4 Things to Consider When Buying a Business Security System

The world of commercial business security continues to improve and grow. And while these advancements create more solutions than ever before, they also pose a problem for business owners: what business security system should I buy? It’s not an easy question to answer, at least at first. But by understanding your needs and knowing what products are available, you can come to an informed decision. Here are just a few things to consider when buying a business security system.

1. Type of System

While the types of cameras are important in your business security system, you also need to decide what type of systems you want to buy. These are more than just cameras; you can get protection for just about anything you deem necessary. Some of the types of security systems aside from surveillance include:

  • Intrusion detection, which trips an alarm due to motion sensors, heat sensors, or carbon monoxide sensors.
  • System monitoring options, which allows a third-party to access your surveillance system and monitor it if you don’t have the time or resources to do it yourself.
  • Wireless or hard-wired options, which can give you more flexibility to install cameras, as well as adhere to a budget.

2. Cloud or Central Recording

One of the greatest advancements in business security is the ability to monitor cameras and other security systems from anywhere in the world. IP cameras, wireless cameras, and even hard-wired cameras now come with the ability to watch footage from anywhere in the world as long as you have a hard-wired connection.

While you can always opt for a security system that stores footage onsite, a cloud-based security system provides another degree of protection, improved monitoring, and the inability of thieves, vandals, or employees to destroy valuable footage.

3. Find the Right Vendor

If you want to save extra money on your business security system, you can always install the camera system yourself. However, this can pose problems in terms of installation, camera placement, and functionality if you’ve never installed a system before.

For over 28 years, our company have helped businesses secure their assets.  We’ve helped many customers over the years correct many mistakes they made when deciding to install their own.  This is always more costly when compared to a professionally installed surveillance camera system.

Instead of going the DIY route, finding the right vendor like Texas Surveillance and Security is probably the better option. Most companies offer a guarantee, provide adequate consultation, and can get the job done quickly so that you can do what you do best: take care of the day-to-day operations of your business.

Leave the business-grade surveillance camera systems to contractors like ourselves who understand it the most.

4. Warranties

Warranties are always an important facet of any business asset. Without a warranty, a problem with your system can adversely affect your funds or even raise your insurance rates if you have to file a claim due to damage.

Before you pick a particular business security system or choose a vendor, see what types of warranties are available. This can help you avoid a potential catastrophe down the road. Give us a call to discuss your security plans, many Texas clients depend on our company and we have served the area for over 28 years.
