As a business owner, you’re likely concerned with protecting your livelihood. Even if you’ve invested in a top-of-the-line security system, here are four reasons why you should ensure your property is monitored 24/7.
1. To support your hardware
Selecting and installing the right kind of hardware is crucial to ensuring your property remains secure. However, it’s just as important to use this hardware to its full potential and make sure it can’t be bypassed. This means taking advantage of integration features and, crucially, of the ability for the most modern integrated system to be monitored and managed remotely. This way, the monitoring team can react to a breach or malfunction.
2. To benefit from rapid response
In the event something happens, be it intruders gaining access to your premises or a fire starting, 24/7 monitoring will ensure that help can be sent quickly. And, depending on your equipment, some monitoring services can provide updates regarding a number of things including burst pipes, temperature changes in storage areas and more. This is the best way to ensure a small problem doesn’t become a major headache.
3. To save money
If you’d like to pay less for your insurance premiums, then a 24/7 monitoring system may be a good way to reduce them. While this will depend on the specific insurance company and policy, many insurers will take around-the-clock monitoring into account when calculating the risk that they’ll have to pay for a claim.
However, even if your insurer doesn’t consider the upgrade enough to warrant a lower premium, it’s still a worthwhile investment thanks to the much lower risk of incidents occurring on your premises.
4. To get peace of mind
If close monitoring is a requirement and you want total peace of mind, an experienced security company can help. Guardian Security Solutions can provide ongoing ULC monitoring, thereby helping to mitigate damage to your property as well as injuries and fatalities in the event of a fire, burglary or other emergencies.
