The festive season is a peak time for burglaries to take place in homes and commercial buildings. Wilson Security Systems has been protecting homes and businesses in Ireland since 1995. We want you to have peace of mind that your premises is secured which is why we have prepared this blog with some general housekeeping advice that you should follow:
- Security Audit
We highly recommend that you invest in having a security audit annually. The purpose of the inspection is to review your businesses current security set-up and identify gaps or vulnerabilities that may exist in the security system or the physical building, e.g. faulty door locks, missing alarm sensors etc.
- Alarm Service
It’s important to have your alarm serviced twice a year to ensure that all aspects of the system are working correctly. Remember from an insurance perspective, it is essential that your alarm is working correctly.
- Key Holders
It’s very easy to forget who your keyholder is as you’re trying to run your business. However, it is essential to check in on who your keyholders are and ensure they are still in the business or that they have the capacity to turn up to your premises should an alarm be raised.
In addition, if you had a key holder who has recently left the businesses, it is best practice to update the security code on your system.
- Lock-up Procedure
It is not unusual in businesses of today to have some workers stay back later than others to get their work finished. With this culture, the business owners must equip all of their employees with a lock-up procedure that details what they need to do before they close the front door. Examples of what is included in such a document include;
- Switching Lights Off
- Locking All Doors
- Unplugging Certain Equipment
- Turning the Alarm on
Many businesses today are opting to increase their security by installing CCTV cameras to monitor the premises and for granting access to the building.
