The Checklist That Covers All Your Commercial Security Bases

September 6th, 2019

All it takes is a short look at today’s statistics to see just how important commercial security really is. United States retailers lose upwards of $50 billion dollars each year due to shrinkage and external theft like shoplifting, 90% of companies surveyed by The National Retail Federation have been the victim of organized retail crimes, and millions of Americans fall victim to identity theft stemming from data breaches each year. With these three statistics alone, you can see quite quickly just how at risk today’s businesses are. 

Commercial security helps to cover all of your bases, and helps you to be less likely to become a victim of commercial crime. When it comes to commercial security, today’s business should be embracing the new technologies available to them to improve their security, but they may not be sure where to start. 

Breaking Down Your Commercial Security Checklist 

A checklist to work with will show you just what bases you need to cover when it comes to your commercial security. Key points on your security checklist are: 

  1. Your interior security – The best place to start with your commercial security is right inside of your business. This is where all the commotion is like to be taking place, and this is where you’ll keep all of your most valuable assets. Security cameras and access control systems can work to provide safety and security in your interior spaces. They can be placed in high risk areas like near cash boxes or in supply rooms, and they keep track of all goings on while making sure only authorized individuals are allowed inside.
  2. Exterior security – With your interior security taken care of, it’s time to consider your exterior security. Leaving doors locked when you leave simply isn’t enough in today’s modern world, so extra security measures should be taken to ensure unauthorized individuals and criminals don’t make their way inside during off-hours. Commercial security cameras will keep watch over your premises while you’re not around, and they provide evidence should a break-in occur.
  3. Employee security training – Your employees are your greatest asset, and they’re also key to keeping your business safe. Training employees on security protocol and making sure they know how to make use of your security layers is important to ensuring security at your business each and every day. With trained employees that know the importance of security, you can rest assured that your entire team is working together to keep their workplace 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!"
