Protecting your commercial property from intruders should be at the top of every business owner’s list. There are several options for you to consider when adding protection to your commercial property. Make sure you have all of the necessary information about each before making an informed decision. Here are some of the best ways for you to protect your property.
Cameras: From simple to sophisticated cameras, there are several options for you that will help you better protect your property. While, cameras are great for protecting your commercial property, this form of protection typically only allows you to record criminal acts that are already taking place. You can then use that footage to try and find the culprit. Sometimes having cameras on the premises will deter a criminal from acting in the first place, but not always.
Cost: When it comes to the cost of this form of protection for your commercial property, it can vary widely. It really depends on how many cameras you plan to install and how high-end those cameras will be. It is best to get a quote from a professional security camera company in order to determine what will work best for you and your business.
Dog: A guard dog can be an affordable form of security for your commercial property, but it does come with some risks. There is always the possibility that even the best dog will attack someone and leave you with a lawsuit.
One advantage of a guard dog is that it isn’t as much of a passive form of security as a camera. Many thieves and vandals won’t want the hassle of dealing with a guard dog. The loud barking and growling can scare them. If not, the dog will usually prevent the crime from happening by acting aggressively toward the culprit.
Cost: The cost for this form of protection is relatively cheap. You will just need to pay for the typical care of a dog, such as veterinary care, food and water.
Fence: A fence can work as a good barrier from outsiders and crime. Depending on the type of fence, it can work well to keep those you don’t want in your business on the outside.
Cost: The initial installation can be costly, but there isn’t typically much upkeep cost with a fence. Some criminals will avoid the hassle of getting around the fence altogether. A high, sturdy fence is the best for protecting commercial property. For more information, please call us at Geo Brother’s Fence for a quote on what will work best for you and your business.
