“We set the standard for security and surveillance”
Top 5 Burglary-prevention Tips
1. Get a home security system.
In the United States, homes without a security system are three times more likely to be burglarized. That’s because burglars want to get in and out with your valuables with as little hassle as possible—why risk getting caught by a security system when they could just move onto the next house without one? If you protect your home with a security system, it sends a message to burglars that your home is not to be trifled with. To take your safety to the next level, protect your home with a security system.
2. Lock your doors and windows.
Sometimes deterring burglars is as simple as locking all your doors and windows. You’d be surprised by how many burglars gain access to homes by finding neglected entry points. Many homeowners in the United States think, ‘A burglary will never happen to me,’ so they fail to take small safety measures to protect their homes. Even if you leave your home for a short while, you should lock your doors and windows every time you leave.
3. Keep your yard trimmed.
Untrimmed bushes and untamed grass can be a signal to burglars, notifying them that you’re out of town and your home is ripe for robbery. Overgrown shrubs and trees may also provide cover for burglars to hide while they try to break into your home through a door or window. If you’re proud of your home, then take care of your yard, and if you’re going to be out of town, hire a neighbor or landscaper to keep up on lawn maintenance.
4. Participate in a Neighborhood Watch program.
Secure your community with a Neighborhood Watch program. If your neighborhood doesn’t have one, take measures to start one. If there’s already one in place, find out where and when they meet, and become a more informed citizen. Neighborhood Watch programs help people get to know their neighbors, strengthen the security of their neighborhoods, and find new ways to watch out for and report crime. Contact your local law enforcement agency to find out about neighborhood watch programs in your area.
5. Consider a guard dog.
A pet can not only be a best friend but also provide an extra layer of security to your home. Intruders hate dealing with pets—especially dogs—so a noisy pet can be a great asset. Burglars prefer to attract as little attention as possible, and if a noisy guard dog alerts the neighborhood that something’s amiss, then intruders will most likely back off, for fear of being caught.

It’s tax season! Avoid becoming a victim of tax identity theft
Better Business Bureau (BBB) urges consumers to be smart during tax identity theft awareness week
It’s that time of year again. Over the next few weeks, W-2 forms will show up at your work desk or in your mail. And while the thought of a hefty tax return could be a happy one, the consequences of filing your taxes the wrong way is not.
This week is Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week, and your Better Business Bureau serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin along with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) encourages taxpayers to take time and use caution when selecting a tax preparer you can trust. It’s important to avoid mistakes that could result in additional fees, or even tax identity theft. That happens when someone uses your Social Security number to get a tax refund, or even a job.
According to the FTC’s 2013 Consumer Sentinel Network Data Book, statistics show tax identity theft accounted for over 30 percent of all identity theft complaints.
According to the FTC, tax identity thieves get your personal information in a number of ways, including: going through your trash or mailbox; through emails asking for information, which appears to come from the IRS; employees at hospitals, nursing homes, banks and other businesses stealing data; and phony or dishonest tax preparers misusing confidential information or passing it along to identity thieves.
To lessen the chances of becoming a victim of tax identity theft, the FTC has the following advice:
- File your tax return early. Do it before identity thieves have a chance to steal your information.
- Use a secure internet connection. If you file your return electronically, don’t use unsecure, publicly available Wi-Fi hotspots.
- Shred documents. This includes copies of your tax return, drafts, or calculation sheets you no longer need.
- Check your credit report. Do it at least once a year for free at annualcreditreport.com to make sure no other accounts have been opened in your name.
Additionally, BBB offers the following advice for taxpayers looking for a tax preparer:
- Get references and do your research. Get referrals from friends and family on who they use and check out the company first at bbb.org to see its BBB Business Review for details about complaints, customer reviews and any advertising-related concerns.
- Look for credentials. Ideally, your tax preparer should either be a certified public accountant, a tax attorney or an enrolled agent. All three can represent you before the IRS in all matters, including an audit.
- Don’t fall for the promise of a big refund. Be wary of any tax preparation service promising larger refunds than the competition. Avoid any tax preparer who bases their fee on a percentage of the refund.
- Think about accessibility. Many tax preparation services only set up shop for the months leading up to April 15. In case the IRS finds errors, or in case of an audit, make sure you are able to contact you tax preparer at any time of the year.
- Read the contract carefully. Read tax preparation service contracts closely to ensure you understand issues such as how much it is going to cost for the service, how the cost will be affected if preparation is more complicated and time consuming than expected and whether the tax preparer will represent you in the case of an audit.
- Ask Around. Find BBB accredited tax preparation businesses in your local area. There are over 300 BBB accredited tax preparation businesses serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin. Check out bbb.org to find a BBB accredited tax preparation business near you.
Access Control systems are about more than monitoring doors; they are an integral part of any security system and give users a convenient platform to manage their facilities. Traditional keys cannot track who or when people are accessing your building, and when keys go missing rekeying locks can be extremely expensive. Keyscan Access Control systems solve all of these problems and many more, including:
- performing a facility or area lock down from any PC or Keyscan reader
- bringing motion detectors, glass breaks, door contacts, panic buttons into Keyscan to track and assign alarm conditions from a single interface
- calling up live video in the event of an alarm
- arming or disarming an intrusion panel via the access control system
- triggering a wide range of devices using Keyscan auxiliary relay outputs to trip such items as sirens or strobes all based on certain events/conditions
- creating a map with active icons to annunciate system status, control doors, call up video, show employee photos as they pass through protected doors, and much more
- run a myriad of custom reports when you need to know who accessed what area and when
