Commercial Security

The Myth of the One-Size-Fits-All Security Solutions

When it comes to your business, or commercial property, a one-size-fits-all security solution is never going to work or provide the protection and peace of mind you need. What is right and what works for one business, is probably not going to be right for yours.

For example, if you have a retail store, you need solutions such as an electronic article surveillance system, while bigger corporations that operate in an office environment have no need for this. Rather than trying to buy a standard, cookie-cutter security solution, you need to focus on the custom solutions your business needs.

Some of the specific reasons you need to avoid the one-size-fits-all security solutions are found here.


Businesses are All Sizes

Regardless of the size of your business – large or small – you need security; however, your business’s size will impact the solutions that are used.

A larger business, for example, that has over 500 employees, will likely find than an access control system will be extremely beneficial in helping protect their assets. However, if you run a smaller business, with under 10 employees, then investing in an access control system probably wouldn’t make much sense.

Businesses Have Unique Risks

Another reason you need a custom security solution is that each business will have its own, unique risks. Corporations are likely focused on data protection and cyber security while retailers are more focused on preventing shoplifters. This doesn’t mean that you don’t need cyber-security solutions, too, but that may not be your primary risk.

To determine exactly what risks your business has, consider the following:

  • What are your business assets?
  • Who can access your assets?
  • How and where do you store your business assets?
  • Data regulations and the commercial property considerations.

When you fully understand what your business risks are, you can better plan a custom security solution that focuses on protecting these assets.

It’s important to work with a security company that treats your business as an individual entity. This will ensure you get the security solutions you need, without having to settle for those sold in a one-size-fits-all, customized solution.

Home Security Tips for the Holidays: Gain Peace of Mind this Holiday Season

The best thing you can do to protect yourself, your loved ones and your home is to install a quality security system. But there are a few other things, you can do, too. Use the tips here to have a fun and safe holiday season.

Keep All Travel Plans Offline

Millions of people plan to travel during the holidays. The best thing you can do is keep these plans off of social media. Don’t post where you are going, when you plan to leave, or when you are going to be back.

This information is invaluable to a thief – after all – it tells them when your home is going to be empty. Even if you have one of the most expensive, highest-tech security systems in place, you still need to avoid posting this information online.


Let Your Neighbors Know

If you do have plans to go out of town, be sure you tell a trusted neighbor. Ask them to keep an eye on things while you are away. You may also want to ask them to pick up your mail or newspapers.

A great way to further protect your home is by investing in automation – such as a motion sensor light or smart lightbulbs you can turn off and on remotely.

Hide Your Gifts

While you are probably going to want and keep your gifts out of view from kids, it’s also a good idea they are hidden from a thief, too. While placing your pretty, wrapped packages under the tree may look nice, it’s also a welcome invitation for a burglar. Try to keep things hidden as best you can.

The holiday season is supposed to be fun. Make sure it isn’t ruined by using the security tips found here.
