How Plant Security Systems Save the Industry Millions

Although Colorado seemingly offers a comparatively safe environment in which to operate a business, property crimes obviously do occur here. For example, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, nearly 25,000 burglaries took place in 2013. These offenses exact tolls in the industrial plant sector, but we can show you 2 primary ways in which security systems for small business manufacturing plants and large plants alike save the industry money.

Deterrence

Smiley faceWith Colorado burglary rates consistently declining during the past 8 years, some people may conclude that security systems are becoming decreasingly important. However, these statistics may just help illustrate the excellent return on investment these products provide.

For example, studies indicate that homes and businesses with no security system are 300% more likely to experience a break-in, due to the understandable eagerness on the part of criminals to enter premises with no alarm. A recent decrease in these types of crimes can likely be attributed to an increase in security, including plant security systems.

Lower probability of criminal attention to your plant means less likelihood of theft. Furthermore, it means less chance of expensive property damage. With approximately 50% of Colorado burglaries involving forced entry, the break-in itself can be costly, even in the absence of actual theft.

More importantly, burglaries can result in violent physical crime, the costs of which are astronomical. One estimate of medical and mental health expenses caused by all crimes in the United States suggests that they exceed $18 billion.

Restitution

Smiley faceIf a theft or other crime is committed at your plant, having security footage increases the chances of quick apprehension and successful prosecution of the perpetrator. A criminal conviction will then require that the guilty party make financial restitution for any damages.

Because your plant is private property, you must take the responsibility to monitor it. Fortunately, police forces are increasingly eager to partner with business owners who use surveillance cameras. By allowing you to pool resources with law enforcement, these cameras, as well as other security products, increase the possibility of crime avoidance and clearance.

New Homeowner? 6 Ways You Can Help Secure Your Home and Protect Your Family and Assets

break-into-house-orig

 

Are you the proud owner of a new home? Congratulations! Hopefully, you are taking the steps necessary to protect your new investment from crime. According to the F.B.I., In 2013, there were an estimated 1,928,465 burglaries in the United States, and 74% of those burglaries were residences. There once was a time when simply locking your windows and doors was all that was needed to secure your home—but this is no longer the case. We have to approach the idea of home security while covering all bases to truly be protected. Here are some tips to help:

1.     Close the curtains and blinds at night.

Leaving the curtains or blinds open at night (whether the lights are on or off), is simply welcoming criminals to take a look at what you have inside.

2.   Install motion-activated lights outside.

Motion-activated lights are fairly inexpensive, will deter burglars, and will also help add some extra light to assist your infrared night vision security cameras.

3.     Install a Security Camera System.

Install security cameras in your home and outside to protect yourself. If your house is burglarized without cameras, good luck in finding the culprits—however, with security cameras, you may be able to identify the criminals, pinpoint the time of the burglary, and assist the police officers with their investigation.

4.     Install a security Alarm system.

The combination of security alarms and security cameras is nearly foolproof in deterring thieves and bringing them to justice.

5.     Invest in shatter-safe unbreakable security windows.

This will prevent burglars from entering through what is usually one of the most vulnerable areas in houses- the windows.

6.     Get a Best Friend.

Dogs are one of the best alarm systems around. They can detect an intruder long before you can, and the barking will usually scare away an intruder before they even try to break in.

Surveillance Systems in Schools

After all of the school violence in the past 10-15 years, parents and communities have requested more and more security for their schools.  Recently we are hearing of schools installing not only access control but also surveillance systems to be sure that no one goes in or out of the building undetected.  They are installing cameras and duress buttons so that in the case of another violent act they will be able to communicate with the outside world without risking the lives of any of the students or personnel in the building.  As parents, the most important job we have is to keep our kids healthy and safe and when they are out of our sight this becomes the job of those we trust our kids to.  Children as young as 2nd and 3rd grade have been reported bringing weapons to school and then you hear about outside threats like what happened in Sandy Hook where a family member of one of the teachers came in and killed 20 children and 6 adults.  As a result of this, the schools need to be protected better.  With surveillance systems in place the evidence to put these criminals away will be right in front of their eyes and could very easily deter the criminals from acting on their intentions in the first place.  Crime is going to happen no matter what because we have a society that has in so many ways devolved and the best way to respond is to protect the people and things we love the best we know how.  At least with a surveillance camera the perfect crime is becoming a thing of the past.

Cameras, however, do not only need to be in our schools to protect our kids.  With our economy the way it is and the cost of living going up more and more parents are both working and even more of them are single parents.  We have no choice but to work full time to support our family and maintain a comfortable lifestyle.  So more children are home alone after school and in that case a bigger target for thieves and criminals.  What better way to ensure that your kids are safe and secure then to be able to watch over them from your phone, tablet or computer at work?  With a remote access surveillance system you can log in from anywhere and check on your home and your children anytime and be sure that they are free from harm and even make sure they are behaving the way you expect hem to when you are not home.

If you would like to get a free in home evaluation to see how a surveillance system could help you and your kids and give you the peace of mind you deserve, please contact us and we will be happy to come take a look and get you set up to protect your family.
