Is Your Property or Business Protected?

When it comes to protecting your home or workplace its a proven fact that security camera signs provide that extra measure of protection to be a visual and effective way to deter burglars or vandals from your property. 

A lack of security measures around your property is one of the first thing burglars check for when selecting a target.

When it comes to deciding what type of security measures you want to take, the first step is assessing your property type and risk of loss. If you are protecting a private property, even a vague sign referencing a security system is usually enough to deter break-ins and burglaries. After all, thieves are looking to get in and out as quickly as possible. 

Some simple ways to use signage to protect your property include:

  • Having yard signs indicating surveillance can be a loud and effective way to deter an impulsive burglar.

  • Strategically placing signs near back entrances and easy-access windows help improve overall safety.

  • Alarm stickers are similarly great for placing on windows and doors, which are usually easy targets.

  • A thief will check for unlocked doors and windows first, trying to avoid breaking glass or making too much noise.

  • Seeing a sticker that indicates an alarm will sound off once opened instils fear and is likely to send the bad guys away.

  • Even a “beware of dog” sign has proven to deter potential threats, regardless of whether a dog is actually present.
