Perimeter Security Tips for Fall and Winter

perimeter security for fall and winter

Make sure you have a fence installed for perimeter security this fall and winter.

As fall and winter arrive, weather changes, and facilities must adapt to ensure that their perimeter security remains high. If you are a property manager that wants to make sure your high-security facility or property remains safe and protected from intruders this winter, add the following perimeter security accessories. 

Perimeter Security Fencing

One of the best ways to provide security for your property is to install security fencing if you don’t already have some in place. Fencing can protect meters, HVAC equipment, transformers, and other mechanical equipment found around your building. It also discourages intrusion attempts and keeps pedestrians from wandering onto your secure property. Contact Hercules High Security to determine the best materials and construction for your property and security needs. 

Add Security Cameras

Adding CCTV security cameras around your fence and building is an excellent way to improve your perimeter security. Cameras assure you that your property is being monitored at all times. They also increase your ability to notice lurkers or potential intruders around your property. Finally, you can record footage with your cameras and use it if necessary for evidence of any break-ins. 

Increase Perimeter Visibility

Building perimeters can often be shrouded by trees or other landscaping. To increase your perimeter security, you should increase visibility as much as possible by trimming trees and shrubs so no one can hide behind them. You may also consider adding tall motion-activated lights around the perimeter of your property or fence. These illuminate the area so that you can see any unusual activity from a distance. This is especially helpful during the fall and winter when the nights are longer. 

Use Signs and Decals

Criminals and intruders can often be deterred by a sign or decal from a reputable alarm company. If an intruder sees that an alarm system protects a building, they may not even bother to approach the perimeter closer. 

By combining these perimeter security features, you can be sure to avoid any costly break-ins or damages to your facility this season.
