Our previous article discussed some safety strategies to complement your business alarm system, including incorporating keyless entry, strategically placing indoor and outdoor security cameras and ensuring all areas are properly lit.
As we previously discussed, business security systems with alarm monitoring are an excellent and effective line of defense. Here are three more strategies that complement your business alarm system and help deter crime.
Keep Blinds Closed After Hours
Whether your business is an office full of cubicles or retail establishment, keeping blinds closed after hours is advisable and helps avoid instances of criminals who are “window shopping”.
Install Motion Detector Security Lights
Motion detector security lights not only deter criminals, but they also provide additional lighting so suspicious activity can be better captured on indoor and outdoor security cameras.
Watch for People Who Frequent the Area
If either your employees or indoor / outdoor security cameras capture a person who frequently visits without making a purchase or loiters in the area, then that could be a sign of someone casing the building. Alert employees of this person’s suspicious activity. Make sure your indoor and outdoor security cameras are in working order and retain archives of the videos showing their suspicious activity in the event a crime is attempted or occurs.
