Different Types of Commercial Security Equipment

Understand the different types of commercial security equipment to ensure the security of your business. Have a look at the different types of commercial security equipment available:

CCTV Cameras

  • CCTV (closed-circuit television) systems will protect your interior and exterior property with video surveillance. Only authorized users can check the video stream on CCTV. You can not only observe the live data, but also save it. Cameras are placed in strategic locations to ensure the business is protected and also to monitor any fraudulent activities. Some types of CCTV cameras are:

  • Dome Camera: Shaped like a dome with a combination of camera, lens and ceiling mount

  • Bullet Camera: Shaped like a bullet which protects the camera and lens

  • Day/Night Camera: Best used for indoor and outdoor environments with low light conditions

Access Control Systems

  • An access control system helps keep track of who goes in and out of your commercial building. This system is easy to install and can be customized as per your needs. Access control systemscan also improve your business and keep you safe. An access control system can include:

    • Card readers

    • Door controllers

    • Key tags

    • Battery back-up systems

Alarm Systems 

  • Alarm systems offer extra security by monitoring your property remotely and detecting crime. Along with alarm systems, install alarm-monitoring services that alert authorities during an emergency. Alarms systems are usually hardwired or wireless.

Where Should CCTV Cameras Be Placed for Better Security

  1. Isolated Areas

    Areas such as dumpsters or parking lots are important strategic locations for installing cameras. The occurrence of vandalism and theft is quite often in these areas.

  2. Cameras in Hallways and Stairwells

    For security purposes, installing video cameras in hallways, stairwells or bar hallways near bathrooms will provide you access to unauthorized access or vandalism.

  3. Entry and Exits

    Keeping track of who enters or leaves your premises can be a great security detail. You can allow only authorized users to enter the property. Take special care while installing the camera to avoid dull or blackened surveillance.

  4. Transaction Points

    If your business involves monetary transactions, install security cameras at all points, including cash registers.

Uses of CCTV Cameras

Video surveillance 24/7 will provide you with a peace of mind and ensure your business is safe and secure. Other benefits of using CCTV cameras are:

  1. Evidence

    A CCTV camera will record any unfortunate crimes at your workplace and you will see what went on exactly. With commercial security in place, the number of fraudulent claims will be reduced as you will have evidence in place.

  2. Prevent Theft

    CCTV cameras can deter theft and can prevent losses of merchandise or supplies.

  3. Reduction in Vandalism

    Security cameras can also prevent vandalism, so the business and property are safe.
