Secure Your Facility After a Burglary

No one ever expects it. You think you’re prepared, that you have taken the appropriate precautions to prevent such a thing to happen. Then your business is burgled. Now what? It is a very traumatic experience when a business gets burgled. You feel as though a part of you has been violated. Important documents, electronic files and/or product could be missing that you may never get back. You must think to yourself, how did this happen? What went wrong? Did I set the alarms? Do I have the right security system? These are all questions that should be flowing through your mind after such a traumatic occurrence. These questions need answers. The first issue that should be addressed is to review your security system. The security system you had was supposed to prevent the burglar from breaking in, so what happened? It was probably a conventional alarm system that wasn’t good enough...

Why Conventional Security Systems Don’t Work

Conventional security systems have been used in the work place for many decades and they still remain popular for many businesses today. However, conventional security systems have security problems that you should be aware of. They are not effective because they are easily beaten and do not receive a Police Response. They may use motion detectors and door contacts but they cause nothing but false alarms and user headaches. This is not an alarm system that a criminal would be afraid of, nor is it a deterrent. In fact, it's widely recorded by Police that conventional alarm systems have a 98% false alarm rate, and therefore the Police either won’t respond or will put their response time lower on the priority list of alarms to respond to. So why even spend the money on a Conventional security system that does not deter thieves or get a police response?  In order to tackle the high volume of false alarms yearly, cities across America have implemented alarm prevention...

Attention Retailers! Be Prepared This Holiday Season

Be Proactive with Your Security This Holiday Season The chaos of the holiday season has already begun. The number of shoppers walking the malls and the streets will grow substantially and rapidly over the next few weeks. Soon, your sales people will be too busy to monitor for loss prevention because they will be helping customers. Whether they're running to the back room to get a certain size, operating the till or just being bombarded with questions, it will be impossible for your employees to monitor your store 100%. This is the time of year where retail theft is at its highest and you want to keep your inventory shrink to an absolute minimum. So what do you do? Most importantly, you should review your store’s security system to make sure everything is working as it should. You should understand exactly what security services you subscribe to, how to use them all, and find out if...

A Few Easy Ways to Beef Up Security at Your Business Before Black Friday

Black Friday is undoubtedly one of the biggest shopping days of the year, but unfortunately, that also means it's one of the most dangerous days for businesses. With such high foot traffic, there's a good chance that property and identity theft could be in the works for that day. However, there are ways to protect your business. Before you decide to miss out on this amazing day of retail, here are a few ways you can beef up your business security before Black Friday this year. Watch the Trash Can If it has sensitive or private information on it, it should be shredded. Even receipts can lead to identity theft, which means that every single one should either be shredded or put into a locked garbage receptacle. Any loose papers should be disposed of immediately and properly to avoid crime. Light it Up Retailers like Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister are known for their uncharacteristically...

When Nobody’s Watching: A Few of the Craziest Things Caught on Security Cameras

The vast majority of businesses in the U.S. have some form of security cameras on their premises for the express purpose of catching thieves and other rabble rousers red handed. However, some business owners have found much stranger things on their security camera footage. Here are just a few of the many crazy moments captured on commercial surveillance systems. Crying Over Spilled Wine If you've ever wondered what breaking over 6,000 bottles of wine looks like, wonder no more. Thanks to the security cameras at a liquor store in Sheboygan, WI, the world now knows. The store's security surveillance captured a 78-foot long shelf unit falling away from the wall and destroying all of the wine on it, with some bottles worth almost $150. Pizza Delivery? Unfortunately, not all pizza deliveries are created equal. In one security camera's footage, a pizza delivery man can be seen dropping the pizza on the ground and promptly trying...

There is a significant increase in break-ins and burglaries during the last two weeks of the year, coinciding with holidays like Christmas and New Year's. If stealing during a season known for gift giving seems heartless, it gets worse. Unfortunately, some of these would-be Grinches and holiday humbugs literally steal from children. If you're not convinced you need professional security solutions, here are a few holiday break-in stories from recent years that will definitely make you want to upgrade your business alarm systems. The Jolly Ham Thief A few years ago in Sydney, Australia, some thieves broke into a warehouse and stole approximately 16 tons of ham and bacon. Their breakfast haul was worth around $90,000 and inflicted a huge loss on the company they stole from. However, in an effort to soften the blow, the thieves left a cheerful note behind that read, "Thanks, Merry Christmas!" At least they had the decency to...

4 Commercial Security Tips to Help Keep the Monsters Out of Your Store This Halloween

Approximately 38% of inventory shrink is the result of shoplifting, a crime that plagues retail businesses of all sizes around the world. However, some seasons are riper for theft than others. Halloween season is an especially popular time for these tricksters to invade your store. Fortunately, a properly maintained business security system can help keep shoplifters out, and not simply by catching them in the act. Even the presence of CCTV cameras and other business security systems can deter shoplifters. Here are a few essential commercial security solutions to help you keep shoplifters from haunting your store this Halloween. Proper Lighting If there's a dark spot in your surveillance video, there's an open opportunity for thieves to step in.

Access Control Systems There's an old adage that locks only keep the honest people...

You Must Protect Your Security Codes

You have taken a great deal of time to invest in an alarm system that is the right fit for your business. You paid for the equipment and now pay a monthly fee to have the system monitored. We've seen a lot of weird things over the years in the name of security, but one that takes the cake - putting a post-it note with the security access number on it - right next to the security keypad!   Everyone who passes by the keypad will know how to disarm your system without causing an alarm. Just because the keypad may be in a private hallway, and may not be visible to the public, that doesn’t mean this is a good idea.  By posting these instructions, you give disarming rights to every vendor, contractor, delivery person and visitor that passes this area. Your security investment is now a waste of money. To help, we've come up...

Evaluating your site for any commercial security system involves a number of different tasks. Here's what you need to know to perform a proper evaluation. Identify Any and All Possible Entrances Any entrance into your building is a security concern. Whether it's a loading dock, a bay window, or the front door, you need to make note of all of the potential access points on your site. Once you've identified all of the potential access points, make a detailed map of your building and note where each one is.
