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.

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.
