Managing a business or other commercial property on top of your own home can be challenging. There’s twice as much to do to ensure all of your real estate holdings are well-protected and kept in good condition.
Fortunately, with modern improvements in technology come more effective ways to ensure your buildings are always as safe as possible. Combine these essential security measures with the latest commercial smart technology to protect your business and ease your mind!
Prioritize entry points.
If criminals and other potential threats can’t get in and out of your building, the risk of burglary, vandalism, and other damage to your commercial property is significantly reduced. Evaluate your entry points—including all doors and windows—to make sure you’re doing everything you can to strengthen them.
Secure all locks, seal windows, install solid doors, or even hire a guard to oversee who comes and goes. Smart control systems are another effective, cost-efficient solution for restricting and monitoring who has access to your building.
Maintain your building exterior.
Neglected properties look like easier targets to burglars and vandals. Keep up with your landscaping (or enlist a service to do it for you) to give the impression that your building is constantly looked after and well-cared for. This means trimming the trees and bushes, mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, and maintaining all sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways.
You’ll also want to invest in a high-end outdoor lighting system for your commercial property, to both expose and deter criminal activity.
Advertise your security system.
Installing a quality alarm and video surveillance system is security 101 when it comes to protecting your commercial property. Enhance the effect of this technology by making it clear to passersby that it’s in use.
Display signs or stickers from your security company, advertising the fact that your building is well-protected by them. It’s not a bad idea to set up a few visible security cameras either.
Taking these measures to secure your commercial property will make it less appealing to the wrong kind of people, and more appealing to potential clients, customers, and occupants.
