’t have the processing power to store it all yourself, or the skills to properly use it – but using a Video Management System takes these tasks off your hands. These systems can track more than 8 cameras at a time (depending on your licence), and can even be programmed to carry out certain actions on detection, including email snapshots and recording. This means you don’t have to monitor it yourself, but you can still get alerts or evidence instantly.
Using what security solutions you have
If you have a modern security system already in place, it’s also a good idea to also have video management software in place as a failsafe against errors or technical issues should the worst happen. With software like our SharpView Manager Professional, you can control all your security features in one place – from the cameras themselves to the backup and review of your footage. They also come with handy features that enable you to easily review ‘events’ such as security breaches as they happened, to detect security flaws or to use as evidence with the police
