Better Security for Commercially Managed Properties

Commercially managed properties, whether retail, office or apartment buildings, are commonly faced with security challenges such as trespassing, loitering and crime. These challenges can deteriorate peace-of-mind and open the door to further crime. Commercial Security Systems are integral for maintaining safety and tranquility.

Understanding and Securing Commercial Properties

Firstly, it’s fundamental for property managers to understand and identify potential threats based on the specific location of the facility, and understand how these threats can impact business operations. A robust Security System for your Business can provide the necessary coverage to deter these potential threats. It’s also important to assess what preventative measures may be working better than others at commercially managed properties in your area.

The Challenges of Commercial Security

Commercially managed properties are often hard to secure due to:

  • Large perimeter areas to monitor and secure
  • Multiple points of entry
  • Unfrequented areas offering privacy or shelter
  • Availability of resources (retail goods, personal property, mail rooms, waste and recycling)
  • Anonymity due to a high volume of occupants and visitors

One proven tactic to minimise threats and liabilities is to keep problems from entering your facility or business. This can be achieved in several ways at the perimeter and building entrances, within entry lobbies, and at stairwells, elevators, and tenant entries. A reliable Business Alarm System can significantly assist in this regard, providing timely alerts and safeguards.

Commercial Alarm Systems and Their Advantages

One of the most frequently sought solutions is to deploy video surveillance cameras, also known as a Business Camera System, which can provide wide area situational awareness. The problem is that cameras don’t prevent crime – they only document it – but only if they’re operational, continuously monitored, and properly placed at the time of the incident. In these situations, the integration of Commercial Alarm Systems with video surveillance can provide a more holistic security solution.

Even the use of security guards has limitations, as they can’t be everywhere or monitor everything at once, are often not properly trained in preventive tactics, and are subject to everyday distractions. Therefore, it’s crucial to also prioritize staff safety in your security planning.
