What to Consider when Selecting a Commercial Security System Provider

image

While it may seem like a straightforward and easy decision, selecting the right security system provider for your business isn’t always so cut and dry. If you live in a location where there are several options regarding security companies, you need to do a bit of research to find the one that best meets your needs. Some factors to keep in mind are found here.


Is the Company Reputable? When a security company is reputable, they are going to have quite a bit of positive feedback from other business owners. This can include online reviews and word of mouth buzz from people who have worked with the company in the past. If the company is known for quick responses to alarms then they can likely be trusted with your security system.



Has the Company been around for a While? Even though new security companies may offer lower prices to help establish their business in the community, you have to proceed with caution. If they are new to the area, there is no way to know the quality of services they will provide. Working with a company that has been in the area for several years provides you with peace of mind they can handle the job at hand.


Is there a Local Office Nearby? Modern security companies come in all sizes from national firms to local companies. Utilizing a security company that has an office nearby your location will allow you to have better customer service. While companies offering “nationwide coverage” may be able to offer lower prices, if you need local help they may not be able to provide you with the help you need.

Choosing a security company for your commercial alarm
system is a big decision. After all, this is who you are trusting with a huge investment. Make sure to consider the factors here to ensure you find the right company to work with.

Tips for Protecting Your Outdoor Valuables

If you have items outside of your home, such as grills, patio
furniture, bikes and other items, you need to take steps to protect them. Unfortunately, these items can be stolen or vandalized if you don’t take the proper steps to secure the exterior of your home.

The good news is, you can find some tips here to help you secure the exterior of your home and keep your valuable items where they are supposed to be.

Keep the Home’s Exterior Well-Lit It is important that you can monitor the perimeter of your home at all times. By adding lights and video surveillance you can do this easily. An affordable solution is to install motion activated lights, which will help you and your guests move around the property at night, but also serve as a deterrent to would-be thieves. If you leave your yard and outside area dark, then thieves could grab anything they
wanted without being seen.

Invest in Quality Security Cameras Another way you can keep your outdoor items safe is by installing security cameras outside your home. Make sure to hire the professionals for installation and to help you figure out where they should be placed. In most cases, installing one to face your garage and any exterior sheds is going to be best.


Maintain your Landscaping In addition to installing lighting and cameras outside your home, security experts have also recommended keeping the hedges and other plants around your property trimmed back and cut somewhat short. People who want to steal your items can use plants that haven’t been trimmed to hide.


As you can see, protecting your outside valuables isn’t difficult, but it does require a bit of effort. If you need help creating an effective plan, contact the professionals for help.

How Technology is Helping to Transform Modern Retail Security

Thanks to emerging technology, modern retail stores are undergoing drastic changes. Some of the latest developments involved the rise of big data, machine learning and even the continually adapting devices – each of which are changing the traditional shopping experience consumers are used to.


The Future of the Retail Industry Retail stores in the future embody an easy and fast experience for consumers. Even in brick and mortar stores, consumers expect a responsive and digital environment, complete with all the same insights they would receive when shopping online. In order to enable this type of consumer experience, retailers need to be ready to invest in tech, which includes digital screens, tablets and Wi-Fi capability.



Alternative Payment Methods In addition to implementing new tech options for consumers, there is also an increase in alternative payment options. Many consumers are excited by the thought of a cash-free buying experience and this is something that retailers need to be ready to embrace. Some new methods of paying offered today include wireless payment terminals and self-checkout stations.




Planning for Generation Z When creating a plan for the future, retailers have to consider tomorrow’s shoppers. Generation Z, which is made up of individuals born between the mid-part of the 1990s and early 2000s are considered some of the most cyber-savvy individuals ever. As they get older, they are going to become more dissatisfied with technologies that don’t work.

Preparing for the future retail
experience requires you to begin taking step now. Increased cyber security, video cameras and new technology should be used to enhance the buying experience for consumers.
