The world is going through major changes due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and you and your business need to be protected with these changes. Due to the majority of non-essential workplaces being shut down, many companies are on the market for a security guard to protect their commercial property. There are tons of advantages to hiring security guards, including keeping small areas safe after hours. But, what if I told you that Deep Sentinel can do the same thing for a fraction of the overall cost along, along with high tech surveillance both inside and outside of your business 24/7? There are alternatives to hiring security guards, you just have to know where to look. Keep reading to learn more about other options as well as Deep Sentinel’s promise to a safe business property.

Lock Up Your Business And Secure Doors And Windows

Before hiring a security guard, secure your business in other ways first. This means investing in solid doors and windows as well as locking up the area. In fact, the very first thing you should do is utilize locks and padlocks on outside entrances as well as security doors inside. It’s an easy and cheap way to provide some security to your business. 

Your windows and doors should also be secure, and I’m not just talking about locks. Windows and doors are obviously the most common entry points for burglars. Your windows should not only be locked, but you should invest in burglar-resistant glass treatments along with a glass-break sensor alarm. Your doors should be secured by metal crossbars and be all-around strong enough to prevent a break-in. With the combination of strict padlocks and secured windows and doors, your business will be that much safer without needing a security guard.

Put Up Fences And Illuminate The Area

Before hiring a security guard, make sure you do these two things – they are almost enough to scare off burglars, vandals, and loiterers. For one, perimeter fences really do keep people off of your property, especially if you surround your entire business area with them. Additionally, they make a business look a little bit more intimidating to trespassers. 

Most importantly, you should illuminate the area around your business. Why? Because people are less likely to approach a place that is surrounded by lights – burglars don’t want to be seen. You should have lights installed that provide optimum visibility and surround the entire business area. This will not only protect people from getting hurt, but it will keep potential intruders away.

Deep Sentinel – Your Own Virtual Security Guard

Are you a business that’s currently looking to hire a security guard? Deep Sentinel offers a better option for only a fraction of the cost.
