Why Every Business Can Benefit from a Security System

July 10th, 2019

Every business or commercial property can benefit from having the right security system in place for different reasons. When you take the steps to protect your business, you are also protecting your employees, your assets, and your investment as well. A security system is beneficial for a business of any size.

Here are a few reasons to invest in a security system for your business or commercial property:

Ensure Employee Safety

Without your employees, your business wouldn't run as smoothly as it does; therefore, their safety should be one of your top priorities as a business owner. Providing a safe working environment is one of the best things you can do for each of your employees.

Fire Safety

In addition to security, you should also have a viable evacuation plan in place. In addition, you need a proper fire alarm system to alert you. Fires can spread incredibly quickly and can destroy your physical property and even sensitive data. Human life can also be lost and is irreplaceable. A fire and alarm safety system is a good first step when ensuring a safe workplace.

Burglary and Vandalism

Shoplifting, burglary, and vandalism can be costly for a business. Having the right security system in place can help deter this kind of criminal activity and prevent intruders from breaking in or damaging your property. Video surveillance and CCTV allows you to monitor the property and always have an eye on what is going on.

Employee Theft

Employee theft costs businesses significant money each year. To prevent this or catch them in the act, your video surveillance system can help. It not only acts as a deterrent for future crime, but it can also help you identify which of your employees is responsible. 

Employee Access

Many other buildings such as schools and financial institutions use electronic access so they can control who gains access to the building. Card keys and automatic door locking mechanisms for every point of entry in your business can help monitor employee access. It can even generate access and activity reports, so you know who is coming and going at all times. 

Protect Yourself from Lawsuits

Worker's compensation claims and slip and falls are common among businesses. However, some people try to commit fraud. For these people, having the right surveillance system in place can help prove you weren't in the wrong and can save your business from a lawsuit.

It can also help protect your employees and your business when it comes time to sort out any workplace incidents with other employees concerning worker's compensation claims as well.

As you can see, there are several reasons a commercial property can benefit from having the right surveillance system in place. Not only can they protect one of your biggest investments, but they also serve as good deterrents to help prevent any crime or incidents in the future while keeping yourself and your employees safe.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
