A good time to assess your office security systems
The last few months have finally seen the UK start to record positive economic data across all the main sectors of the economy. The service sector, manufacturing and construction have all recorded encouraging growth figures and as a result The Chamber of Commerce has now upped its annual growth forecast for 2013 to 1.3% from its May forecast of 0.9%. The organisation also raised its growth forecast for 2014 to 2.2% a level approaching pre- recession growth levels. So what does this mean for your business – well of course goods news! But now may also be a good time to assess your office security requirements and to look into those office security upgrades that you’ve been putting off until cash flow was better.
Keeping your business safe is still a vitally important objective and you may be surprised how much has changed since you last looked into your office security options and requirements.
First of all there are many new options in integrated security systems, that is complete office security packages Typically an integrated office security package will include access control, intruder alarm, CCTV and fire alarm systems. All these systems are designed and installed to operate seamlessly and intelligently for both office and industrial premises.
There have also been great advances in wireless alarm systems and these systems can be a key element in your office security strategy. The problem with wireless alarm systems was both reliability and cost. However, in the last few years manufacturers such as Risco, Menvier, Cooper and Visonic have developed extremely reliable and cost effective wireless intruder alarm for office security usage. Wireless alarms can now often costs less than wired systems due to reduced installation costs and detector batteries can now last up to 3 years.
There are several types of detector systems now available on the market. These include microwave and infra-red detection systems. Infra-red systems usually deploy beams deploy in inconspicuous locations to detect movement. Dual technology motion sensors combine infra-red and microwave technologies to give a very reliable form of detection.
