AUDIT, DESIGN, SUPPLY, BUILD & MONITOR
Warehouses are the heart of the supply chain industry. Companies all across the world rely on their warehouses to store valuable components of their business. Security issues in the warehouse will lead to financial losses as well as lower employee morale. That is why unauthorized warehouse entry must be protected by implementing proper security measures. The value of a warehouse, or more precisely, its contents, is well understood by criminals. An unattended warehouse is an open invitation to burglars looking for high-value commodities to resell. Therefore, security in warehouses is one of the most important aspects of operations for many business enterprises.
Inventory loss due to warehouse theft or negligence, regardless of insurance coverage, can be a costly and unpleasant experience. Your merchandise should be safe and secure at all times. That is why it is important to have trust in your warehouse provider to store your goods and products in a facility that meets the highest security standards and employs cutting-edge warehouse theft prevention technology. An effective warehouse security system should have alarm systems that work 24/7, video surveillance technology, and coordinated security patrols.
1. CCTV surveillance cameras: Warehouse security requires strategically positioned video surveillance cameras. Cameras and video provide a permanent record of activity that is preserved for a set period. Business owners and managers can monitor the video system in real-time from wherever they are with a remote system. Consider installing a video surveillance security system that provides you with:
CCTV cameras should be installed both inside and outside the warehouse. They should be placed in areas with adequate lighting. When motion sensor lighting is used, it can help ensure that there is adequate lighting when required.
2. Alarm System: One of the most important components of a warehouse security system is an alarm system with alarm monitoring. The video surveillance system’s remote monitoring provides you with not just an alert that something is happening but also a video of the actual scenario. The size of your warehouse, the number of zones, and the types of access within the premises are the factors that will influence your alarm system. Some other system components (fire, smoke, gas, chemicals, etc.) may also be integrated with some of the alarm solutions.
3. Motion Sensors: An effective alarm system heavily relies on motion sensors. Motion detection alarms can send notifications to your security firm and/or police enforcement in the event of unauthorized access to the warehouse or a zone, which is prevalent in warehouses.
Any negligence in warehouse security allows thieves to steal the product and make a quick buck easily. The above-mentioned security solutions aren’t the only ones that you can use to secure your warehouse. While no security system is completely unbreakable by criminals, combining all of these steps helps to build a highly secure warehouse that reduces risks and better protects your goods.
