Restaurants and cafés are customer-facing businesses, which means they must contend with a number of potential security threats. If you own or manage a restaurant, you should consider installing a robust security system to protect your premises, employees and customers.
What is restaurant security?
Restaurant security systems typically incorporate several different devices for maximum protection.
Restaurants and cafés are often vulnerable to:
- Inventory theft
- Damage to company property
- Fire damage
A good security system for restaurants and cafés will include:
It is likely that your restaurant or café will need 24/7 surveillance, particularly as security breaches such as burglary or theft are more likely to occur outside of normal working hours.
That being said, incidents can happen at any time, so it’s important to install CCTV cameras in view of all points of value, such as cash registers, stock cupboards, entry/exists points and safes.
Fire alarms are a legal requirement for businesses like restaurants and cafés in order to protect all those using the premises. It is particularly important in places with busy kitchens, where fires are an even bigger hazard.
An efficient fire and smoke alarm system is the best way to ensure your business, customers and employees are safe.
Cash registers, stock cupboards and on-site safes make restaurants and cafés particularly vulnerable to break-ins and burglaries.
A professionally-installed alarm system can help to ward off intruders, and our 24hr monitoring service means that you'll be protected around the clock.
Access Control Systems
Access control systems ensure only authorised persons have access to employee-only areas of your business.
Here are some examples of how access control points can benefit your business:
- Keep track of who is working and when with an access control point on employee entry/exit doors.
- Ensure only vetted personnel have access to stock cupboards, safes and other company assets.
- Easily investigate incidents of theft, damage, etc.
