When assessing how to secure business premises, the key to adequately protecting staff, as well as stock and equipment, is to create several layers of security to provide an early warning system that will alert management to the presence of any unwanted intruders.
A business owner that invests in a layered security system buys valuable time during an emergency, time that could literally diffuse serious crimes like burglaries and armed robberies by stopping intruders in their tracks. Layered security results in an early alarm activation and gives staff and management more time to press a further panic button and get staff to safety to avoid a confrontation and potential physical injury.
Layered security is about placing as many barriers between intruders and the business’ staff and valuables as possible. These barriers may include:
- CCTV street surveillance cameras as part of a secure business precinct project
- Internal CCTV surveillance cameras
- Electric fencing linked to the alarm system
- Outdoor passive infrared (PIR) detector beams
- Glass-smashing sensors on windows
- Access control and other related services
Every area of a business needs to be professionally assessed to ensure vulnerable points are adequately secured, from the driveway gates, which may need an anti-gate-crashing kit, to offices, storerooms, production areas, and even the roof, which must not be neglected as it is a fairly common point of entry for burglars.
A business alarm system can be set up with anything from a simple eight zone panel, to a more complex 168 zone system, to ensure that in the event of a burglary the control centre will immediately identify the exact offices and outdoor areas that intruders have breached.
