Business Security Specialists in New Jersey
While many homeowners understand the importance of having a home security system, it's just as important to protect a business with a security system. Many of the top security system companies now offer business based systems. A business based security system is the best way to protect against a variety of threats and helps the business owner stay on top of all of the ins and outs that are so crucial to a successful business. Whether it be data, inventory, computer systems or many other valuable items – protecting your assets will give you the peace of mind and the ability to sleep well knowing that your business is secure.
Do You Have Ample Outside Lighting?
Security lighting keeps you, your employees and customers safe and secure, while leaving you with peace of mind when you cannot be there. Whether you choose to go with a simple light to illuminate a dark area on your property or a complex system that surrounds the perimeters, security lighting keeps accidents to a minimum all while deterring crime and improving the appearance and value of your business.
Picking a System
Security lighting comes in a variety of designs, are energy efficient and are reliable. There are many options including timers that will automatically turn your lights on, sensors which will activate when any motion is detected or lighting that illuminates from dusk till dawn.
Business security lighting includes but is not limited to:
Burglars fear lights. Their goal is to remain hidden and when a bright light suddenly appears on your property, their usual response is to run to remain undetected – hopefully without any of your things. You would be surprised how much difference the installation of one light could give your property. You can choose an outdoor motion light which is sure to surprisingly brighten any burglar's face or go with something more technological such as floodlights which fire up to 60 watts of light onto your property. They are energy-efficient, running off solar power, and can protect for up to 8 hours straight.
Cameras Deter Crime
Research has proven that the visibility of cameras alone reduces crime. It demonstrates that your property is being protected. When scouting out an area to vandalize, burglars will often be deterred by the sight of a camera and continue on to the next place. Offices equipped with security systems are 40 times less likely to be victims of breaking and entering. It is also important for businesses to place security cameras in the areas of your business where there is high traffic. The presence of the security cameras lets everyone know that the building is protected. Thieves are much less likely to commit crimes if they feel like they are being watched.
Security cameras can also be used to monitor your employees. Strategically placed cameras inside of your business will encourage employees to be productive while also reducing theft and vandalism. A monitored camera system can effectively watch your entire business from one central location. You can eliminate the need for security guards as these cameras monitor every person that comes and leaves. This saves you money and provides you protection.
Business Security Electrical Services We Provide Including but are not Limited To:
Having security cameras installed in your business will also lower your insurance premium. Most insurance companies offer discounts for clients who have video security systems. You could save up to 20% in insurance costs by installing a security camera. The savings will help cover the cost of the system and combined with the savings you will have from all the deterred theft, the system will more than pay for itself. Save money and avoid the hassle of increased costs of dealing with theft and vandalism by installing your system today.
Exit signs are another energy-efficient way to increase the safety of your business. Replacing incandescent exit signs with exit signs that run off light emitting diode (LED) technology can increase the efficiency by up to 8 times. These signs offer a reliable means of keeping exit routes from your business safe and illuminated.
Having smoke detectors installed on every level of your business is essential to your safety. Battery operated smoke detectors are a decade old technology and need to be updated. Local ordinances require businesses to have hard wired smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. At Light It Up Electric, we have professional electricians who will assess your needs.
- What You Can Do To Prevent a Fire:
- Have an Electrical Inspection. There is nothing better than having a professional electrician check out your system and ensure that everything is safe.
- Use GFCI receptacles. GFCI's are specifically designed to detect any leakage in electricity and will shut down power to your receptacle to ensure your safety.
- Do a visual inspection. Take the time to walk around your business and check that all electrical outlets and light switches are free of broken parts and cracks. If so have them replaced or repaired immediately. It is also important to be sure to check for outlets and switches that may be hot to the touch as this also likely represents an electrical problem.
- Check your power cords. Check all of your extension cords and power cords for signs of wear and fraying and immediately replace.
- Are your outlets overloaded? Check that your outlets are not overloaded with too many power cords. The typical outlet is rated to carry 15-20 amps of power. Overloading outlets can present both shock and fire hazards.
