Attention Property Managers: Is Your Commercial Property Secure?

Crime never sleeps! The people who work in your commercial office building depend on you to keep them and their property safe. 1 - Do you know who has access to your building? If you own or manage a multi-tenant office building, then you are particularly susceptible to the dangers of crime. Unauthorized individuals are often free to enter and roam around your property without being detected. By carefully regulating who has access to your property you can ensure you safeguard your tenants from potential theft. By installing managed access control you can make sure that only authorized tenants have access to your property. 2 - Do you have a robust security system installed? If you think you have a robust security solution installed but you are still using conventional CCTV systems then you need to rethink your property’s entire security. By implementing an integrated Sonitrol verified security solution, your property and the tenants within it will be properly...

Three Industries that Should Consider Upgrading Their Security System

Like many companies, security is important to you, which is why you made sure your business had a security system installed. Time has passed and the security landscape has changed – criminals have become more sophisticated and so has the technology that should be protecting your business from them. Organizations often become complacent, and only realize that their security system is no longer enough after a security breach.

It’s Time to Implement a Better Security Plan

When was the last time you updated your security system?     Here are four reasons why your business should focus on implementing a better security plan: 1 - Old technology is easier to crack. Criminals are going to love your business if you are using old technology to secure your premises. Conventional CCTV cameras that are still used widely, merely record what’s going on and offer far less protection that innovative new technologies. CCTV is pretty much only good for viewing crimes, such as theft and vandalism, after the incident has happened. Criminals know how to get around these systems and CCTV alarms merely act as a timer, telling the criminal they have at least 20 minutes until police show up. Verified alarms, on the other hand, have prevented criminals from getting away with thousands of crimes that would have been devastating for the businesses involved. Verified alarms have almost ZERO FALSE ALARMS unlike conventional alarms...

The True Cost of False Alarms

If you have ever had a false alarm, you know the personal stress it has caused you – needlessly worrying about the safety of your property and the inconvenience of having to sort out the problem, as well as the frustration of the time spent dealing with an issue that actually wasn’t even an issue at all. If a false alarm results in a call to the police or other emergency services, it isn’t just the time and money of the emergency services that will be wasted - it could also now result in a fine for your business.  Police responses to false alarms cause thousands of dollars, wasted materials and resources that could have been used to respond to genuine emergencies. This can be easily avoided, especially when considering that some of the most common reasons a false alarm is due to human error, improper installation and faulty equipment. Police forces are clamping...
