Did you know that more than $100 million in goods is stolen each year from retailers? As a retail business owner, you know that theft is one of the top security issues for most stores. And you understand that having a strong retail security system is vital if you want to protect your company.
The retail industry has a unique need for a security system. While the physical property is a challenge to protect, with the rise of cyber threats, digital property is just as important to safeguard. How can you protect your store, inventory, customers, and staff while also ensuring your data is secure? You need a comprehensive retail security system to cover all aspects of operations. Read more about the importance of this below:
Retail security systems are the protective and preventive measures put in place to protect a retail store’s building, employees, customers, and assets. Security systems consist of a combination of software and hardware that monitor, mitigate, and manage a variety of risks.
Retail stores of all sizes need a security system. Retail theft is an ongoing issue with businesses seeing $700,00 in losses for every $1 billion in sales. As a business owner, you must proactively put the proper security measures in place to mitigate this costly issue.
Obviously, theft is a big reason retail stores need security systems. But the types of theft aren’t always shoplifters. Read more about the most common security challenges in the retail industry:
Many retailers deal with internal theft at one point or another. Did you know that having a security system in place can help control this popular issue? Employees are much less likely to steal from their employer when they are continuously monitored and know swift action will be taken in the event of stealing.
External theft is one of the most popular crimes. More and more criminals are figuring out how to work around security systems, so it’s vital you have a comprehensive network in place that is impenetrable. Criminals are not looking to put in hours of work to figure out how to break through your security measures, so a strong system will likely send them on to the next victim.
Customers trust retailers with their credit card information and other personal data. You have to make sure that trust isn’t broken. Your security system should include extensive measures to protect your retail company from the variety of cyber threats retailers face. A few of the most common ones include:
A comprehensive security system with highly secure protocols will help protect your digital assets and information. This not only ensures your company stays safe, but it also creates better employee and customer experiences.
There are many benefits of having a retail security system. The most obvious is your store and inventory is protected. There are other less obvious benefits, such as:
Surveillance allows you to check in and know what is happening at any point. Many systems, including those at TTD Security Systems, have remote or mobile viewing options. This means you can check in and monitor your store from anywhere in the world. You never have to worry about what is happening.
A retail store that is monitored 24/7 is less of an appeal to criminals. They know they will be recorded and with today’s high-resolution surveillance equipment, law enforcement will have no issues finding them. Your employees with nefarious intentions know they will be caught.
Employees are much less likely to goof off or waste company time when there is a security system in place. Most security measures record activities on- and offline, so employees are more focused. A security system allows you to be a better people manager.
Retail stores with a security system are less of a risk to insurance companies. This could lead to a lower premium. When setting your premium, insurance companies look at the likelihood of an event. A security system lowers that chance for your business.
TTD Security Systems has a variety of services with us to create a comprehensive security solution for retailers. We meet with each customer to understand their unique needs and then design the appropriate system. Your retail security system could include the following elements:
TTD Security Systems offers high-resolution digital surveillance products that produce crystal-clear imaging. Your store will always be monitored with digital footage available from anywhere. Our devices have the following features:
For retail stores with analog systems, we can also help you! Our hybrid surveillance solution combines your existing equipment with digital aspects to improve your security system. We work with you to slowly transition to a fully digital solution over time.
The first step in preventing theft is to secure your perimeter. TTD Security Systems’s perimeter protection solution uses sensors, lighting, signage, and gates to protect your building from the outside. Potential intruders will be stopped long before they gain access to your assets.
As much as we’d love to install your security system and never have to do anything else with it, that’s not reality. To keep a retail security system working correctly, it needs regular maintenance and sometimes repair services. We offer both, so you can keep your equipment in top shape.
In the event your system malfunctions, our dedicated team is available the same day to resolve your issue. You never have to worry about your safety when you work with TTD Security Systems.
TTD Security Systems has both card and biometric readers to control access. These can be placed at entrances or elevators. You can also use them on drawers, cabinets, and other areas you want to restrict access to.
Our card reader uses technology to scan your worker’s card and either approve or deny access. Every transaction is recorded in the database so you have documentation if needed. Our biometric readers work the same way, only they scan retinas, fingerprints, or hands to allow or deny access.
TTD Security Systems’s fiber optic and data cabling services are some of the best in the industry. We partner with Commscope, CSI, General Cable, Panduit, Leviton, and Belden to offer data cabling. This service includes cabling, testing, and certification for up to and including category eight.
