How to Protect Your Outdoor Corporate Security System From Extreme Weather, Moraine, Ohio

If you’re a business owner, securing your property is essential. That’s why corporate security systems are so important. However, these outdoor systems can be compromised or damaged when extreme weather hits. The good news is that you can easily protect your investment with a little bit of foresight.

3 Ways to Protect Your Corporate Security Systems From Extreme Weather

Encase in Water-Resistant Housing

Corporate security systems are highly technical. They rely on state-of-the-art software and hardware to protect your property. However, snow, rain, wind, and hail can cause water and impact damage, compromising these sensitive pieces of equipment. You should encase your outdoor cameras, access control panels, and sensors and detectors with heavy-duty housings that keep moisture away from the equipment, while offering a protective shell against debris.

Waterproof Wires & Cables

Secure to Solid Structures

Once your equipment and its wiring are secure, make sure that these devices are properly affixed to solid structures. Because extreme weather is often associated with high winds and flying debris, you want to anchor this equipment to a building or other supporting foundation that won’t be compromised by the elements. A note of caution is to avoid securing your devices to metal poles or structures, as metal is a highly conductive material that can promote and exacerbate lightning damage.
