4 Tips to Secure your Commercial Warehouse

As more and more consumers move to online shopping and begin to rely on door to door delivery. Business owners are seeing an increase in e-commerce sales and utilizing more warehouse space to meet the rise in consumer demand. The increase in commercial warehouse space can make the warehouse susceptible to intruders, and theft. Effective access control security systems enable a business to track access in areas of the business by either preventing or granting access based on a persons credentials or identity. When considering these tips when upgrading your commercial warehouse security.

Commercial Warehouse Best Practices

1. Role-Based Access Control

If yours is a business where people are coming and going all day, it may be helpful for you to keep a closer eye on what’s going on by using an access log. Simply make it part of your policy that all guests and visitors have to go via the main office to sign in in order to access your space. In the event that a theft does occur on your property you can narrow it down to a certain day and even time and then check your security camera footage from that date.


An effective security camera system can take the place of a physical security patrol in many cases. The flexibility of remote monitoring has been an attractive option for many commercial warehouse owners. The ability to check on shipments, customer traffic and employee shifts is appealing and gives owners peace of mind.
