Ensure Wellbeing With Physical Security Measures

Do you consider security essential to your health and well-being practices? Well, it’s time to start thinking about it. Did you know that 81% of break-in victims admitted to suffering from mental health issues as a consequence?

If you fall victim to a break-in, you won’t be able to keep a hold on your mental and physical health as effectively.

So, what can you do to reduce the likelihood of a break-in at your home, office, or property? Keep reading as we explore the top physical security planning tips to give you peace of mind and ensure long-lasting wellbeing.

Implement Access Control

Traditional key and lock systems are quickly becoming a thing of the past. They simply aren’t enough to prevent people from breaking into your home using a lockpick or lock-picking device.

What is the best way to lock your doors and eliminate the risk of lockpicking? Well, you can implement access control to secure your property from intruders. Access control operates without keys and instead uses one of the following methods to secure the door:

 

  • Keycards and fobs – simply swipe your keycard or fob over the access reader to gain entry to your property.

 

  • Thumbprint scanners – only registered people can enter using a thumbprint scanner, as it ensures total identity verification for building users.

 

  • Mobile access credentials – you can store digital keycards on your mobile device to unlock the door with contactless technology using Bluetooth communication, ensuring convenient access.

 

  • Pin pads or Unique QR Code – you can use a code to enter your home or property, but you must ensure this code is only given to trustworthy individuals.

 

Choosing an access control solution depends on the level of identity verification you need to prevent unauthorised access and which solution will provide the most convenience for you and other building users. Mobile access credentials are the most scalable solution if you need to grant property access to a wide range of people, whereas thumbprint scanners provide foolproof identity verification.

Install Security Cameras

Security cameras are a security staple because they protect property in two different ways:

 

  • They provide evidence of any crimes that occur on the premises to aid in a police investigation or insurance claim.
  • They help to deter criminals from entering or damaging the property with the threat of being recorded.

 

In the modern security climate, cloud-based security cameras make the optimal choice. They allow you to easily view your security data from anywhere and use AI technology to alert you when suspicious activity is detected. You’ll receive an alert whenever a person is detected on your security cameras.

 

This technology keeps you consistently up-to-date with what’s happening on your property to ease your mind about your safety and security.

Adopting Alarm Systems

Alarm systems help to keep your property safe from intrusion, fire, and gas leaks. Here are some of the foundations of a complete alarm system:

 

  • Carbon monoxide detectors – if there’s a gas leak on your property, you need to know about it before it results in an explosion or poisoning.

 

  • Fire alarms – a smoke detector ensures that building occupants can alert the authorities and evacuate the building in the event of a fire, which helps to preserve life and keep you safe. Fire safety is especially important when it comes to protecting the vulnerable.

 

  • Intrusion alarms – motion sensors can be activated when you leave the house, ensuring you receive a notification if anyone should enter the property while you’re out. The alarms will trigger, hopefully, deter the criminal and create a disturbance to alert others.

 

You can opt for cloud-based alarm systems to ensure you receive a mobile alert if any fire, gas, or intrusion is detected on your property. You’ll be able to leave the house knowing nothing can happen that you don’t know about.

Summary

Are you doing enough to secure your properties and provide yourself with peace of mind? Your security systems provide assurance for your physical well-being and ensure that you don’t have to wrestle with the mental health consequences of a break-in. Consider which of these security installations you should prioritise moving forward into a safer future.
