For instance, one of the most underrated, yet powerful ways to protect your business is with better lighting.

Better Bar and Restaurant Security in 2023

Throughout the Tri-State Area, our cities and townships are making intentional efforts to create safer dining and social environments in 2023. Everything from alcohol service to high amounts of onsite cash can put a restaurant at risk of theft and legal liabilities. This risk calls for advanced security camera technology. If your current cameras aren’t recording clearly enough to identify faces, monitor the alcohol consumption behavior of patrons, and make sure the cash is being handled properly, it’s time for a strategic camera conversion.
