While homes are more likely to be broken into during the day, because no one is home, businesses are more likely to be broken into at night. The same logic applies here. At night, no one is usually at businesses, and it is dark, giving nefarious individuals “cover.” If you want to protect your business, make sure to use the tips here.
Implement Video Monitoring
With video monitoring, you can keep an eye on your business – even when you aren’t there. One of the most effective ways to not only deter, but also catch, criminals is by installing quality surveillance cameras throughout the property. Some areas to install cameras include:
- The buildings perimeter
- Near doors and windows
- Inside near cash registers, inventory rooms and safes
Make sure to choose a video surveillance system that provides remote access to the video feed. This allows you to see what is going on, anytime and from any location.
Install Monitored Alarms
When selecting an alarm system, a key factor to keep in mind is the monitoring center it offers. Specifically, make sure to ask about the off-hours monitoring, or other times when you may not be around.
With a monitored alarm, you can feel confident that if a person were to break into your property, a signal would be sent to the monitoring service and the proper authorities would be dispatched. You can even hook up the system to your mobile device to receive notifications if the alarm is triggered.
Nighttime can lead to quite a bit of nefarious activity. However, if you implement the tips and tools here, you can safeguard yourself and your business.
