Burglar Alarm Systems in Hotels

Traveling can be a fun part of life, or perhaps the downside to a job. According to the U.S. Travel Association, Americans are expected to take 322 million domestic leisure trips during June, July and August of 2009. All of this travel means a lot of hotel stays. This article focuses on burglar alarm systems in hotels.

Burglar Alarm Systems Top Concern

As a former hotel employee, I know that burglar alarm systems are a top concern of most reputable companies. I went through extensive training to ensure guests have a secure, home-like stay. Sadly, not all properties put safety first or even install burglar alarm systems to protect their guests. Sometimes it is due to lack of funding for proper burglar alarm systems tools, while other times it is due to lack of training of the staff, or just inattentive staff. By following the tips below, you can help protect yourself while away from the security of your own home.

First of all, choose your property wisely. Larger chains tend to have higher, or at least more enforced, standards. Training tools are unified across properties in an effort to make it possible to know what to expect at each hotel.

Choosing Hotel vs Motel and considering Burglar Alarm Systems

When choosing your property, consider a hotel design over a motel design. Motels over outside access to each room from the parking lot to provide easier loading and unloading of the vehicle. Hotels require guests to enter from the main lobby, through secured side entrances and most likely to have a burglar alarm system. The most effectively designed hotels require all guests to pass by the front desk to access the rooms. This means pizza deliveries and all other visitors are seen by the front desk. The hotel I worked for did not allow deliveries to the rooms. Food deliveries had to stop at the front desk and the clerk would call the room to notify the guest of a delivery in the lobby. While it may seem inconvenient to the hotel guest, it is also for his/her safety and the safety of other guests. The front desk employee is able to watch the transaction and sees that the delivery person exits the property after the delivery rather than wandering around the hotel.

Burglar Alarm Systems in emergency

All emergency exits should be locked and not able to be opened from the outside. Any alternate entrances to a property should require a room key to open. Never prop a door open to haul in your belongings and if you see someone doing this, remove the device propping it open and instead over to hold the door for them. This keeps you both safe from someone looking for an opportunity to enter the hotel.

While you are entrusting your safety to a hotel property, your safety is essentially your own responsibility. Do not engage in unsafe behavior. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Report any suspicious activity to staff immediately, and always lock your door. Following these simple tips will help to keep your trip enjoyable.
