Commercial Security

Commercial Security System Primer: What Options Are Available?


In any commercial setting, having a security system is a smart move. This helps protect the building and everyone who uses it from nefarious individuals and entities. However, as a business owner, you have a lot to consider. One of the most important considerations is which security system is right for you.

Before being able to choose a commercial security system, it is important to learn about the available options. Some of the most common used today can be found here.

Access Control Systems

This type of security system determines who is allowed to enter an office building or another commercial space. This is done with an access card or code that is given to each person allowed to enter the area.

Video Surveillance and Security Cameras

Having mounted cameras in your commercial building can help your security team know what is happening in specific areas. They will also be able to monitor the security of the building’s interior through the video footage captured.

Alarm Systems

A commercial building alarm system is the perfect option for deterring criminal activity and let you know if a breach occurs. The alarms may be directly connected to the locking mechanisms on a door, or they can be triggered by specific events that occur on your property.


A door contact sensor can be installed to let you know when a door is opened and when it remains ajar. For spaces that are considered high security, your business may want to install microwave, laser, or infrared sensors, which provide more advanced security.

Fire Safety and Emergency Systems

When it comes to commercial building security system, you need to ensure that proper fire safety and emergency detection equipment has been installed. In fact, this is essential to remain compliant with the local safety requirements in place.

As you can see, there are a lot of options when it comes to commercial security systems. Be sure to consider what would be most beneficial for your business when choosing what to install.

Residential Security

What Should You Do if Your Home is Burglarized?


One of the worst events you can experience is a homeowner is arriving home to find you have been burglarized. After all, you home is supposed to be your “safe place” and the location where you feel most secure. When this situation occurs, you may wonder what to do and where to turn. While it can be a difficult situation, there are certain steps you should take to restore your home’s security and your peace of mind.

What to Do Within 24-Hours of a Home Break-In

At this point, your home is considered an active crime scene. While it may be tempting to pick up the mess the burglar made, you should resist this temptation. If you do this, you may destroy any evidence they left behind. Instead, take the following steps:

· Call the police to file a report

· Review the footage on your security camera and give it to the police

· If you don’t have a security camera, take photos of the scene

· Create a list of anything missing

· Call your insurance company

If it has been several days since your home was broken into, you can likely take a few other steps. This includes:

· Boarding up and securing any broken doors or windows

· Review the footage on your security system one more time

· Call to have a security system installed to restore your peace of mind

There is no question that a break in can be devastating. Not only will you lose valuable items, but you will also lose your peace of mind. Knowing the steps to take after a break in will help you secure your home and family.
