Commercial Security

Preventing Business Burglaries at Night

image

While homes are more likely to be broken into during the day, because no one is home, businesses are more likely to be broken into at night. The same logic applies here. At night, no one is usually at businesses, and it is dark, giving nefarious individuals “cover.” If you want to protect your business, make sure to use the tips here.

Implement Video Monitoring

With video monitoring, you can keep an eye on your business – even when you aren’t there. One of the most effective ways to not only deter, but also catch, criminals is by installing quality surveillance cameras throughout the property. Some areas to install cameras include:

  • The buildings perimeter
  • Near doors and windows
  • Inside near cash registers, inventory rooms and safes

Make sure to choose a video surveillance system that provides remote access to the video feed. This allows you to see what is going on, anytime and from any location.

Install Monitored Alarms

When selecting an alarm system, a key factor to keep in mind is the monitoring center it offers. Specifically, make sure to ask about the off-hours monitoring, or other times when you may not be around. With a monitored alarm, you can feel confident that if a person were to break into your property, a signal would be sent to the monitoring service and the proper authorities would be dispatched. You can even hook up the system to your mobile device to receive notifications if the alarm is triggered.

Nighttime can lead to quite a bit of nefarious activity. However, if you implement the tips and tools here, you can safeguard yourself and your business.

Residential Security

What to Look for When Shopping for Home Security Monitoring

If you have decided it is time to install a home security system, you have also likely noticed that there are more than a few companies out there providing these services. Many of them are going to offer monitoring, which is a must-have for superior protection. However, the question is, which monitoring service is the best, and how do you choose? Here you can learn what factors to consider to ensure you choose the right alarm and monitoring service for your needs.

Monitoring Quality There are two options when selecting a monitoring center:

  • In-house monitoring: This is provided by the security company you use.
  • Third-party monitoring: This is outsourced by your selected security company and provided by an off-site monitoring center.

Both of these options provide basic monitoring tasks. They can both send notifications of an emergency or alarm, but that is where the similarities end. The personalization and customer service factor are what sets these two services apart. An in-house monitoring center is able to route any customer inquiries to the proper personnel. A third-party service can’t do this.

Operators and Training of the Monitor Center Employees

Training is extremely important for any monitoring service. After all, these operators are going to be responsible for people’s property and lives. You should make sure the operators are trained in the following areas:

  • Use of the automation software
  • Information accuracy
  • Customer service
  • Urgent situations
  • Fire alarm and burglar alarm industry

One of the best things you can do when selecting an alarm and monitoring service for your home is to speak with other customers. They can provide invaluable insight regarding the company, services and more.
