Make Sure Your Retail Business is Safe

The security that is required to keep a retail business safe year-round is critically important. Loss prevention strategies have to be considered, employees vetted, and of course, your customers must be kept safe.

However, many business owners don’t think that they afford a business security system. Thanks to the capabilities of the internet, costs have been kept in check. Also, it’s important to keep in mind just how much you’ll save each year by using security systems: there will be fewer instances of theft and shrinkage, and you’ll be able to monitor your retail business from far away if you need to travel.

Retail Security from Nearby or Far Away

A retail business requires owners and managers to create a safe space for employees, customers, and business partners. You’ll also want to guard against theft and prevent break-ins and vandalism. As long as you have a smart phone or tablet, you can keep tabs on your business when you’re on your property or thousands of miles away. A complete commercial retail security system should include:

  • Interactive systems. Using an interactive security system for a retail store manages your gates, locks, and doors. You can use your phone or tablet to simply open your locks to let an employee or package delivery person in, and with a simple tap on your screen, lock the door again when it’s time to close your store.
  • Video monitoring and surveillance. Closely monitor the interior and exterior of your business with a security system that allows you to see exactly what is happening at all times. These cameras can be motion activated and remote controlled, and you can view the video from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smart phone.
  • Burglar Alarm, fire alarm and life safety systems. We know that you can’t be at your retail business all the time—and we know that you can’t monitor video yourself 24 hours a day. That’s why it’s so important to have an integrated fire alarm system, with smoke detectors, heat detectors, and floor detectors that will give you, your employees, and your customers early warning to any problems that are on your retail floor.

Security Systems of America is happy to work with you and your budget to design any of these systems that will keep your retail business secure. We offer easy, one-stop shopping for all your security and life safety needs.

Security Tips for the Season

Seasonal Security Tips

You may think that summer is the most typical time for a home burglary to take place, but unfortunately, burglaries happen year-round.

That’s because this is the time of year when people leave to go down South for a few months, or go on vacation for a few weeks to a warm island. But while you’re away, thieves will dream up ways to get into your home or business.
