We are always on the lookout for better means to protect our properties and things we value.

When it comes to commercial establishments the need for security is even greater because of the valuable assets and the number of people involved. And what better way to protect your commercial establishment than with the help of modern technology?

Yes, we are talking about commercial security systems that provide all-round protection to any office space. From fire alarms to burglar alarms to access control, the scale of protection offered by the system has truly gone up in recent years.

Even a small business with less than 50 employees can easily have a security system installed without breaking the bank.

Those new to security systems often have a number of questions, queries, and doubts regarding this modern technology. Here we attempt to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about commercial security systems.

What is a security system?

Also called life safety system, this is a group of different alarm systems that combine to protect an establishment. Fire alarm systems, burglar alarms, intrusion detection, access control and CCTV cameras are some of the technologies included in a security system. Having such a wholesome system installed gives you immense peace of mind.

Do I need all the systems?

It depends upon how large your establishment is and what kind of protection you want to give priority to. All the systems are available separately such as fire alarm, CCTV camera, and access control. For instance, you may already have one or two of these systems installed.

In that case, you do not need to install the entire security system again. You can just press the button for the individual systems that are not yet installed in your establishment.

Should the system be professionally installed?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes. Only a professional security system company has the right tools to make sure the system is installed properly.

You may install the system yourself or get a nonprofessional to do the job but there is no guarantee that the system is going to work when needs to. The installation is usually included with the purchase of the security system.

Should it be professionally monitored?

The answer to this question is again a yes. It will be terrible if there was a breaking of fire at the establishment and the footage or record or details are not available. In case of power outages, the team monitoring the security system will alert the manufacturer to back up the records.
