3 Ways a Monitored Security System Can Be Beneficial for Your Small Business
When you think of the type of business that has a monitored security system with video capabilities, what comes to mind? Is the first thing that comes to mind a large business, with large facilities and many employees? If so, you aren’t the only one. Many people have a notion that video surveillance systems are best suited for large operations.
However, this isn’t always the case; they can be extremely beneficial to small businesses like yours as well. A monitored security system can do so much to make your life as a small business owner a little bit easier and provide you with the peace of mind that your livelihood is safe and secure. Here are 3 ways that your small business can benefit from the installation of a professionally monitored security system, particularly one with video monitoring capabilities.
1. It can help you keep an eye on routine business activities and monitor customer flow.
Getting deliveries and having building maintenance done is just a part of doing business. And as much as you might like to, it’s just not possible to supervise every visit; because as a small business owner there are so many things that require your attention.
But if you have a professionally installed CCTV system, keeping an an eye on delivery people, maintenance people (and even employees) can be a little bit easier. You can install cameras in more remote areas of your business like stock rooms, storage closets and warehouses. With cameras in these restricted areas, you can make sure that people are where they should be, and if they aren’t and something goes amiss; cameras can provide a record.
Those same strategically placed cameras can also be used to gain some insight into your business patterns and customer service experience. For example, if you are watching the video feed and notice that at certain times of the day you get more customers, it might be helpful to have more employees scheduled at that time. This can help employees feel less stressed by a rush and ensure that customers are getting great service, even when things get a bit hectic.
2. It can help you make sure the building is locked up properly.
Are there times where your employees are responsible for closing up shop for the day? As much as you trust your employees, have you ever found yourself second guessing if they locked up properly and the alarm is set? If you have a professional security system that has remote monitoring capabilities, you can use SupremeConnect to arm your system from anywhere on any device.
Most remote monitoring apps will provide you with a time-stamped log of each system arm and disarm. Now if you want to check and see if your business is safe and secure, you don’t have to drive all the way across town, you just have to pick up your phone to get peace of mind.
3. It’s a second set of eyes watching out for your business.
As a small business owner you are very busy, but at the same time, you want to keep an eye on your business 24/7/365. But that’s just not possible. With a professionally monitored system, you also have your security company looking out for you and your business as well.
