Tips to Prevent Commercial Security Mishaps
From pawn shops to general retail stores, no business owner ever dreams that their store could ever be burglarized. However, commercial theft is a genuine threat to any storefront, and taking proper steps towards security is essential.
Although many business owners know that they have to focus on the security of their stores, avoidable security mistakes are still made. Here are some tips that you can follow to prevent these security mishaps from impacting your staff and property.
Schedule Regular Maintenance
Your security system may be built to last, but not without maintenance. Annual maintenance is key to your system’s success because even the slightest hiccup in performance could cost your location thousands of dollars in damages.
Schedule a visit from a professional security team every year for preventative maintenance and general repairs. A business like The Security Center, Inc. can visit your property and test your systems, check batteries, and clean up equipment that’s been exposed to the elements.
While you may think that these tasks are simple to perform on your own, security systems require a professional hand during maintenance to ensure that no further damage is done to the hardware.
Create Reminders to Set Your System
The work day gets busy and one of the easiest mistakes to make as an owner is to forget to arm your security system before leaving your site. Set an alarm or create a daily calendar reminder to arm your system at around the time you usually pack up for the day. This is a simple tip, but one that is easily forgotten in a rush.
Remove Attractive Valuables From the Public Eye
If your commercial property sells valuable items like cars, electronics, or jewelry, get these valuables out of sight when your shop isn’t open. Burglars love to window shop, and a storefront with easily accessible goods behind a window is the perfect setup for an easy steal.
Set Time Aside to Study Your Technology
Not knowing how your security system works is like leaving the front door open for theft. Even if you don’t want to read through an entire manual, reach out to the security team that installed your equipment. They’ll be able to walk you through all of the bells and whistles that come with keeping your property secure.
We prioritize this aspect of customer service. With every system installation we complete, our professionals always help clients gain a complete understanding of how their system functions.
