Keeping your property and the things you possess safe and protected is no mere feat. It’s always better to be a tad paranoid, than to welcome all circumstances with arms wide open, because you never know when you might also wind up being a victim of burglary. Yes, chances do vary from place to place, but that shouldn’t exempt anyone from being a potential casualty and consequently that should prompt you to do something about it. If you run a business, here are a few propositions that can bolster your safety measures and keep things in check.
Cameras and security lights
A camera is the mother of security because it allows you to monitor your premises from a distance. No matter where you are at the moment, wireless technology has enabled us to keep track of everything. All you need to do is install your new set of eyes, either somewhere hidden so that only you know what area it covers, or somewhere obvious since it can be quite a burglar deterrent. Should a thief try his luck, you can record the entire deed and use it as proof that crime has been committed.
If your business is somewhat secluded or is located at a dark alley or car park, a security light is always useful. Just fit in a motion sensitive light and it will reveal the culprit for cameras to capture clear footage should he/she attempt to sneak in. Now you don’t need a ton of wires to connect everything, latest tech makes it all fit in much easier.
Homes, shops, stores, offices and the like nowadays have a fitting modern security system to protect themselves. Roller shutters, too, are quite useful to seal off your property once you or your staff leaves after work. Not only do they reduce insurance premiums, but they can also prevent damage to your business. This security addition is particularly useful if you go on a holiday or during weekends, because it gives you a sense that you’ve protected the entrance.
Biometric door locks
Keys can be lost, duplicated, spares can carelessly be kept somewhere obvious, so you never really know just how much risk is there with a regular lock. No matter how good they are to seal a door shut, biometric locks, on the other hand, can save you the trouble of dealing with keys. They look like your regular door knob, but there is a sensor fit inside that can read up to 100 fingerprints. It can also record times and dates when someone enters, you can keep track of timekeeping and despite the cost, it goes a long way in terms of practical security.
As we all know, they are perfect for hiding something valuable, large amounts of money and whatever else needs to be stored and protected. Once you install one, all you need to know is a specific code, so be careful with whom you share it with. If you don’t have one, it’s recommended that you buy a CMI safe because you never know when your most precious things might need additional security if burglars break inside. Just keep it hidden, out of public.
You can purchase the regular, loud and high-pitched ones, where you have to enter a code soon after entering your property, or you can install an audio monitoring center. Companies’ computer systems are constantly being monitored by trained operators who will respond almost instantly should an alert come in. The police will consequently be alerted immediately via wireless technology and you will be informed of the situation on your mobile phone or computer. The best thing about it is that the response rate is high so there should be no worries.
