Are You Doing Your Part?
It’s no secret. Much like the graceful zebra is a tasty target for the mighty lion, businesses are a big, (more like HUGE) target for burglars. However, unlike that lion, they do not rest. Burglars are on the prowl day and night, looking for opportunities in their everyday routine. Now, they may not be the smartest (they are breaking the law after all) but what they lack in common sense, they make up for with the uncanny ability to scout out the tastiest, easiest prey. Sometimes the most simple of tips can be the most vital. Electronic Eye Security wants to keep your business safe and sound. In Part One of our Business Theft Prevention series, we will uncover five of our best tips to prevent your business from ending up front page news for all the wrong reasons.
Business Theft Prevention Tips
We start off with the most basic of our business theft prevention tips. Have the primary door locks changed when you move in! Or better yet, install a Genius electronic door lock to track who comes and goes AND at what time. You can find information on the Smart Locks HERE.
Speaking of door locks, all exterior doors should have quality cylinder locks. Preferably electronic ones with anti-bump locking deadbolts. They may be a small piece but they’re an important part of the puzzle!
Also, exterior door frames should be reinforced so they can’t be kicked in. It is best to have these doors made of metal.
This next one may not be relevant to all but it is still VERY important. Roll-doors should have chain lock and lock levers installed on both sides of door and be securely fastened when not in use. If leaving a roll-up door open for air ventilation during the day, be sure to have a gate installed to prevent easy access.
Last, but certainly not least, make sure that your warehouse doors swing completely closed and self-lock (even during business hours) to prevent easy external access.
