In the past decade or so, home security has been more important than ever. Even now with the rise of the pandemic, more and more people have been committing crimes. Do you know what is just as, if not more important than residential security, however?
When you own a business, keeping said business safe is of utmost importance. Protecting your investments, your sales, your inventory and your staff are crucial to not running into any serious, life-threatening issues. One of the best ways to ensure that your business security is functioning at its best is by going over what not to do. Here at Smart Vision Plus we would like to talk about the common mistakes business owners make when installing security systems.
Improper Camera Placement
One of the main mistakes business owners run into when installing their cameras is putting them in all the wrong places. Whether your business is small or large, camera placement is vital in being able to spot criminals. Since burglars tend to keep an eye on security cameras and work to find their blind spots, you need to be sure you have as few blind spots as possible when mounting your equipment. Put cameras in corners of rooms where there’s plenty of space so it can keep an eye on every part of your business, inside and out. Hiring a security company can also help with figuring out which places are the best to install your cameras.
Not Being Able to Navigate the System
A situation that commonly takes place when a business hires a security team is that the experts come to install the product and leave right after. While it is great that you have a new security system in effect, you’ll likely be left knowing absolutely nothing about how the system works so you can use it to your best advantage. When you hire professionals, always be sure they have a great emphasis on customer support (such as our team here at Smart Vision Plus), so that they can show you how the product works and how to use it. Regular maintenance after installation is another service many security companies offer so you don’t have to worry about navigating a device on your own.
Not Keeping an Eye on Employees
While most employees wouldn’t dare to put their job or relationships with staff on the line, others do so with little to no remorse if that means they can steal. In some cases, it can even be the people you’d least expect.
When it comes to security systems and their operations, make sure that your employees know as much as they need to know without knowing too much. One slip up in showing a confidential passcode that gives access to all the systems is all it takes. From then on, someone can take advantage of the security devices and steal precious valuables in your store (unbeknownst to you).
