May 2, 2016 01:42 PM
Do you have employees that work late and have to walk to a dark parking lot at odd hours? Do you have several pieces of expensive equipment on your property? Perhaps you simply have a very large space that needs to be monitored throughout the day and night, such as a construction site. These are just some of the reasons why you would benefit from the use of a security command center.
A security command center can protect your property, employees, and investments, as well as give you peace of mind and a feeling of security about the safety of your business. You’ll know that the things you have worked so hard for are well taken care of. Here are the four most important reasons why you need a security command center.
1. Alarm Monitoring: A command center can monitor all of your alarm systems, including fire, burglar, power and access control alarms. You will know that when an alarm at your property goes off, the command center will be on top of it immediately.
2. Video Monitoring: This gives you all the benefits of a security guard, as well as enhancing he coverage of your security perimeter. A command center can monitor video from all over your property. You can rest assured that your equipment and inventory stays protected, and your employees will feel safe walking in or around the building at all hours.
3. Emergency Phone Service: A security command center can provide your company with an 800 number to call in the event of an after-hours emergency, as well as monitoring of your elevator phones. In the event of any emergency, a command center can ensure that first responders or other necessary personnel get to the scene as quickly as possible.
4. After-Hours Management: If you received guests or packages outside of normal business hours, you need a system to manage those issues. A security command center provides greeting for guests, package delivery, and after hours phone services.
While you could use employees to provide these services, that would include the burdens of scheduling and the costs of salary and related costs. A security command center can give you and your company a multitude of benefits without the drawbacks.
