Ways to Keep Commercial Buildings Secure During the Holidays
With the holiday season in full swing, everyone has a ton on their mind. From vacations, to dinners, to office parties, to gift buying, there’s no shortage of things to worry about this time of year. But have you taken the time to think about all of the hours your commercial building will be sitting unoccupied during the holiday season?
While all the employees in your building enjoy their time spent with friends and family, there are criminals out there who target commercial spaces for burglaries. Many office buildings are well-equipped with expensive IT equipment (i.e. laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, televisions, etc.) and furniture, making them prime spots for thieves to hit during the holiday season when many have their guard down.
But to help you stay prepared, the best commercial locksmith Philadelphia has to offer is here to give tips on securing your commercial building this holiday season.
Cameras: Having a camera system installed in your commercial building can drastically cut back on crime. The mere presence of a camera could be enough to deter criminals from entering your property. However, it is a bit of a Catch-22. If you keep the cameras visible, they could be vandalized or disable by burglars. If you hide them, you won’t be scaring burglars away but you will have footage of the actual crime.
High-Security Locks/Alarm: South Philadelphia Locksmith can install high-security systems in commercial buildings. Opting for digital control keypad locks or digital control card locks can go a long way in keeping your commercial building secure. Having an alarm that alerts you and/or the authorities of a burglary is also a very useful tool to have when protecting your place of business.
Lock Repair: Before heading out for the holidays, perform a building inspection to make sure there are no broken locks on doors and windows that lead into your commercial building. If there are any broken locks, be sure to call South Philadelphia Locksmith so we can provide our commercial lock repair services.
Safe Repair: Many commercial buildings have safes on the property that contain important information or valuable items. If your building has a safe that is not functioning properly, South Philadelphia Locksmith’s commercial safe repair can help with that.
