Intruder Alarm Installation For Retail

According to the most recent figures published by the Centre For Retail Research, the cost to retail from crime in 2019 was a staggering £4.82 million. Which seems like a very good reason to look into the benefits of Intruder Alarm Installation for retail.

Retail Crime At Night

When a retail outlet is open and staffed it’s less likely to be targeted and easier to take preventative measures.

From security guards, to CCTV and security tags on products, there are several ways to reduce the risk of any theft or vandalism during the day.

At night however, retail units, like all empty properties are more vulnerable.

An intruder alarm is one security solution and let’s have a look at why you should choose Mayfair Security to install one for you.

Quite often burglary or vandalism is a spur of the moment activity so an inviting shop window could be like a red rag to a bull.
