See Your Home Through the Eyes of a Thief to Keep Your Property Safe 

By | Alarm System, Helpful Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

When you look at your house, you see the place you call home, the place where you raise your family and the place where you sleep soundly every night. But when a burglar looks at your home, he or she sees a house full of valuable items to appropriate and resell.

As a law-abiding citizen, it may be hard for you to think like a criminal. But if you want to protect your home and your family, it is important to see your home with the cold calculating eyes of a burglar. Seeing what the bad guys see when they look at your home is the best way to secure your property and keep criminals outside where they belong.

Light and Darkness

One of the first things a burglar looks for is a safe place to hide away from the prying eyes of neighbors and passersby. If they can find a secluded spot to hide out, they can case your house and look for a safe way in. If not, the would-be thief is likely to move on to a more tempting target.

Wait until dark, then go outside and look at your home with the steely gaze of a burglar. Are there dark shadows and places to hide, or does the exterior lighting make the property look too risky? If the lighting outside your home creates a tempting target, it may be time to go shopping.

Something as simple as a bright spotlight above your front door and pathway lights out front could be enough to convince a burglar to go elsewhere. You do not have to spend a fortune to brighten up your home, so there is no reason not to do it.

Watch the Windows

Even the most unsophisticated burglar knows that your doors will likely be locked after dark and when you go out for the evening. That means they will be looking at the windows for a way in.

Take a look at your windows and put yourself in the mind of that would-be thief. Have the shrubs been allowed to grow up alongside the windows? Does that overgrowth create a ready hiding place for burglars and other bad guys? If so it may be time to get out the hedge trimmers.

Putting yourself in the mind of a burglar is not an easy — or a comfortable — thing to do. Even so, thinking like a bad guy is the best way to protect yourself, and your family, from harm. Knowing what thieves are looking for is the best way to see the flaws in your security system and fix them before it is too late.

3 Surprising Benefits of Video Surveillance Technology

When it comes to business security, video surveillance has long been considered a must-have for crime prevention. While real time video monitoring is a best practice surveillance model, some business owners may balk at investing in this technology. Here are three surprising benefits of video surveillance that may help you convince key stakeholders of the importance of surveillance technology. 

 

  1. Staff can focus on their jobs knowing a deterrent is in place: Without a video surveillance system, staff must focus on identifying threats. Their attention can be divided, leading to a decline in performance and productivity. When all employees know that a real time video monitoring system is in place, they won’t worry so much about taking on the responsibilities of threat monitoring. Staff can then perform better by focusing on what they truly need to do, and the business remains protected from threats. 

 

  1. Visible cameras are a first-line defense: Most thieves “case the joint” before they steal anything. A would-be thief who passes by your warehouse or office will see the real time cameras clearly mounted outside the business. The mere presence of these cameras will make any thief pause and reconsider targeting your business. Just by investing in video cameras, you can deter theft in the first place. In some cases, you may be able to lower insurance premiums by demonstrating that you have a strong surveillance system to deter theft.  

 

  1. Surveillance makes insurance claims easier: While you don’t want to suffer a business loss, of course, it can happen even with a good video monitoring system in place. In the event that you must make a claim with your insurance company, surveillance footage can streamline the claims process so you get you your funds faster. 

 

The cost of protection is a small price to pay for peace of mind that your business assets and intellectual property are protected. Thanks to a wide range of video surveillance tools, including surveillance as a service tools, business owners can best protect their premises at a price point they can afford.
