|E. Transom windows |

|Equipment located within reach of street level windows creates an attractive target for the window-smash burglar. One or more of the following|
|steps can discourage this type of crime. |
| | | |
|Move all equipment away from the window so it cannot be reached if window is broken. |
|Install a secondary barrier between the window and the equipment, such as grills and/or gratings. |
|Replace the present windows with burglary resistant glazing material. |
|Lock or bolt all portable equipment to desk or table surfaces. |
|Install security film on windows. |


|A clear view from the outside, when tempting equipment is not visible, can help police spot suspicious conditions or activities. |

| |unobstructed view of the interior of the facility. |
|2. |Keep windows clear of obstructions. |
|3. |Contact your local law enforcement agency, advising them of your regular procedure. |


|Two types of glazing deters the window-smash burglar: |
| | |
|LAMINATED GLASS comes in several thicknesses. The thicker the lamination, the better the resistance. Although this type of material will |
|break with sufficient force, it will take a burglar much longer to create a hole large enough to get through. |
|POLYCARBONATES are the best glazing materials currently available. While this material is expensive, it will not freeze, burn, or break. |


|Untrimmed shrubbery offers the burglar an excellent hiding place, especially if it is near windows, doors, thin walls, or fences. Given |
|adequate time and concealment, burglars have been known to penetrate solid walls, including those made of heavy brick. |
| | |

| | |
|1. |The unit should be permanently secured to the wall, preferably with carriage bolts through the wall. |
|2. |Once the bolts are installed and the nuts tightened, strip the threads to prevent easy removal. |

|B. Window type |
| | |
|1. |Fill the space between the unit and the window frame with 2 inch thick wood secured to the window frame with carriage bolts. |
|2. |Secure the unit to the wood. |


|Grills and gratings provide additional security for windows and other openings, and can be installed in ways that enhance the looks of a |
|building. |
| | |
|1. |They must be installed on the inside of the opening and secured to make it difficult for intruders to get around them. |
| | |
|2. |The openings between grills and gratings should not exceed 6 inches. Where equipment is located near windows, you may need smaller |
| |openings, depending on the type and size of the equipment. |
|3. |Accordion and roll-down metal covers should be used for front windows. |
| | |
|4. |Fixed grills or gratings are used to cover rear windows, roof vents, air conditioning vents, and skylights. |
| | |
|5. |All grills and gratings should have a fire release from the interior. |

|C. Glass in door |
| | |
|1. |Secure doors with small panes of glass in one of the |Replace the glass with a burglary resistant glazing material. |
| |following ways: |Replace the door with a solid wood or metal door. |
| | |Protect the glass with grills or gratings. |
|2. |If there is glass within 36 inches of the locking |Add a double cylinder dead bolt lock. |
| |mechanism: | |

| | |
|1. |Use at least a single cylinder 1-1/2 inch dead bolt equipped with a hardened steel roller bearing and cylinder guard. |

|E. Double doors |
| | | |
|1. |Secure stationary or inactive doors with a 1 inch hard |The bolt actuator should not be movable or accessible when doors are |

| | | |
|1. |Contact a reputable office equipment supply store to obtain information on the various types of lock-down devices available. |
|2. |Regardless of the type of lock-down device used on your equipment, be sure that the machine is secured to a non-removable part of a |
| |desk, table, or bench. Never use a lock-down device on a mobile stand or cart. |


|Exposed pins can be easily removed and the door opened from the hinge side. There are four ways to secure these hinge pins: |
| | | |
|1. |Remove the existing hinges and replace them with ones having non-removable hinge pins. |
|2. |Spot weld the hinge pin to the hinge. |
|3. |If the hinge screw holes opposite each other match: |a. Remove one screw from each leaf of the hinge opposite each other. |
| | |b. Insert a small round-headed screw or finishing nail, approximately 1 |
| | |inch long, into the leaf jamb, leaving 1/2 inch. |

Site Survey

...Wireless Survey Research With wireless systems, it’s very difficult to predict the propagation of radio waves and detect the presence of interfering signals without the use of test equipment. Walls, doors, elevator shafts, people, and other obstacles offer varying degrees of attenuation, causing the RF radiation pattern to be irregular and unpredictable. As a result, it’s absolutely necessary to perform a wireless site survey to fully understand the behavior of radio waves within the operating environment before installing access points. The goal of a wireless site survey is to determine the number and placement of access points that provides adequate signal coverage throughout a facility. A wireless site survey also detects the presence of RF interference coming from other sources that could degrade the performance of the wireless LAN. Also keep in mind that the facility of the WLAN is highly impactful on the whether it requires a survey. For example a small room office may not require a site survey. With the given example a small office might only require an access point or a router located within the office to require adequate coverage. A larger facility is going to require a well scoped survey to be able to provide sufficient coverage to all areas, and if a larger facility isn’t properly surveyed other areas in the facility might be affected by poor coverage or no coverage. Example of these areas would be airports, hospitals, colleges. When conducting a site survey......

This survey will generate recommendations for maximizing network security, coverage, and capacity. Expert Advice Earlier this year, the board of directors of Orchard Street Art Center asked me to propose a plan to improve wireless coverage throughout the center’s public areas, offices, classrooms, music studios and indoor and outdoor theaters. To make sure I proposed the most effective plan possible, I decided to seek the advice of experts.

Site Survey Memo

...Penultimatum, Inc. To: Helen Gibbs From: Harvey Miller CC: Amy Collins Date: 6/24/2011 Re: Site Survey for Requested Wireless Network In regards to the requested wireless network project, it is very important that we are given a sufficient amount of time and adequate resources to conduct a site survey prior to installing the network. A site survey will help us to determine whether there are other wireless networks in the area and which band is needed to ensure minimal interference and optimal performance. Purchasing network devices that support multiple bands will cost more than purchasing devices that support a single band and will also increase the time needed to configure each device on the network. By taking the time to do a site survey, you will also help make planning the network more efficient and cost effective by helping to determine what channels and signal strengths are needed in relation to the other wireless networks in the area. This should help avoid the inevitable time cost of having multiple configuration changes due to not knowing which channels and configurations will work best within the environment. The survey will also help us determine whether the buildings are well suited for wireless networks or not. If we move forward the assuming that a wireless network will perform according to expectations and find out after purchasing and installing the equipment that a building with plaster walls has a metal frame that does not permit wireless......
