You can find many different security systems out there, ranging from a simple door alarm to something resembling Fort Knox, with high-tech cameras, monitoring on every window and door, as well as interior cameras and thermal detectors. Many Alarms R Us customers ask what level of security they really need for their businesses—and with good reason. You don’t want to go overboard and spend a fortune, but you also want to make sure your property is secure.
Some NYC business owners decide to install a system in either the interior or exterior areas, while others decide to secure both. We advise that you make the choice based on your security needs (where is your property vulnerable?) and the associated costs (what is your budget?). Most people can find a system that accommodates their particular security needs.
Consider installing higher levels of security in vulnerable areas. We can install additional security in specific areas, if needed. For example, if you own a store here in New York, you may want to have extra monitoring where you keep your money or valuables. These areas may be more prone to theft.
If your budget forces you to make a choice between interior and exterior security, remember your original reasons for installing security. If you want the best balance between cost and security, the best choice is to have security for the windows and doors. However, if you’re more interested in having layers of security and the cost is secondary, then security cameras for the interior area along with the windows and doors is the best option.
Everyone has different needs, financial resources, and objectives pertaining to security systems. We recommend that you take some time to determine what your security needs and objectives are because these factors will have a major impact on your final security-system decisions.
