Be in control, of EVERYTHING!

Many of us have the bad memory of leaving the door unlocked, or leaving our bedroom lights on when we leave the room or home. But, we didn’t have a way of going back and doing so. Now we do! The face of the future. How cool is it to control the lights, cameras security systems, doorbells, and even the thermostats for your home, from virtually any and everywhere. Be in control. With simple commands like, “Alexa, Good night!” and program it to do things such as; dimming or turning off lights in a certain room or setting your alarms before bed. Who knew technology would be so much fun.

Safety

When you think about safety, you think of cameras and alarm systems. Arming in before leaving and after returning. Leaving on or turning off lights in the home. Things we have all learned to worry about when thinking of safety. Now that technology is at it’s best, it’s now easier to just about anything. From seeing who’s at your front door, to what your pet cat is doing at home while you’re gone at work, your home cameras give you access to see everything. However, they, unfortunately, don’t work with your lights and locks in the home. Alexa, Siri, and Google do though and they are rock stars at it. Say “Alexa”, “Hey Siri” or “OK Google” and tell them what to do. Virtual voice-controlled assistants (Alexa, Siri, and Google) make it easy to control smart home products by speaking simple commands. Each of these have their strengths and weaknesses, so make sure that you choose whoever works for your needs.

Keep reading, lets find out together.

Truth Behind The Turkey

The first ever Thanksgiving Dinner was in 1621. The Pilgrims sailed to the North American edge of wilderness all the way from England. After establishing themselves, months after arriving to the USA, they came together to have what we now call “Thanksgiving”. Celebrating with a harvest with the tribe that help make everything happen. Local fish, corn and squash. What did they do? you may ask. The tribes of Squanto and friendly Wampanoag protected them from the other tribes, that were a bit hostile or territorial. They are the band of colonists that succeeded in establishing the foothold of the North American wild. More than 200 years later, President Abraham Lincoln decared that the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving. It became an official holiday in 1941.

Eating isn’t the only thing to do on Thanksgiving day, there is also the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Annual Parade. Takes place in New York, NY and displays all of the local businesses floats. Overall, the parade brings the celebration of the day to life. Today, over 3 million people attend this beautiful parade, and another 44 million watch on television.

Be Thankful!! Today and always.

What are you thankful for this year? Family, a new relationship? Just life? This shouldn’t be the only time to be thankful in your life, but its definitely one that does great together. It’s in the name, THANKS-giving. It is the time to give thanks for everything you have. There are many people on the streets begging to get a few dollars just to feed themselves. There are a lot of people who aren’t grateful for what they have. Be thankful EVERYDAY. Not just on Thanksgiving. The holiday has turned out to be one of fun and family. Something to be thankful for itself because you’re rejoicing and coming together with family and friends to eat great food and enjoy each others company. Here’s an idea for a new tradition this year, take a decorative pumpkin and place it on the main table. While praying for the food or before partaking in the feast, one family member grabs the pumpkin and says what they’re thankful for. Pass the pumpkin around and see what everyone else is thankful for this year. Who knows, someone might be thankful for you.

Halloween’s Safety “Trick and Treat”

Tips and Tricks before going Trick-or-Treating

There are so many things that kids look forward to on Halloween every year. Dressing up like their favorite princess, or superhero. Spooky stories, pumpkin patches and cinnamon smelling brooms. Who else loves those huh? Well, all together make up one of the most anticipated nights of the year. As adults, we look forward to seeing our children dress up and get into character as they prepare for the biggest costume parade ever (so they think). Around this time of year, families gather at tables with all the children, and do arts & crafts. Here are some tips and tricks for this years spooky festivities.

1. Carve and Enjoy

Pumpkin carvings, who else loves those? The only time of the year that parents don’t fight with the children about playing around with their food, while creating your own work of art on their pumpkins. Placing them on porches all over the world, on display for everyone to see. Although it may seem fun, it can also be very dangerous. Leave the carving to the adults, and children are in charge of decorations. Markers, glitter, paint and some glue. They’re many different tools that have made it “safe” for children to use, but anything can happen when having fun. After the pumpkin is all carved and ready to go, there is just one more step, the CANDLE. For better control, I suggest to buy a battery operated flameless candle. It gives off the image of an original burning candle, with less the risk. But, if you want to go original and place a candle inside of your jack-o-lantern, use candles with care. BE sure to place it on a sturdy surface away from curtains and other flammable objects.

2. Be creative and DIY your costumes

Picking out what you’re going to be for Halloween, is mission #1 when the holidays roll around. Will the kids be princes’/princesses or superheroes’? What will I be? The question always comes up. Why not make it a little more interesting this year and create your own version of a store bought costume. The brighter, the better. It’s important that you keep in mind that trick-or-treating is normally held at night, where it is very important to stand out. Reflectors, or bright and light colors are always a good way to be seen. If you’re going out after dark, another good thing to use is reflective tape. The whole family will be seen, and safe. In case of a sudden chill outside, assure that your costume is a big lose to be able to wear clothes underneath your costume. Shopping for the correct size is important. The last thing you need on Halloween is a trick-and-trip over your shoes that resemble those of a clown. Avoid wearing face masks, or anything that can obstruct you or your child’s vision. Switch to makeup, it works miracles. Right ladies? Also, limit your accessories. Don’t go trick-or-treating with pointy objects, trade them out for flashlights or glow sticks. Pointy objects can be highly dangerous for you and also for the pedestrians around you.

3. Set rules. Trick-or-Treat with extreme care

It’s important to set ground rules on Halloween, in case the children are separated or lost. Trick-or-treaters under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Children have a habit of running off when they see their favorite superhero or character out on Halloween, and we know a way you can use in case you’re separated. If your child will be trick-or-treating without you, plan and discuss a familiar route and set a curfew. Review safety rules, including staying with a group of friends, walking only on the sidewalk, approaching only clearly lit homes, and never going inside a home for a treat. This is a perfect time to use those cell phones and stay in contact always. Have a family meal before heading out. Inspecting the treats before allowing your child to dive in can be very helpful. There are people out there that will try to hurt children and/or adults. 

4. Throw a party!!

If you’re like me, then you’re an over an obsessive parent with your children which isn’t entirely a bad thing. Consider throwing a Halloween party at your home. Decorate around the home, garages, and patios that you have around your home. Invite friends and family. Indulge in good food and some good tricks and treats. Plan to play games and compete for prizes. Another option is to go to your local church and other advertised places that host Halloween events at an earlier time and provide another safe alternative to celebrate. Whatever you and your family decide to do, make sure it is in everyone’s best interest and that everyone is safe.

5. Drive Safe

If you’re going to be commuting via vehicle, please remember that children are running around that night more then any other. Be very vigilant. Watch out for children on bikes or on foot running in between cars. Be careful driving around communities and places that have alleyways or driveways. Your extra set of eyes and ears this Halloween can ensure the safety of everyone, including your family.

From everyone here at Elite Security, we want to wish you a safe & “sweet” Halloween.

5 Steps to Keep Your Business Safe from Burglary

Burglar alarm monitoring Pinecrest, FL

Whether your business is small or whether it’s little, nothing can prepare you or get you ready for what comes with a burglary to your business. The economic hit that you take is always unexpected.

When you hear of security systems, people always assume that it is only for homes. NO! Your business needs protection as well. Statistics show that you’re more likely to be robbed at your place of business before you are robbed at your home. Isn’t that insane?

The following 5 steps are some steps that we, Elite, have come to realize help with keeping a business from staying safe of a burglar.

Step 1: Light up your business like it’s a Christmas tree

Keeping the lights on at your business can mean the difference between life or death sometimes. But they definitely will have the intruders thinking if there’s someone there. Installing motion sensors at each key point entrance is good too. They allow you to know when you have unexpected activity going on. Like in homes, we also suggest that you keep any landscaping outside of your business low and clear. Burglars can use things like bushes and trees to hide behind to use as covers while intruding.

When you’re in the spotlight, you’re bound to stand out. Lighting on the outside also can make it easier for others to see what’s going on at your establishment as well.

Step 2: Arm yourself. Stay protected!

Obtaining an Alarm, and/or Security System is very helpful. Having a security company come out and evaluate your business, to customize a security plan that best works for you and your company. Installing motion sensors, for that unexpected movement. Or, cameras, to monitor what goes on when you’re absent from the location. Always consider a company that works in your best interest, and also monitors 24/7. They will have a response team in the case of an emergency, at your door within minutes of alarms or panic button going off.

These safety measures are effective if done correctly. In the event that someone were to burglarize your property, always remember to keep your valuables in a fire safe. Any and all important documentation, such as (i.e: financial records, bank information for the business and important passwords/codes)  should always remain protected.   Make sure that your safe meets the specifications of your insurance company, we all know how much of a pain it can be when you’re not up to code. So take it seriously, and speak to a professional.

Step 3: Be vigilant, with everyone and anyone

Have you ever heard to always look in your yard before you look into the yard of others? Well, that reflects on your business as well. The danger is not always outside of the door, it also comes from those sitting beside you. Surprised? or not yet. Let’s hope you’re not surprised with anything of this matter, but you can never put it past anyone. When hiring, you have to be mindful and hire people that meet the criteria of course, and that they’re trustworthy. “Not everything that shines is Gold”. However, taking the proper measure eliminates or narrows it down.

Getting yourself an extra set of “eye’s in the sky” wouldn’t be a bad move either. You’ll have eyes and ears on the business at all times, and it helps you keep an eye out for sticky fingers IF someone has them, employee or visitors.

Step 4: Perimeter Surveillance

You can never be too safe, so why not take the “eyes in the sky” from inside of the business to the outside. Installing cameras on the outside of your business will show everyone that you’re serious about your security, and you mean business. Not only will it be a red flag for burglars trying to get in, but it’s also a red flag to those burglars or trespassers that rather stay on the outside. Vandalism, loss or stealing of personal property, or even those pesky little dumpster divers that you’ve been eager to catch, are just a few of the things you’ll be able to  If you’re unable to install security surveillance equipment, it can still help to make the public think you do have it. Displaying signs that your business is being monitored makes you a less tempting target to thieves.

In addition to high-tech security solutions, traditional measures like security fencing can help to protect your company. Barriers deter intruders from making their way onto your property, and they can work in conjunction with perimeter detection systems to reduce your risk of theft. From the inside and OUT.

Step 5: Lock Up and Secure Windows and Doors

It’s easy to forget a few steps of your daily routine, like, locking a door, or a window. But a small mistake like that can cost you a lot of money. Investing in well-made windows and doors for your business can make a difference. Metal frames are best. Always conduct a perimeter check in your business,  inspect the windows and doors of your establishment before and after every shift. Window and door contacts are installed by the security companies and come with most security systems. They’re good for detecting if any window or door is open and when. Your monitoring center will notify you of this at all times.

When installing the right windows, doors, and locks for your business, it’s important not to cut corners to try and save money.  What’s more important is your employees should all know how to lock up and enable the alarm system. If not, designate 1 person to be the trustee with the alarm codes and keys for lockup and opening.

Protecting Your Business with Professional Security Systems

Today, having a business is a big deal. That’s why making sure you take care of it is important. Keeping your family and business is always your priority. Always make sure that you go with a company that makes you feel safe and provides you & your business with the proper tools. I hope these steps were helpful to them, as they were to me.
