It’s the most wonderful time of the year, people are at ease over the holiday season, enjoying friends and family, and businesses tend to experience an increase of activity and revenue. In the past homes were the most vulnerable to burglaries while families were away on vacation, however small businesses are also vulnerable to a wide variety of different security threats, ranging from shoplifting to burglaries to robberies and identity theft. Below are some ways to protect your home & small business from these security threats to ensure that your holiday season is a happy and prosperous one.
Install a surveillance system that fits your specific needs.
A complete video surveillance system first allows you to remote monitoring your home or business when you are away. Enjoy peace of mind 24/7 as you can keep an eye on your home or business remotely from your PC, iPad and mobile devices from anywhere anytime. It also provides evidence which can be turned over to law enforcement officials.
Install cameras at exits, registers and blind spots
Burglars will see the cameras and decide that there is too much risk. Consequently they will think that your home or business is not a good target and move on.
Install a dummy/fake camera in a spot where people are sure to see it
Saving money is one of the most obvious benefits when it comes to a fake or dummy camera. Install it in a spot where people are sure to see it to scare away a potential intruder or vandal, you must “shout” out to them in some way that they are being watched! And that’s exactly the perception you need to fool a thief with a dummy camera.
