Businesses and any commercial establishments are prone to be victimized by burglars or robbers, especially those with lax security system and those located in less populated areas.
According to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, robbery is a violent crime that results to hundreds of dollars in losses to the establishment.
Based on a data from the UCR, an estimated 1,165,383 violent crimes occurred in the United States in 2014. Of this number, 325,802 or 28% are robberies that occurred in commercial houses (supermarkets, department stores, restaurants), convenience stores, gas and service stations, and banks. Basing from the supplemental reports of law enforcement agencies, the average loss of businesses per robbery was $1,227. The average dollar losses were highest for banks with $3,816 per offense followed by commercial houses with $1,872, gas and service stations with $1,206 average loss per offense, and $699 for convenience stores. According to the US Department of Justice, robberies accounted for losses estimated at nearly $539 million in 2006.
Robbery is often a big-city crime and mainly occurs during night time up until dawn, often increases during winter due to the extended period of darkness. A separate data for burglary showed that in 2014, an estimated 1,729,806 break-ins occurred with 542.5 incidents per 100,000 inhabitants. Of the number, 85.6% occurred in metropolitan areas and 56.3% involved forcible entry, 35.2% were unlawful entries and 6.5% comprised forcible entry attempts. The bad thing is that, all suspects in both robbery and burglary incidents in 2014 were not arrested. Only 29.7 robbery suspects and 74.9 burglary suspects per 100,000 inhabitants were arrested. The low arrest rate is mainly attributed to the often inadequate witness identification since, in the majority of these cases, the victims and the suspects are complete strangers.
Though banks and commercial establishments now install video cameras that can help in identifying the suspects, the picture quality is often the most common problem that prevents authorities from making arrests.
Robberies and burglaries happen anywhere. And you wouldn’t know, your establishment could be the next target so you have to do something to prevent this from happening. Assess your security system. Do you have even the basic security cameras in your office? Have you installed the correct and the safest locks to the entrance and exit doors of your establishment? Are your office cabinets secured enough to thwart any possible break-ins? It is very important to assess the overall security system of your establishment to prevent you from being victimized by the bad guys. But if you are not sure about this, you might need the help of a locksmith who can do the assessment and possibly install all the needed locks and latches to make sure your business is safe from burglars or robbers.
Or if your office cabinet is tightly secured but you misplaced or accidentally lost the key which prevents you from retrieving a very important document, you also need a locksmith to help you open the cabinet.

This type of locks works through a proper code which, when entered into the keypad, releases a small current that causes the lock bolt to disengage. Then the lock will open. This lock will certainly prevent burglars from breaking in since for sure, they can’t figure out the code. Most keypads sold today use touch screen panels instead of buttons. And they can either be digital or mechanical, some with a hold back option which is ideal for businesses that require the door to be left unlocked for a particular period of time. A keypad lock is one of the best solutions to lost, stolen and forgotten keys. With this type of lock, going inside your office will be keyless and effortless, as long as you remember the correct code.
Keypad locks are easy to install and come in a variety of electronic finishes and styles. You can go for keypad deadbolt, keypad deadbolt with knob or lever for a stylish look, keypad deadbolt with handleset which is perfect for exterior entrance doors, connected keypad deadbolt that can hold up to 30 user codes, connected keypad deadbolt with knob or lever, connected keypad with handleset, keypad lock with auto-lock or keypad lock with flex-lock.
Keypad deadbolts are designed for exterior doors and can hold up to 19 user codes. You can choose those with touchscreen and alarm or keyless touchscreen lever. Keypad lock with auto-lock is best for interior and exterior doors. This type of lock automatically re-locks after 5 seconds. Keypad lock with flex-lock lets you switch between unlocked or automatic re-locking. But whatever you choose, you are assured that this type of lock can tightly secure your office doors, giving burglars and robbers a hard time getting in.
KEY CARD LOCKS
This new and innovative, modern technology lock is operated using a flat, rectangular plastic card, which is commonly referred to as a key card. The key card, which is a good alternative to mechanical keys, stores a digital code which, when inserted into the lock, causes the door to disengage the lock upon acceptance of the code. This type of lock, which is commonly used in hotels, rids you of the hassle of keeping or losing your keys. It also effectively prevents key duplication or breakage, keeping out burglars or any other possible threats to the safety of your premises.
Among the most commonly used types of keycards are magnetic stripe, barcode, mechanical holecard, wire embedded cards, smart card and RFID (radio frequency identification) proximity cards.
Magnetic stripe key card locks work by running the magnetic stripe over a sensor, which reads the stripe’s contents. Smart cards are embedded with a read/write electronic microchip and offer an enhanced level of security.
Security should be your top-most concern if you want your business to run smoothly. By choosing the most secure locks, you are assured that burglars and robbers can’t barge into your establishment and take away your cash, equipment and other office valuables.
Installing the most secure lock is not easy since you have to do some research as to the best type to use that would fit your kind of business.
