17 Business Security Tips to Keep your Orlando Business Safer in 2017

Whether you are an Orlando retail establishment, commercial office building, or industrial area, you can promote these safety and business security practices in the office environment.

Here are 17 commercial security tips to keep your Orlando business safer in 2017.

  1. Dial 911 immediately if you notice suspicious strangers loitering in or near your place of business. Do not approach them yourself.
  2. Develop written security practices and an emergency management program. Make sure to include evacuation procedures.
  3. Keep the view in your store clean by not filling windows with multiple displays.
  4. Minimize the amount of cash you keep on the premises.
  5. Make frequent pick-ups of money from registers and make regular bank deposits.
  6. Try not to work alone. The presence of more employees may reduce the incidence of an armed robbery.
  7. Install quality locks on doors and windows. This step includes investing in an access control system that allows you to quickly update entry/access restrictions over your mobile phone.
  8. Invest in a monitored alarm system. Alarm systems are the best defense against property crime and knowing you have a system could be enough to deter criminals.
  9. Always use interior and exterior lighting. Lighting may prevent an intruder from concealing his illegal activities. Motion sensor lighting is an inexpensive way to deter crime at your business.
  10. Install video cameras. Besides catching the culprit, you can deter criminal activity by simply placing the video surveillance cameras in plain view.
  11. Review past incidents of crime and violence on the premises on a regular basis as a means of evaluating your security program.
  12. Smart sprays and smoke. These deterrents leave a color or ultraviolet sensitive residue that can’t be removed from the robber or shoplifter.
  13. Provide adequate lighting in all areas of the building, including hallways, basements, and garages.
  14. Advise security personnel to be alert to the presence of suspicious packages or illegally parked or unidentified vehicles. Make sure they bring all security information to management immediately.
  15. Consider installing security film on lower and first floor windows that face public streets and parking areas.
  16. Restrict access to shipping and receiving areas and provide closed-circuit television surveillance.
  17. Make sure your Orlando security system provider is reputable. One of the biggest benefits of having a small business security system professionally installed. They are able to identify high risk areas, where you need cameras, and best practices based on your location.

Bonus business security tip: Don’t only point the cameras out. The National Federation of Independent Business indicates annual losses due to employee theft cost U.S. companies $200 billion annually. And more than 60% of small businesses experience employee theft.

7 Key Features of a Commercial Security System in 2017

Threats to businesses in Central Florida are constantly evolving. And it has never been more important for firms to remain vigilant when it comes to the issue of security. Commercial security systems are a large part of your business’ security.

Small and large businesses must come up with security strategies aimed at protecting assets. But increasing security at your business should also include the purpose of safeguarding employees by providing a safe working environment.

 

Here are 7 Key Features to Include in Your Commercial Security System:

 

1. Asset tags

Asset tags enable the identification of your valuable equipment through a unique serial number or barcode. Typically, most asset tags look like regular labels that have an adhesive backing.

And most firms that opt to use asset tags that include their company logo on the tag so that it is easy to identify any piece of equipment that goes missing. Asset tags are perfect for businesses that utilize equipment in their daily tasks. They can be used on laptops, phones, lab equipment, and tools. Asset tags are ideal and inexpensive, and they remain on the equipment for its lifetime.

 

2. Commercial security system

Commercial security systems are customized for organizations and businesses that have more extensive operations compared to what you might need at home. Businesses tend to have an office or sales location, a workforce, and probably more high valued items. And so a sophisticated commercial security system is not only essential, but critical as well.

Commercial systems encompass a variety of standalone or integrated configurations. These systems enable you to have video surveillance access control and remote status. Make sure that your business security installation is being customized for your needs.

 

3. Alarm monitoring

Orlando alarm monitoring is an efficient and convenient way for business to maintain communication between the security system and the central surveillance station of your security provider.

In the event of an attack on your business, the control panel on your system registers an emergency scenario and signals the central surveillance station. This in turn notifies and sends the appropriate authorities to your business to investigate or handle the issue.

 

4. Security system installation

A security system is a system of tools that ensure the security of premises or business organization. Security system installation in a new business is one of the first steps that you can take to heighten the level of security.

Studies reveal that companies without security systems installed (when compared to those that have had security system installation and professional monitoring) are up to four times more likely to suffer a security concern.

 

5. Security monitoring

Security monitoring is different from alarm monitoring. Signals and cameras are monitored so that they can reveal discernible actions that can confirm or deny the capabilities and intentions of possible threats.

Security monitoring is essential for any business because it helps to prevent various instances of crime before they actually occur.

 

6. Security cameras

Security cameras are like TV systems. However, instead of transmitting programs and shows, they transmit video surveillance of premises. The signals in security cameras are forwarded to a particular monitoring station or to your mobile device.

Most security cameras today are wireless and are able to send real-time feed and images of your business to your phone or computer at home. Security cameras are an ideal way to protect your Orlando business. They supply you with 24/7 access to the inside and outside of your business.

Today, high-end security cameras are laden with features that make it easier than ever to guarantee the safety of your organization.

 

7. Access control

Access control is a system of security that utilizes electronic technology to control who can gain access to a building or area. Buildings that are secured with access control typically can authenticate, approve and account for the entities that use login credentials. This passwords, biometric scans, PINs, or physical and electronic keycards.

Access control for your system is either physical or logical. When physical control limits accessibility to physical buildings such as campuses and rooms, logical is used. But logical controls limit connections to data, system files and your business’ computer networks.

Access control systems are imperative for the security of any business organization, and should be discussed with your security system company.

 

The level and type of security systems implemented depend entirely on your business’ needs and preference. As crime goes unabated each day, business security should be a top priority for every company in Orlando.

2017 Best Home Security Tips

It’s a new year and home security is more important than ever. Our 2017 best home security tips in Orlando can help you keep your home (and business) safer. And when it comes to your safety, cutting corners will end up costing you more than what you believe you saved.

From the right home security systems, to little tips and tricks you can do yourself, make sure your home stays safe and secure by trying these seven tips and home security tricks below.

It’s a great feeling to take charge of your own home security and make sure you, your family, and your belongings stay safe.

Put these Orlando home security tips to good use, and you can relax, knowing you’re secure.

 

1. Always Be ‘Home’

 

This may be the most widely-known tip when it comes to protecting your home from invasion. But having the appearance that you’re home is a great way to deter burglars from your house.

Typically, when someone wants to break into a home, they want the easiest possible experience. That means they don’t want to deal with people potentially being in the home. Their goal is to get in, and get out as quickly as possible.

Simply leaving a few lights, or a television running while you’re away is a great, quick way to make your house look occupied, and reduce the risk of break ins.

A great way to do this is through automatic timers, that can flip on interior and exterior lights at a certain time of day if you know you’re not going to be home.

 

2. Install the Best Security Cameras

 

This may be the most important tip for having the best home security system. Security cameras are not as big and bulky as they used to be, and are actually quite discrete, and easy to use. Insyte Security uses a variety of security cameras in Orlando homes, and they are as user-friendly as cable television.

Cameras can be installed just about anywhere inside or outside of your home, with zoom and tilt options to capture every angle, even in the dark of night. They are a cost-effective way to provide a lot of peace of mind.

Cameras catch would-be burglars in the act so you can call the authorities. But they’ll also give you a clear identity of the perpetrator, so they won’t get away with their potential crime.

 

3. Keep Your Security System Secure

 

Professional burglars know all the tricks when it comes to getting past an Orlando home security system, even if you have the best home security system.

This means having all wiring hidden on the exterior of your home. If your security system has cables, cameras, etc., make sure they are out of plain sight. This keeps anyone walking the exterior of your home from seeing them.

Make sure when your security system is being installed, all cables are out of view around your home.

 

4. Take Your Security With You

 

If you have a security system installed, make sure you know what’s going on, even if you’re not home. A system that can connect to an app, your computer, or directly to your mobile device is a great way to keep track of what’s going on at home if you’re away.

Most security systems today can send you alerts, updates, etc., and is a great way to have peace of mind, even when everything is secure!

 

5. Install Deadbolt Locks

 

Obviously, having secure locks is important when it comes to every door in your home that leads in from the outside. Installing deadbolt locks provides an extra layer of security.

Deadbolts are significantly stronger than typical spring locks, and harder to force open. Make sure to install them correctly so a home invader cannot pry open any space between the lock and the door.

 

6. Secure Windows & Sliding Glass Doors

 

It may seem cliche, but if someone wants to break into your home and they can’t find an easy way through the door, they will try going through the window or patio door.

There are several options when it comes to securing your windows. First, be sure to install locks on each window. Lower or more vulnerable windows can be reinforced with special glass. Use two smaller window panes instead of one larger pane, so it can be harder for invaders to climb through.

Typically, if something proves to be difficult, or will take quite a bit of time, they’ll avoid it altogether.

For your patio or sliding glass doors, reinforce locks by using a metal bar along the track that can prevent home invaders from opening the door. Any metal bar will do. And most can be purchased at your local hardware store.

 

7. Hire the Best Home Security Professional Possible

 

There are many tips and tricks you can do yourself when it comes to the best home security. If you want to ensure its overall safety in the long run, it’s best to hire a professional service as opposed to trying ‘DIY’ security which can have vulnerabilities.

 

Safety tips are always important and it’s great to take charge of your own security. But nothing can beat the technology and extra benefits that come from a professionally installed system.

No matter what type of neighborhood you might live in, and no matter how often you’re home, break ins unfortunately happen all over the country. Keep your home and business safe in 2017. 

Christmas Home Security

Security Tips for Home Safety this Christmas

During the holidays, we don’t often want to think about anything ‘bad’ happening. But, it’s so easy to get caught up in fun festivities, that we ignore the safety and security of our Orlando homes, businesses, etc. Thankfully, there are a few useful things you can do to keep your home as secure as possible this holiday season.

When you put these tips into practice, you can sit back, and enjoy the merriment with friends and family, without worrying about amateur burglars, or professional break-ins!

 

Be Careful With Packages

 

Now more than ever, people are ordering Christmas presents online, and having them shipped to their home. There are two concerns that come with this type of thing, when it comes to your overall security.

First of all, when a delivery driver leaves a package outside your home (on the front porch, etc.), it’s a prime target for a quick robbery. Burglars don’t even necessarily care what’s in the package as they pick it up. If it’s something they can use or sell later, they’ll be happy.

To lessen the risk of your packages being left out, try to schedule deliveries during times you’ll be home. If that’s not possible, make a special request for drivers to drop off packages at the back of your home.

Even if you’ve had no problems with your packages, be careful when throwing them away or recycling them. If you ordered a television, for example, don’t leave the box displaying what it is out in the open for everyone in the neighborhood to see. If a criminal walks by and knows you have a fancy TV in your home, they could plan a break-in.

 

Be ‘Present’ at Home

 

It’s not uncommon to travel throughout the holiday season. If you do, however, make sure not many people know you’re gone! Keep lights on, even on a timer at night, and be careful what you post on social media. If someone knows you’re out of town, it makes it that much easier for them to break in. Make sure your security system is updated and set each time you leave home.

 

Be ‘Present’ With Your Presents

 

It’s a beautiful sight to see a Christmas tree from a window. However, keep your gifts/presents hidden from plain view from the outside. This is just as tempting as a fancy, empty box. A pile of presents is a prime target for a break in.

With these simple holiday tips in mind, you can keep your home and your family safe from harm, and safe from tragedy. Enjoy your holiday season, and make sure you’re taking the proper steps to make it a secure one!

 

Orlando Business Security System

Tips for Selecting a Security System for Your Orlando Business

If you have your own business in Central Florida, keeping it safe and secure should be at the top of your priority list. After all, what’s the point of pouring in your time, money, and resources if you can’t make sure all of it is as secure as possible?

So, most businesses, no matter the size, tend to invest in a quality security system. But, with so many different systems on the market today, it can be tough to choose which one will work best for your business.

Check out these simple security tips to keep in mind when selecting a security system for your Orlando company.

 

1. Review Features

 

If you’re considering a security system, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Small businesses simply can’t afford mistakes in security, because everything is an asset. So, it’s not always a bad thing to go with the system that has a lot of ‘bells and whistles.’ Whether you’re installing a system yourself, or going through a security company, be sure to know all about the features and technicalities the system you’re using showcases.

 

2. Know Your Issues

 

Is your business dark at night? Try adding a lighting system. Worried about people lurking around? Installing cameras could be the best solution. A security system should reflect your business’ individual needs, first and foremost. Think about what features you could benefit from the most, and go from there before you make a selection.

 

3. Who Has Control

 

The beauty of many security systems today is that you can control them off-site. That way, you’ll always know what’s going on at your business, even if you’re not there. Otherwise, some systems can still be manually controlled on-site. Both have different benefits. Again, it just depends on what will benefit your business the most.

The most important thing you can do in selecting a security system is to tailor it specifically to your business’ needs. Talk to an Orlando security company, and work with them to decide which systems will work best to keep your business safe and protected, 24-hours a day.

Orlando Wireless Home Security

How to Choose the Best Orlando Wireless Home Security System

When it comes to Orlando home security, one of the best ways that you can prepare accordingly is with a Orlando home security system. Here’s some of the top factors in choosing wireless security cameras and Orlando home security systems:

High Quality Wireless Security Cameras

 

Look for wireless security cameras that are capable of a high resolution, great autofocus, night vision shots and a high frame rate. This will ensure that you can capture more and in a greater level of detail.

Having a better level of detail in your camera system provides more admissible evidence for court cases and for tracking your property.

 

Expert Orlando Wireless Security Installation

 

First, it’s worthwhile for you to decide whether you want a DIY security system or professionally installed security system. But working with a company that has a reputation in the greater Orlando area for installing quality security systems will make sure that your system functions as it should.

Expert installers deliver some of the best security solutions on the market. But they may also be able to complete the installation in a more discreet way. This means that the look of your home and décor does not need to be sacrificed for you to enjoy great home security.

It’s not enough to just scare off an intruder with noise. The best quality security systems today come with monitored home security and automatic response systems. Your wireless home security can alert law enforcement immediately after break in, house fire, or other major events.

 

Smart Home Monitoring

 

Your wireless security system should be monitored at all times. Connecting to your home security system via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or even online through your secure login makes it easy to check up on your home.

Some advanced wireless security systems even come with home automation systems. These systems allow you to change thermostats, lock your doors, open your garage and more even if you aren’t home.

Consider some of your needs and some of these qualities when you’re trying to pick the best home security system for your Orlando home.

Orlando DIY Home Security vs. Professional Security System Installation

Orlando DIY Home Security vs. Professional Security System Installation

You understand the importance of having a quality security system installed in your house. It can give you peace of mind, provide a safe solution for your family, and keep everyone protected from any possible outside threats.

However, there’s a choice to make when it comes to installing a home security system. Do-it-yourself, or hire a professional to install it for you. Obviously, two big differences come to mind. A DIY solution would likely be cheaper, but having a professional install it would be a lot faster.

 

When it comes to the importance of security installation, though, there are more things to consider. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of both DIY home security installation and professional installation.

 

 

DIY Home Security Installation

 

DIY home projects are becoming more and more popular lately, because of their affordability and convenience of being able to do them on your time, instead of waiting around for someone else. But, they also have their drawbacks. It’s important to know what those are when we’re talking about an important subject like home security systems.

 

Pros Of DIY Installation

 

Save Money: If you’re a pretty handy person by trade, installing a security system yourself can save you the fees charged by a professional company. You can either use that money to buy a better system, or use it toward something else.

A good rule of thumb for DIY-ers is to try a wireless security package. It can be a lot easier to work with and install.

 

Setting It Up Your Way: Security professionals will typically program the systems they install a certain way. While you can tell them your preference, they usually will have their own ‘best’ way, even if it’s not necessarily what you want, and it can be confusing to re-program later on.

When you install it yourself, you also reap the benefits of programming it your way, the first time.

 

Work On Your Time: While you are putting in the time to do a project yourself, there’s also no pressure as to when you need to do it. When you hire a professional, you have to set up an appointment, and potentially wait hours on the day of that appointment for someone to show up.

When you DIY your home security system, you’re on your own schedule, and that can make for a far more relaxing experience.

 

Cons Of DIY Installation

 

You Do The Work: It’s pretty self-explanatory, but DIY means you’re doing all the work. If you’re not as handy as you’d like to be, or want to make sure it’s done correctly the first time, DIY might not be the best option. Experienced installation can help secure you and your belongings.

 

Learning To Use The System: While your system will come with instructions, it can sometimes be easier to hear how to use it from a professional, explained in simpler terms. When you do it yourself, you have to learn it yourself, as well.

 

 

Professional Home Security Installation

 

The biggest reason many people choose Orlando professional home security installation is because of the convenience factor. But it can also cost a bit more than simply doing it yourself.

Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of letting an Orlando professional do the work.

 

Pros Of Professional Installation

 

Peace Of Mind/No Work: Again, the convenience factor is the biggest thing to consider in hiring a professional. Not only is there no work for you, but you can know that the job has been done correctly without any second guessing.

 

Discounts/Guarantees: Many companies provide certain product discounts, and even product guarantees that don’t always come with installing systems yourself. If your security system goes down or breaks, having a guarantee in place can save you a lot of money in the long run.

 

Expertise: A professional will know not only how to install the system, but can show you how to program it and set it up, and inform you of all the system’s features. Setting the correct angle for security cameras alone can be worth the investment of a professional installer. This keeps you from relying on a manual, etc. to guess what your system can do.

 

Cons Of Professional Installation

 

Scheduling Appointments: While you can usually schedule an installation appointment for a time that works for you, chances are you’ll be taking some time out of your day to wait for the installation professional. Without the right security company, appointment times can sometimes be an inconvenience.

 

Cost: Even if you can manage to get a discount on the product itself by using a professional, installation fees can sometimes be extremely high, depending on the company. If money is a concern, professional installation may not be the best option.

But keep in mind that security is an investment in both your family and personal belongings. So it may cost more to have a system that doesn’t work properly.

 

 

Choosing The Right Orlando Home Security For You

 

As you can see, there are both benefits and drawbacks to both methods of home security installation. The best thing you can do is choose the option that fits your needs, and ensures that your home security system is installed correctly, and effectively.

If the driveway has multiple newspapers or the mailbox is full of mail, it gives an indication of an empty home to the criminals. You should either pause your mail or ask a relative/neighbor/friend to collect stop by.
