Does my small business need an Security system?
In a word the answer is simple, yes. If you run a small business, be it a chiropractor office, a dental office, a restaurant, or anything else along those lines, then you need to protect your investment. Don't think that just because you are a small business you are less likely to be targeted by criminals. In fact since you are a small business you may be an even more tempting target since criminals may assume you don't have a good commercial alarm system installed. The last thing you want to do is to prove these opportunistic criminals right by not protecting your small business with an alarm. This is basically the equivalent of leaving the doors unlocked and inviting a criminal in, since a lack of an alarm system means that the likelihood of a criminal being caught is going to be much lower than if you have a good alarm. So unless you want to invite criminals into your business to steal from you and do their best to destroy what you have worked so hard to build, then make the smart choice and protect your business with an alarm.
When you stop to consider how little money installing an alarm system and paying for monitoring each month will cost you it should be clear that this is an expense that is well worth it. An alarm system is one of the most effective criminal deterrents you will find, and it also has the added benefit of giving you the peace of mind of knowing that there is a company out there keeping an eye on your business when you aren't there. If you still aren't certain about whether or not you need an alarm system, then just imagine how you would feel if you showed up to work one day and discovered that your business had been burglarized. What do you tell your customers that show up that day? How do you help your employees to cope with the emotional trauma of seeing their workplace broken into so that they still feel safe while they are working? Sure you can contact your insurance company and file a claim to cover lost property and other assets, but this won't help you to recover the revenue you are going to lose while you are shut down and trying to get things up and running again. An insurance company also won't be able to return the sense of normalcy that will be severely disrupted either.
Does my small business need an alarm system? Well the answer to that question is going to depend on a lot of different things. Do you value your business? Do you want your employees to feel safe and your customers to feel confident doing business with you? Do you want to protect your investment so that it continues to provide for you and your family? If you answered yes to these questions then the answer should be simple, you need an alarm system to protect your small business.
