Security myths busted! Are your current security measures more effective than a professional security service?
We speak to plenty of clients who think their businesses are already as secure as they can be. But as a professional security service provider, we know there’s always more that can be done. Read these popular security myths and find out why you need to take steps to protect your business.
I have CCTV cameras to deter criminals…
The majority of our clients have CCTV at their premises and although it’s a good start, it cannot compare to having a physical presence on site. CCTV cameras may spot a would-be criminal on your premises, but they can’t communicate or challenge a trespasser. Mobile patrols by professional Patrol & Response Officers deployed at random times are a real deterrent.
Our business is in a gated park with site security…
It’s great to have that level of security for your business, but we find that many clients are unclear of what happens if their alarm activates. Many gated parks have one security guard who may not be able to respond to alarm activations. Their job is quite often to manage the main entrances and monitor CCTV. Having an alarm response service in place provides an additional layer of security for your business.
If an alarm activates, our alarm company will call the Police…
With ever increasing pressure on Police resources, there are many reasons why you should be wary of relying on Police support if your alarm activates. Many clients don’t realise that their security systems must comply with the Security Systems Policy to be eligible for Police callout. They’re also unaware that the Police will only respond once an activation has been ‘confirmed’ or has been witnessed and verified by a third party on the premises. There is also a limit to the amount of ‘false alarms’ the Police will respond to. If your system generates 3 or more false activations in a 12 month rolling period, Police response is withdrawn.
