How Installing a Surveillance System Deters Criminals Before You Even Record Anything

surveillance system installationSurveillance systems are as much deterrents as they are a reliable way to identify potential shoplifters and other criminals to stop or prosecute them. Installing a surveillance system on your business’ property is the first step toward reducing crime. Even in low-crime areas, shoplifting is still a problem. Install or update your surveillance system and watch your shoplifting problems decline.

Seeing Cameras in Action

When planning surveillance system installation, the experts at Sound Design manage to make the sleek cameras stand out without ruining the store’s décor. You want some your cameras seen. It sends the message to potential shoplifters that they’re being watched and they shouldn’t bother stealing anything. At the same time, we’ll also install some less obvious cameras so anyone brave enough to steal anyway won’t know where to stand to hide from the cameras entirely.

Pasting Warning Signs

At the entryway or cash register, post a notice to go along with your surveillance system that shoplifters will be prosecuted. You might even have some monitors on display behind the counter so potential criminals know they’re being recorded and have little chance of succeeding.

Stopping Vandalism

Put a notice about your security system by the front and back doors and allow us to install outdoor cameras that cover these locations. Vandals who attempt to spray paint buildings or throw rocks through windows are less likely to do so with a complete surveillance system that shines a light and puts a camera on passersby because it’s motion-detecting at night.

Ideal Occasions for ‘Breaking in’ Your New Home Theater

surround sound home theater systemsThe day you’ve dreamed about is almost here when you can sit back on your comfortable recliner or sofa and watch a movie, game, or TV show on a huge-screen TV with state-of-the-art surround sound. Since the theater experience is always more fun with other people, plan a celebration with friends and family. Invite them over just because or tie the event into a special occasion.

A Big Sports Game

There are fewer opportunities more suited to show off surround sound home theater systems with a large group of friends and family than a big sports game. Cheer on the home team and watch replays on the largest screen possible. Feel the euphoria when your team scores as the noise of the crowd is relayed through your speakers.

A Movie Premiere

Host your own movie premiere as soon as you buy a Blu-Ray or get a stream of a recent blockbuster or a classic film – the more action in the movie and the more intense the soundtrack is, the better. Experience the movie like you would at a cinema without dealing with the annoyance of so many other people and enjoy being able to pause the film whenever you need to refresh your snacks.

A Holiday Parade

Host a holiday party and make the broadcast of a big parade the centerpiece of the experience. Feel like you’re right there at the site, looking at the floats and big balloons in all of their detail and glory. Listen to the hosts’ commentary or channel holiday music through your system instead and enjoy the conversation with your guests.

While you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy a home theater, it can be a lot of fun to show off your new system. It’s more affordable than you might think. Just call a Sound Design representative today to get started designing a one-of-a-kind home theater experience for your TV room, rec room, basement, or garage.
