The current state of business security during quarantine

The effects of quarantine have allowed one “enterprise” to thrive more than most others, and that’s crime. According to an article out by ABC News, Durham, NC police departments saw a 40% spike in commercial burglaries

One local business owner in Nashville, TN, Todd Rossbach, spoke with a local news station about a series of break-ins across businesses in his area. “I believe that the issue is businesses are shut down or working at limited capacity. Giving them [burglars] ample opportunity to break into buildings,” he said “Less traffic on the streets so the less they have to get caught.”

How to protect your property while quarantine is in effect

With crime on the rise, businesses need to have their properties surveilled and protected at all times. That’s where a good security system comes into play.

Some of the most cost-effective solutions for business owners looking to protect their properties during Covid-19 lockdowns include:

 

Installing one or two additional security cameras: 

Many criminals will case a building before breaking into it. The faster you identify that suspicious activity, the faster you can react, either by requesting drive-bys from nearby on duty police officers, or installing additional security such as security screens for windows. 

 

Securing doors and windows with smarter alarms: 

Today’s alarm systems rely on intelligent sensors that reduce false alarms. In addition, these systems are predominantly cellular, making it much more difficult for burglars to disable them. 

 

Having the property professionally monitored: 

Combining your existing cameras and alarm sensors with a professional monitoring solution ensures that when a real break-in occurs, the authorities are alerted to it within seconds. Those precious seconds limit how much damage a criminal can do before police arrive.
