Making Your Building Less Appealing to Intruders
The security of your business premises is something that should never be compromised. Commercial burglaries cost businesses thousands of pounds, so protecting your business’ possessions and assets should be treated as a priority – even if you hand it over to a security solutions business. If you are too relaxed with this, your premises can easily appear vulnerable and appealing to potential intruders. Even still, having poor or outdated security systems in place will inevitably increase the likelihood of unwanted people targeting you.
Here at Brunel Fire and Security, we are an established Fire and Security Company based in Bristol, supplying the whole of the UK. We have 25 years of experience in providing tailored security and fire solutions to businesses with the business philosophy of understanding each client’s requirements and exceeding their expectations.
Below we have listed some of our top ways for discouraging potential intruders, but if you would like more information on how we can improve your building’s security, or would like a free site survey, be sure to call on 0117 259 1000.
CCTV is one of the most obvious and intimidating visual deterrents. Simply just spotting a camera is enough to make intruders leave, as they know that their every move is being recorded. Our business CCTV camera systems operate 24/7 and will enable you to observe multiple locations around Bristol and the UK using remote monitoring.
Our CCTV can also be used with Infra-red Detectors and Licence Plate Recognition Systems for extra security measures.
What’s more, if the worst were to happen and your premises was broken into, our CCTV footage is all in high-resolution, so you can give it to the police to help find and identify the perpetrators and it can be used in a Court of Law as evidence.
Installing a high-quality intruder alarm into your premises is an extremely effective method of protection. The alarms can be placed wherever you wish and can potentially also be a strong visual deterrent when visible from the outside.
All of our systems here at Brunel conform to the latest European standard, at a level which holds the greatest perceived value across the security industry, by police and insurers. This means that your premises, assets and staff will be as protected as possible.
Lock All Doors and Windows
This may seem obvious, but it can be easy enough to forget. Opportunism is what causes most burglaries and a slightly ajar window or door can be a beacon of light for any passing burglars. All doors and windows should be locked during the night and whenever people are absent from the premises.
Hide All Valuables
Try not to give potential intruders ant indication as to what is inside your building. All expensive valuables should be kept out of sight and security shutters should be down at night.
Motion sensor lights outside the main door can be a good choice if you want to illuminate any potential intruders trying to hide their movements.
The more difficult your premises is to access, the less likely someone is to try and get in. Some exterior measures include:
Perimeter Protection Systems are designed to keep intruders away from your buildings and form your first line of defence.
Access Control allows you to control who has access to your properties using card swipes, coded keypads, proximity card access or biometrics
