October 2015 Newsletter



It's hard to believe that summer is over and fall is here!  With school and practices in full swing, make sure to arm your alarm system while you're out.


Also, with Halloween this weekend, remember safety first!  If you are trick or treating, make sure to carry a flashlight and never go to homes that don't have a front light on. If you happen to stay home passing candy out to ghosts and goblins, bring your candy bowl to the door. Don't invite strangers (even kids) into your home. Have a wonderful and safe Halloween!


We hope you enjoy reading this newsletter. Remember, never hesitate to contact us about any security or safety issues, residential or commercial.

Is Your Business Disaster Ready?


Do you think your business could survive a flood, hurricane, fire or another type of natural disaster? The fact is, that up to 25 percent of businesses that are forced into closure, will never reopen after a weather-related disaster.


While there is no way to reduce the potential for a natural disaster, there are a number of steps that can be taken to help protect your business. Creating and sharing a disaster recovery plan with your employees, will help ensure everyone knows what to do when a disaster strikes. Some of the best things to do to prepare for a disaster are:


Identify Potential Problems

Do you live near water? Are you in an area that is prone to wild fires? Itís important to consider each possible disaster and how likely it is to happen. This will help you figure out what you need to be prepared for.


Get to Know Your Insurance Policy

Itís important to figure out what coverage you have for certain disasters and what your deductibles are. There are some policies that donít cover things such as floods or earthquakes. If you are in an area where this is a possibility, itís essential to take note of this and purchase additional insurance.


Create Your Plan

Be sure that the plan you create for dealing with a Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-f4f68675-a0d0-4167-bde6-03115413688e-v2disaster is understood by every employee within your business. Itís essential to have everyone on board when making this type of plan.


Test the Plan

Once you have created your emergency response plan, itís important to test it on a regular basis. Be sure that the issues you have identified are still relevant and new employees are aware of the plan.


Taking the time to plan for a disaster before it happens will give you the best chance possible of recovering successfully. Donít take for granted that it has been years since an earthquake, hurricane or other disaster has struck Ė protect your investment by planning now.

Tips to Stay Safe when You Live Alone


There are a number of benefits offered by living alone. Youíre able to watch whatever you want on TV at any time, and you certainly donít have to worry about a roommate making a mess or eating your snacks!

However, there are also a number of safety risks present when you live alone. The good news is, with a bit of effort you can minimize these risks and ensure you are safe and sound in your home.


Install a Security System

One of the best ways to protect yourself, as well as your belongings, is to install a security system that includes monitoring. Even if you donít reside in a high-crime area, you will have peace of mind knowing that someone is watching over you.


Get to Know Your Neighbors

This does not mean you have to plan a weekly get together, but it can be beneficial to at least get to know their names and phone numbers. Once you are acquainted with them, they will get to know your habits and be more aware if something is wrong.


Find Potential Security Risks

You can inspect your home yourself, but it would be best to call a security company to check for security weaknesses and safety issues. Itís a good idea to Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-5429e1f1-5fea-4239-8af0-e8954c1422b8-v2install deadbolt locks for all your doors, and to ensure your window locks work properly. All exterior lights should work and there should not be shrubs or trees blocking your windows.


When you take some time to evaluate the safety of your property, it will give you peace of mind knowing there are no potential points of entry for an intruder to break in.


Donít Broadcast the Fact You Live Alone

There is no reason to tell the world via social media Ė or any other method Ė that you reside alone. Essentially, that is just asking for trouble.


Regardless of if you just moved, or have been in the same place for years, you should be vigilant at all times to protect your safety and your home. To ensure your safety, use the tips here and contact your local security provider.

Self Driving Cars No Longer a Thing of the Future


Self-driving cars are no longer a futuristic idea. Companies like Mercedes, BMW, and Tesla have already released, or are soon to release, self-driving features that give the car some ability to drive itself.


Tech companies are also trying to pioneer the self-driving car. Recently, Google announced that it would be testing its prototype of a driver-less car on roads in California. The original plan was to create a car that was completely driver-less, but California introduced some new rules this year that stipulated that test cars must also have manual controls (steering, pedals) so that a human driver can take over if needed.


Google's self driving cars are designed to navigate safely through city streets. They have sensors Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-137c4b32-4d89-44a4-9682-7425797ccb0f-v2designed to detect objects as far as two football fields away in all directions, including pedestrians, cyclists and vehiclesóor even fluttering plastic shopping bags and rogue birds. The software processes all the information to help the car safely navigate the road without getting tired or distracted.


If all goes well, Google hopes to partner with a real car maker to bring a self-driving vehicle to market in the next five years. Whether the commercialized driver-less car will look like the overly cutesy Google prototype remains to be seen.
