In order to prevent the theft of inventory, funds, and unauthorized intrusion, the State of New Jersey has outlined stiff security requirements for cannabis dispensaries.

Cannabis dispensaries and cultivation centers in New Jersey must adhere to strict state regulations when it comes to security. These regulations were put in place to prevent the theft of cannabis products, funds, and wrongful entry. But without an experienced cannabis security consultant, it can be difficult to know exactly what kind of protection you need.

Prospective business owners must submit a dispensary security plan in New Jersey to obtain a business license. At Independent Alarm, we are well-versed in the security requirements put forth by the State of New Jersey. We’re also cannabis security technology experts. As a result, we offer clients effective security solutions that adhere to regulations and protect them from illicit activity.

An Overview of New Jerseys’ Cannabis Security Requirements

Dispensary security plans in New Jersey must include detailed protection procedures. The plans must outline systems to prevent and detect the diversion, theft, or loss of cannabis products, currency, or wrongful entry. Examples of the required measures include but are not limited to:

  • A monitored security alarm system with panic buttons to protect staff.

  • A camera system protecting the interior and exterior of the property with remote viewing capability and 30 days of archived video.

  • An access control system to limit secure areas to authorized personnel.

  • A monthly plan to test and maintain the security systems.

  • Cannabis Security Systems

    Camera systems

    Commercial video surveillance is crucial for cannabis business owners in both crime prevention and detection. Our camera systems allow for event-based recording and 24-hour remote viewing. When installed on a permanent high-speed network, our systems can also be viewed from any smartphone, tablet, or computer anywhere in the world.

  • Access Control

    An Independent Alarm access control system is valuable to any business or high-security area. By choosing levels of security for each area, access can be granted or limited based on dates and times to allow you more control over areas that need tighter security.

  • Security Alarm System

    The team at Independent Alarm will install a security alarm that will protect your property, people and profits while meeting the state requirements for a cannabis facility. Our cannabis facility service contracts will ensure that the system is in good working order and tested every 30 days per state regulations.

  • Monitoring Services

    At Independent Alarm, we have partnered with the best monitoring centers in the United States. We offer industry leading monitoring services that cater to all aspects of your business, ensuring the highest protection. Our commercial monitoring service is a powerful tool that safeguards your customers, employees, and assets, making your business safer for everyone.

  • On-Site Security Training

    A dispensary’s security system is only as strong as its least knowledgeable employee. The Independent Alarm team can provide on-site security training for owners, security officers, and other personnel. Cannabis businesses might have millions of dollars in cash and products on hand at any given time. This makes them a target for all kinds of criminals. Thus, it’s essential to fully train your employees on how to respond to every kind of threat. Even the most advanced cannabis security systems won’t protect your business if your employees don’t use them properly.

I could not have asked for better service, experience, and professionalism, from Joe in Sales to Tony at scheduling, and the three gentlemen that did the install. I'm beyond pleased! Each person I dealt with, spoke to me like family. My safety was a concern for them as much as for me. From start, to finish, and the finest of details. Perfection! I'd recommend Independent Alarm if you want to be treated like family, and have REAL professionals.

We have had the fortunate experience of working with Independent Alarm for the last 10 years. They are extremely reliable. If there was ever a time we needed to reach out to them are questions/issues were answered or resolved on the spot. I would highly recommend Independent Alarm.

I have them in my home and have recommended them to others. They are the only reason my house was not ransacked when a burglar broke into my home. I am so happy to have peace of mind when I leave the house that if there is a break-in or fire, the authorities will know as quickly as I can because they have an app for my phone. Their prices are very good, and I HIGHLY recommend this company.
