Due to a high frequency of clients, alcohol and the use of cash on a daily basis, the demands for a sophisticated security program are very high.

Retail crime is slashing shop profits according to two of the largest studies ever conducted in Australia. Some of the facts that have come out of the surveys make for very concerning reading:
1) protecting your office and employees from theft

Protecting your Office from Theft is a matter of physical security – Theft Prevention is your leading supplier for office security for over 35 years!
Office security is an issue for every business, no matter the size.
There are many steps that can be taken to improve security, many of which require relatively inexpensive outlays. To find out what is best for his or her company, a small business owner should hire a security consultant to visit the business premises and conduct a thorough security analysis. This review can identify weak spots and provide a clear plan for upgrading security.
The best place to start when examining office security is the physical layout of the office itself, or the layout of the larger building of which the office is a part.

Doors and windows are the most obvious access points to an office and should be secure. The use of electronic intruder systems has been proven effective over the last few decades.
Innovations in electronics, computers, and other high-tech security features like an app on your phone that sends you pictures of the crime have given business owners new tools to fight crime in recent years. Perhaps the most common electronic tools are CCTV systems and access control systems.
Closed circuit surveillance systems monitor specific areas of a company’s work space.
With a good recorder and an appropriate monitor, you can secure your office against potential threats quite easily. Ask us here about your customized CCTV systems.
Alarm systems are another popular office security tool.
There are many different alarm systems, especially for offices – with so many different ways to control access and monitor working hours.

Electronic security for warehouses require a very specific mix of security measures.
Warehouses need a solid 24/7 camera surveillance system to be able to protect cargo, access control and prevent theft.
CCTV cameras should be utilized to monitor premises and prevent unauthorized access to cargo handling and storage areas. Retrieval of recorded activities should be maintained for a reasonable period.
Cargo discrepancies, employee activity and making sure all safety measures are met are only a few of many benefits of a CCTV system.

Warehouse Alarm Systems
Warehouses tend to use alarm systems in very customized ways due to the fact they mostly have more staff involved.
You might also want to turn the alarm on for the office, but off for other areas of the warehouse. Theft Prevention is proficient with that – our name is our business.
Most warehouses benefit from an access control system. Not only to track the hours of staff, but also to track deliveries, prevent theft and make sure the business is running well.
Theft Prevention is your specialized security provider for warehouse security – we customize security solutions to your needs and help you understand ways to make sure your business is safe.
Our clients have repeatedly reported that our systems have a positive effect on their customers. They have said in numerous testimonials and feedback that customers feel more secure when shopping, and surveillance also removes the possibility of wrongfully apprehending a valued customer.
Staff respond exceptionally well to the introduction of the systems as it removes any uncertainty that staff and business owners may have. It also acts as a deterrent against aggressive behaviour from customers and reduces the possibility of armed hold-ups.
When one of our security advisors visits your premises, they take the time to understand your business and what you require from the system. They will then draw up comprehensive plans and tailor make a system specifically for you and your business. This will include what type of cameras and lenses to use to give you the best results from your system. Theft Prevention also offers a comprehensive security audit that can assist you in protecting your business holistically.
Theft Prevention recommends the installation of a monitor at the entrance that only shows the main entrance camera, as this clearly shows any potential thief or opportunist that you have a very clean picture of them entering your premises if they are going to be foolish enough to attempt to steal anything.
Theft Prevention only uses Embedded Linux which is the latest digital video surveillance recorder. Embedded Linux is the most stable operating platform available that is crash resistant, hacker proof and specifically designed for security. Our system record 100 frames per second for a 4 channel system, 200 frames per second for our 8 channel system, 300 frames per second for our 12 channel system and 400 frames per second for our 16 channel system. This allows our customers to have smooth and clear playback at 25 frames per second per camera. Most other systems offer between 50-100 frames per second for a 16 channel system. Other platforms such as Windows allows operators or staff to go in and delete files while the owner is away and can also render the system inoperative if the hard drive fails. This is why we only use Embedded Linux.
Theft Prevention offers its customers 4, 8, 12, 16 and 32 channel systems with the option of networking them together to a maximum of 64 cameras. Whether you are looking for 1 camera or 64 cameras we can provide the right security equipment to best suit your needs.
There are no limits to the size of the hard drive we can offer. Theft Prevention does offers it clients 100 gigabytes per 4 channels, so the 4 channel system has 100 gigabytes, the 8 channel system comes with 200 GB, 12 channel systems has 300 GB and the 16 channel has 400 GB. This gives our clients approximately 2-3 weeks recordings depending on the amount of movement that takes place on the premises. We can also offer our clients 1.5 terabytes with an expansion card and up to 6 terabytes with a NAS option.
Yes. Our systems are compatible with most point of sales systems. Our security advisors will be able to determine if your point of sales system is compatible with our digital video surveillance system.
At Theft Prevention we offer our clients various finance packages. Most of our clients choose to rent the system as it is 100% tax deductible, comes with a 4 year warranty, requires no capital outlay and allows you budget for the system each month.
At Theft Prevention we do not use cheap own-brand equipment like most other companies. That is why we have the confidence to offer you 4 years warranty when the system is rented, or 2 years warranty when the system is purchased.
At Theft Prevention we only use quality known brands such as Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Gantz and Ikegami to name a few. It is our belief that you can’t use the same camera throughout your entire business, as each camera needs to be selected based on the conditions it will operate in. We also offer infrared, vandal-proof, day/night, high resolution, auto iris cameras that allow our customers to achieve the best footage available in all conditions.
Our technicians are hospitable and friendly at all times from the day they enter your premises to the day they leave. Their work is also conducted with the minimal impact to your business and we guarantee your business will be left clean and tidy each day they finish. To support this claim if you are not completely satisfied with the cleanliness when they have completed their work we will pay for a cleaner to visit your premises and professionally clean the area from top to bottom.
We always try and bring the cameras down as low as possible looking down the aisles when designing the systems as this gives you the clearest and best results from your system. If you position the cameras on the ceiling you will generally only see the top of a person’s head and not necessarily identify what they have stolen or where they have concealed the goods. It is our belief that camera position is critical when designing the right system for our customers.
Yes. We also have a technical IT support team that can help you set up the system and also provide you with the correct broadband plans to achieve the best results.
