    Does Your Company Have an Enclosed Parking Area that Needs to be Protected?

    Enclosed parking lots contain expensive vehicles and valuable contents. This leaves car owners and their passengers particularly vulnerable to becoming the victims of theft, violence and other criminal activities such as vandalism. In fact, closed parking garages are frequently becoming the favored “hunting grounds” for thieves and vandals. That’s why business owners who manage their own closed parking lots have a big responsibility when it comes to the safety and security of their customers and employees. With so many security solutions on the market, how does your business know which one will work best for the specific design of your parking lot? The threat to people and property in enclosed parking garages is significantly higher than the threat in open lots. That’s because isolated floors often make it difficult to implement effective surveillance and monitoring systems. Criminals find it easier to hide. That’s why many closed parking lots, also known as garages, either control...

    Are You Aware of the High Cost of False Alarms?

    Did you know that 94 to 98 percent of all alarm activations are false? With each of these false alarms, resources are wasted and avoidable pressure is put on the responding authorities whose time could have been better spent on real crimes and community outreach. Had the alarm been VERIFIED before the necessary teams were dispatched, this wasted time and money would have been saved. That's why an increasing number of jurisdictions are moving towards false alarm penalties as a means of incentivizing business owners to upgrade their security systems. What is a Verified Alarm? Unlike conventional alarms, where you have no way of knowing what level of attention is needed until someone goes to the property to see why the alarm was triggered (which is where the responding authorities come in),verified audio and video security solutions enable professional alarm operators to hear and see what is happening in your business - allowing them to...

    Benefits of a Security Access Control System

    Every business owner wants to know that their business is safe at all times. Having that peace of mind can be critical in preventing criminal activity. The majority of burglars, roughly 83%, said that finding out whether a business had an alarm or not would determine whether they would attempt to rob that business.

    5 Benefits of an Alarm System for Businesses

    It is important for all businesses, big and small alike, to install a commercial security system. Having put your sweat, time, and capital in your company, the last thing you want is a burglar breaking in and making away with any of your company’s assets. Burglaries are common in North America. A study published by the Center for Retail Research and conducted by The Global Retail Theft Barometer ascertained that U.S. businesses lose about $45 billion from inventory theft every year. This is a sad affair given that small and big businesses are the backbone of the economy of the United States. To prevent and tame this trend, most business owners rely on commercial security companies such as Sonitrol Security of Delaware Valley to provide them with an alarm system for businesses.

As a result, both chain and independent restaurants have struggled over the past few years, with many restaurant businesses closing down. To stay competitive, loss prevention is crucial.
