A Good Phone System is a Must for Any Business

When I decided to open a shop to sell my hand-made clothing and accessories, I knew I would learn a lot of lessons along the way, since I don't have a business background. One mistake I made when opening my shop was having just a single phone line. I really didn't think I needed an intricate phone system, as I just have a small shop. One day a customer came in my shop and told me she had been trying to call my shop for days, but she never received an answer. She told me the others had been calling too, and the rumor was that I had closed my shop. I learned that my single line was leading to unhappy customers and even rumors that I went out of business! I then invested in a good multi-line phone system and haven't missed a call since. Enjoy my blog!

Beef Up Security On Property That Your Antique Shop Is Located On Before Traveling Abroad

If you own an antique shop and will be traveling abroad this summer and would like to beef up security on the property that you own before leaving for the trip, the following tips will assist with preventing theft and monitoring your business and property while out of town. 

IP Security Camera

Visit a business that sells security devices and view the IP security cameras that are for sale. An Internet Protocol system will operate over a standard IP network and can be programmed to alert you through your cellphone, tablet, computer or any other wireless device that you choose. Cameras are designed to be discreet and can be installed outdoors or indoors.

If you were to keep tabs on people who approach the door to your business or enter the establishment, one camera can be secured over the door and another one can be installed over the interior entryway of your business. Many models are weather resistant and will provide realtime footage. If you are provided with footage that perpetrates a potential robbery or vandalism, contact the police to receive assistance with the matter.

Alarm System And Keypad

An alarm system that is wired to a keypad will be activated if the door to your business is opened. A business that installs alarm systems will secure a keypad next to the interior side of the door that is used to enter your antique shop. You will be provided with a passcode that must be entered into the keypad after entering or before exiting the building.

If someone enters the building and does not know the passcode, a shrill-sounding alarm will sound after a short amount of time. An alarm system can be programmed to notify a central location. When this occurs, a dispatcher will send the authorities to your business to check the property and make sure that nobody is attempting to commit a crime. 

Hired Guard

Interview security guards and hire one to monitor your property and business at various times throughout the day and night. You can request that a security guard drive through the parking lot that is on your property and shine a light around the perimeter of the antique shop or you can ask a guard to walk around the property and next to the building to ensure that nobody is present. A security guard can check the lock that is secured to the door to make sure that it hasn't been tampered with and they will contact you if they find any signs of forced entry.

Do you need help increasing the security of your building? Contact a business like ACC Telecom.
