What’s The Difference Between a Sonitrol Security Verified Alarm and All the Others?

The easiest way for me to highlight the difference between a Sonitrol Security Verified Alarm system and one of the hundreds of conventional burglar alarm systems out there is to walk you through a typical scenario around what happens when an alarm goes off in your business. Let's say you have a conventional alarm installed for your business. It's nothing special but you think you have a system that can adequately protect your business. This is what most likely happens. It's 2:00 am on Friday night and couple of burglars break into your business. It wasn't difficult for them to get in using just a crowbar at the door, or a rock through the window. It's worth noting here that our professional thieves (who represent just 4% of the criminal community - commit 80% of crimes) have successfully done this before and they know they will easily got away with it. Vandals and idiots also do this...

Why Do False Alarms Matter to You?

The following article from a police industry journal seeks to help officers avoid danger in responding to burglar alarms.

How Commercial Security Systems Can Keep You and Your Employees Safe

You can't own a business without the fear of theft. Some may worry about teenagers stealing candy while others may fear boxes of electronics being driven away by trucks. Either way, most companies will install some sort of commercial security system as a precaution. Most alarms are simple signals sent out after a locked door is opened or a window is broken through. The problem with these systems is that most do not alert the monitoring service or law enforcement for a few minutes after the alarm is triggered, to allow for the owner to shut it off if it's accidentally set off. However, these false alarms happen far too often. Over an entire year, police end up investigating up to 38 million triggered commercial security system alarms per year. The vast majority of these instances -- 94-98% -- end up being false alarms. To make matters worse, not only must officers go...

How a Security Alarm Company Can Stop Break-ins Before They Begin

If you own a company or business, it's inevitable that at some point you could face a robbery. Whether it be as small as shoplifting a pack of gum, or as significant as a full on breaking and entering case, there is always some form of theft to worry about. Many businesses have turned to a security alarm company for protection. Many will have alarms set to be triggered upon entry but some are not as reliable as others. Some models of business security systems have a built-in delay before contacting the monitoring company that can span anywhere from 30 seconds up to three minutes. In most cases this is to allow for an owner or employee to shut off a false triggered alarm so that law enforcement isn't accidentally called. However, in actual instances of burglary, this delay can easily allow for robbers to escape, or even to steal some small...

Feel Like Your Company Has Never Been Safer Thanks To Verified Commercial Security Systems

Running or owning business property entails a daunting amount of responsibility, and with it comes the threat of theft. As security systems have improved in an attempt to dissuade more crimes, those committing them have also evolved their methods in order to compensate. Because robbers can innovate and think on their feet, the lack of a human factory has always been the downfall of regular commercial security systems. Simple alarm and card access systems are very common but cannot guarantee crime prevention. When an alarm is tripped, the system automatically contacts the police. Unfortunately there is a significant chunk of time between the initial warning signal and when officers actually reach the location, offering the opportunity for the culprits to escape. Even worse is that in the vast majority of alert activation cases, police are wasting their time considering that 94% to 98% of them are false alarms. It should come as...

A Dependable Security Company Can Stop Robberies Before They Even Begin

A constant worry for most businesses is the threat of burglary. Luckily systems can be implemented by a security company aimed at helping prevent theft and also to catch those committing the crime. It's always better to be safe than sorry, especially when there's money riding on the line. One of the tough aspects of dealing with robbery is that much of it can go overlooked until products have all been indexed at a later time. Out of all inventory shrinkage up to 38% can be attributed to in-store shoplifting, with another 34.5% linked to employee theft. Security systems can catch these small burglaries in the act or at least reveal the identities of the culprits involved. Business security systems have even deterred thefts before they have been committed. Most burglars are wary of alarm systems during the planning phase of a robbery with 83% of offenders admitting in a study that...

Not All Thieves Are Stupid

Here is something to think about with all our new electronic technology. GPS A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green that was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS that had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the...

How To Prevent Employee Triggered False Alarms

You’ve just returned home from a long day at the office only to receive a phone call from your security company alerting you that your alarm system has been activated. A thousand questions go through your mind – is a burglar attempting to steal or vandalize your property? Are your employees safe? Will the police respond quickly? Maybe you’re wondering if this was simply another false alarm. Unfortunately, false alarms are common occurrences for business owners and operators who do not use a verified security solution. And one of the most common false alarm triggers is human error, including employee-triggered false alarms. Employees may trigger your alarm simply by forgetting to de-activate your alarm system or by entering an incorrect code. Or at the end of a shift, an employee may not lock or close the door properly, triggering sensors and detectors that activate your alarm system....
