Signs Your Commercial Security System is Outdated

Signs Your Commercial Security System is Outdated

Posted on March 8, 2019

Security is key for keeping your company’s employees and bottom line secure.  Commercial security systems such as access control, surveillance cameras and alarm monitoring can help your institution protect itself from physical break-ins, vandalism, or ex-employee retaliation.

As technology evolves, older security systems become obsolete making them harder to maintain and keep in good operating condition.  Listed below are several signs it’s time to upgrade your expired security equipment.

You Do Not Receive Text or Email Notifications

The age of mobility is upon us. Cell phone and email notifications are the easiest means of communication and are usually the first point of contact when something goes wrong within commercial security.

With DMP Virtual Keypad, customers have the ability to access a number of security system keypad functions remotely via cellular or network connection. The App allows users to remotely control lights, thermostats, door lock, appliances, cameras, garage doors, and more via an easy-to-use interface along with standard features such as arming/disarming, checking system status, area arming and output control. Virtual Keypad coupled with a monitoring agreement from The Security Center, Inc. gives you the peace of mind of knowing your assets are secured.

Your Surveillance Cameras Have Poor Resolution

Video surveillance systems are key to keeping employees and property secured. If your business currently has video surveillance installed, you’re already a step ahead of many competitors. However, if your footage is in black and white or image is grainy, it might be time to upgrade your equipment. Technology has come a long way within the past several years making surveillance cameras and equipment more affordable than ever. Regardless of your budget, The Security Center, Inc. has solutions to accommodate all your needs.

You Lack Remote Viewing Capabilities

Remote viewing capabilities that communicate between your cameras, systems and mobile devices make keeping your business security simple. If you’re having to take time to review a monitor rather than pulling up footage straight from your computer, then this is a clear sign that your safety is relying on outdated technology.

You’re Still Using a Key to Enter Your Building

Sure, keys are reliable, but they can easily be duplicated. Many businesses in the financial and private sectors have begun to switch over to access control to ensure their knowledge of who goes in and out of their building.  

There are several reasons why your business should install an access control system, but the biggest one is the fact that they help drastically reduce theft and similar problems.
