Tips for Stopping the Five-Finger Felons

 

Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-68279fb6-6432-4105-a099-57119377ba3c-v2Each day, in any town across the country, up to 20 incidents of shoplifting occur. However, these are just the reported cases. With these types of significant numbers, there is no surprise that small businesses are feeling the consequences of these five-finger felons the most. As a result, many businesses are looking for ways to stop the shoplifters.

 

The first step to preventing these occurrences is to create a solid set of “best practices.” For example, if you run a store that sells cartons of cigarettes, or other “behind the counter” items, they should not leave the shelves until they have been paid for. This decreases the opportunities people have to simply walk off with the merchandise. However, more effective than that is integrating intelligent security systems for your business that will constantly monitor the premises of your retail location.

 

Now you may wonder what exactly needs to beDescription: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-be9895ee-6d31-49a2-a6a7-b8577e6f43d6-v2 installed to create this state-of-the art security system for your business. There are three main elements you should implement, and you can add on additional features as the need arises.

 

Video Security Systems: There are a number of modern systems that offer wireless cameras, which are easy to move and relocate when needed. This feature of the system will provide recording and play back services allowing you to have a better chance of catching a shoplifter.

 

Burglar Alarms: Not all stores are open 24 hours a day, which leaves them vulnerable to break-ins. A monitored burglar alarm will allow the police to be called if a disturbance occurs. Additionally, burglar systems are a huge deterrent for would-be thieves in the first place.

 

Access Control Systems: Do you have areas that are off-limits to customers and certain employees? If so, installing an access control system can provide you with the ability to keep out anyone without the code or key. This is beneficial for offices, safes or other locations inside of your business that should not be exposed to the public.

 

The fact is that these five-finger felons come in all shapes and forms, such as a career shoplifter who is trying to “score big,” a clandestine nighttime break-in or an internal till thief, the key to combating these criminals is to have the right security system in place.

Tips to Ensure Electrical Safety in Your Home

 

Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-0d72f989-05f4-4552-805e-2ccbadff920f-v2Each year a significant amount of damage is caused by electrical fires. In fact, fire departments in the United States, on average, respond to 25,900 fires that have electrical origins.

The fires are estimated to cause 280 deaths, over 1,000 injuries, and over a billion dollars in property damage and loss.

 

The fact is that homeowners lose much more money each year due to electrical fires than nonelectrical fires. In many cases, an entire home can be lost due to these types of fires.

 

The primary cause of electric fires include extension cords, overloading the circuits, misuses of your electrical appliances, wiring that has not been installed correctly and defective appliances. Any fire that is caused by faulty wiring can quickly get out of control, before you have time to take any type of action. In many cases, the fires are difficult to put out, since they are burning inside your walls.

 

The good news is that there are a numbeDescription: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-2fadb1cf-ac16-44eb-933c-f2c8bfc87e81-v2r of steps homeowners can take in order to avoid electrical fires in their home, which include:

  • Don’t overload your outlets. This means you only plug in one appliance at a time to the wall outlet.
  • Replace any frayed electrical cords. When you purchase new ones be certain they have a certification label.
  • Never place electrical cords under furniture, carpet or rugs. The cords can overheat, causing a fire.
  • Never use extension cords for your appliances. It is important that you plug them right into the wall outlet.
  • Don’t overload your power strips. Only plug a few low-current devices into the power strips you use.
  • Use the services of a professional electrical technician. If you need any type of electrical work completed, it is important to have a licensed electrician do it to ensure your home is safe.

The most important thing that you can do to protect your home and family is to ensure you have a monitored fire system that has backup radio monitoring.

If you are like a number of people getting your kids to school and getting ready for work, and finally rushing out the door leaves you half way to your destination wondering if you locked the door. 

The good news is that with the latest in home technology, you can have remote access, to have peace of mind that, yes, your door is locked.

When you install a remote access feature for your door lock, you will have the ability to both lock and unlock your doors from anywhere via your tablet, smart phone or other internet connected device. Some of the other benefits of this technology are as follows:

 

Notification when someone comes in your Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-5e1f40a4-9843-4588-8a2c-a9e49765735e-v2home. You can program your remote access to send alerts when your loved ones get home and monitor people who go in and out. This could be a baby sitter, house keeper or contractor.

 

Control the times that other people can come into your home. Do you have someone coming to work in or on your home at a certain time? If so, you can create custom codes and a schedule that will only allow that person to have access to your home during those particular times.

 

Be prepared for any unexpected or unplanned events. If you are away, on the road or on vacation and something goes wrong or happens inside your home, you can provide remote access on a temporary basis to anyone who needs to get inside.

This technology gives you peace of mind and complete control of the security of your home and family.
