Holiday Security Tips aren't just for homeowners.  Make sure you follow these security tips to keep your business running smoothly during the holidays so you can relax.

Holiday Security Tips for your Business

Holiday Security Tips aren’t just for homeowners. Make sure you follow these holiday security tips to keep your business running smoothly during the holidays.

  1. Update us with your special holiday hours. If you use our supervised open and close service, we’re letting you know if employees are coming and going outside the open and close times you specify. Let us know if your hours have changed during the holidays so we won’t send you needless alerts. If you use our Commercial Alarm.com service, you can update these times yourself by logging in to your account
  2. Make sure your call list is current. If the alarm sounds, make sure the correct people are contacted. Call our office to review who is on your call list today 410-546-2210 or update them using our call list update form.
  3. Doublecheck your video system. If your have a video monitoring system, make sure that it is working properly before you close up for the holidays. If you don’t have a video monitoring system at the office today, give us a call for complete our form below for a free consultation.
  4. Reduce false alarms. Many businesses decorate to celebrate the holiday. Make sure that your decorations aren’t blocking your video cameras. If you have motion detectors, make sure no decorations are moving or could be moved when the heat comes on.
  5. Be on your guard. Seasonal employees are a must for many businesses during the holidays. An access control system can make sure only certain employees can access special areas. Access control also means it’s easy to give seasonal employees access to the building and terminate that access when the holiday rush is over.
  6. Test your system. We always recommend testing your system on a regular basis, including your panic buttons. Be sure to call us at 410-546-2210 before you begin testing your system so we don’t alert the authorities!
