To keep on top of your security, it is important that you complete regular audits of the procedures you have in place. Our recommended audit this month, leading up to Christmas, is to make sure your Watchdog held keys are up-to-date.
Firstly, do we hold keys to your premises? Think about your security needs and the action you would like us to take when our guards check on an alarm activation. If we hold keys we can complete a thorough internal check, otherwise we can only complete an external check of all accessible windows and doors.
Including the internal check is a thorough security measure that gives you value for money. Saying this, it is up to you to think about what your security needs are. Do you need both checks completed or are you just happy with an external check?
Are our keys up-to-date? You may have added a gate, changed a lock or two without thinking of us. This could significantly hinder our process when responding to alarm activations.
If you would like to see if we hold keys, give our monitoring station a call to find out. Our operators will be more than happy to help you out.
