Do you have a strong business protection plan?

Sponsored Content provided by Luke Wheeler - Vice President, Holmes Security Systems

Understandably, today's business owners and leaders are busier than ever as they wear multiple hats and juggle competing priorities. 

One thing that is always at the forefront of a business leader's mind is protecting their business, customers, and employees. Therefore, a strong plan will always include the following:

  • Training on safety protocols.
  • Enforcing safety guidelines.
  • Safety measures in the workplace, such as security systems.
  • Ensuring customers' data is secure by implementing data encryption, using strong passwords, and monitoring suspicious activity. 
  • Insurance coverage to protect the business and employees should an accident or injury occur.

A feature many SMBs enjoy about today's security systems is easily monitoring business opening/closing with text alerts and images of who is arming and disarming the security system. You no longer have to wonder if the shift opener was there to open on time; you will know whether you are in a business meeting across town or taking a much-needed family vacation. 

When you consider the right security system for your business, you will see that you can customize a solution to fit your unique business needs. Although you can start with a simple system, you may prefer a highly sophisticated system that includes access control, motion sensors, panic buttons, and CCTV. Your first step should be to find a reputable professional to install and maintain your system so that you can focus on running your business.

A burglary or any other type of unauthorized entry can cost a business dearly. Not only can it cause financial loss, but it can also create a considerable risk of bodily harm if the perpetrator is violent. Should the expected happen, you want the proper authorities deployed immediately. Holmes Security is the only company in Eastern NC with a 24/7/365 LOCAL UL-listed 5-diamond central monitoring station. If something goes wrong, someone in your community quickly takes action to notify you and the appropriate authorities for immediate assistance. 

Holmes has been your neighbor since 1908; if you are considering a new security system or upgrades to your current system, please visit
