Individual seasons each provide their own challenges, with different strategies needed to tackle business security in summer, winter, fall, and spring.

While everyone knows that good security measures are a must for any business, seasonal business security is often overlooked. Individual seasons each provide their own challenges, with different strategies needed to tackle business security in summer, winter, fall, and spring. In order to discover key ways to make sure your business security is flawless and on the ready all winter long, take a look at these important suggestions.

Take A Look At Your Business Security Lighting

Security lighting is pivotal during the winter months, as it gets darker and darker earlier and earlier. Lighting has a large impact on how effective CCTV is is. Extended darkness offers potential intruders an extra advantage, meaning that your lighting must be up to the task. Many consider Infrared (IR) lighting, which can be picked up by security cameras but not seen by the naked eye. This means that intruders are left in the dark, while those monitoring your business via CCTV are not.

Make Sure Cameras Are ‘All-Weather Ready’

While every year everyone prepares for a veritable snow-pocalypse, winters are unpredictable. Often they are partially calm and partially thick with snow and storms, and we never quite know when or where that snow will fall. Regardless, it is important to make sure that your security cameras can handle anything, so your business security is not compromised by wind or snow.  

Don’t Forget To Set Your Clocks Back

This is easy fix is so easy that it is often overlooked when it comes to winter business security. Make sure that when the clocks go back, all of your security equipment is set to match. If you do not, it could make the CCTV footage you capture of any crimes committed on your property unable to be used in a court of law.

Check The Perimeters  

It is incredibly important to remember to check all of the perimeters of a site. You might be surprised by what summer and fall foliage can conceal. This can include things like broken perimeter fencing or even objects left near your business which can make breaking and entering easier. Make sure your property is secure and ready to handle the harsh weather.
