Top Security Tips to protect your business property
1. Intruder Alarm & CCTV
Test your alarm and CCTV today to make sure that it is fully functional and update your key-holder information. Any changes with regard to nominated key-holders must be communicated to your 24-hour monitoring station and Alarm Response Service provider.
Good security lighting is an excellent deterrent for clear visibility from inside and outside the premises increasing the likelihood of intruders being noticed. Set up timers before you leave.
Ensure that your security provider Signage is displayed on the perimeter of your business premises stating that it is CCTV / Alarm Monitored on a 24/7 basis. This is also a deterrent.
4. Mobile Patrols & Alarm Response
Discuss mobile patrol options and alarm response with your security provider.
Regardless of which industry your business belongs to chances are that it has been affected by the current situation in some way. Whether you are closing up for one night or a few weeks, it’s important to have a good security plan in place.
