When it comes to the security of our homes and businesses one thing remains true. The protection of life far exceeds the need for preserving your property though both need to be considered when creating a plan in safeguarding both. Certainly, any security plans made for property needs to secure life but not relegate property to an afterthought.
The best suggestion anyone can give when it comes to securing your home or business is to meet with an expert in the field of security and create a plan that works for your unique situation. Homes are different sizes, shapes, and different logistical issues exist from one home to another. The same holds true for businesses. No two are exactly alike. This means that each will have individual security needs and challenges. Keep in mind the same security measures that are in place in your business are not always adequate or practical in securing your home.
Meet with a professional, discuss your specific needs and concerns, and allow him or her to suggest a plan of action that will cover your security needs. No security measures, no matter how great or small, will work properly without a plan that draws them all together. You will need a separate plan for your home and business security and there are some things that may need to be done in order to secure them both that are unexpected though quite practical once explained.
The act of hiring a professional to help you establish a security plan for your home or business will instill faith in the process. He could point out flaws in any current security features, introduce dangers and risks you may not currently be aware of, and help you understand the process much more clearly than if you were to go it alone and make the security decisions for yourself. A professional will also point out that in most instances proper security takes the efforts of more than one action working together.
If you have only a security camera pointing at the doors it can be easily bypassed. Motion detection lights like the intruder alert alone are great in theory but still leave open spaces that a patient prowler could find easily. Have them work together along with monitored surveillance, an alarm sensor on every window and door, as well as panic buttons located throughout your location (in the event that there are family members or workers present) and you have a much better chance to deter potential security breeches.
Do not overlook the importance of fire safety, storm safety, first aid, escape routes, and pathways into the home or office building for emergency personnel. Many people perish around the country each year because emergency service providers cannot find a pathway into the home or business to save those trapped inside quickly enough. Keep these things in mind when establishing your security plan for family or associates.
Another thing that is particularly applicable to a business is giving each employee a unique security code to prevent inside jobs or deliberate harm. Many business security issues are found to be inside jobs or someone you know and trust with your business. Many larger companies have adopted key cards to accomplish this though many smaller companies hand out the code to the alarm without considering the possible implications.
There are many methods in which your home or business can be secured from all manner of dangers, disruptions, and ill will. You should have a plan designed to bring them together to achieve the most positive, pro-active, and long lasting results of your efforts.
