Protect Warehouses with Security Systems

Originally posted on 18 November 2019

If your company has a warehouse, I don’t have to remind you that it’s a treasure trove. Warehouses are big buildings full of things a thief could make good money on. The last thing you want is to show up one day to find pallets of goods have been stolen. And if you did, wouldn’t you want the circumstances to at least be in your favor? Let’s take a look at how valuable warehouse security systems are when you’re in charge of a warehouse.

A Lot of Exits Means a Lot of Entrances

Warehouses are big, naturally. The sheer size of a warehouse means there will be a lot of doors on all sides. There are regular, people-sized doors, and big, truck-sized doors. All in all, this makes a lot of opportunities for break-ins. The more doors you have, the higher the chance of one getting left unlocked. Because warehouses aren’t usually built in high-traffic parts of the city, that also means those doors aren’t likely well lit or within view of your neighboring businesses.

So how do you combat the security risk that comes with a lot of entrances? Commercial Access Control Systems. Each door needs an alarm. Even if a manual alarm can be forgotten to be set by an employee, motion sensors that automatically turn on after work hours will remain reliable.

Hiding Spaces

Warehouses are massive and most everything inside of one is large and easy to hide behind. A warehouse is the perfect playground for someone with bad intentions. That’s why security systems are so important.

A search on Youtube reveals how popular it is for people to sneak into places like Costco to hide out overnight. These people are just looking to get views on their videos and don’t have any true malintent. What these videos showcase, however, is that it’s not really that hard to sneak into a warehouse and get away with it. That’s why having proactive employees who keep their eye out as well as sufficient security coverage is so important.

If any of these people had wanted to damage the property or steal things, they could have. Fit your warehouse with proper security in the way of cameras. Even if someone did manage to get away with this, you would have video evidence of it and be able to report it to the police.

Cameras are especially important on the outside of the building. Any vehicles used for transporting stolen goods can be identified. Exterior cameras might even be enough to keep people away in the first place.

Make Theft Harder

The perk with warehouses is that the things stored in them are hard to move easily. Someone can’t just walk in and pick up a pallet of boxes that weighs a ton and walk out with it. Most warehouses, however, have plenty of equipment for doing just that.

If you want to make theft that much harder, ensure you have a secure location in the warehouse for storing pallet jacks, both manual and automatic. Keep the storage area locked up when employees aren’t around and have cameras on it at all times.

From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home.

Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
