The New Year is here, and with it comes a golden opportunity to improve your life in 2018 by enhancing the security at your business or home. To help you, we've compiled a few security resolutions that you’ll be able to keep past the first week of January.
Security Resolution #1: Create good habits. Whether it’s locking doors, setting the security system or changing batteries in the fire alarm, the effectiveness of business and home security ultimately lies in the hands of the user. Get into the habit of setting the security system every time you leave the premises, even if it’s just a quick trip to the store. Be diligent about replacing the batteries in your fire or smoke alarms twice a year. No matter if you are present or away, always keep your doors and windows locked. These proactive habits will help you create a safer environment for your customers, family and your property. Security Resolution #2: Consider adding extras that enhance security. In addition to creating good security habits, you should also consider beefing up your current security measures. Deny burglars access to your property by installing deadbolt locks or an access control system. To help detect danger, implement life-saving extras such as system monitoring, surveillance cameras and carbon monoxide detectors. These additional features come at a small price when compared to the emotional and physical cost of a burglary or fire. Security Resolution #3: Update your security system. Commit to the security of your property by installing new technology such as interactive services and business/home automation. Automation uses integrated technology to connect the functions of a business or home with the user. This allows users to control the system remotely from a smart phone or tablet. A few features of automation include locking and unlocking doors; arming the security system; turning lights off and on; and adjusting the thermostat – all from a web-enabled device. These features not only bring added security to your property, but also convenience, efficiency and control. Whether you decide to increase your security by creating good habits, enhancing your current security system or installing an interactive system, security is an easy resolution you can keep this year and for years to come.
