6 Reasons Cloud Access is a MUST for your Business
Whether you have one office door or 100 doors, you can’t always be around to manage who is accessing your building or facility.
Using cloud-based security technology gives you the freedom to manage one or multiple locations for any device – your desktop, tablet or smartphone – from a single account.
Check out these 6 reasons why cloud access is a must for your business or community.
Mobile Convenience & Flexibility
Think of your smartphone. Do you remember not having it with you at all times? You don’t just talk to people with your smartphone, you can share documents, access your bank account, control your thermostat, manage your smarter alarm system and so much more.
Cloud-based access control allows you to access to your facility or community from anywhere, anytime on any device. It buys you hours of precious time and increases productivity.
Image eliminating these tasks from your to-do list:
- Being chained to your desktop to control users, groups or access control settings.
- Driving to your facility if a key or credential is forgotten to let someone in.
- Being on-site to open the doors for contractors, vendors or deliveries.
- Needing to be there in person to open your facility for special or unexpected events.
- Storing keys in a key safe.
- Tracking who has what key, for which doors.
- Chasing down vendors or contractors for keys or credentials after project completions.
- New keys for new employees and collecting keys from former employees.
Reliable Management & Maintenance
Managing your access control system shouldn’t be another area of concern. With Alarm Engineering’s cloud solutions, managing software and hardware yourself (or needing to have an IT person on-staff to manage it) is a thing of the past. Let the experts handle it while you focus on what you do best – running your business.
In addition to removing the hassle, cost and complexity of an old-fashioned access control system, cloud-based access also provides more secure, redundant services that are future-proof. Your data is housed in redundant data centers that are monitored 24/7/365.
Simply Better Security
Think of the old-fashioned ways of securing doors – a lock and key. How secure is it, really? Anyone can get a hold of a key, replicate it and get access to your facility. No one is intentionally losing keys, but it happens all the time anyway.
With cloud-based access control, take advantage of simply smarter business security with real-time management so you can instantly revoke credentials, from anywhere.
Real-Time Access to Data
Gone are the days where you have to wait for a report until the following month. Today’s businesses operate in real-time, which makes real-time data essential. Plus, with the cloud – never worry about your data being lost.
See who enters or tampers with your location in real-time, so you can take corrective measures now.
Cloud-based security allows you to find new ways to be efficient. For example, one popular integration with access control system is your current HR system. Anytime a new employee joins your company, they are automatically granted access to your facilities. No more having separate logins for two different systems. The same goes for when an employee leaves or a contractor’s project is completed.
Another popular integration is camera integration. If you’re digging through hours of recordings to find specific events or identify threats, your video surveillance could be doing more for you. Connecting your access control with your business cameras saves valuable time and resources.
Your business is growing – you need a security and access solution that grows with you. Whether you grow by physical space or staff or both, Alarm Engineering powered by Brivo has you covered.
