Why Does Security In Offices Matter?

There are many reasons that you need to protect your commercial buildings. We've outlined only some of them:

  • Protect your assets: Your office contains valuable assets such as computers, data, and equipment that need to be protected from theft, damage, or unauthorized access.
  • Keep employees safe: Your business wouldn't operate without your employees so their safety and well-being are paramount. A secure office environment can protect employees from harm, harassment, or violence.
  • Comply with regulations: Many industries are subject to regulations that require them to implement certain security measures. For example, healthcare providers must protect patient data under HIPAA regulations, while financial institutions must comply with FDIC and SEC regulations.
  • Business continuity: Security incidents such as theft, vandalism, or cyber-attacks can disrupt business operations and result in financial losses. With a comprehensive security plan, you can minimize the impact of these incidents and ensure business continuity.
  • Manage your reputation: The last thing you want is a security intrusion to damage your reputation. By implementing effective security measures, companies can demonstrate their commitment to protecting their assets, employees, and customers. Without a building security system in place, you run the risk of damage that could cost you financially as well as impact your reputation.

How many cameras do you need for a video surveillance system in a small office?

The amount of cameras and sensors required for a small office or commercial building depends heavily on the floor plan. Depending on the layout of your office, there may be some “blind spots” that one camera may not be able to pick up on, requiring another to ensure the whole office is secure. Our team at Forbel will evaluate your location, ensuring that your unique office space has just the right amount of office video security systems.

What is the best security system for business owners?

Great question! While one simple solution would be nice, the best security system for each business owner depends on the layout of the space, the size, and the goals of installing security solutions. We'll work with you to understand your needs to ensure your business has just the right security system and controlled access while offering a competitive security system for business prices.

How much does a business security system cost in Chicago?

The cost of a business security system in Chicago depends on the solution you choose and the scale of the system your business requires. An office door security system on one single entry point will cost less than an array of cameras, but our team will work with you and your budget to find the best, most secure solution. Forbel offers free estimates to gauge your prices and budget for your security system. For an estimate or to answer any questions, contact us at 847-595-1900.

How much does an alarm system cost for a small office?
