Would you feel comfortable running your business without a working alarm system? Regardless of what time of the year that question is asked, the answer should always be, "No!"
The holiday season makes it even more important to have optimal physical and electronic security in place to keep your business protected. It's no secret that jewelers hold more inventory during this time of the year, so criminals have even more reason to increase their activity.
Physical and electronic security features can represent a major investment for jewelry store security.
Many of these features, such as safes and alarms, are absolutely essential to have if you're doing business in the jewelry industry, though. So, why wouldn't you maximize the return on your investment and get what will offer you the highest level of security?
As technology impacts everyone's lives to make things easier and more efficient, some applications of exciting new tech lag behind the market.
That's often the case for small to mid-sized businesses, especially when it comes to security.
As new technology is developed and deployed where demand is greatest, older (but still useful) technology can begin trickling down. As this trickle down takes place, it can have a huge impact on jewelry store security.
Once you’ve installed security cameras, don’t assume their presence will be enough to scare away criminals. Make a plan to ensure you have the camera footage securely stored in case you need to review it yourself or share it with law enforcement.
