Security Tech That Secures Your Business’ Safety

Written by Chloe Harwood

Apart from money business owners want one thing: security from intruders. Security is a major issue if you run and own a business because it can affect your future. One break in can set you back years, and some businesses never recover. For this reason, it is important to try and make your business impenetrable or as near as possible. Obviously, you will have the basics like an alarm system and a security guard, but they might not be enough. To find out what is enough, take a look at the list below.

Security Drones

Maybe the word ‘drones’ is a bit excessive because you probably won’t be able to afford more than one. Drones in any form are expensive, and security drones are no exception. Still, one can make all the difference if you believe Rotor Copters. Whoever you believe, you should know that drones are fully equipped with cameras and can chase away thieves. This is enough to tell you that it is a great way of cultivating proof and responding quickly to threats. Plus, it means you don’t have to put your security team is as much danger. Your job, if you want one, is to pick one that is effective and within your budget.

Motion Detection Cameras

CCTV cameras are all the rage because they scare intruders away with frightening efficiency. However, the basic option is only a good option if you can afford to run the cameras at all times. Otherwise, they might miss something important and potentially dangerous. Motion detection cameras are different. As the names suggests, they only start recording when they detect movement. That means they can conserve energy (money) as well being effective deterrents. Dummy cameras are also another option if you have a tight budget. They are a risk, but they are worth it in a lot of cases.

Security Light

While the cat’s away the mice shall play, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Most thieves will operate with the cover of darkness because light is their enemy. So, you have to light up your premises if you want to deter them from a standard breaking and entering. A security light on a timer is a great option because it randomly lights up the area. If you have these inside and outside, it will give the impression that the premises is constantly occupied. At the least it will give them something more to think about before they try and enter the building.


Biotechnology is tech that uses things such as a retina scan or a fingerprint scanner. Although it sounds over the top, it is far from the case. Lots of people can just enter a building if they please. All they have to do is talk to the receptionist and they are inside. With a fingerprint scanner, though, they need to provide a valid set of prints. Even if they do get in, you will have their prints on file.

It sounds like something from a James Bond movie, but it effective for a business of any size.
