Is Your Business Security System Out of Date?
Did you know in 1982, Buckingham Palace was broken into?
If only the Queen had the business security systems of the future.
The security systems of today are packed with way more features than the barbed wire and spikes they were using in London back then.
Could your business fare better than the Royal Palace did decades ago? Are you wondering if your business security system is out of date?
We've come up with a few things to look for to check if your current system is out of date.
Keep reading to find out how you can tell whether or not it's time to give your security system an upgrade.
Your System Is Older Than 20 Years
Some homeowners and business owners get by just fine on the systems they've been using for years.
If the security system has been working consistently fine without trouble, many property owners choose to stay with their current systems.
If there have been business security issues and your system is older than 20 years, however, it may be time to look into an upgrade.
Trends in technology and security go hand-in-hand. We all know how far technology has come compared to 20 years ago, which is why many security companies will ask you how old your current system is.
Older systems also tend to consist of a network of wires. Being a hardwired security system has its risks. The wires could get tampered with, be affected by weather changes, or anything else that might not allow them to work properly.
Modern systems are all wireless, so there's no risk of wire exposure putting your business in jeopardy.
Your System Lacks Modern Capabilities
We've already talked before about older security systems lacking wireless functions.
They're lacking in far more technological potential than that. Let's take a look:
You invested in business CCTV, and you bought the best business security camera. But with outdated systems, you won't be able to see the footage on your phone.
With newer systems, security footage streams are easy to access and you can view specific dates and times. All you need is the app on a separate device you control.
Some older systems may have video, but there are no audio capabilities.
Why do you need to be able to hear what's going on? Having audio can lead to crucial identifying information the authorities can use to find intruders and get remittances.
Modern systems also come with their own software. The key to having your system supported with software is that it can get constantly updated.
There's no more worrying about your system going out of date with software. Developers are constantly working to monitor for flaws and improve existing security system functions.
