Secure Your Small Business Without an Installer

While most small business owners recognize the importance of surveillance and security, it’s not always in the budget to purchase a complex system with pricey installation costs.

Fortunately, securing your company doesn’t require breaking the bank. There are a number of do-it-yourself options that will give you all the benefits of business security—without the substantial added expense.


What tools should I use to secure my small business?

When it comes to choosing the best equipment, BrickHouse Security has got you covered. A trusted corporate security solutions provider since 2005, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of monitoring and protecting your organization.

Over the years, we’ve served hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and more than 40,000 small businesses, whose preferred DIY security tools include:

  • Security Cameras

  • Alarm Systems

  • Electronic Locks


Security Cameras

Don’t overlook the importance of security cameras. These tools allow small business owners to monitor their space remotely, and offer a clear view of tucked away places that are generally harder to see. 

From traditional offices to storefronts to warehouses, and even outdoor work areas like construction sites, security cameras can accommodate a number of different locations. Ultimately, they help to ensure small business owners’ peace of mind by deterring thieves and catching trespassers, and by allowing managers to supervise their teams and business space from a distance.

An added bonus? Most security cameras are simple to set up, and business owners can get theirs in working order without any need for a professional installer. Search for products that offer high-quality video, secure storage options, and easy accessibility.

Alarm Systems

Alarms are relatively simple, but that doesn’t make them any less effective from a business security standpoint. These systems are designed to notify you, and the authorities, depending on the features you choose, the moment a crime occurs.

There are countless alarm systems available at various price points, including wireless options that are easy to install yourself. What’s more, most systems come with versatile components, sensors, and alerts.

So, whether your focus is on monitoring entry or keeping intruders at bay, you can enjoy an alarm system solution with custom options.


Electronic Locks

In recent years, keyless entry systems have experienced a spike in popularity. Unlike traditional locks, electronic locks can keep employees or anyone else from opening specific doors within your business space, and notify you each time someone enters the premises. They are ideal for limiting access to sensitive areas, or simply securing the perimeter of the property.

Like the other tools we’ve discussed, you don’t need a professional installer to hook you up with a system of your own. Keyless door locks can be outfitted on any door, interior or exterior, and are easy to equip with access codes for each member of your team. More advanced systems can be activated with the push of a button, either in an app or using an online interface.

And of course, your small business security options don’t end there. Additional tools include counter surveillance and GPS tracking solutions, among other products.
