As a business owner, the physical security of your business premises should be a top concern. Ensuring that your staff as well as all your equipment, resources, assets and so on are safe is simply something that must be addressed; the threat of break-ins is still prominent in society.

Today’s security systems are extremely advanced and are designed to provide businesses in all industries with maximum protection. In this guide we’ve listed and explained some of the most reliable security systems available to keep buildings of all sizes safe and secure.

Temperature Screening Thermal Solutions

As businesses across the UK adapt to new realities following the Coronavirus outbreak, the need for innovative and reliable technology is now essential. Workplace confidence and safety has become increasingly important.

With advanced detectors and algorithms, temperature screening thermographic cameras are designed to detect elevated skin-surface temperatures within just one second. Ideal for use in office buildings, factories, stations, airports and other public spaces, numerous people can be detected simultaneously without physical contact. They provide accuracy of up to ± 0.3°C and immediately notify operators of any detected elevated skin surface temperatures.

A variety of temperature screening thermal solutions are available, including static bullet cameras, all in one face terminals and metal detector doorways with integrated thermal cameras.

Access Control Systems

Installing an access control system is the perfect solution if you’re wanting to regulate, monitor and secure who has physical access to your business premises. They enable you to control and log who is entering which area of your building and when.

From small stand-alone key code entry systems to large networked audio/video entry and biometric systems, access control systems utilise the latest technology to provide a sophisticated security solution for your building.

Businesses of all types and sizes benefit from access control systems but they’re particularly suited to larger organisations where certain people may need access to certain areas but not others. Upon installation, the system can be completely tailored to suit your specific requirements.

Providing a whole host of benefits for a business, staff and contents, CCTV is one of the most effective ways of protecting your property. A deterrent to any potential criminals, it is invaluable when it comes to identifying any unwelcomed visitors and threats.

A wide range of CCTV systems with a variety of different features can be purchased, so a solution can be created for you regardless of your budget and requirements.

You can also remotely view your cameras’ live footage on your phone, tablet or laptop wherever you are in the world, giving you greater peace of mind.

Fire & Life Safety Systems

Fire and life safety systems help to keep your staff and property safe by sensing smoke, excessive heat or fire. In a fire emergency, a few seconds could save lives, so it’s critical you have the appropriate fire safety measures in place.

The exact type of fire alarm system you require will depend on the size, age and layout of your building. Popular modern systems include aspirating air fire systems, gas suppression systems and analogue addressable fire alarm systems.

As well as making sure the alarms are installed and working properly, you should also train your staff to ensure they are aware of how serious the alarms are in the event of an emergency.

Intruder Systems

You will most likely hold valuable stock, specialised equipment and plenty of employee possessions at your business property. You’re also likely to hold sensitive customer/client information and even company records and plans. A break-in will inevitably case concerns among your clients and employees, potentially resulting in you losing customers and/or workers.

Intruder alarms help to reduce this risk. Acting as a preventative measure against any lurking intruders, they are one of the simplest – yet most effective – ways of protecting your property. Immediately alerting you should any alarms get triggered, they help to make sure that any problems get resolved quickly and efficiently.

Different types of intruder alarms include door and window sensors (which identify any unauthorised access via doors and windows), motion sensors (which identify any suspicious movement) and shock sensors (which detect an impact or vibration usually caused by a window or door being broken into).
