3 Advantages of Verified Business Alarms

Alarm systems can be found in one out of every seven businesses. However, the majority of these systems are equipped with a built-in delay before your monitoring company is contacted. The length of the delay can range from 30 seconds to as long as three minutes. Verified security systems have changed that, and Sonitrol describes three advantages of choosing verified alarm systems for your business. 1. False Alarm Reduction. Between 94% and 98% of all alarm triggers are false alarms. By offering two unique types of verified alarms (audio intrusion detection and live-monitored video), the number of false alarms is greatly reduced. Unlike conventional burglar detection systems, verified alarms are closely monitored by trained specialists. By carefully listening and watching, they're able to use this technology to distinguish between a false alarm and a burglary in progress at your business. 2. Valuable Footage of Events. Verified video systems provide video footage of events before and...

Why a DIY Security System is Bad For Business

If you're a business owner, your organization's success is probably your top priority. It's understandable that you'd be concerned about your bottom line and make efforts to eliminate any unnecessary expenses. Unfortunately, that could cause you to make poor decisions regarding your office security. In today's digitally powered world, there are DIY tutorials for just about everything. But just because it's possible for someone to handle a task themselves doesn't mean they should. Trying to set up and maintain your own commercial security products will often result in unintended and negative consequences. Let's take a look at a few of the risks you might take by DIYing your office security system, rather than working with a professional security company. You Might Install Products Improperly Alarm systems, video surveillance, and other essential components of any office security system should be installed by the professionals. When you attempt to do this yourself, you could very well overlook the...

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. By implementing an integrated Sonitrol verified security solution, your property and the tenants within it will be properly...

Preventative Measures: How Security Cameras Can Mitigate Employee Theft

As unfortunate as it may be, commercial security systems aren't only there to deter and detect outside thieves. While it's true that shrink forces North American retailers to lose up to $45 billion worth of inventory every year, a good chunk of that number comes from within the business itself. Approximately 75% of employees have admitted to stealing from their employers at least once, and -- with no verified security systems or surveillance cameras in place -- many have been able to get away with it. Let's take a look at three ways installing business security systems can prevent and stop employee theft. A Simple Act: In many cases, it doesn't take much to school errant or crooked employees into either obeying the rules or quitting. The very act of installing surveillance cameras will be enough to remind them that you can see their every move, and may make them think twice before...

Three Industries that Should Consider Upgrading Their Security System

Like many companies, security is important to you, which is why you made sure your business had a security system installed. Time has passed and the security landscape has changed – criminals have become more sophisticated and so has the technology that should be protecting your business from them. Organizations often become complacent, and only realize that their security system is no longer enough after a security breach. If you work in one of the following three industries and haven’t taken a good look at your security system in some time, it may be time to consider an upgrade to ensure that both your organization and resources are protected. 1 - Retail stores If you own or manage a retail store of any type, you know all too well about the threats your store faces on a daily basis - employee theft, shoplifting, break-ins, vandalism and more. While there was a time when CCTV and a lock and key...
