    3 Reasons to Consider an Audio-Based Intrusion Detection System for Your Business

    According to SafeWise, businesses are four times more likely to be targeted by burglars than residential homes. Break-ins remain a source of worry for most store owners, with one in every ten small businesses reporting theft or burglary. Business security solutions from commercial security companies have been shown to reduce burglary incidences by 67%. You may need to invest in an audio-based intrusion detection system to deter criminals from targeting your assets. Here are three reasons why you should invest in this verified security system. 1.

According to two researchers from Temple University, 94 to 98% of all alarm activations are false.

    Why Sound is Critical for Business Integrated Alarm Systems

    To keep a business secure, it is essential to have a reliable integrated alarm system. It must be efficient enough to detect intrusion without human intervention. Modern equipment utilizes sound, infrared, and video surveillance technology to make intrusion detection effective. Many systems in the past used motion-sensing technologies, but sound detection is proving to be a better alternative for detecting intrusion in business premises and industrial plants. Here is how a sound alarm system works and why it is more efficient than light and motion technologies. Detecting Intrusion with Sound An integrated alarm system may have a sound sensor that can detect noises at varying frequencies. Once the device detects a threat within a predefined boundary, it will send a message that will activate the camera. The camera responds in real-time and sends data to a security center. At the center, a security professional will review the sounds from the audio detection system to...

    5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in a Verified Alarm System

    According to Safewise, businesses are four times more likely to be burglarized compared to homes. Criminals usually target businesses because they realize that they stand a better chance of stealing valuable property. Similarly, business premises are often left unattended for long hours after the usual operating hours, which means that malicious intruders have more time to commit the crime. Verified alarm systems are some of the most effective solutions for burglary detection. Read on if you own a business and would like to protect it using a verified alarm system. Better Police Response Time One important factor that separates traditional security systems from verified solutions is treatment by law enforcement. Police officers often respond faster to verified alerts because they are centralized and monitored by trained professionals. Law enforcement agents have the potential to catch a criminal in the act. Importantly, law enforcement officers will respond faster to burglar detection alerts from companies with...

    4 Reasons Why You Should Update Your Access Control System

    A commercial security system is vital to the success of any small business. Typically, business owners are aware of the fact that burglaries are a threat to their inventory and take the proper steps to install a commercial security system. That in itself can make a big difference for many businesses. Burglars are often dissuaded by the sight of security cameras and alarm systems.

Commercial access control systems were once difficult for even the most advanced security company to control. Even when locks were...

    How Access Control Systems Help You Take Control of Your Business’s Security

    In a perfect world, we would never have to worry about break-ins or robberies. Unfortunately, that isn’t the world that we live in.

In addition to an alarm system, access control systems can also help keep both your business and...
