Whether you manage an apartment complex, an office building, or a retail store, ensuring your building is safe and secure is a top priority. With people constantly coming in and out of your building, it can be hard to keep track of everything going on at once. A catastrophe can occur in only a few minutes, which is why you always want to be prepared in the event of an emergency. These measures can improve building security to keep your occupants safe and protected.
Install Video Surveillance
Loading docks, mailrooms, and shipping areas are commonly vulnerable areas in commercial buildings. While having an alarm system is helpful, video surveillance can beef up your building security even more. Alarm systems will notify the authorities in the event of an emergency, but video surveillance will let you keep a closer eye on things and help identify perpetrators.
Keeping things well-lit at all times of the day can help deter potential intruders. Motion detector lights can help scare away criminals and keep them from trying to access the property at night. The parking lot, entrances, loading docks, and other important areas are good places to focus on adequate lighting. A poorly lit building makes an easier target, so adding additional lighting can go a long way toward bolstering security for your facility.
Hire Security Guards
One way to strengthen security in and around your building is to hire security guards. Whether you have one or multiple guards, having security personnel can deter theft and help occupants feel safe. You may find that you only need to hire security guards at certain parts of the day when the building isn’t occupied or when extra surveillance is required.
