    What Are the Top 3 Benefits of Digital Video Surveillance?

    Theft can be incredibly costly to any business. However, it is especially devastating in retail environments. For example, North American retailers lose up to $45 billion worth of inventory from shrink (goods being lost, damaged, or stolen) every year, according to the Global Retail Theft Barometer published by the Center for Retail Research. While some shrink is unavoidable, having a digital video surveillance system on your property can greatly reduce the costly risk of theft in retail settings. Below are some ways a commercial security system can benefit your store’s bottom line. Natural Deterrent Most large, retail chains have video surveillance equipment to protect both their inventory and their staff. However, many small businesses cannot justify the expense of digital video surveillance, whether because they only have a small space or because there isn’t room in the budget. But these are the situations where theft is most likely to take place—when there...

    3 Reasons to Invest in a Commercial Security System

    Having a commercial security system is the best way to prevent any property from potential threats like burglary, theft, and unwanted intrusions. However, many commercial properties may find business alarm systems to be an unnecessary or unwanted expense, or simply too much of a hassle to install or maintain. But with the current, advanced, and sophisticated technology offered by many commercial security services, investing in an alarm system for your property has never been easier. Below are some of the most important reasons to install a commercial security system. Preventative Measures Often, the visible presence of a security system in the form of security cameras or digital video surveillance is enough to deter unwanted intrusions. For example, a study of convicted burglars showed that about 83% of the offenders would attempt to determine if an alarm was present before attempting a burglary. A CCTV camera solution that is part of a verified...

    5 Common Threats to Commercial Security

    Commercial security services are essential to any property, whether it's a business, school, office, or other commercial property. Before choosing security services, it is important to learn more about common threats to commercial security and how to choose the best security options. Intrusion/Theft Theft is one of the most common threats to commercial security. The best way to protect your assets is to invest in a top-notch security system. Many alarm systems have a built-in delay before contacting your monitoring company that can range anywhere from 30 seconds to three minutes. Choose a security company that provides live monitoring from a central monitoring station to guarantee immediate detection in the event of intrusion. False Alarms False alarms are a risk to your security because they are a waste of time for both you and law enforcement. Protect against false alarms by choosing a fully integrated security system that provides operator verification when your alarm...

    5 Factors To Consider When Picking Commercial Surveillance Systems

    The 2016 National Retail Security Survey by the National Retail Federation (NRF) in partnership with the University of Florida showed that 38% of inventory shrink is attributed to shoplifting, with employee theft contributing to 34.5 %. While the shrink percentages have dropped over the last decade, the monetary cost due to the shrinks continues to rise. According to the NRF, the losses arising from the inventory shrink were $48.9 billion in value. Commercial surveillance security systems can help you nab the shoplifters and rogue employees, deterring further crimes. You may need to pick the right burglar detection system and CCTV camera solution that addresses your security concerns fully. Here are five factors to keep in mind when picking the right solution for you. 1. On-site Vs. Cloud-based Vs Hybrid Surveillance Commercial surveillance involves the strategic placement of security cameras, audio detection systems, and alarm controls across your property. You can then monitor movement or...

    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. Reduced False-Alarm Rates Conventional business alarm systems cannot verify what triggered an alarm to go off. According to two researchers from Temple University, 94 to 98% of all alarm activations are false. False activations may place unnecessary pressures on you, the emergency responders, and the taxpayer as it results in wasted time and resources for all parties involved. An audio-based intrusion detection system utilizes small audio sensors...

    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...

    3 Key Benefits of a Security System for your Business

    Each year, businesses lose large amounts of money due to employee theft and shoplifting. You can help to protect your company and its assets by having a commercial security system installed. These business security systems come with various elements such as security cameras, access control systems, alarms, and direct alerts to law enforcement that all work together to keep your business safe. You can help to deter crimes before they happen and keep your staff safe with convenient monitoring and alarm services. There are countless benefits associated with having a security system installed for your company. Some of the most common advantages include: Prevent Burglaries It’s common for burglaries to occur during night and weekend hours when businesses are often closed or have minimal staff on duty. Research shows that even with impulsive burglaries, over half of the intruders said they would leave the scene if they noticed or heard an alarm...

    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. But the unfortunate reality is that burglary is not the only means through which funds and products can be stolen. Inventory shrink is the loss of product, and though 38% of it can be attributed to employee theft, another 34.5% can be attributed to employee theft. This means that employees are either taking advantage of gaps in surveillance systems or perhaps even entering buildings when they should not. 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. The Federal Bureau of Investigation reports that there are roughly 2.5 million burglaries in the U.S. every year, and in 2016 almost 9% of small businesses were the victim of a break-in and burglary. If you are a business owner, these statistics can be a scary reality. However, with a commercial security system, you can help protect your business and scare away would-be thieves. In a study conducted with convicted burglars, 83% explained that they would try to determine if alarm systems were present before attempting a break-in. This means that just having an alarm system in place can help deter ill-intentioned visitors and keep you safer even if it’s never triggered. In addition to an alarm system, access control systems can also help keep both your business and...
