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. 

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Check out these 6 reasons why cloud access is a must for your business or community.

Access to your facility from anywhere is a must for your business

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.

Save time, hassle, cost and complexity of traditional access control solutions

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 Smarter Business Security from Alarm Engineering powered by Brivo

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 your business data from Alarm Engineering

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.

Smarter Security integrates with video cameras and more

Integrated Systems

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.

Secure business growth with Alarm Engineering

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.

Holiday Security Tips aren't just for homeowners.  Make sure you follow these security tips to keep your business running smoothly during the holidays so you can relax.

Holiday Security Tips for your Business

Holiday Security Tips aren’t just for homeowners. Make sure you follow these holiday security tips to keep your business running smoothly during the holidays.

  1. Update us with your special holiday hours. If you use our supervised open and close service, we’re letting you know if employees are coming and going outside the open and close times you specify. Let us know if your hours have changed during the holidays so we won’t send you needless alerts. If you use our Commercial Alarm.com service, you can update these times yourself by logging in to your account
  2. Make sure your call list is current. If the alarm sounds, make sure the correct people are contacted. Call our office to review who is on your call list today 410-546-2210 or update them using our website now.
  3. Doublecheck your video system. If your have a video monitoring system, make sure that it is working properly before you close up for the holidays. If you don’t have a video monitoring system at the office today, read here why video is an important addition to your security system and give us a call for a free consultation.
  4. Reduce false alarms. Many businesses decorate to celebrate the holiday. Make sure that your decorations aren’t blocking your video cameras. If you have motion detectors, make sure no decorations are moving or could be moved when the heat comes on.
  5. Be on your guard. Seasonal employees are a must for many businesses during the holidays. An access control system can make sure only certain employees can access special areas. Access control also means it’s easy to give seasonal employees access to the building and terminate that access when the holiday rush is over.
  6. Test your system. We always recommend testing your system on a regular basis, including your panic buttons. Be sure to call us at 410-546-2210 before you begin testing your system so we don’t alert the authorities!

We are here to help! If you haven’t investigated all the tools available for businesses including video, reporting and automation, access, security and fire/life safety give our team a call at 410-545-2210. We will come out and provide a detailed security assessment absolutely free. Use FIRSTMONTHFREE for even more savings.
