    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.

    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...

    Why You Need To Take Your Business’s Security Systems Seriously

    The chances of your business being burglarized vary depending on where you live, what your business focuses on or sells, and the current economic climate. People may be more likely to burglarize a store around the holidays, when many are financially stressed and in need of additional money. Furthermore, it's important to remember that not all theft comes in the form of burglary. Employees may also commit theft if they feel that the opportunity is right, or if they are desperate enough. This is why it's important to invest in a comprehensive commercial security system for your business. Although you may not be worried about theft now, it's better to avoid the issue entirely and install commercial access control systems, as well as alarms and surveillance systems that will both prevent theft and make tracking thefts that do occur easier. However, there are certain things that you consider know before investing...

    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...
