Small Business Solutions

As a locally owned business ourselves, Alarm Engineering understands the constant challenges of the small business owner. You make sure the shelves are stocked, the staff is ready and working efficiently, pay the bills, and then get payroll ready. All before lunch.

Did you know there is a scalable solution that can help manage your small business more effectively and efficiently for less than you think? That solution is video.

How Does Video Help Me?

Today’s high-quality video solution securely transmits information via the internet so you can view live or recorded video from anywhere with your username and password. Your video is encrypted and transmitted from your business to our secure site. Plus, with no recorder to purchase and maintain, it’s future-proof!

You already know video improves the safety and security of your customers and staff and allows you to keep a handle on loss prevention. Going beyond the many security benefits, video solutions from Alarm Engineering offers you operations and merchandising tools as well.

Solving Problems

  • Understand what your traffic patterns are and make better decisions.
    • People counter solutions allow you to track how many potential customers came in, not just how many decided to buy.
  • Track what merchandising decisions are working for you.
    • Automatically track traffic and end-caps or other areas to track dwell time and traffic
    • Use heat maps to instantly see the dead areas and bottlenecks for short and long term solutions.
  • Out of Stock
    • When you’re shelves are empty, everyone loses. Video helps prevent these issues by informing you or your vendors when items are out of stock.
  • POS Issues
    • Be aware of cashier-related shortages by tracking certain patterns and behavior like incorrect return processing, manually entered values and unauthorized discounts.
    • Identify “Sweetheart” deals!
    • Always know you’re store’s wait time so you can react quickly and make better staff coverage decisions as patterns emerge.
    • Discover which of your processes or rules aren’t being followed and by whom.
  • Deliveries
    • Don’t waste time watching deliveries, your cameras can catch everything.
    • Optimize security and operations with intelligent features that recognize when a truck is at the loading dock and can identify suppliers by license plate and integrate with your other systems to know if deliveries are complete.
    • Use our security tools to remotely unlock your doors and disarm your system so you don’t have to go into the store when you have unexpected deliveries.
  • Parking lot and drive thru
    • Intelligent video can keep track of people and vehicles in your parking lot or drive thru, helping you deter crime, minimize injury risk and enforce parking regulations.
