As environmental threats to humanity are on the rise, it is more important than ever for companies to make eco-conscious decisions. The use of solar power is an infinite, underutilized, and sustainable resource to businesses across the world.
According to the U.S Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, “The amount of sunlight that strikes the earth’s surface in an hour and a half is enough to handle the entire world’s energy consumption for a full year.”

AMAROK made the switch to solar power in 1993 out of the company founder's desire to be more environmentally conscious and also to provide our customers with a security solution that is not solely reliant on utility power.

Pushing Your Luck with Property Crime

Pushing Your Luck with Property Crime

Ever wonder why there aren’t more holidays in March? We have the official start of spring (March 20) and the Ides of March (March 15)—which isn’t so much a holiday as it is a stark reminder that Julius Caesar probably should have picked his friends better.

It’s the holiday in between that Americans really look forward to: St. Patrick’s Day (March 17). While it began as a religious celebration in the 17th century to commemorate the life of Saint Patrick and his role in bringing Christianity into Ireland, it’s evolved into a celebration of green beer, leprechauns and the luck of the Irish.

Speaking of luck, our blog topic this week highlights the roles that good luck and bad luck play in commercial-property burglaries. So, in honor of the first ever St. Patrick’s Day parade, which was held in Boston in 1737, our first crime story is set in the same city, featuring a bad guy with the most iconic of Irish last names: Murphy.

The Great Super Bowl Ring Heist

In February 2008, Sean Murphy, a die-hard New England Patriots football fan and self-proclaimed master thief, watched in disbelief as the New York Giants upset his beloved Pats in Super Bowl XLII. (That means ‘42’—we’re not good at Roman numerals, either.)

As luck would have it, Murphy later discovered the name and address of the company contracted to produce the fancy rings awarded to the champions of each Super Bowl. Ironically, the company creating the rings for the New York Giants that year was located about an hour south of Boston. (Irony and Luck are frequent companions, it would seem.)

Murphy recruited two other men to assault E.A. Dion’s 30,000-square-foot, single-story warehouse, where they disabled the alarm system and cut a hole in the roof to gain entry. They got away with it, too, stealing more than $2 million in jewelry, gold and diamonds, including over two dozen New York Giants Super Bowl rings.

We’re not judging, but they probably didn’t need much luck to break into this building.
