Why Your Business Needs A Commercial Alarm System

If you own a business, you should install a commercial alarm system. Without one, you are leaving your livelihood at risk for theft, vandalism and even risk your own personal financial security. Commercial alarm systems are the first line of defense against intruders and offers around the clock, 24/7 protection. Total Security has over 15 years of experience installing security alarm systems in businesses across Long Island, New York and New Jersey and can help determine the best type of security system for your business.

If you are on the fence about having an alarm system installed, consider that Static Brain reported that in 2015 $50 billion was stolen annually from businesses by employees and that 75% of employees had stolen from their employers at least once. Additionally, their research found that employee theft was responsible for 42.7% of inventory shrinkage and shoplifting was responsible for 35.6% of it.

Thefts can take place both during business hours and during non-business hours, so it is important to protect your business at all times. Having alarms installed on areas of the building containing inventory or safes can be protected by an alarm system. This will help protect your assets. Furthermore, often times just the presence of an alarm system is enough to deter employees or potential thieves from attempting to break in or steal company property.

Commercial alarm systems also help to prevent forced entry, protecting not only your inventory but the safety of your employees as well. An efficient business security system requires you to hire less security guards which means lowered expenses and allows your existing security personnel to perform more efficiently since you will be able to monitor your building and property remotely. We also recommend for all business owners to consider having a video surveillance system installed as an additional security measure against theft.
