How to Prevent Overnight Theft with Commercial Alarm Systems

How to Prevent Overnight Theft with Commercial Alarm Systems

When you vacate the premises of your warehouse, manufacturing plant, factory, or other commercial property, you are leaving behind valuables, from computers and televisions to material components and products. Without surveillance, security camera installation, and alarms, these attractive items sit unattended, leaving the property and important business assets susceptible to theft and burglary. Businesses throughout the Greater Toronto Area need to seek high-level security technology and systems to keep their property safe and secure. Because no two properties are the same, the experts at Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. help business managers and owners tailor their security systems to maximize coverage and minimize security risks. 

Read on to learn how to prevent theft after hours at your business with commercial alarm systems

Entry Point Alarms

How to Prevent Overnight Theft with Commercial Alarm SystemsAlarms installed at the entry points of your property fortify the building's defences, promptly notifying authorities of any attempts at forced entry with real-time smartphone notification, local alarm sounding, and alerting your local monitoring station. By immediately signalling an unauthorized entry, entry point alarms serve as a deterrent and a rapid response mechanism, enabling quick action to prevent theft or damage. Glass break alarms complement this array by explicitly targeting the breach of windows or glass doors, a common entry point for burglaries. These alarms detect the unique frequency of breaking glass, ensuring that any such attempt triggers an immediate alarm and response. These commercial alarm systems can be installed at all points of entry, including employee exits, reception, and other places. 

Control Access Systems for Your Business 

Control access systems are the foundation of this security strategy. They meticulously regulate who enters and exits the premises, mitigating the risk of unauthorized access. These systems can range from simple keypad entry methods to advanced biometric solutions, ensuring only authorized personnel can access sensitive areas within a facility. Similarly, motion detection systems play a pivotal role in security, leveraging advanced sensors to monitor any unexpected movement within the property after hours. These detectors act as silent sentinels, ready to alert security personnel to any potential intrusions.

Flood Detection Alarms to Protect Your Property

The integration of flood detection alarms adds another layer of protection, safeguarding against water damage that could potentially harm assets or disrupt operations. By detecting the early signs of flooding, whether from natural disasters or internal failures, these alarms allow for prompt intervention to minimize damage. These diverse systems—control access, motion detection, entry alarms, glass break alarms, and flood detection—form a robust security network crucial for protecting commercial properties from a wide range of risks, ensuring peace of mind for business owners and stakeholders alike.

Glass Break Detection To Prevent Window Intrusion

Glass break detection systems are essential to a comprehensive commercial security strategy designed to identify the unique sound frequency of breaking glass. When installed in environments with large glass windows or doors, these detectors provide an immediate alert to security personnel or a central monitoring service in the event of an attempted break-in through glass entry points. This capability is critical for deterring intruders who might try to gain entry by shattering glass, offering an added layer of protection that complements motion detectors and entry alarms. By ensuring that any attempt to breach a property through its most vulnerable points is promptly addressed, glass break detectors play a pivotal role in maintaining the integrity and security of a commercial space.

Integrate with Building Automation Systems

Integrating a Building Automation System (BAS) with your commercial alarm system can significantly enhance theft prevention in commercial buildings. By incorporating security features with the automation of lighting, access control, and surveillance systems, a BAS offers a sophisticated approach to safeguarding a property.

Lighting control is another feature of BAS that contributes to theft prevention. By automating lighting schedules or triggering lights based on motion detection, a BAS ensures that dark areas within and around the building are well-lit, reducing the likelihood of unnoticed intrusions. Well-lit environments are known to discourage thieves, who prefer operating under the cover of darkness.
