Today we’re adapting to a new normal that encourages social distancing. States have closed non-essential businesses and ordered people to shelter in place. So, what’s that mean for the security of your business? Luckily, advanced security technology makes it possible to keep an eye on your business, even when you’re not there.
1. Remote Unlock Features
Contemporary access control systems have a remote unlock feature that allows you to unlock a door at your business from almost anywhere at any time. It’s perfect when an employee needs access, or there’s a delivery, and you’re not there. System administrators can provide end-users access through the control center or on a mobile device.
2. Hands-Free Access Control
Access control systems make it easy to enter your building hands-free if you’re able to check on your business. You can:
- Unlock doors with the security app on your smartphone
- Install an automatic door lock for completely hands-free access
3. IP Video Surveillance
IP video surveillance is different than traditional security cameras. Each IP security camera has its own IP address, and you can connect several on one switch. Some of these cameras are easy to move around your property where you need them, and you can access the system remotely.
All you need to do to check on your business is remote into the camera system to get a real-time view of what’s going on. You can manage your system through a mobile device or control center and even share the footage with law enforcement if a crime occurs on your property.
4. Video Monitoring
Video monitoring is another great security solution that means cameras are recording footage 24/7. Owners can set up the system to send alerts for motion triggers to their mobile device but with frequent false alarms the alerts on exterior systems tend to get ignored over time.
Live surveillance combines AI, video analytics, and the human element to watch your property 24/7. These intelligent cameras detect motion and stream live video of the event to a central hub where AI and analytics identify true threats. If the system detects a threat it sends the video to a live agent who can intervene vocally. If they can’t stop the threat, they notify law enforcement quickly. These live agents usually have a security or law enforcement background. This service used to be quite expensive but now it’s more economically priced.
That’s four ways you can monitor your business from afar. For more information on how video monitoring and access control can help your business, contact a professional security integrator.
