As a small business owner, you put your blood, sweat, and tears into making your business a success. When it comes to protecting that investment, it’s important to expect the best and plan for the worst. One of the most important things you can do for your business and your future is to create a comprehensive security plan to keep your business, customers, and employees safe.


At Bloomington Security Solutions in Minnesota, we specialize in helping Twin Cities business owners plan ahead to protect their business. We offer a wide range of commercial security solutions to help you keep your business and everyone inside it safe. Read on to learn about some of our top solutions for securing your commercial business.


1.      Monitor Your Facility with Camera Surveillance

One of the biggest security challenges faced by a small business is that you simply can’t be everywhere at once. This means you’re not always able to monitor the entrances and exits to your building or keep an eye on more vulnerable areas.


Video surveillance is accessible using electronic devices so that you can keep an eye on everything from anywhere in the world. The presence of cameras functions as a powerful deterrent to theft, and it gives you a video record in case you need documentation of an event.


From a mobile device, you can also view the surveillance from the cloud when it comes to CCTV systems and alarms.


2.      Install a Better Alarm System

If you’re operating with an inadequate or outdated alarm system, it’s time to consider an upgrade. Many older systems only alert business owners to a door opening or broken window. Although window sensors and glass break detectors are important, they’re not enough by themselves.


We also offer technologically advanced alarm systems that include door sensors, panic buttons, motion detectors, and temperature sensors. With our 24-hour surveillance options, you can rest assured knowing your business is in good hands.


3.      Increase Facility Protection

Audit the physical security of your small business. If your building or commercial space has inadequate lighting, this can pose a serious threat to your property and a danger to your customers and employees. It’s also a good idea to upgrade your key system by installing keyless access.


This prevents problems from duplicated keys and damaged keys while eliminating issues that arise from lost keys. You’ll be in complete control of who has access to your building, and you can easily change that access at any time.



4.      Upgrade Your Door Hardware

If your building is accessed by an older door or an easily damaged material, consider replacing your door or hardware. We can install an exit door with a panic or crash bar for high-traffic areas. Or consider replacing your existing door with a commercial steel door for an added layer of protection against impacts from weather, intruders, and vandals.
