Beef Up Your Home or Business Security Before the Holidays

It’s hard to believe that the holiday decorations are already filling up the retail store shelves, but, yes, it’s that time of the year again. Increased break-ins and robberies can hamper holiday joy. If you have been thinking about beefing up your home or business security system, now is the time to do so, and Momo Locksmith can help before you pour the first egg nog or steal your first holiday kiss underneath the mistletoe.

Residential Security

Residential security can be as tight or loose as you prefer. How much you secure your home depends on how safe you feel and the crime statistics in your area. Even if you live in a secured building on the Upper East Side, you’ll still want locks on your doors and windows. Home security can include

  • Locks and deadbolts
  • Security door screens
  • Gated property
  • Iron window coverings
  • Security cameras
  • Home intercom systems
  • Electronic or intelligent locks
  • Home alarm systems

Again, what you decide to use for your home depends on your preference, but one thing is certain: Crime statistics suggest that the holidays are a time for increased risk to your home and your belongings. Should you catch a burglar stealing your holiday presents, you might become a statistic, too.

Business Security

Businesses can suffer even more during the holidays. With extended hours and frazzled employees, shoplifting increases exponentially in November and December. You need an Atlantic City-style security system in your store with cameras everywhere so nobody will even think about taking something. 

Employees can be your number one holiday thieves. Frustrated that they haven’t had time to do their own holiday shopping and complaining that they’re underpaid, five-fingered discounts tend to abound during the holiday shopping season, which means you need to keep them in check, as well.

Access control systems are a good way to know when your employees come and go and where they are inside your business. Access control systems also prevent employees from entering stock rooms and other crucial places. Cameras are a good idea, as are exterior iron implements to protect your business.

One way to determine what security you need is to remember the problems you had last holiday season. Was theft an issue? Did the thefts occur in your store or from your stockroom? What about crimes in the parking lot? We can discuss solutions this year to the problems you had last year.
