It may be a challenging and scary moment for small company owners in Australia, with many enterprises still impacted by the current lockdowns in place throughout numerous regions. Not only is it unclear when companies will be permitted to reopen, but even after restrictions are lifted, there is likely to be continued concern about future lockdowns. Get more article about the ADT security system for business.
Aside from the loss of livelihood, there is also the issue of security. Vacant business premises are an obvious target for crime as more individuals work from home, reducing the possibilities for residential break-ins.
Having a security system monitored from a central location, and remote surveillance capabilities may provide confidence and peace of mind. With one less thing to worry about, company owners can check in on their property at any time to ensure it is safe and secure while they are away.
ADT Security’s CCTV and 24/7 monitoring solutions are customized to meet the demands of each organization. Internal and outdoor video cameras and network video devices (NVR) are examples of solutions, with all ADT Security systems providing 24/7 monitoring and interactive capabilities through an ADT app that sends an automated alert whenever motion is detected on the premises.
With companies covered 24 hours a day, seven days a week, owners can rest confident that if an event occurs, such as a break-in attempt, ADT Security’s response team will be ready to act and alert you right away. If necessary, an ADT patrol service may be sent to the location to conduct an investigation.
If your company has been forced to lockdown mode, follow these security steps to keep your premises secure.
Verify that all doors and windows are securely secured
Check all access and exit points, including windows, doors, and surrounding gates, have been secured now that companies have closed and no one is present to lock them up. If valuable goods are visible from a window, it is also a good idea to shut the blinds to discourage prying eyes from recognizing them.
Assess your assets and bring all valuables home
Make a list of possessions and grab any high-value objects you can travel home with you. It’s also advisable to check with your employees if they have left anything valuable behind so you can organize to secure it or arrange a contactless delivery. It’s also a good idea to double-check that your company insurance coverage is up to date. If you’re a retailer, keeping an empty till open sends the message that you don’t have any cash on hand.
If you lose your keys, you should change your locks
Consider replacing the locks to secure the premises against unauthorized entrance if any keys have been lost or not returned by prior workers throughout the years. Also, make sure that any extra keys aren’t left on the premises or in cars.
While we can feel a little powerless during a lockdown, being able to view your business in real-time via the ADT app can help us feel a little more in control. The ADT app not only lets you peek into your company from anywhere but also lets you record video footage and preserve clips, which may be necessary for incident verification and insurance reasons.
