October 2014 Newsletter

Thank you so much for reading the October issue of the Connection e-Newsletter.

It's official, fall is here!  Don't forget about the day light savings time change. On November 2, we move clocks back one hour.  Most of our devices change the time automatically, but please remember to change light timers. Chances are it will be dark when you arrive home from work and a pitch black house screams no one is home to a intruder.  

 

Please click on the link below to view our new and improved website!  It provides a very comprehensive overview of all our services.  If you have any questions about residential or commercial security, don't hesitate to call.

 

Thank you for being such a loyal customer. We truly appreciate it.

 

Happy Halloween!

 

COMMERCIAL SECURITY

How to Turn Employees into Loss Prevention Allies

Description: Spotlight

 

 

You can't do all the work of shrinkage prevention by yourself. But if you've got an updated security system and your staff on your side, it's going to be very difficult for shoplifters and dishonest employees to steal from you. 

 

Here are a few easy ways to enlist your workers in the fight against theft:

1. Reward employees who take a stand against theft. Whether it's whistle blowing or catching a sticky-handed customer in the act, make it your policy to give back to the people who protect your company. Be clear ahead of time about the specific rewards you offer for their assistance, and let them know that you're counting on them to help make the company successful, for everyone's good.

2. Train employees on loss prevention issues. They need to be able to spot suspicious behavior a mile away. They also need to know exactly what to do (and what NOT to do) if they notice a shoplifter, or a co-worker carting items out the back door. 

An over-eager cashier can quickly endanger himself if he confronts a criminal the wrong way. And the situation can devolve into libel, false arrest, and other liability issues, without the proper procedures. Bring in a loss-prevention consultant, if you need a little help with training.

3. Treat your staff like valued team members. Employees who are paid fairly, appreciated, and included are much more likely to be on your side. Take the time to thank people often and sincerely. Anticipate needs and celebrate milestones. Find ways to have fun and eat together. The more you treat people like family, the more they want to succeed together.

 

Loss prevention is a big task, but with a lock-tight security system and a great team standing by your side, you've got it made.

 

HOME SECURITY

Home Security From The Ground Up

Description: Home Security

 

Home security starts from the floor plan. If you're just starting to think about your new home, you're in a great position to plan for security. Take a look at this list of features, and discuss them with your building contractor while you still can!

 

A clear line-of-sight from the front door to the street. Try to keep the main openings to your home as visible as possible. Pocketed front doors make nice hiding places, where home invaders can take their time getting in.

 

A home fire sprinkler system. These are surprisingly inexpensive, and they will probably save your bacon at some point. Fire sprinklers aren't mandatory in new homes everywhere, but they're still a great investment to protect your life and property. Plus, they get you a homeowners insurance discount!

 

Strong, but beautiful, doors and windows. These days you don't have to sacrifice style for security. Take a look Description: https://origin.ih.constantcontact.com/fs176/1108923216950/img/122.jpgaround at all the beautiful options out there for security doors, and choose one that suits you. Don't forget that the frame is just as important. Discuss the best options for long-lasting, solid framing with your builder. This goes for all the exterior doors and windows, not just the front door.

 

Security from the get-go. Involve your home security company in the build as soon as you can. Your security contractor can help you plan the best strategy possible for wiring and monitoring your home. He may even be able to hook you up with a great fire sprinkler installer.

 

When you plan ahead, you get a home that's both secure and beautiful, with minimal effort and expense. Happy building!

 

TECH CORNER

Lockout Wi-Fi Moochers from Your Hotspot

Description: Spotlight

 

We rely on portable wi-fi hubs more than ever before. It's the epitome of convenience to take your connection with you, even in the most unconnected locales. But it's beyond frustrating to find that the bandwidth you pay for each month is getting siphoned off by wi-fi leeches.

  

That's especially true if, like most people, your hotspot service plan limits the amount of data you can use. So how do you keep out the freeloaders and protect your information?

 

1. Use WPA2 encryption. Some hotspot devices come equipped with WEP, which is necessary if you're using older devices, but if it's at all possible, you need to be on the latest encryption mode, because that's going to be the most secure option.

2. Use your own Pre-shared key. The one that came in the box is not strong or secure enough, so create your own. Make it long, varied, and not something you'd find in a thesaurus. Change it from time to time.

 

3. Don't overshare. Exposing your pre-shared key and your connection to others, even people you trust, can end up putting your information into the wrong hands. If you do decide to share, make sure to change your key again as soon as you're done.
