Does your small business need a security system?

Having a small business means wearing a lot of hats. One, which is often overlooked, is that of Head of Security. Sure, many think to have an alarm system to protect from break-ins, but is that really all you need? Do you need to put access controls in place? What about the ability to digitally record your building, both inside and out? Finally, have you considered most business theft actually comes from within?

Owen Security Solutions has been helping businesses of all sizes with their security needs for over 40 years. Our highly-trained consultants can survey your business environment, audit current security measures, and help you develop a customized plan designed to meet your unique needs.

There are some things to consider when planning on a security system for your small business.

Insurance and Regulations

Fire alarmThere is more to protecting your building and assets than just stopping a would-be burglar. Your system should also be monitoring for any possibility of fire and carbon monoxide threats. Not only will this give both employees and customers an increased sense of safety, but also it will likely save you on your insurance premiums. Keeping up with and understanding the many fire and/or life safety codes that exist is our responsibility. We’ll make sure you have all the latest safeguards in place, so you don’t have to!

Employee Theft

As mentioned above, most business-related theft is committed by current or former employees. According to recent statistics gathered by the FBI, employee theft is one of the fastest growing areas of crime in the United States. It’s estimated that almost $40 billion dollars of reported losses takes place annually from theft of goods, money or other assets. Let us show you how we can mitigate your losses and create an environment that keeps the good people honest and the bad ones from being able to harm your business. From providing video monitoring and recording, to creating access controls for sensitive areas of your business, to making sure your emergency exits are secured and everything in between, our consultants have the experience to help you prevent theft before it occurs.

24/7 Monitoring

You and your staff already work enough hours, satisfying your customers and building for the future. You should not have to worry about your business when you are closed at night or over the weekend. With our state-of-the-art security systems and 24/7 monitoring, we can become your virtual security team. And if you or others need to work late or pull one of those all-weekend-brainstorming-sessions, we can put a silent alarm system in place to protect against the possibility of an armed intruder.

Video Surveillance and Recording

Having the ability to surveil all of the entries and exits, as well as sensitive areas within your business, and to keep a recording is crucial to securing your work environment. Our monitoring can integrate into your video network, allowing you to watch for unusual activity when your business is closed. In the event of a crime, whether from internal theft, a late-night smash-and-grab or a day-time hold-up, having a record of the event is vital to any police investigation and essential to bring the perpetrators to justice in short order. It almost goes without saying, but visible cameras are a huge deterrent to both criminals and employees who might be tempted to steal from you.

At Owen Security Solutions, we’ve made it our mission to keep you, your customers, your assets and your facility safe and sound. We would love the chance to sit down with you and do a full assessment of your current security measures and offer solutions for improving and updating your existing plan. Or, if you are a brand new business, let us meet with you before your grand opening to make sure your facility has the necessary security measures in place, giving you, your employees, and your customers peace of mind from day one.
