All types of businesses can benefit from the installation of a business alarm system regardless of their size. Risk of theft or inventory loss is immediately reduced as these systems keep information and assets safe. Not to mention these alarm systems keep employees and customers safe during business hours by providing real time monitoring.
It is during a business operating hours that it is most vulnerable to theft as cash and valuables are easily accessible. Most importantly the mere presence of an alarm system in a business establishment deters would be burglars from attempting any kind of theft.
The following are some scenarios where alarm users have reported the assistance of a business alarm system in protecting their establishment:
Retail Store: During closed hours at around 1 am at night two males broke the glass of the store and proceeded to enter. The two males loaded several bags with high end merchandise totaling around $4,000. However, in breaking the store glass, the two men triggered an audible alarm that notified authorities. Within 5 minutes police arrived and arrested the two individuals before they were able to flee.
Restaurant: This restaurant suffered a similar break in after hours. One man successfully opened the store cash register and fled the scene. The business alarm system installed in the restaurant notified police of the break in. Thanks to camera monitoring installed by Protection Alarms, the man’s vehicle was identified and located by authorities approximately 20 minutes later. Around $2,500 was recovered.

Studies have shown that aside from location, the obvious presence of cameras and alarm systems significantly affect an individual’s perception of a business. Furthermore, shoplifters admit that visible monitoring and alarm systems reduce their likelihood to steal.
