5 Unexpected Ways to Protect Your Business

by | Sep 13, 2022 | Strauss Security

As a business owner, we know that maintaining a secure office space is important to you. Whether it is protecting the safety of your employees, or protecting the bottom line from unnecessary expenses or theft, at Strauss Security we know that a secure office space is essential. There are the obvious places where you have probably already considered for your business including access cards and key fobs to enter doors, security cameras, safes, and locks.

What are the other places that you may not have considered? We want to give you all the tools you need to stay secure before it’s too late. At Strauss Security, we can help meet your obvious security needs for your place of business, as well as helpful security safeguards you never even considered. Here are five ways you may have never considered to use your security system to protect your business:

 

1. Secure Gate Access

If you have a gate to access your parking area, Strauss Security can help secure gate access for your business. Instead of hiring someone to man the gate or leaving it unlocked and unsecure, Strauss Security has the products you need to secure the gate to your business. We can install a access credential system, or an intercom for someone to let visitors and employees in remotely.

 

2. Motion Automated Lights

Outdoor video monitoring can be used for multiple purposes, not just capturing video footage. At Strauss Security, we have a wide range of security cameras to meet your needs, including features that can be enhanced by lights that automatically turn on to thwart intruders.

 

3. Catch Casing Behavior:

Beyond monitoring who is coming and going, outdoor security cameras can provide you with footage that will show you if people are casing your business for a potential robbery. Review video footage for the following behavior:

  • Unfamiliar vehicles that are loitering near your office.
  • Someone you do not recognize taking pictures of your building potentially for illegal research.

 

4. Secure Business Vehicles

If you have business related vehicles that are stored in your parking lot overnight, you will want to take some extra steps to secure these vehicles from break-ins or from being stolen, beyond just locking up. You can install a contact on the doors of your vehicles and have them linked to your security system which can cause an alarm to sound or trigger automatic lights or a recorded message that plays and scares the intruder.

 

5. Dumpster Protection

You probably pay by weight for your dumpster service. If you are experiencing issues with employees adding non business related items, or strangers dumping their trash into your dumpster, Strauss can help you secure your dumpster and, in turn, your bottom line. Here are a few ways we can help to secure your dumpster:

  • Install Strauss contacts to secure the dumpster lid
  • Install a dedicated motion activated camera
  • Install automatic lights and/or a recorded message that will play once triggered to scare them away.
