Hello everyone, this is your local locksmith writing to you about the the different options you can use to secure your business. As you know crime rate is not a major concern yet for our region however with urbanization crime rate is known to increase slightly depending on the nature of the area. As a recent crime increase might not be a concern to Waterloo Police there are preventive actions taking place.
Securing your business is important and we are here to help you do so:
Tip 1: Secure your doors and windows, check for volnurable spots within your store and make sure to secure those “weak spots”. Anything that can be easily bypassed will be tampered with and your best bet is to secure that flaw whenever you get the chance.
For example: Your back door entrance only has a knob, if your back entrance is poorly lit then it creates a potential spot for burglars to tamper with. Secure it with an additional slide bolt or a dead bolt lock for better resistance. This and other are many of example which we encounter with every day.
Tip 2: Install CCTV inside your store/restaurant. Not only great for survailance purrposesbut also helps to manage the employees better, if you are not concerned with your employees well at least a record proof tape of an unfortunate incident can save the day so do cinsider.
Tip 3: Motinoryour keys, as hads come and go you need to keep a good track of who has the keys and can they be copied. Numerous times our local Waterloo locksmith was needed because business owners were forced to re-key their entire business due to lack of control for their keys. Some keys can be easily duplicate and you will not have a trace and trusting new employees with your business keys might be a risky move. In case of a controled key you keep that confoidence, the keys must be retrived and cannot be duplicated without an ownership card.
Tip 4: Consider installing alarm system to allert local authorities of any potential incidents in your business. After all the alarm service will call local enforcement for you and alert them, the response time might vary but it is a fair shot if you plan to alarm your intruder that enforcement is coming.
Tip 5: Lit up the place, make sure that the place is lit with a motion sensor lights. There is no point investing in expensive outdoor cameras if you can’t get a clear birhgtshot at the scene. Sure many expensive security cameras offer an amazing quality of footage, nothing make quality better than a bright shone of surprising fliash light right on the spot. Busted!
