Physical Security Tools Every Business Can Use

Physical Security Tools Every Business Can Use

Many small and medium-sized businesses don’t consider making physical security investments if they already have some type of workable solution in place. The problem is that there have been a lot of innovative moves made that would make those investments strategically smart at the time. So, while a physical security upgrade may not be a priority for your business, we thought we’d go through some of the tools used, and how they have improved. 

Security Systems

The company that needs more security at your place of business, you may want to consider installing a full-featured security system. Today’s systems have all types of setups that have customizable options to fit your business’ needs. Systems fitted with motion detectors, door alarms, and full-featured access control systems--and work through your business’ wireless network--can be a great way to deter would-be thieves and protect your business’ most important assets. 

Security Cameras

The innovations to security camera systems have been pretty amazing recently. If your business installed its camera system over five years ago, you should really think about getting an upgrade. Today’s systems come with high definition (HD) cameras with megapixel IP lenses that capture everything that you need and won’t leave you guessing about what you're watching on replay. 

Other improvements include camera systems with wide dynamic range (WDR), digital signal processing (DSP), and noise cancelling. These features help these HD systems create cleaner images in a long list of different environments. Some systems support low-light operations for use in times when businesses are closed. 

Access Control

We typically talk about access control as a type of security used to protect your business’ digital assets, but the same principle applies to your physical security. Access to certain parts of your business might not be right for all of your staff. If you have parts of your business that you want to keep secure, there are many different access control systems available. 

These systems are a combination of automatic locking and authentication systems that are placed on doors. There are mechanical, digital, and biometric systems to choose from. While you may pay more for biometrics, they have been proven to secure assets from theft and keep people who aren’t authorized to be in a place, out. 

Security is always going to be a critical part of your business, and i-medIT has the certified technicians to help you secure your entire business. Give us a call today at 630-549-6199 to have a conversation about getting the security you need to secure your assets.
