Should I Invest in Layered Perimeter Security For My Business?

All security professionals have (or should have) a layered security system in place. So you may be wondering, “Why would I need to worry about adding another component to my security solution?”

The Disadvantages of Traditional Commercial Security Solutions

Barbed Wire

Barbed wire may provide a perception of security; however, customers have indicated that it does not act as an effective deterrent against theft. Barbed wire is attached to your chain link fence, so a thief planning to rob your facility will almost certainly have wire cutters, which work just as well on the barbed wire as they do on the chain link. To prevent theft on your commercial property, we recommend investing in a layered security system that is engineered to monitor your property 24 hours each day.

Security Guards

Security guards be an effective route in deterring theft, but there are problems with this approach. With a security guard or two on staff, they can only be present and have their eyes on so much of your location. You are at risk of theft occurring in a section of your location that is not being watched at that moment. Guards are also human: a number of customers have cited the guards were distracted, or even asleep when a theft occurred. 

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)

Allows you to have the “eye in the sky” and monitor your entire location at one time; something that your team of security guards cannot realistically achieve. However, is the response time fast enough from monitoring to prevent a theft?

Police must be called and arrive at the scene and their resources are limited. Unlike the custom layered security solutions provided by AMAROK, police are mandated to prioritize life safety issues over property theft. So on a Friday or Saturday night, police may be delayed in responding to an issue in your property. Our perimeter security services and products are designed to eliminate the lag time associated with commercial burglary.

The Advantages of a Layered Security System & Electric Fences

The reality is that many security solutions do not provide the protection needed to protect your truck yard, warehouse, or commercial property from theft. To avoid losing money on valuable goods and products on your property, we recommend considering our layered security solution for your organization

Solar Powered Electric Fencing

Our solar powered electric fence is a total of 10 feet tall. When a thief approaches the fence, they will be greeted by warning signs that are designed to inform criminals of the electrical current.

Integrating an electric fence into your security environment can help fill the gaps and mitigate the risks you are currently exposed to.

Perimeter Alarm System

Our layered security system also includes an alarm that is engineered to warn property managers of potential robberies and theft. If a criminal attempts to cut the electric security fence, this alarm will be activated to scare the patron. 

Outdoor Video Cameras

The perimeter security system provided by AMAROK is integrated with outdoor video cameras that allow you to monitor your property from your phone or computer. Additionally, our staff is always monitoring each camera in your warehouse or yard to prevent cargo theft.

Additional Perimeter Lights

Our team will install additional lights on your property such as defender light bars and parking lot lights to decrease the prominence of commercial theft in your warehouse, facility, or yard.

Tiered Access 

The layered security solution from AMAROK allows you to customize access control to specific areas of your property. To protect your inventory, you are able to limit the scope of access among employees within your company. Our perimeter security solution allows you to give or eliminate access to specific areas of your property among different departments, groups, managers, and staff.
