Top Signs It Is Time to Upgrade Your Business Security


As a business owner, you have a lot of things to do and think about daily. This means that you may not think much about your security system or surveillance system – until, of course, you need them. Unfortunately, at this point, your security tech may be outdated or obsolete.

Now is the time to consider if you need to upgrade your business security. Some of the top signs it is time to do this can be found here.

The Inability to View or Record Activities

If you cannot view or record what goes on in and around your business, there could be trouble. This is especially problematic if you have a customer-facing business, like a retail store or restaurant. With all the rules and guidelines around social distancing, you may have to show that you are following the set rules.

Your Business Has Grown or Expanded

Has your business grown or changed since you had your alarm installed? Did you move to a new location? Have you expanded? Do you have adequate protection? It is essential to re-evaluate the current security infrastructure to make sure it matches your business growth.

The Inability to Respond to Risky or Disruptive Situations in Real-Time

Nefarious individuals can strike your business at any time. It is also important to note that with all the restrictions that have been imposed because of COVID-19, some people are more disruptive than before. Having a high-resolution surveillance system that provides you with a 24/7 access feed is essential to ensure you can address issues as they occur.

Now is the time to upgrade your business security features. Failure to do so may put you, your employees, and your customers at risk.

Tips to Protect Your Home Deliveries This Season


COVID-19 has impacted the world and turned things upside down. However, for online retailers, something good has come out of this pandemic – the growth of online buying has shot up. If you are one of the many online shoppers, you will likely have packages being delivered to your home all season long. While this makes shopping convenient and safe, your packages may be at risk – porch pirates are a real thing, and the holiday season is full of opportunities for them to strike – especially this year.

In fact, these criminals are so bold that they will grab packages in broad daylight. You must take steps to combat this threat by protecting your home and packages. Keep reading to learn more about how you can protect your packages this season.

Tips for Protecting Your Deliveries

While your packages may be at risk, there are a few steps you can take to protect them. These steps include:

· Ask delivery drivers to hide the packages in a pre-arranged location.

· Invest in an anti-theft package box or parcel box for the season.

· For Amazon deliveries, send your package to your vehicle using Amazon Key.

· Please keep track of your packages to know when they are delivered.

· Ask neighbors to get packages left when you are not at home.

You can take the security of your packages a step further by installing a motion-activated or doorbell surveillance camera. This system will help you apprehend thieves after they have struck if you happen to fall victim. These can also help to discourage nefarious individuals from stealing, to begin with.

Have a Happy Holiday Season

There is no question that the holidays are the busiest time of the year when it comes to deliveries. While this is true, you can be a victim of parcel delivery any time of the year. As a result, it is a good idea to continue with the tips here throughout the year to protect the items you order online.

Security Technology That Can Help You Find Lost Items

Did you know that the average person spends up to 10 minutes per day looking for items they have lost? That is approximately 2.5 days each year trying to find lost car keys, wallets, glasses, and other items that have seemingly vanished into thin air.

Even worse, these same people are spending more than $2.7 billion each year to replace the lost items. However, it is 2020 – there is no reason that you should waste your money to replace the items you have lost. There are several tech tools you can use to help you keep track of your most valuable items. Keep reading to learn more about them.


Tile Mate for Your Keys

This is a small plastic square. You can add it to your key ring and never lose your car keys – or any other keys – again. The Tile is connected to your smart device and will let you know where your keys are located when you press the button on the connected app.

Lapa for Your Purse or Wallet

The Lapa’s smaller size makes it ideal for slipping between the money in your wallet or in a purse pocket. Similar to the Tile, you connect to the device with an app on your smartphone. However, you can also program the Lapa to beep if you are about to leave without the item you have put it inside.

Orbit Glasses for Your Eyeglasses

Are you continually searching for your glasses? If so, this device is for you. It is about the nickel size and comes with a rechargeable battery that will last for up to a month. This device will sync to your phone and beep to let you know where it is.

Not only are these devices great throughout the year, but they make great gifts for the people on your list that are hard to buy for.
