Restaurant SecurityThe hospitality industry is a fast-paced business, where products and services are always changing, and like the retail industry, after hours’ crime is always a big threat.

From fast-food restaurants, to a neighbourhood bar/eatery, or a white cloth, a la carte restaurant, owning and operating a restaurant is not easy.

With thin industry margins, and seasonal business ups and downs, preventing damage, theft and loss can make a big difference to your bottom line. mentioned in a recent article that an estimated 4% of restaurant sales has to be written off as a loss, that amount can have a big impact. Your restaurant is something you've put a lot of hard work into, therefore you'll want to protect it.

It’s bad enough to think that your employees could be stealing from you, but it's also important to secure your restaurant from external threats, theft, professional burglars, and vandals, so you'll want to do everything in your power to prevent any illegal entry into you premises, damage to your property, shrinking stock, or disappearing inventory and cash. Just one professional burglary incident, that clears out your valuable stock of food and alcohol, along with some mindless internal vandalism could ruin your business.

The best way to prevent loss, theft, and vandalism to your restaurant, is to ensure a reliable security system is set in place.

However, we don’t recommend you go out and buy an off-the-shelf CCTV camera system from a big box store - they are simply not going to do the job to protect your property.

Neither do we recommend you get an installed conventional alarm system. Not only will it not give you the 100% coverage you need, but it will also have a very high false alarm rate, as the alarms cannot be 'verified'.

We recommend a security solution that is proven as the best in restaurant industry, offering you a very high level of business security that also has all the benefits of being able to 'verify' a theft, or an intrusion of your property while the break-in happens.

Our approach to protecting your business starts with a full security audit, which we do from the perspective of a potential burglar, we identify all of your business’ weaknesses, and then we create a customized security plan that will best fit your restaurant. The security solutions we offer are efficient, and they're created to fully protect the interior and exterior of your restaurant, from internal theft and external intrusions.

The best thing about our security system is that it's 'Verified'. This means that any alarms or alerts can be immediately viewed and listened to at our 24/7 monitoring station. This allows our professional monitoring staff to 'verify' the alarm in person, and then alert the Police immediately should there be a potential crime in progress.

This immediate response is the fastest in the security industry and allows the Police to arrive at the scene of the crime within minutes. Sonitrol’s alarm systems have an industry leading average Police response time of 3.5 minutes, that's barely enough time for a thief to enter your restaurant if it’s after hours.

We recommend Sonitrol’s integrated verified security system that is able to grow and work together. An integrated system will work more effectively and efficiently than a stand alone CCTV, intrusion and access systems which all work separately from each other.

So don't take a chance with any alarm system, get peace of mind with a Sonitrol 'Verified' security system.
