I decided to open a small AC repair shop about 3 years ago.
It was difficult to find cheap shop space, so I ended up on the outskirts of town.
We often have trouble with vandalism and solicitors. A few weeks ago, someone broke half of the windows at the shop and spray-painted graffiti all over one of the AC repair trucks. I had insurance, but I didn’t have any leads to give the police. I didn’t have any security cameras or CCTV. After talking with the police, I decided to purchase some surveillance equipment. I researched a few cameras online, and I even thought about installing all of the electronics myself. When I realized the job would be much harder than I anticipated, I decided to hire an alarm company to install all of the equipment. There is a camera near the front door of the AC repair shop, and there is also another camera near the loading dock. There is a motion detector that trips lights in the event of a security breach. The alarm has been installed for two weeks now, and it’s been one problem after another. Something keeps tripping the camera and the security equipment. Each time the police have been alerted, there has been no trouble at the AC repair shop. I’m starting to become aggravated, because I am the only person who can turn off the alarm. It’s a 45-minute drive to and from the shop. I thought the security features would be a great way to protect the AC repair shop, but it just seems like a lot of trouble.
