How to Stop Burglaries at Your Smoke Shop

A Google search of “smoke shop burglary” over the past month brings up 30,600 results! What are you doing to protect you business during these crazy times

Here are a few tips for keeping your business safe from a break-in:

Stop Them at the Door

A sturdy, protective door will help prevent many burglars from causing harm to your business. Solid-core wood or reinforced steel are great materials for keeping burglars out. Installing deadbolt locks with heavy-duty strike plates are also a great addition that will increase the security of any entrances.

Be sure that the door hinges are located on the inside of the building, of course, to ensure they can’t be removed from the outside by potential burglars.

Shoot Them (with cameras)

Closed-circuit television cameras provide businesses with video surveillance and capture images or recordings of what goes on when you’re not there. Just the mere presence of surveillance cameras could discourage potential criminals and protect your business during both operating and non-operating hours.

Be sure to store any footage away from your site, while placing cameras in strategic locations, in order to identify people’s faces. 

Lock Them Out

It’s crucial to remember to review and replace your locks regularly – especially if think someone could still have access to the store. 

Be sure to consider smart locks. These may be a bit more costly initially but they will allow you to take advantage of features such as audit trails (to see who has opened the door and when) and access control, which come in handy if you have a high turnover of staff.
