Security is a pertinent issue for business owners. A company with a robust security system is attractive to prospective employees, customers and investors. Therefore, you must make careful considerations regarding the security system to install on your premises. While a local security systems store might stock the hardware and software components you need, you should not settle for any service provider. Notably, a certified channel partner is recommended when installing security systems. Here is why.
Expert Security System Design — When you install a security system, it should work for you, meaning that its design should accommodate your specific business needs. However, you will rarely get customised solutions from an independent vendor, which is where a certified channel partner comes in since they guarantee expert security system design and support. For instance, an accredited channel partner can help you identify the correct camera placement if your facility has numerous blind spots. In addition, by analysing your facility, a certified channel partner can establish what accessories you need to get the most out of a newly installed security system. Most importantly, staff understand the capabilities of security systems and configuring them based on clients' requirements.
Remote Technical Support — Just like any other piece of technology, security systems are not fail-proof. Although security system manufacturers do their best to produce products and systems with self-diagnosis and troubleshooting capabilities, some problems require an expert's input. Notably, you can call a technician onsite to look at a security system, identify a problem, and resolve it. However, sometimes you need a fast or immediate response, especially when dealing with critical security issues. A certified channel partner can provide remote technical support when required. For example, modern security systems are equipped with cloud storage capabilities, allowing real-time remote access to configuration settings and footage. Therefore, you need immediate support if you cannot access real-time footage from the cloud. Certified channel partners make it possible via real-time technical assistance packages.
Freedom to Choose a Security Specialist — When looking for a security system supplier, you can ask for referrals, but the final decision remains with you. Notably, some suppliers sell all kinds of security systems for different markets and industries. While you can find what you need from such a vendor, it is better to partner with a supplier who understands security issues unique to your industry. For instance, some certified channel partners only sell access control systems designed for residential homes, while others focus on security cameras for the healthcare sector. However, you only get the freedom to choose or switch between specialist vendors if you work with certified channel partners.
