3 Ways to Improve Your Company’s Perimeter Protection

3 Ways to Improve Your Company’s Perimeter Protection


Many business owners regularly take strong security measures that safeguard the inside of their property, but unfortunately, the perimeter often gets overlooked. This poses a huge problem, as your premises could still be accessed by intruders without the right security features protecting the perimeter. 

Luckily, there are several approaches you can take to safeguard the perimeter of your business, and we are more than happy to give you three useful tips in this article:

Install a Security Camera System

While installing a security camera system inside your place of business is a no-brainer, you should consider extending that level of surveillance to the outside perimeter. Be sure to install cameras that can withstand various climate situations. You would not want equipment shutting down at the most crucial times due to a rainstorm or blizzard. 

There are various features that security cameras can have, like night or thermal vision, which allows for better visibility in an outdoor environment. Some cameras are even advanced enough to ignore non-threatening activities from wildlife or the weather, thus preventing false alarms. Other security systems allow for one-way voice communication, giving you or your security officer an avenue to communicate with the intruder to issue a warning that the police have been contacted. 

Another means of protecting your property would be by placing signs warning or notifying people that they are being monitored on a video surveillance system. This will act as a deterrent to all potential intruders. 

Use Sensors and Detectors

By installing sensors and motion detectors near the various entry points of your property, an alarm will immediately set off, notifying you and your security team of any potential thieves. The sensors and motion detectors will also inform you of the exact location the intruder tried to access, giving you a better idea of which entry points require more robust safeguards. What that entails could vary from better fencing to barriers on the windows or more substantial locks on doors.

Increase Visibility (Lighting, Ensure No Blindspots)

The cover of the night is often the best accomplice for any thief. Remove that advantage by increasing the visibility on your property at night. Stronger and brighter lights help deter intruders and help your security cameras pick up a clear picture of anyone who might try to break into your business. 

You also want to ensure your surveillance system is not at a disadvantage when it comes to blindspots. Search your property’s perimeter for any potential blindspots and fix the situation accordingly. This could mean equipping your security system with rotating cameras or motion sensor cameras with wide-angle lenses. 

Remember to maintain the landscape in the vicinity if your business is in an area shrouded with trees and shrubbery. Keep the site of your surveillance system clear of any branches, debris, or dirt that can potentially obstruct the camera’s view.
