Commercial Security

As You Reopen Your Doors – Check Your Security!


Throughout the latter part of May, idling business owners across the country waited anxiously to get the “go ahead” to open their doors to the public once again. As this approval came through in many states, business owners excitedly reopened their doors, thrilled to have a way to earn a living again.

However, with these businesses reopening, inventory and cash are moving again. While this is great news for business owners and the economy, it can also be enticing to potential burglars.

With all the other challenges presented by COVID-19 for business owners, now is the time to take notice and take steps to protect your future revenue. Therefore, it is a great time to check out your existing security and determine if an upgrade is needed.

Protecting Your Business

As stores continue opening, there has been a wave of robberies and break ins throughout the area and the country. While any store or location can be targeted, it seems like convenience stores are a popular option for nefarious individuals right now. While this is true, it does not mean that other business owners should not be reevaluating their own security and safety protocol.

Preparing for Safety

With all the variables involved with opening your doors again, it is essential you ensure your business location is as risk-free and secure as possible. Some things to check out and updated (if needed) include:

· Ensure all electronic security infrastructure is operational

· Physically secure your business location

· Protect your network from potential cybercriminals

· Rethink procedures to accommodate social distancing and the use of face masks

Even if you currently have an alarm system in place, consider adding another layer of security such as video monitoring or access control. This will help you have even more peace of mind that your newly reopened business is safe and secure.

Geofencing and Smart Home Security: What You Need to Know


Geofencing allows you to control your home’s security, temperature, and lighting all by following your regular, day-to-day routine.

Chances are, when you get home from a long day at work, all you want to do is relax. However, when you walk through the door, there are a few things you must do. For example, you may be trying to save money while away by turning off the lights and up the AC. Now that you are home, turning on a few lights and cooling things off is necessary. Even when you adjust the temperature, it will take a while to reach a comfortable level.

There is a better option. This option lets you walk into your house after you have been gone all day and go right to your favorite spot. You do not have to worry about anything – temperature of the room, lights, or even home security.

Geofencing handles all this for you – and so much more!

Geofencing and a Smart Home Network

If you have a smart home, you can use interconnected devices to handle things like temperature, lighting, and security. You control these items remotely and they will communicate with one another the same way. The best smart home elements will be linked together using a hub or control panel giving you the ultimate control over what is going on in your home.

You can set up geofencing to work with these devices. Geofencing is a virtual boundary or perimeter. You specify the boundary in a web portal or app by giving the software permissions to access the location of your smart phone.

What Benefits Does Geofencing Offer?

Once you have set up geofencing, you may be surprised about how much it can do. Some of the most appealing benefits offered by geofencing include:

· Ability to remotely secure your home

· Save energy and money

· Dim lights

· Adjust appliances

· Arm or disarm security systems

If you are not sure how to set up geofencing for your home, contact your security system provider. They can help you use all the benefits of this innovative technology.

Innovative Methods to Use High-Tech Window and Door Sensors

Intrusion sensors are part of most modern security systems. Motion sensors, glass break sensors, door sensors, and window sensors all use innovative technology that helps you protect your home and family. While this is true, they can do much more than just detecting an intruder. You can use these devices to help alert you to events that may not be directly related to your security.


Safeguard Vulnerable Assets with Door and Window Sensors

In approximately 34% of all burglaries, the individual will come in through your front door. Some of the other common points of entry include back doors and windows. Wireless window and door sensors let you lock down your home in an unobtrusive, yet effective manner.

However, using these sensors for their intended purpose is not the only option you have.

Protect Property and Family with Sensor Placement Creativity

Along with your windows and doors, you can use these innovative sensors to monitor any area or part of your home that opens or closes. Some of the top ways to use these sensors include:

· Put sensors on liquor cabinets, gun cabinets, safes, medicine cabinets, and other locations where you do not want others (i.e., the pet sitter, nanny, child, etc.) getting into.

· Use notifications on door sensors to keep tabs on who is coming and going from the home.

· Install sensors on your children’s bedroom doors to know when they leave their room.

· Leave windows open and know if they are moved to allow access for a person.

As you can see, window, door, and motion sensors have an array of uses beyond what they are designed for. Try using these in your home to see the benefits they offer and the added security they will provide you.
