Commercial Security

Tips for Commercial Security System Maintenance


As a business owner, you fully understand the importance of having a physical security system in place. This protects you, your employees, your business, and your investment.

However, just having a security system is not enough. You need to ensure it is properly maintained so it operates properly and provides the expected level of protection. Regardless of if you plan to invest in a new security system or have one in place, you must know how to maintain it.

Check the Locks

Your first line of defense is the locks on your doors and windows. Take time to go through your building weekly or monthly and check the door and window lock contacts. Make sure they are clean and working properly. If there is a problem, determine if repairs are possible or if a replacement is the best course of action.

Software Updates

It is also a good idea to check with your security system provider to see if there are any software updates you have missed. Updating your security software is a crucial part of keeping things safe and secure.

Check Batteries

If you have security devices that require batteries, check them often. When the batteries are no longer working, be sure to replace them to keep your security equipment working properly.

Check for Obstructions

Be sure your motion detectors and video cameras are clear from any obstructions. This includes things like trees and bushes, dust, cobwebs, and more.

By taking time to maintain your security system, you can feel confident that it will continue protecting your business and property.

Residential Security

Tips for Securing Your Rental Property


If you own rental properties, you know you face unique challenges when it comes to sufficient security. You must account for your tenants and their privacy rights. While this is true, securing your rental property is also similar to securing your home. You must have the right services and equipment to ensure the job is done right.

While this is true, you still may need some tips and information to secure your rental properties better.

Invest in Professional Monitoring

Professional monitoring services will connect your rental property’s alarm systems and cameras to a professional monitoring location. If an emergency occurs, like a fire or break-in, the monitoring station will determine what triggered the alarm and contact the authorities.

Also, with professional monitoring, you receive fewer false alarms, insurance benefits, and plan options.

Provide Smart Security Equipment to Your Tenants

In many cases, the weakest link in your rental property’s security is your tenant. They can forget to lock the door or close the garage.

The last thing you want is to worry about what your renters have forgotten to do. A great way to combat these concerns is by installing smart security tech in your home. Some of the options to consider include:

· Smart locks

· Smart garage door openers

· Smart doorbells

· Remote lighting

Each of these is going to improve the security of your rental property.

By taking the right steps and investing in the right technology, you can feel confident that your rental property or properties will remain safe and secure.

3G vs. 4G vs. 5G: Do You Know the Difference?

Cellular technology is continuing to change and evolve. 3G, 4G, and 5G represent the third, fourth, and fifth generations of this technology. The difference between each of these is primarily based on what each is capable of.

Each of the new generations improved:

· Accessibility – increased range of service

· Network volume – higher bandwidth

· Speed – lower latency


However, this is just a very basic and simple explanation of what makes each of these cellular offerings unique from one another.

Speed Differences

Each generation offers top speed options.

· 3G reaches network speeds of 7.2 Mbps

· 4G reaches speeds of 150 Mbps

· 5G will eventually exceed 1 Gbps

The speed varies based on if you are using a stationary browser or if you are in a moving vehicle.

Bandwidth Differences

This determines the total amount of traffic the cellular network can handle before it slows down. Like speed, this has been improved with each new generation.

With 3G and 4G bandwidth, speeds will likely reduce during peak hours each day. With 5G, though, it is possible to stream anything, at any time, with no real delays.

Accessibility Differences

Every new generation expanded on the existing infrastructure of the prior generation. The result was a noticeable increase in internet accessibility. It is predicted that even isolated parts of the U.S. will eventually have 4G or even 5G access.

As you can see, while each generation of access provides benefits, 5G is considered the fastest option with the fewest issues. Today, though, it is not yet available everywhere; however, it is predicted that the availability will continue to spread as the technology continues to evolve.
