When planning a security system for your business, you must acknowledge the differences between a residential and commercial setting. Although security is equally important in both situations, it is important to understand that different security measures must be taken in each situation.
Since a home is typically vacant during daylight hours but people are typically at home at night, the risk of theft is diminished to some degree.

Since a lot of criminal activity takes place in the dark, it is important to protect your business during late night hours.
