Commercial Security System Setup: 7 Key Topics to Discuss with Potential Providers

Most business owners agree that a commercial security system is a must-have for their property. Those who are new to the idea of choosing a security provider must to do their research first and take the necessary time to make an informed decision. Not all options and providers are the same, with factors extending beyond the basics, such as cost and experience. If you are an interested business owner, make sure you thoroughly question each prospective service provider before entering into an official agreement. Consider these important factors as you compare options and make your decision:

1) Equipment rental versus ownership Many companies simply rent the equipment needed, such as cameras, alarms, and control panels. As they gain or lose customers, pieces and parts can be moved from one property to another during those transitions. Others sell the necessary equipment to business owners, eliminating any concern over pre-owned equipment performance.

2) Locally owned or national brand Business owners have their choice of companies to work with, ranging from internationally recognized brands to smaller scale companies that work only in a specific region. The movement towards supporting local businesses has grown tremendously in the U.S. over the last decade. More and more individuals are supporting these smaller organizations and it is certainly something for business owners to consider as well, especially if you own a small, local business yourself.

3) References and reputation in the local area Beyond simply understanding an organization's coverage area, it is important to consider local reputation for the brand. Talk to your neighbors, friends, or co-workers about the provider they use in personal and/or business applications. Ask if they have any recommendations or feedback - either positive or negative - that may influence your final decision.

4) Availability and course of action in case of emergency You will want to know that you have got the support you need in case of an emergency, since that is what having a commercial security system is all about. Make sure they have a strong 24/7 monitoring system in place. Also, ask questions about how they respond to signs of an emergency. For example, do they respond to all potential emergencies in the same way, regardless of time of day? Who do they call in different situations? What if they cannot reach you in the event of an emergency?

5) The types of emergencies they monitor In addition to burglaries or break-ins, do they offer services to monitor for signs of a fire or other disaster? If so, do they provide all the necessary equipment, such as smoke alarms? And what are the additional costs associated with the varying levels of coverage?

6) Your ability to be involved Some business owners take a more hands-on approach to their business' physical location and daily happenings. If this sounds like you, you may want to be able to check in on what is happening with your commercial security system via the use of video cameras or activity monitoring. Talk to service providers about how you can be as involved or not involved as you choose.

7) Customization options to meet your exact needs Your setup must be fitted to meet your particular needs in order to give you the peace of mind and overall performance you deserve. For example, if you have a dozen employees, do each of them need their own passcode? If you are frequently away from the location, you may need remote access to key information via a secure app or other tool. Make sure you get more than an off-the-shelf product when it comes to something as important as securing your company's assets.
