Inspection Services by CalAtlantic Security Systems


On November 9, 2019 By Eric Lay

Some businesses have the belief that, after installing a couple of security systems or deploy video surveillance networks around their property, they can now rest easy and not have to worry about thefts, break-ins, or other criminal activity against their establishment. 

While it’s true that your business is still a lot better off with these systems in place (as opposed to not having any at all), there might still be gaps in your current security measures that more determined and motivated criminal elements can exploit. 

For this reason, CalAtlantic on-site inspection services are necessary. Regular comprehensive safety and security inspections are integral in ensuring that your business is properly protected. 

Trained security consultants will check your establishment, paying particularly close attention to your security system, access controls, and how these all stack up against compliance standards, current best practices, and other set criteria. 

Common Security Issues for Businesses 

Having been in business for more than 30 years now, CalAtlantic has identified some of the more common lapses or shortcomings some establishments have when it comes to safety and security:  

  • Poor or inadequate lighting (whether inside or outside the establishment) 
  • Poor or inadequate ability to properly survey the perimeter of your asset, whether by full-time in-house security teams or via video surveillance. 
  • Outdated, defective, or non-functional security and safety equipment 
  • Failure to regularly test on-site security equipment, which may include smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, alarms against intrusion, among others. 
  • Overly lenient or outright negligent security procedures. 

Of course, each business has unique security needs and requirements, and the items included above are just examples of some of the more commonly identified gaps in safety and security.   

These are just some of the concerns our security consultants watch out for. Depending on the industry, size of the company, security goals, and other determining factors, recommendations on the best possible solutions will now be proposed.  

Assessing Your Security 

After a thorough inspection of your property, an important part of your company’s safety and security assessment is checking compliance against all required standards set by local, state, and federal bodies.  

Requirements will definitely vary according to industry and location, and you’ll want to make sure you have any compliance issues addressed right away if any have been identified.  

Now, as far as your physical security risks go, our security consultants will share with you their observations, insights, and recommendations. Options will then be presented, taking note of possible scenarios, emergencies, and other risk mitigation measures.  

Additional security measures may also be recommended, which may include some of the following: 

  • Security lighting. These will likely include energy-efficient intelligent lighting systems.
  • Surveillance systems. Strategic locations will be identified for optimal placement and coverage, helping deter criminal elements. 
  • Access control. Delicate and sensitive areas can be further secured by advanced keyless security, limiting access to just a few key employees. 
  • Burglar alarm monitoring systems. These can cover a broad spectrum of anti-intrusion measures that include perimeter sensors, motion sensors, breakage sensors, as well as vaults and safe systems. 
  • Fire and life safety measures. Helps protect your employees and other business assets by means of early detection as well as timely security measures in the unlikely event of natural disasters or other workplace mishaps. 
  • Business automation. For additional remote security options, smart office controls, and  other automated security features.
  • Business analytics. Vastly improves your on-site surveillance systems by integrating an advanced IP solution, 

Whatever adjustments you decide to choose to employ after your CalAtlantic Inspection and Assessment, your company has to properly enforce your new security measures through policy,
