Simple tips to protect your business from shoplifters

Easy ways to protect your shop

Shoplifting costs UK businesses many millions of pounds each year in lost revenues. Not only is shop lifting expensive it’s demoralising too but by taking a few simple steps, you could improve the security of your shop and reduce the chances of it happening.

Seasoned shoplifters can tell within seconds of walking in how easy it is to steal from a shop. They base their assessment on how quickly they are spoken to be a member of staff and so by greeting everyone who enters yours, you’ll send out the message that you, and your staff, are aware of what’s going on.

It can also be helpful to spend a little time working out where thefts are happening inside your shop. If one area seems to be more prone to theft than others, think about what you could do to improve the situation. For example, is it covered by your CCTV cameras? Can you see the area from the till? It might be worth moving expensive items away from the area, moving shelving or re-positioning staff.

Last and by no means least, by keeping your shop clean and tidy you’ll be sending out the message that everything is in order and that your security is up-to-date. Wide, uncluttered aisles make it harder for shoplifters to operate unnoticed, whilst a clean and tidy shop exterior will also help.

Protect your business from crime this Christmas

Security solutions for businesses in Yorkshire

In last week’s post we covered the importance of ensuring your home is protected from the risk of theft during the run up to Christmas. This week we’re going to focus upon how important pre-Christmas security is for shop owners and those who run retail businesses.

Business security is, of course, essential throughout the year but in the busy run up to Christmas when your business is carrying extra stock, ensuring you have sufficient systems in place is vital.

Here at FirstEye we work with businesses throughout Leeds and West Yorkshire, designing and installing a wide range of security systems, with options to suit shops and business premises of all sizes. We’ll work with you to find a system which not only gives your business the protection it needs, but is also in line with your budget. Here are a few examples of the security systems we offer:

Security alarms: a reliable security alarm is an essential piece of kit for all businesses and will provide you with reassurance that your shop, warehouse or storage unit is fully protected. From state-of-the-art systems designed to be linked to fire alarms and CCTV, through to basic bell only alarms, we’ll install a system which meets your requirements.
Access control: providing a relatively simple yet highly effective way to protect stock rooms or back offices, access control will help you control and monitor who has access to particular areas. Designed to be operated either by a pin code, key fob or swipe card, installing access control also puts an end to the expense and hassle of replacing lost keys.
CCTV: CCTV is increasingly popular with shop and retail business owners as it offers peace of mind. Suitable for covering the exterior or interior of your premises, installing CCTV will enable you to check what’s going on when you’re not there whilst providing you with valuable video evidence if the worst happens. From one camera to multiple units, we’ll install a system which protects your premises.

Are you moving house?

Home security solutions installed by FirstEye

If you’re thinking about moving house and are busy looking around potential properties, it’s important to put security at the top of your list. It’s easy to get distracted and moving house is a very busy time, but by taking security into consideration now, you could save yourself a great deal of heartache.

There are plenty of simple things you can do to help you decide whether a potential property is safe and secure, including:

  • Try asking people living nearby for their thoughts on what it’s like to live there – local knowledge can be incredibly useful!
  • What’s the area like at night? An area can feel very different when it’s dark and if you feel uncomfortable, it might be a good idea to look elsewhere.
  • Is the property fitted with a security system and if it is, how old/reliable is the system?
  • Is there security lighting?
  • On moving day, it’s a good idea to change the locks and keys. It’s impossible to know who has keys and for peace of mind it’s well worth the expense.
  • If the property has a burglar alarm, make the sure you get the code and manual from the previous owners. Alarm maintenance is important and if the system hasn’t been serviced for a while, arrange for a service appointment as soon as possible.
  • If there isn’t an alarm system, arrange to have one installed as soon possible. Unfortunately we meet lots of homeowners who want to have an alarm installed because they’ve just been burgled but prevention is much better than cure.
  • Organise your home insurance as soon as possible and make sure you have the correct level of cover.
  • Check garages, sheds and outbuildings – if you’re going to store valuables (bikes, sports equipment, power tools etc.), consider having an alarm installed.
  • Security lighting is a cost-effective, quick-fix approach to home security. Consider installing outside lights if there aren’t any.

Which access control system do you need?

Following on from last week’s post on the benefits an access control system could offer your business, in this post we’re going to outline the two types of system we install.

Standalone network control systems

Standalone network control systems are easy to operate and are ideal for controlling either a single door or several doors in a series. This makes them perfect for smaller offices, apartments, storage units and shops etc. Access through each door is provided either by a keypad code number, swipe card, fob or token presented to a door reader. Cost-effective and a great way to enhance the security of your business premises, installing a standalone network control system will provide you with peace of mind and protection against theft.

Networked access control systems

These systems are controlled by a network or PC based system and offer the capability to have complete control from one central computer or by logging onto networked access control software. This type of system is perfect for businesses who need to provide multiple users with individual control, or have multiple buildings such as business complexes, industrial buildings, universities and colleges.

Installing a networked access control system means that users are able to control all access points from a control system from anywhere in the building, creating different user access pathways, whilst also issuing or barring access cards, tokens or fobs as required. In addition, networked systems also include a reporting facility which provides a useful way to monitor who has passed through each access controlled door and when.
