With the increased seriousness of the COVID-19 outbreak, Victoria and New South Wales have currently enacted lockdowns. This means that only essential services are currently allowed to remain open. If your business is considered non-essential, then it is likely that your staff are either working remotely or not working at all.
Emergencies all too often bring out the worst in our population. As a result, businesses all across Victoria will be left empty and potentially vulnerable to opportunistic vandals and petty theft. Now, more than ever, it is important to ensure your business is secure and protected. It is important to be cautious and forward thinking in order to maintain your facilities during this emergency. Today we are going to discuss how to keep your business secure during the COVID-19 outbreak.
1: Access Control
Access control allows you to control who can go where throughout your facility. Eversafe can help you create an end-to-end security system that can prevent unauthorised access to your facilities. We provide leading access control security door locking ability to restrict access wherever required. Our systems provide door access control tracking and business access control auditing. Your site might also benefit from site access control timing or attendance. Door access control is also perfect for lift access control.
You can also control building access via ID cards and printing systems, or visitor badging systems. Need to support your HR staff or check OH&S requirements in your site? Access control can include onsite tracking – perfect for evacuation procedures, as well a timesheet support and monitoring of staff movement.
Make criminal intrusion difficult with a robust access control system.
2: CCTV to Keep Your Business Secure During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Modern CCTV can help deter theft as well as record criminal activity on your property. Even the presence of a camera can deter petty criminals who are concerned about their actions being caught on file.
Further, Modern HD CCTV systems can record clear footage in the event of an intrusion onto your premises. This is ideal to hand over to police and authorities as required. An integrated CCTV system can help you respond immediately to a break-in or emergency on your premises.
Eversafe’s CCTV systems are convenient, easy to use, and affordable. They allow you to view and manage your site – or sites – easily on your smartphone for the best in security and instant information. Our team can help you choose the right placement for your cameras and the right storage requirements for your footage. Further, it is important to check if there is any legislation governing what you must have for your business – including camera placemen, storage, and camera resolution.
We can install CCTV with legacy coaxial cabling from previous camera systems. Or you can utilise IP cameras, which give you more flexibility should you need to expand your system during the lockdown time.

3: Alarm Systems
Alarm systems are a time-honoured security system for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Like cameras, a visible alarm system can be a deterrent for many intruders and would-be criminals. A well-designed alar system, like those from the experts at Eversafe.
Modern alarm systems are easy to control, even from your smartphone. Activate or deactivate your alarms easily from the palm of your hand. Alarm systems can easily communicate alarm events to you over the 4G network or NBN. Using 4G GPRS is the highest level of security communication we have as they are dual sim – if, for example, Telstra’s network fails, the system will switch to the Optus network.
Modern alarm systems also provide you with peace of mind through:
- IP Monitoring
- Motion detectors
- Reed switches
- Hold up or panic buttons
- Seismic sensors
- Smoke detectors
A monitored alarm system helps keep you and your business protected from unwanted intruders and criminals. They provide 24/7 protections so no matter where you and your staff are, you know your alarm system is helping keep your site protected.
