June Newsletter

In just a few short weeks, summer will officially be here! If you’re planning on traveling at all during the warmer months, be sure to either pause your mail or have your neighbors pick it up for you so it doesn’t look like the house is unattended. For longer periods away, shutting down the power to your garage door and making sure your lawn is mowed are also great ways to help protect your home.

Finally – be careful what you post online! Anything that lets people know you’ll be away from your home for an extended period of time is an invitation for someone to break in.

The Evolution of Commercial Security in the Face of Smart Buildings

Today, your commercial building is much more than just a structure. In fact, they are full of complex technologies and systems. One of the factors that has had a significant change on the way buildings are inhabited is smart devices.

Want to learn more? If so, keep reading to see how smart buildings have caused an evolution in the commercial security realm.




Constant Awareness

With more and more building systems being internet connected, there is now a greater awareness of what’s going on inside than ever before. With video analytics, you can now monitor people on-site, and send notifications to specified users if something happens. Also, as buildings become smarter, the analytics will be able to find and identify behavior patterns while predicting scenarios. This allows you to take action before situations become actual security threats.

The Integration of Security Systems

In today’s digital age, what used to be a combination of several security systems can now all be connected to a single, easy to use and convenient platform. As a result, you have the ability to make faster decisions and have more efficient security management in place. As the platforms continue to evolve, they may even begin to interact with each other, which means that an activity that is triggered by one of the systems automatically triggers a designated action in another.

Insight to Resource Use and Occupant Behavior

With the integration of building security systems, it means that data is able to be analyzed in the moment, and over time. This allows your security team to better understand patterns or occupants and to optimize and refine the security measures in place. As you can see, building automation and smart technology is having a huge impact on commercial buildings. If you have yet to implement this technology, now is the time to do so.

Residential Security

Summer Safety and Security for Your Kids




Summer is here, which means you have to make the decision of whether or not your child is old enough to stay at home alone, while you are working or running errands. According to experts, most kids are ready to stay home alone by the time they are 12 or 13 years old.

However, despite your child’s age, you are the only one who can determine if they are ready to stay at home, alone this summer.

If you decide that this option will work for you and your family, you may want to use the security tips here, to provide yourself with a little more peace of mind.

Install Video Surveillance

If you don’t have a security system installed in your home, now is the time to consider this. Thanks to advances in technology, you can utilize high quality video systems that provide you with remote access. This allows you to see what is going on at all times, and you can even set up alerts if something unusual happens – such as a door or window opening, or movement outside your home.

Install a Smart Doorbell and Locks

Another feature to consider installing is a smart doorbell and smart locks. With a smart doorbell, you can remotely monitor who comes to your door. This allows you to answer – even if you aren’t there. As a result, your child won’t have to worry about handling this situation on their own.

Smart locks are also a smart feature. This allows you to lock or unlock the doors to your home, regardless of your location.

Talk to Your Kids

The best thing you can do is talk to your children about safety and security before they stay home alone. It may be a good idea to create some ground rules and ensure everyone is on the same page. If your child is old enough to stay home alone, make sure to keep the information here in mind. Doing so will help ensure that they are safe and that you aren’t constantly worried about what is going on while you are away.

If you are like most people, you likely have your smartphone by your side, at all times. The fact is, these little devices are capable of some pretty amazing feats. From translating speech to monitoring your heart rate – the abilities are boundless. Today, this little device can also be used to remotely lock and unlock your doors – regardless of where you are.




With the additional security and convenience provided by today’s mobile technology, a smartphone locking system is becoming more popular for commercial access and entry. Learn about some of the specific benefits this technology offers for your business here.

Tailored Access

One of the main advantages offered by the installation of a keyless entry system is the ability you have to customize who is able to get through the door, and when they can gain access. Since each employee has a unique access code, device or card, employers will be able to customize who has entry rights to a door. They can even make adjustments regarding when someone is allowed to enter, ensuring that certain people can’t gain access to restricted areas or enter a building after hours.

Digital Records

Another benefit offered by keyless entry and the use of a smartphone system is that these systems can keep accurate records of who is using the door. There is several advantage s to this; however, the records can also be used by your HR department for tracing your worker’s hours.

Higher Levels of Security

While you may be worried about digital security and hacking, you can’t forget about the physical security of your building. This comes back to the door locks you have in place. With mobile technology in place, you can utilize encryption to help guard against break-ins. Additionally, when you are able to integrate your smart lock with your current security system, you can feel confident that you have seamless protection for your commercial property.

If you have yet to install a mobile lock for your business, now is the time to consider doing this. It will help provide the quality protection your business needs and give you additional peace of mind.
